Surprise! Shitty Fans are Tweeting Shitty Things at Philly Brown

By Jason Priestas on January 4, 2014 at 1:13a

Philly Brown picked an awful time to muff a punt. With the Buckeyes holding a 29-20 3rd quarter lead and set to go back out on offense, his fumble handed Clemson the ball in great field position, which they quickly took advantage of to cut Ohio State's lead to two points. Two minutes later, Clemson scored again and they had momentum.

Some fans, it appears, just had to let Brown know how awful his play was, as if he doesn't realize that himself. Here are just a few of those "fans."

Is this where we point out Brown finished with eight receptions for 116 yards, including several key third down pickups?

To be fair, most fans were great, telling Brown to keep his chin up. But we see it as our civic duty to expose shitty fans and these are some of the worst.

fuck people like that. Its a damn football game. Sure it sucks and yeah it was a massive mistake that probably contributed to us giving away the lead but he didnt lose us the game. It was a combination of all kinds of things. If I had twitter Id attempt to remedy this but alas I do not. Philly gave us some awesome memories, people need to chill a bit.

I'm sure all those "fans" are perfect in all that they do.

Philly Brown made a mistake, as unfortunate as it was.

It doesn't negate a solid career, he was a good player/leader/teammate.

Head up, #10.....there's folks out here that appreciate all you've done.

elmird's picture

Philly doesn't deserve any of that. The team wins as a team and loses as a team. Yeah his mistake looms large with how the game ended up, but a great team would have picked him up and still won the game. I guess we're not a great team

These are not fans. They are idiots who need to get a freaking life (and who also obviously never played the game).

He made a huge mistake, so he should hear about it. 3 years returning kicks the wrong way, we should have known that he would cost this university a huge game. Shame on you Philly.


VestedInterest's picture

Have tried to give you the benefit of doubt bro but I think you might be an asshat. Dude had a solid game except for the muff.

Alpo's picture

I've tried to give him the benefit too, but seriously dude, STFU. Yeah Philly made a huge mistake, and we are all upset about it, but Philly alone did not cost us this game. He has made enormous contributions to this buckeye team over the years and I am proud he was on our side. As far as these idiots tweeting him this crap, you people are the lowest of the low, and just add a stain on all of us, the fanbase. You make us look like all those other lowlifes, like the Bama psychos  tweeting Cade foster with death threats after the loss to Auburn. absolutely pathetic.

One of the best wideout careers in school HISTORY, and you're gonna say that he deserves this over one muff. When the defense, as a whole, gave up 500+ yards.

I was f----d up last night and was in an extremely bad mood. This isn't in my nature to react this way after a loss. I apologize to the board and any potential recruit or player reading this thread. I dont know if I was being my sarcastic self when I made this post, but I certainly don't feel this way. Philly has been and still is one of my favorite Buckeroo's on the team.

Thanks for the apology; just remember this the next time we have a horrible loss (yes, it will happen).  If I knew I was going to react that way, I would stay off 11W for 24 hours.

I normally don't cuss on this site, but to all you tweeting that crap, FUCK YOU!!!!  Did he screw up, yea, but this is a young man who had a decent game, gave it his all for 4 years and is and always will be a Buckeye.  Just what the man needs right now from his own fanbase.  We're behind you Philly, we've all screwed up. 

buckeye20's picture

He made a mistake. If it wasn't for Philly, we aren't even in the game. He is a gamer and has alot of talent. People who are killing him on Twitter have no balls and would run like sissies in the opposite direction if Philly was in their face.  PUNKS. Philly didn't lose this game, the team wasn't good enough.

The fans who do that are horrible, but...
I have a friend in the know, and that friend texted me after the game, really upset, and said that Roby had been cleared to play and decided not to.

I'm with you.  Every time I get tempted to join it, I see crap like this.  This is why God doesn't let us read each others minds.  This is why your Mother told you to think before you speak.  Honestly, I would support legislation that would make that a crime.  If you said that to someone's face it would be a punishable threat.
They lost as a team.  Death threats for Brax who threw 2 interceptions?   Nope, and that would be ridiculous anyway.  Get over yourself.  Crap happens in games.
I thought overall Philly had a good game.
Onto 2014!

