“Reporters who are snarky on Twitter athletes and coaches drive me crazy. Don’t tweet something which you cannot say to somebody’s face. We follow you (reporters) because you are a professional, and your tweets should be about the report of the game you are at rather than your sense of humor.” – Kara Henderson.
