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:

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?
