Sounds like the beginning of the end for this guy. Does he have nothing left to do but stir up s***?

That's as idiotic as saying football is as tough as rugby. (I don't mean the American sport)

Dude made 18 million last year alone playing games. He could probably poop in public and never have to worry about his reputation again.

That's not what he said. He said he does not understand how there aren't players in the NFL who are good enough to never miss "simple kicks and snaps".

I do think he is underestimating the difficulty of being a kicker, but I somewhat see what he was saying. Compared to the rest of football, kicking is a situation in which many of the variables are already controlled. You know what to expect for the most part and it's a matter of practicing a routine motion to hit a stationary goal.

There are still variables like wind speed/direction and where the snap is placed, but it does have a lot less nuance than the things people were comparing his tweet to.

No it’s not lol. NFL you need to be skilled and genetically elite. E sports you can be skinny, short, weak but as long as you have some coordination , reflexes and strategy you can do ok. There’s a reason they pay millions to each nfl player while most pro gamers are broke.

I'd also like to point out that it's very likely that most of the people having meltdowns over his tweet are massive hypocrites.

I don't think I've ever been to a football game where I didn't hear people around me say multiple times "come on, how could you f*** that catch/throw up?!" "how could you not tackle that guy?!" "Where is the blocking? You have one job!!!"

Which is exactly the same line of reasoning as Ninja's. The only difference here is people who were already jealous of these streamers making millions of dollars playing video games are ready to pounce on anything they say.

Yes, the beginning of the end. Not knocking the guy, all good things must come to an end at some point.
