Falcons’ Roddy White pays up Twitter bet in a BIG way
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White came under fire last week after he made a bet with a Twitter follower over an NCAA tournament second round game. The game was between No. 3 Duke and No. 14 Mercer, in which the follower tweeted White that Mercer would win.

Then, some back and forth took place where White said that since Dylan (Twitter follower) was a Chicago Bears fan, he’d give him tickets to that game. But then came a change of heart, and Roddy explained why he wasn’t going to pay up on the bet.
Y’all people are crazy on twitter you want me to man up and pay a bet to a person that had nothing to lose in the bet #soundsridicules

This of course would lead to some backlash for White. However, Roddy would again change his mind and decide to follow through with his end of the deal.
@DHoyt77 2 season tickets, 2 SB tix, pregame sideline passes to game and a day at camp as my guest. How does that sound
