Washington Redskins wide receiver Jabar Gaffney took to Twitter after a tough loss to the Dallas Cowboys and told a Dallas fan to “go kill himself,” The Washington Post reports.
The Twitter tirade began after a Cowboys fan tweeted Gaffney “lmao 3-9.” The Redskins, however, are 3-7 and Gaffney responded rather angrily in a string of three tweets to the Cowboys fan.
“3-7 ain’t a record to be proud of I’m just proud I ain’t you get a life or kill urself,” the deleted tweet read.
Gaffney ended up deleting most of the profanity laced tweets. To see photos of the deleted stream, click here.
In Sunday’s overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Gaffney caught seven passes for 115 yards and a touchdown.

The Redskins should probably go ahead and agree not to check Twitter on Sundays after losses.
First Fred Davis wrote that anyone who thinks he fumbled in the first quarter is an idiot.
This started when a Cowboys fan who lives in Virginia sent Gaffney a tweet reading “lmao 3-9.” The Redskins, of course, are not 3-9. Things devolved quickly from there.

The Eagles fans I’ve met personally don’t so much hate the Cowboys as it’s more of strong dislike or distaste, often simply out of peer influence. Now I’ve never been to Philly, only known out-of-state Eagles fans in New York and Virginia, so maybe I’m out of touch on this. But it’s just my experience.
The Giants are even more distant, and many seem to hate the Eagles more, especially after a 6-game losing streak to them. New York fans, in my experience, tend to be more about priding themselves about how the Cowboys supposedly “suck” than about real hatred, especially since their 2007 Super Bowl run.
Redskins fans, however, have a genuine, real hatred of the Cowboys that’s longstanding. This is helped by the fact that Washington has been 7-20 against Dallas since 1998.
Packers and Steelers fans obviously have more pressing rival teams on their minds, such as the Bears and Ravens, than the Cowboys. I threw that in there just for the sake of it.