40 Degrees North's picture

You wouldn't need legislation. All you need is one County Prosecutor or District Attorney to file charges. In the end, it would probably be a minor misdemeanor, but the message will have been sent. Bring the TV cameras to the courthouse and let the Judge embarrass them even more. Message sent.
I do wonder if players, or celebrities in general, will shy away from this in the future because of crap like this. I know why the players are on there. Everyone in college is. Friends and sometimes family are. Most importantly, girls are. Yet, these no lifes and losers ruin it.

Idaho Helga's picture

Thanks, I didn't realize that.  Man, I wish it would get prosecuted in just the manner you described.  This has become way out of hand with people thinking they can just bully and threaten everyone in the worst language with all kinds of social media. 
We've all heard of some kids committing suicide over this irrational rhetoric.  Some wannabe-politician-prosecutor/law enforcement person could be a hero to true Buckeye Nation by going after a couple of these cowards.  If I were the judge, I'd put the coward and the player in a room by themselves and make the coward repeat what they tweeted. I'm sure that would turn out well for them.
Any takers?

I'm sorry but when Philly was the only receiver who got open and basically carried the passing attack, I'll let the muffed punt slide. I'm sorry you are getting all this crap Philly. There's always a couple bad apples in every bunch. 

Sgt. Elias's picture

If we had an tOSU defense we wouldn't be having this conversation.  Philly was the only consistent receiver all year. He made the passing game go, as you could see when he was out, it didn't go. This loss was a group effort as it was against Sparty. Deal with it Twitter cnts. I hate fake ass Buckeyes worse than arrogant Skunk-Bears. Shameful. 

"Okay -- I've got an El Camino full of rampage here." 

Poison nuts's picture

This loss was a group effort as it was against Sparty.

My thoughts exactly. Was the muffed punt a bad play? Yep. But this was a whole team loss with offense, defense, special teams (which was also good last night at times) & coaching all contributing to the loss.

Here's to hoping that all of them, specifically "Jay", get a cold hard lesson in real life sometime soon. I understand frustration and anger, but these are still kids who do what 95% cant do... play D1 football at a high level. If anything blame the coaching and play-calling, at least the coaches are paid six figures to win games.
I want anyone who played H.S. football to tell me that they made every play they were supposed to, that they made every block and every tackle presented to them, let alone every kick-off or punt-return available. It's football... NEVER does one play determine the outcome of an entire game of plays.

There's no doubt the muffed punt killed us. Does it suck? fuck yea. There is a difference in yelling at your TV and attacking a kid who made a mistake. He's been a solid player for us for 4 years and one play and people shit on the kid..... twitter is the most disgusting thing about social media. It encourages cowardness. Fucking sad really, says a lot about where we are today.
Like my old Gunney in the Corps used to say: "you can sleep with a hundred gorgeous women, but suck one cock and you're a cocksucker for life".

I loathe people who "love em when we win and hate them when we lose!"  Winning and losing are collective efforts and a mistake by a young man who has played his ass off for tOSU is no reason to attack him.  
I do hope that Philly and Roby understand that nearly all true Buckeye fans have their backs.    Go Bucks!

Had a healthy QB waiting in the wings. I don't blame it on Philly or Brax. Brax was hurt late in first half and continued to diteriate with hits. Our ability to stretch the D with deep balls was done and clemson knew it. De deflected short passes and limited passes were the only thing we had to compliment a stacked line for Carlos. Kenny is not as bad an option as we were made to believe, tonight. The coaches chose to die with Brax

Go Bucks and michigan STILL SUCKS!

I have to confess to being a little bit (a *little* bit) of a dick tonight. I tweeted this after the touchdown following the muff:
I was frustrated and thought he should have known better; it's a bowl game, after all. But I forgave him, forgot about it and moved on. It's over, it's done with, here's our situation, and let's git 'er done. 
To Philly, I apologize: I shouldn't have told you "not cool..." That was out of line.

