Alex Singleton’s (family member?) keeps DMing TLL because he sucks at football
So this is pretty weird. A girl by the name of Melissa Singleton keeps DMing people at The Liberty Line complaining about how we are too hard on Alex Singleton. Specifically, targeting Jack Connell on Twitter. Now look, I have no idea who this girl is. It could be his sister, wife, cousin, second cousin, whatever but regardless, its pretty ridiculous. Full disclosure, it could also be a troll. Melissa Singleton has 22 followers and doesn’t even tweet much to begin with. Either way, definitely bizarre.
Yes, young Jack is pretty hard on Singleton, but it doesn’t come without reason. No matter who is screwing up on the Eagles or really, any Philly sports team, Jack tweets about it, along with a million other tweets about positive things and good stats when players perform well.
It’s not his fault that Alex Singleton is playing bad. He makes it very clear that it’s simply football related too, but that’s clearly not good enough for Melissa Singleton. For context, here’s some quick stats on Singleton.
Alex Singleton in coverage before today (Started 9/12 games)
|Alex Singleton||429 (6th most of all LBs)||45 (9th most of all LBs)||5 (most of all LBs)|
|Nate Gerry (2020)||299||28||4|
Singleton also has 10 missed tackles on the season, which is tied for 4th most amongst all linebackers in the NFL. The conversation started after Jack tweeted about a “dirty play from Alex Singleton. Melissa didn’t take too kindly to Jack’s tweet.
Is it the worst play in the world? Not really. Was Jack probably just getting on Singleton’s shit a little bit for shoving the dude in the back? Definitely. Regardless, Melissa was NOT a fan Jack’s tweet.
I probably would have ignored her from that point, but Jack being a nice kid that he is, replied and basically told her that he’s critical of a lot of things that happen on the football field and there’s no personal vendetta against Alex Singleton.
Apparently Melissa has been checking Jack’s tweets and found even more tweets about Singleton that she wasn’t happy about. From there she just started hammering Jack with DMs and is currently still sending them like a complete psychopath.
Not a great look. Again, I have no idea who this girl is and if she is actually related to Alex Singleton. In the end, it’s still bizarre behavior, even more so when Jack is 100% right and Alex Singleton has been a major disappointment this year. Of course it’s not personal, it’s just a fact and the numbers prove it.
Typically I’m not one to share screenshots of the DMs but when they are still pouring in from some small Twitter account sticking up for Alex Singleton, there was no way I was passing this up. It’s weird and maybe someone else can connect the dots to find out who this girl is and if she’s just a big Alex Singleton fan or actually related to him.
Regardless, huge birds win and we’re now currently in a Wild Card spot. Enjoy the BYE week and Minshew Mania. Fly Eagles Fly.
