I hate twitter and obviously Altidore shouldn’t have been late, but it’s hilarious how Brown rips him for not keeping things in house, and then talks about the whole situation to the media. Egotistical hypocrite
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Jozy’s Twittering habits. People reflexively jump on anything related to Twitter these days – I don’t personally like it myself – but all Jozy does on Twitter is talk about video games and ask/thank people for their support (and talk about soccer in general). He is most definitely not “living his life on Twitter”. He does not post updates on what he’s doing every hour.
I still don’t understand what he did that was so bad in this case. “Dirty laundry”? It’s not like he’s revealing any scandalous secrets. He apologized for being late. The only reason the Twittering is a problem is because Phil Brown is making it one. Jozy didn’t do anything that I can objectively call “wrong” aside from being late, which is the real issue. I think Phil Brown is just looking for another reason to get on him – which is the other real issue. Phil Brown has to go, for the good of Hull and for the good of US Soccer.
And FWIW, this is a lesson I learned the hard way. I had a minor job-related issue that was not my fault, but I posted about it on facebook and got a stern talking-to. Fortunately, there were no repercussions beyond that, but employers in sports and elsewhere are pretty adamant that you don’t air dirty laundry.
