Twitter Outraged After Cam Newton Named #1 on NFL Top 100 (Tweets)
On Thursday the NFL Top 100 was unveiled. The list, which was determined by players, has Odell Beckham Jr. at no. 10, Rob Gronkowski at no. 9, Julio Jones at no. 8, Luke Keuchly at no. 7, Aaron Rodgers at no. 6, Adrian Peterson at no. 5, Antonio Brown at no. 4, and J.J. Watt at no. 3.
The top two? Tom Brady and Cam Newton.
Personally I could not care less about this list. It’s fun, and the top 10 seems pretty reasonable to me. But ultimately it means absolutely nothing, so I’m not going to waste my time debating it with people. Apparently I’m the only one who feels this way, though. After it was revealed that Cam Newton named the number one player in the NFL, thousands of fans took to Twitter to express their outrage.
As you would expect, the vast majority of them were butthurt Patriots fans who can’t believe Tawm Brady, the greatest gawddamn quarterback who ever lived, didn’t get the top spot.
Take a look:
I lost all respect 4 Cam Newton when he wouldn’t dive on a fumble WITH THE SUPER BOWL ON THE LINE, cause he was afraid of getting hurt #NFL

To call cam newton the best player in the nfl is a disgrace he isn’t even good enough to be considered one of the top 5 qb’s

Tom Brady wins Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP, next year is ranked 3 on Top 100, Cam Newton wins MVP and loses Super Bowl and is ranked 1

If Tom Brady isn’t no. 1 in the top 100, then that’s proof the nfl is rigged against him

I knew it was gonna happen but how is Cam Newton better than Tom Brady on any given day? Dude has too much hype and will never win a SB

Not happy Brady should of been #1 not #2 .. He played one of his best season even w/ players hurt. Cam Newton is no where as great as TB12

Obviously, there was no conspiracy here. But if there was, could you blame them? Who could pass up an opportunity to piss off the whiniest fan base in football?