You "forgave him"?   Ugh.  Please do not tweet that to him.   'Should have sent "not cool"? ' That's just about as stupid.  Why would you tweet anything like that to a player?  I hope you aren't just venting your mistake here, go tell him on twitter what an asshat you were.
If you tweet to the world your girlfriend/wife is fat, you can try to take that back all you want with apologies but... not really.  Damage was done.

Very, very sad.  
Philly Brown played one of his best games of the season or any season tonight, apart from that one play.   On a night when Devin Smith seemed to disappear, Brown made catch after catch.   Their are at least a half-dozen plays that a person could point to and say that if this, that, or the other doesn't happen, maybe we win.  
THe stupidest thing about it was that after the score that followed the muffed punt, we still had the fricking lead.   It didn't even cost us the lead at that time, much less costing us the game.

razrback16's picture

As angry as I am at Philly for that muffed punt, you don't lose a game on one play. The defense played mostly terrible as usual (576 total yards given up, also the most to any individual receiver in the history of the Orange Bowl). Offense played awful at the end with some bad play-calling. It was a 3-phase loss unfortunately. I hate to see awful fans tweeting nasty shit to players, our team or otherwise. They should have their social media privileges revoked.

Also, do not hide behind alcohol supposed "fans".  It doesn't give you a right to be an asshole.

Some folks need to learn that it's only a game and it's a team game at that.   Tweeting hate to a college kid over a game well that's despicable behavior by over the top bullies.   
It seems to be all over as well not just football, but whatever sport or nation.  Fans seem to think they have a right to trash talk and twitter has given them the means to bash these players while remaining safely on the other side of the computer.  
So as bullies and cowards tweet their rage, hopefully Philly, Roby and the rest of the Buckeyes can unfriend the trash or whatever you do on twitter.  In instances like this, ignorance is bliss.  Let the rabid fanatics rant to each other.  

First ever undisputed National Champions! OH!

I'm upset too that he fumbled that punt.  I know he is as well.  However, sending him tweets like that is not the right thing to do.  The guy made a mistake in a game.  He also made many strong plays.  I do think that it was a key part in allowing Clemson to win the game.  However, sending messages like this to a player is not the way to go.

Armybuck925's picture

Did Philly's muff swing the momentum of the game..YES. Games change momentum multiple times throughout the four quarters. The people that hate on Philly need to acknowledge that they do not grasp the concept of Twitter. Philly has shown over the last 2 years of working with UFM what incredible pride and work ethic that he has. To take the challenge from Meyer after he had first worked with these receivers and develop into a dynamic receiver and become the epitome of what it means to be a possession receiver. During the Orange Bowl, Philly made a number of plays to keep drives going. Leave the man alone and appreciate all that he has given to this football program.

DiasporaBuck's picture

Agreed.  Without key plays that Philly Brown made, our score would have been lower in the first place.  It's unfortunate that some folks might not remember that part before they go twatting.
We're pretty damn lucky to be Buckeye fans, to feel any disappointment about an 11-2 season with the program still on the upswing.  (For the life of me, I canNOT get the theme song from the Facts of Life out of my head.)  Let's keep in mind that we're not entitled to perfect seasons every year (because we're not Alabama) and appreciate the enormity of what these kids and staff put into something that we watch from the comfort of our own asses.  I'm going to miss the seniors, and looking forward to seeing the development of the young guys - who look like they could have the makings of the next great Buckeye defense.
Thanks for a fun season.  Let's do another one (it starts today)

