Tweet Of The Day – Brandon Spikes

New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is already feeling the heat for the above tweet.

The tweet earned much attention from the local news stations last night as well as talk on sports radio this morning. The NFL doesn’t typically step in on Twitter matters. The league didn’t fine Packers guard T.J. Lang for blasting the replacement officials for costing them a game against the Seahawks, and it didn’t fine Spikes for similar comments after the Pats’ loss to the Ravens. The Patriots could discipline Spikes under a personal conduct policy, but they usually keep such matters in-house.

In 2010 Spikes was suspended for the season when he tested positive for banned substances.
