65. Everyone Talks Tough on Twitter...
Who: Wayne Rooney, Manchester United
Offending Tweet: @WayneRooney: "I will put u asleep within 10 seconds hope u turn up if u don't gonna tell everyone ur scared u little nit. I'll be waiting"
Consequence: His reps later having to explain that the tweet was done jokingly.
Even though soccer players have a history of ridiculous flops and dives, there are a rare few that you don't mess with. Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is definitely one of them. After a fan went off on a verbal tirade against the striker, Rooney threatened to put the guy to sleep in 10 seconds. Normally, this is something we'd pay to see but if it only lasts as long as Rooney promises, it's a huuuuge waste of money. Then again, aren't most PPV boxing matches, anyway?
