Let me introduce you to Brian Ferrelli. He needs an introduction because most of you are reading this and thinking “Who the f*ck is Brian Ferrelli?” Hell, I didn’t know who this chucklehead was until I did some research. Ferrelli apparently is a Knicks fan, or at least he claims to be. Regardless if he’s a Knicks fan or not, he’s the epitome of what a fan shouldn’t be (so start taking notes). Here’s the stunt Ferrelli pulled:
Being the good Knicks fan he is, Brian decided to send a tweet to Amare Stoudamire. Instead of giving him well wishes and how he can’t wait until next season, he decided to admonish Stoudamire for his play. I didn’t see the actual tweet, but whatever it said it twisted Amare’s balls in a serious way because he sent a private message to Ferrelli. In this message he dropped some type of homophobic slur toward Ferrelli. From there Ferrelli took a screen shot of this tweet and posted it on his Twitter account for the world to see. This resulted in the NBA fining Stoudamire $50,000 for the remarks he made.
Before I get to Ferrelli and why he deserves a punch in the face I’d like to address Stoudamire.
In no way do I condone what Amare did and I know he’s not the first person in the spotlight who ended up sticking their foot in their mouth thanks to social media. With today’s technology everybody is on Twitter and as exciting it is for some to interact with athletes and celebrities, sometimes they go too far. This results in some athletes or celebrities taking it to the idiot extreme and responding in a real stupid manner. What Amare should have done is realize that the fan is just another asshole and move on. Sending him a message and calling him a fag, queer, or homo isn’t cool or called for. He should know better.
Now let’s get back to dipshit Ferrelli.
First off the original tweet he sent wasn’t even warranted. While his numbers last season were down from his career averages, he still averaged 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 1 block per game. That’s not too shabby considering he played his first full season with a shoot-first player in Carmelo Anthony and dealt with nagging injuries. If Ferrelli knew his ass from his elbow when it comes to the game of basketball, he would have expected somewhat of a drop in Stoudamire’s stats. The fact he sent the tweet just proves he’s an ill-informed jackass.
Secondly, what the f*ck was the purpose of posting the private message? So he could impress his loser friends by having some kind of internet street cred because he pissed off an NBA All-Star? If that’s the case it’s pretty lame. Maybe he was actually offended by the message. If that’s the case he needs to man the f*ck up and quit being a pussy. While how Stoudamire responded was wrong, when you attack somebody for no reason, you should expect some type of retaliation. Quit being so f*cking sensitive. Ferrelli should know that no one likes a tattle tale. Be a man, accept it, and move on. Don’t run to mommy trying to get someone in trouble.
Cry Meter: Punching this guy is going to be a piece of cake. I’ll crack him in the chops and he’ll drop like a little bitch. The problem in hitting a clown like this is he’s definitely going to call the cops and most likely sue me (after he tweets about it). I’ll be willing to spend the night in a holding cell to punch this doucher in the face. 10 out of 10 tears
Am I out of line here? I tend to go off on a tangent so maybe I am (actually I’m not). Email me at email@example.com and let me know.
