Larry Johnson

"My father played for the coach from "rememeber the titans". Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn"

Larry Johnson really shouldn't be on Twitter. The volatile NFL running back already had a propensity for saying dumb things, but his Oct. 28 rant about Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley was particularly ill-advised, especially considering Johnson was averaging an abysmal 2.7 yards per carry during this season. And when fans called him out for his comments, which included a locker room homophobic rant against some local reporters, he was more than willing to create a fracas, responding "Sorry ur a cornball n ur mom birthed u broke. But I'm cakn patna. While u work or school for 5 dollas n hour. Ha!" After first being suspended from the team, @toonicon found himself cut entirely a week later. No word whether how unemployment has affected his "cakn" ability.
