10. Matt Hasselbeck vs. Antonio Cromartie
This little spat on Twitter took place in 2011, when the NFL and NFLPA were in a labor dispute. This argument began when Cromartie made some comments that criticized both players and owners about the dispute. Next, Hasselbeck took to Twitter to question Cromartie’s intelligence when he asked if he even knew what CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) stood for. Cromartie didn’t take too kindly to these remarks and responded with “Hey Matt if u have something to say then say it be a man about it. Don’t erase it. I will smash ur face in.” That is likely not the response Hasselbeck expected or wanted back from this little exchange.http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/jets-cornerback-antonio-cromartie-fires-back-matt-hasselbeck-criticism-smash-ur-face-article-1.151948 Source: Nydailynews.com