I was upset when he missed that punt. In the heat of the moment, I blamed it on Philly. Of course, who wouldn't. But look, the defense as a whole gave up 40 points, we had penalties out the ass, clemson was stuffing the run, and we did not play an all around great game. I made one comment on here about Philly's mishap turning the game, and that is where momentum shifted, but I would never tweet a young man and tell him to die. That is why I use the 11w live blogs. Anyone who tweets philly this stuff is immature and extremely disrespectful.
Was it a huge play? Yes. Was it a turning point in the game? Sure seems like it. Do we win if he catched is? You can make a strong argument for yes. The fact of the matter is: He is a Buckeye and had a great career. In the heat of the moment, I blamed Philly, and that was on the 11W live blog, by saying it turned the game. There is more to it than Philly's mistake. If someone does not see that, then they are an idiot. And for someone to tweet a young man in the heat of a moment is disrespectful beyond belief because you know many of them are terrible tweets.
Philly, it was a huge mistake, but that mistake does not define you as the player you have been over the past five years. Thank you for giving your all to Buckeye Nation. Good luck in the future and keep your head held high. 

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

I don't know why these tweets are constantly highlighted on this site, or anywhere else. A few low-life morons on Twitter do not comprise the majority of the Ohio State fanbase. Amplifying the voices of these lunatics only paints an inaccurate depiction of what our fanbase is actually like. This constant "LOOK AT THESE DUMB PEOPLE LET'S GO TAKE THE FIGHT TO THEM SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!" tactic serves nobody. Leave these people to their complete and utterly miserable existence. Twitter already gives them a voice that they in no way deserve. Don't make it any louder. No one gives a crap what they have to say.

I am upset we lost.  I was mad at C Brown for dropping that ball.  But I also know it sure is a lot harder to perform when the pressure is HUGE, and the pressure at that moment was.  He messed up, blame to go around, we still had a great shot to win the game.  They are the best players available with eligibility, and we should love them.  The only great plays those haters will ever make is on x-box.  I hope the players realize that almost all of us truly support them and love them, and they will always be a real part of Buckeye Nation.  I'm hoping most of the bastards that tweeted those things are either covert Michigan fans or ex Buckeye fans.  We sure don't need em.

I think Miller's gone, theres no way he stays in the game, couldn't throw and that is what cost us in the end. He threw so low all night Clemson either batted it, we missed or it was picked off. We had 1:30 left were across the 50 with 2 TOs and miller throws a low pass to a wide open Philly brown to be picked off again. The coaches, defense, offense and special teams are all to blame, there were mistakes everywhere and we still could've won, and that makes its tough just like MSU. Go bucks! Keep working hard on to next year and getting better.

BrewstersMillions's picture

As crappy as everyone in Buckeye nation-coaches, players, and fans-all felt last night, I'd venture a guess that there was not a person in the world that felt worst than Corey Brown. This is where I find myself ashamed to be apart of such a proud football tradition. Every fan base has their loons but OURS were on display last night. This is probably the most extreme example of it.
I have to ask-Does Matt Finkes still read or contribute to this site? I ask because the end of his playing days at OSU basically began my life as an OSU fan-not saying his departure had anything to do with it, but I really became a stringent OSU fan right around the time his OSU team's were winding down their careers. I bring him up because I wonder if he ever played with that Rob Bellomy character. I don't ever recall seeing his name on any OSU roster while I was a fan, maybe Mr. Finkes can shed some light on whether or not he played with that person while he was at OSU. That would give me about 20 years of OSU history between the start of his career and the addition of my time as a fan so maybe we can crack this code.
I ask because saying "We would have won" implies that you had something to do with the game, ThynameisRob. You don't. Didn't. Never have. Never will. This is where putting yourself into something too much comes back to bite you. Ohio State Football means so much to you that you would attack a person you probably  have never met and almost certainly do not know. This is a child's game that we love to watch. These guys owe you nothing. Bringing them down-when they no doubt feel worse than you because they are a part of the team-shows how flawed and terrible you are as a person.
Shame on anyone who took to Twitter to assault players last night.

It was a great run, Bucks, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Best of luck to those of you who are moving on, and I look forward to watching the rest of you again next season.
Win with class, lose with class. Go Bucks! You have my respect and admiration.

I love these kids and this school and this team so much it hurts to read and hear all of this.  They deserve so much more.  I live and die with these guys and to yet to say anything to hurt them is unthinkable.
