Bills' rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins needs a little help. The injured split end has drawn harsh criticism following a pointed rant on Instagram where he reminded Buffalo fans that they "forever will be losers" and urges them to "continue working y'all little jobs for the rest of y'all lives."
But maybe this post was lost in translation. The first round draft pick, who has a career 11 total receptions for 147 total yards, couldn't possibly be trying to alienate his fan base, could he?
We didn't think so! So, we've done you the favor of translating his punctuationally challenged post into proper English. Enjoy!
Original Instagram Post:
To My Adoring Fans in Buffalo:
It has come to my attention that many of you have become upset following the news of an injury that may cause me to miss multiple professional football games for the Buffalo Bills. To those critics, I invite you to come to Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, on Sunday to play in my stead. Please be forewarned, that the rate of injury in this sport is substantial -- many great men have fallen injured in the past, and I presume that many more will in the future.
You may be disappointed, but I am optimistic.
I suggest that you find more productive uses for your time than to be concerned with my well-being, though I do appreciate your alarm.
So, while you might believe that - were you in my shoes - you would make every effort to get out there and compete every Sunday, I implore you to remain present at your current occupation.
I understand that this statement may offend you, but it became evident that the loyal fans who support me deserve a response.
Sammy Watkins, WR #14
