My friend and compatriot Jacson Bevens tipped me off to an idea when he tweeted out this screenshot last week:
All these folks calling Russell Wilson greedy got me s'ing my damn h. pic.twitter.com/kXeicas95a— Jacson Bevens (@JacsonBevens) June 30, 2015
Let's highlight some of the worst of the week.
Russell Wilson says he will be 'ready to go' unless the Seahawks pay him upwards of $25 million/year. How greedy can you be playing a sport?— bill penny ¢ (@billpennyy) June 30, 2015
It's amazing what people will convince themselves of what they heard or read.
Russell Wilson needs to calm down with his contract. He is so greedy and ungrateful, he's getting plenty of money.— Jess Wood (@JessWood09) June 30, 2015
Jess wood play for free!
Sounds greedy, state should pay teachers more $ Report: Seahawks™ Russell Wilson wants to be highest-paid NFL player http://t.co/IXsux375TS— Sanrdra -LuckyMom (@Sandra_LKing) June 28, 2015

Ur man Russell Wilson prolly won't ever see the super bowl again until he break up with Ciara...nobody ever prospered while dating her smh— Grease Gawd (@Lawd_Ham_Mercy) June 30, 2015
Well, can't argue with that one.
As a #Seahawks fan, I can tell you that Russell Wilson is NOT worth $110 million dollars.— Aaron Polevoi (@aaronpolevoi) June 25, 2015
Phew, for a second I was worried that you weren't a Seahawks fan and therefore had no business saying what a player is worth.
"Here let me retweet Schefter but include a quote of what's in the tweet so you can read it twice."
And the winner of the week's worst tweet:
#RussellWilson Yer a great player and person, but dont be a greedy dick. 20 million is plenty for what u do. You aint curing cancer.— Jeff Kopis (@JeffKopis) July 4, 2015
Congrats to Jeff! Let's see if he can repeat next week ... in which case he'll be a greedy dick who wins too much.
