    Bills' Johnson tweets for N. Korea to bomb Foxboro

    LOL, Stevie being Stevie!

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/bills-j...8824--nfl.html

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson took to Twitter to attempt to make light about a potentially hostile situation.
    As a photo of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un surfaced last week with a U.S. map showing potential missile targets,
    Johnson suggested another potential destination, the Bills' AFC East rivals, the New England Patriots.
    "War is nothing to be played with. I apologize North Korea........but if y'all do bomb 1st... Bomb Foxboro, Mass. Sincerely,#BillsMafia," Johnson tweeted.
    In response to fan outrage, Johnson apologized a few hours later.

    Love it. Might as well take out Belly's Florida house as well while they're at it.

    I'm pissed he didn't say MetLife. Further proof we are now just an afterthought.

    We were never the main focus.

    Fan outrage? I bet 95% agree with him.

    Don't see what the big deal is...people need to be able to laugh at themselves. I can understand if he said something like NYC but other than there, clearly a lighthearted joke.

    You're right, but we live in a PC world where people love to claim insensitivety.

    I'm waiting for some idiot to demand punishment for Johnson.

    As someone who was injured in the last North Korean attack on American soil, I am deeply outraged by Johnson's joke

    I'll handle this:

    1. Johnson is an idiot and a jerk, and Goodell should fine him or suspend him for the Pats games this year.

    2. These athletes shouldn't be allowed to use Twitter.

    3. I also can't stand it when they showboat in the endzone after a TD.

    4. GET OFF MY LAWN.

    Now back to the politics forum where I will unveil my latest flat tax budget,

    My God, how could anyone suggest such a tragic event? Think of all the clam chowder that would be wasted.

    Right. And it's the good, white, creamy kind, not that yucky, red crap.
