New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Shanle is usually pretty quiet on Twitter.  However, last night he had some interesting tweets for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

It’s become a custom for Goodell during the first round of the NFL Draft to share hugs, handshakes, and whispered words with the draft picks as they come out to receive their jersey and meet the public as the newest member of the NFL.

Almost half-way into the first round, Shanle tweeted this:

how bad does goodell want 2 find a way 2 fine these guys 4 something already..hmm dont like way wearing hat? shaking my hand? holding jersey?

An hour later he then tweeted this:

what goodell is saying to these draft picks as they embrace…. welcome to the nfl.  i cant wait to fine your ass for something!!

Shanle received much approval for these words from Saints fans.  Goodell speaks of the “integrity” of the game one second, then tries to get some serious “street cred” by doing a triple-dap handshake with defensive end Fletcher Cox.

    I mentioned this earlier in another post here Gene.  And I was wondering the same thing… what the hell is the hug about and what is he really saying to these kids?
    And once again, how will they feel about the “hug and whisper” when these D-newcomers get the hell fined out of them?
    Goodell is as fake as “pro” wrestling.
    But that’s cool.
    We, as Saints fans have been on the outside looking in for years… he can’t bring us down.
    And as David Lee Roth of Van Halen fame once said, “Once you get big enough for your head to stick over the fence (of success), then people start throwing tomatoes at you…”
    Consider us spaghetti sauce by now.
    Whatever… we will prevail!
