      Timing is everything Walt. Maybe should've waited until later tonight to discuss fantasy implications.

        What if someone picks up Gerhart later?

          I don't know. People get sensitive with violence involving children. You gotta play it carefully. They're in an emotionally charged state, and to distract from where their energy is focused in a state like that can really be offensive. To them, it is like you're shoving the tragedy out of the way to get things back to business. That's not what you're doing, but that's their perception. Timing is everything.

            Agreed. But this is a site that offers fantasy advice. It's my job to do that

              I don't really see anything wrong with it, you're doing your job, timing may have been a bit off but it wasn't like you were saying: SIT PETERSON NOWWWWW HE'S BEING DRAGGED DOWN BY HIS KID!!! BENCH BENCH BENCH!!!

              Twitter is essentially made for knee jerk reactions and such, don't feel too bad.

Many quarterbacks and coaches have come and gone, but none have been able to fight off this condition. There are some players with star talent on the roster, but the since there isn't enough hive immunity from sucking, the Browns continue to falter and can't seem to produce wins. I'll defer here to Johnnyallstar as he might have some information on the Browns' timeline of recovery and chances of reinjury.

                You're thinking rationally. They're not. Simple as that. It's okay Walt, they'll get over it.

                  Even just in a separate tweet immediately after seems more appropriate.

                  This has an "anyways..." feel to it.

                    Nothing wrong with doing your job, some people are sensitive though. I understand people being pissed, just ignore them. Telling them they have sandy vages probably isn't the best way to ingratiate yourself.

                        Walt, part of your job is taking the backlash of the real life/fantasy football/sports betting divide. Seems like this is just another one of those things.

                        Tragic real life situations have fantasy implications. If LeSean McCoy got hit by a bus tomorrow and went comatose, it would be Walt's responsibility to say as quickly as possible that everyone should pick up Bryce Brown, and he would get ridiculous backlash for it. He still has to say it, though. It's his job.

                          Agreed, but I wasn't really thinking about it at the time

                            Thanks, Cory. You're right. It'd sound callous on my part, but that's exactly what I'd do

                              Just think about it a bit more next time. It's really not a big issue. People are going to focus more on the story as it develops, and your somewhat poorly timed tweet will be forgotten. It'll be back to business as usual.
