Never has so much been on the line for the New Orleans Saints and their fans on draft day.
No, I'm not talking about the team's abundance of picks and the importance of this year's draft as the team fills in some major holes. I'm talking about saving a fan from getting punched in the dick.
Earlier today on Twitter one dedicated Saints fan made a bold proclamation to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who is reporting that the Saints plan to select a quarterback high in the 2015 draft this weekend. If Rapoport's report is true and the Saints decide to take quarterback Bryce Petty, the owner of DatMan T-Shirts is going to pay Ian Rapoport to fly down to New Orleans and punch him square in the dick. Can't make this stuff up, folks.
The #Saints looking to take a QB of the future has been a topic for months (http://t.co/40hcivK4xG). Could sit Petty for 2 years if they do— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 30, 2015
@WhoDat save this tweet.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 30, 2015
Challenge accepted! I like an NFL Insider who's willing to put his fist where his mouth is...errr...wait...that didn't come out right. You know what I mean.
So if you're hoping the Saints don't waste a pick on a Drew Brees successor this year, this little wager just might change your mind. At the very least, it certainly adds yet another level of fun to all of tonight's exciting draft action.
BTW, this guy must have been the first Saints fan ever on Twitter to be able to get the name @WhoDat. That's pretty impressive.
