NFL Lockout: Vonnie Holliday tweets against owners

The NFL lockout may or may not be over, it's hard to tell. If you listen to the owners — or perhaps a certain media outlet desperate to devote 24 hours a week to football again — a deal to end the owner-imposed lockout is close. Then again, if you listen to the players, you might want to wait before buying those party deck tickets.
Now that the owners have emerged from their cigar-and-brandy-filled backrooms and submitted a proposal to end the lockout, the players' union is working on a response. According to some statements on Twitter, two things are certain: Players are not pleased with the owners' proposal, and the Redskins' Vonnie Holiday is becoming a Twitter superstar.
Shortly after the "deal" was announced by ESPN (who aired a three-hour special on prime time to talk about the proposal), the defensive end and player representative — whose Twitter handle is @therealholliday, as if he's famous enough to have imposters — started an epic stream of tweets.
Look guys I have no reason to lie! The truth of the matter is we got tricked, duped, led astray, hoodwinked, bamboozled!
& I'm sorry you did too!
@goallinestand24 Deserve?!?! Really? Perhaps you should go watch the owners drink wine & eat ribeye on Sunday's!
This happened not a few times. For instance:
@nsilvano21 Perhaps you should change professions or become a better employee!
@in4td Not all NFL players do! Check your facts.

@AnthonySanchez_ Didn't know that you was playing... If you were then you would see things differently!
@therealholliday teach @ 30k a year or get paid & set for life on 10 years of work? Hmmm...I'd play and be grateful I play a game for work.
@RetteCody5 You should submit ur resume & tryout!
And yes, he even got a swipe in at the news media:
It is truly amazing how bad the reporting is on the issues surrounding the NFL Lockout!!! What happened to credible reporting?
