    re: Melvin Ejim's Twitter

    There are always going to be a small amount of people in any large group that are total idiots.

    At least he seems to be handling the negatives well, anyone that's got the visibility of an athlete\celebrity is going to get hate tweets no matter what... either they can handle that or they should get off twitter.

    re: Melvin Ejim's Twitter

    Ejim usually retweets people who send him hateful tweets with "Thank you" or something along those lines. He plays with a chip on his shoulder quite well, lol.

    re: Melvin Ejim's Twitter

    I am frustrated that Fred had Ejim and Niang on the floor late when I feel other guys may (emphasis on may) have been better but I would never tweet directly at them with negatives.

    Hell I wouldn't even tweet directly at Fred. I started a thread to spark convo with others. I would never claim that I have the answers

    I have no idea. The **** Matt Thomas went through was ridiculous as well

    Edit - The Entitlement that individuals feel they have in our society disgusts me. Individuals need to focus more on their own responsibilities rather then rights or entitlements. Sure an individual may have the "right" to rip a player on twitter. But as a Cyclone Fan you have the responsibility to play your part as a fan and to add value or pick those up around you. It doesn't have to be all sunshine if things aren't going well, but it certainly shouldn't be an assault via twitter

    Agree. Why lash out at a player on Twitter? Ignorant!

    Yeah. Like because they buy tickets and a few shirts, these kids owe them a certain number of wins. (More than 22 :/) these kids don't owe you jack ****. You're not entitled to jack ****. I know the internet is great for being a whiny little brat anonymously, but the crap gets old.

    They're not fans. Fans don't do that.

    re: Melvin Ejim's Twitter

    The only way I can think of to combat this is for real fans to blow these jerks up on Twitter and mercilessly ridicule them.

    Agreed. Have no idea 'how many', but I certainly hope its just a 'few' idiots that are doing it. And a 'few' is too many.
