    Ahh Santonio..the horse has bolted..

    Somehow, Chadman thinks this defense comes a little late..

    Holmes claims his Twitter account was hacked
    Posted by Mike Florio on April 12, 2010 10:05 PM ET
    We reconfigured various Monday afternoon radio spots in the hopes of being able to participate in the conference call conducted on Monday regarding the Jets' trade for receiver Santonio Holmes.

    The call was supposed to start at 4:00 p.m. It didn't. When 4:20 p.m. ET rolled around, I needed to wake and bake. (I hope I'm finally using that term correctly.)

    Eventually, the call occurred. During the discussion, Holmes was asked about a Twitter exchange from the day after news broke of a lawsuit filed against Holmes based on allegations that he threw a drink in a woman's face.

    Holmes told a Twitter user that he "shud try finding the worst thing that you could drink n kill urself.

    "It wasn't me," Holmes said, per Manish Mehta of the Newark Star-Ledger. "I never tried to defend myself on that topic among anyone on Twitter or among anyone that tried to ask me for interviews. . . . I would definitely be accountable for my actions if I did say it."

    So why wouldn't he have defended himself? All he'd need to do is delete the tweet and post a new one explaining that his account had been accessed by something not authorized to use it.

    Besides, Holmes has a "Verified Account." In other words, the stuff he says on it are regarded as his words. If he failed to secure his user name or password and someone else made that statement, Holmes is still responsible. At a minimum, he needs to offer an explanation more detailed than "it wasn't me."

    At some point, Holmes has deleted the tweet. However, he has yet to remove the one in which he declares an intention to "wake n bake," or where he reminds the fans that "u don't cut my check."

    But at least this story has a somewhat happy ending. On March 30, he pointed out that he loves the Jets.

    Then again, maybe it wasn't him.

    So, now, can the Steelers claim their signature was forged on the trade agreement, get Holmes back, all is forgiven, and all feathers unruffled? :P

    Ex-Steeler Holmes. Don't care about him or what he says. Bye!!!!
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    False. As a college kid I deleted my facebook account a couple times.


    There were always two weeks that brought me back to it. The week after halloween and the week after spring break.

    It's hard to defend the pictures put up during those weeks as not being an advantage.
