Go to his website and check out the time on his phone...he will never learn...

As one chapter of my life comes to a close, another chapter is just beginning. I would like to sincerely thank all of my fans for making my four years as a Steeler a memorable one. This is the team where I won my first Super Bowl ring, received the Super Bowl XLIII MVP and also won my first ESPY award. How can I move forward and not take those feelings and experiences with me. Those are the ones that left such a great taste in my mouth and wanting to strive for more. The support and encouragement you have given me from day one has been such an inspiration that I will continue to carry with me.

I have made some mistakes in my past that I am not proud of, but the most important thing is that I have learned from them. God has given me the opportunity to make a clean start and I am really excited about moving forward in a positive direction.

To all of my New York Jets fans, thank you for welcoming me with open arms. The 2010 season is going to be a great one. I know the reason Mike Tannenbaum, Coach Ryan and Mr. Johnson brought me to this team is to help win a Super Bowl and I plan on helping them accomplish that goal.

Thank you again for all your support and encouragement.

God Bless,

Santonio Holmes – New York Jets Wide Receiver

Is he stupid enough to think nobody else knows the slang or is he rubbing it in Goodell's face?

He apparently didn't think anyone from the team's front office or the league offices would know what "wake-and-bake" meant (or else he was too stupid to realize that anyone with a Twitter account to access what he posted on there).

I'm not usually a grammar police officer but this made me cringe....

I think he can thank us much more effectively by playing poorly against us in the regular season and then following up in the playoffs (if applicable).

Should have kept it short and sweet:

"Thank you fans of Pittsburgh. I love you guys, but I love weed more"

He should do a take-off on the T.O. "I love me some me!" bit, changing it to "I love me some weed!"

No, the one person called him an idiot for posting 4:20...which I do agree with :lol:

Another comment:

Good riddance. The Steelers showed faith in you by making you a first round pick, and you repaid that with asinine antics over the years. Bragging about “waking and baking” and telling fans to go kill themselves tells us all we need to know about you. I’m glad I’ll never have to root for you again.

the Steelers gave Sanstonio away for a 5th rounder because they truly understood that he just doesn't get it and probably never will.

I have to admit it - I liked him. Kind of kooky and certainly not getting the drug testing thing but I bet he'd be cool to grab a beer with and chat. I'm not sorry the Steelers drew the line, but i am sorry it came to that.

I do not support the legalization of drugs nor have I ever experimented with them, not even once. But as an individual in the legal system of the country, ALCOHOL causes more death destruction and mayhem than weed, crack, and meth combined. And gentlemen this is not hyperbole. So all of this moaning about Tone makes me laugh. I think weed is stupid and destructive but Ive never had a sip of alcohol either. So for a thinking man (well at least some of the time) this whining is just more hypocritical grandstanding in a probable effort to mask self perceived inadequacies. This trend is becoming all too popular.

Tone, the weed is/was stupid and its harming you in the long run. BUT IM NO BETTER THAN YOU OR ANYONE ELSE NOR AM I ON A QUEST TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF BY PUTTING YOU DOWN. My family adores me, my coworkers respect and admire me, and chicks dig me ha ha (bonus).

So thanks Tone, that was a hell of a playoff run where you practically took it upon yourself to win every game, culminating with the greatest catch in NFL history ( only because you had on a Steelers uniform). Yeah you made a terrible decision ( not a mistake because you did it a million times) to keep smoking that junk. But I wish you well.

And oh yeah you don't have the QB to beat us so don't even think about it. Take care Bro.
