Odell Beckham has been making a real ass of himself this season. There’s just no two ways about it. He’s legitimately lucky the Baltimore Ravens don’t know how to tackle, because had he not had a monster game this weekend, New York City was about ready to be done with the guy. We can take losing. We can take passion. We can even take unnecessary displays of emotion. But what we cannot take is bullshit. New Yorkers have a minuscule margin for bullshit. And Beckham’s whole shtick with the ‘not having fun’ anymore, the Joker gloves, the goddamn kicking net — it’s all bullshit, and it’s wearing thin. Which is why it PAINS me to say that I agree with Mike Francesa’s evisceration of OBJ.
I agree with Mikey F: I absolutely cannot stand watching Beckham’s kicking net antics. It was never funny and the longer he goes on doing it, the more cringe-worthy it becomes. The fact that OBJ still genuinely believes that anyone still wants to see his weekly kicking net antics attest to how disconnected and out of touch he really is. Odell, your teammates, coaches, and fans want to see you play well, score some touchdowns, shake Eli’s hand as a touchdown celebration, rinse, and repeat. No one shows up to Giants games to watch you do your best Carrot Top routine with the motherf*cking kickers net.
“He’s a football player, he’s not doing two shows a night in Vegas.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
