The Honey Badger Delusionally Invites You to What Could Be a Very Sad Draft Day Party

Photos, Twitter

Tyrann Mathieu has posted a flyer on Instagram for an NFL Draft after-party tomorrow night at SL, a nightclub in New York.

Unless the graphic designer has reliable NFL front office contacts, this could be a pretty solemn affair: the poster refers to Mathieu as a “1st Round Draft Pick”, which is … generous. Most draft analysts project him to be taken in the second or third round; in a recent mock draft, Mel Kiper Jr. had him going 59th overall to New England. So sure, if “1st Round” refers to the first round of the second day of the draft, Mathieu might be a first round pick. But not even that is certain.

Then there’s the matter of the high ranking of “hosting a party at a club in New York” on the big board of “bad ideas for Tyrann Mathieu”. This is a guy who estimated that he failed over 10 drug tests at LSU and ended up being dismissed from his team. In the immortal words of Instagram user @junnyb_johnson, who commented on Mathieu’s post:

“Yo ima fan dog, and I dont know you. But what impression you think your making on Teams that are scared of you sighting lack of maturity, throwing an afterparty in NY like nothing possibly could happen. You gotta use better logic bro, no hate.”

He’s not mad at you, Mathieu. He’s just disappointed.

Update: Mathieu tweets that he did not approve the “1st round” part of the flyer that was posted on his own Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Update II: There will be no party.

So try to convince NFL execs that you are calming down and staying away from substance abuse by throwing a party very likely to have a ton of drunk people?  How completely stupid can you get....

Someone will take a shot on this loser but nothing will be guaranteed.  Expect plenty of smoke today gone tomorrow clauses in your contract Honey Badger.  You could have been so much more.  Potential wasted on synthetic crap.

First round party?  What is he celebrating?  The first round selection of former teammate Barkevious (sp?) Mingo?  Does anyone, anyone AT ALL think Tyrann will be drafted in the first round?  No, nobody does.

On a football note, figure Tyrann gets drafted in the 4th round.  Note that he's approximately 5 foot 8 and will not be able to cover tall WRs in the NFL.  Tyrann has a short career filled with special teams play ahead of him.  (Much lik junnyb johnson, no hate, just telling it like it is).  If anyone thinks that the vertically challenged (short) Tyrann can cover 6 foot plus NFL WRs, kindly state why.

That instagram message was exactly correct, except please use YOU'RE.

He should be throwing a Day 3 party . . . .

Hope he has his "I dun been suspended for substance abuse" party planned already. Lindsay Lohan featured guest.

Well, this druggie will have plenty of time to get high on Thursday Night AND Friday Night.  

The only ringing, Tyrann, is in your head...the phone will be silent.  

No one is taking you until the 4th Round.

He'll be the first pick overall...on Saturday. If he's lucky. 

He has a better chance to be Paul Salata's announcement as Mr. Irrelevant.

@John4 Also, its "citing", not "sighting."  Whatever happened to literacy in this country?

@Spurticus Spurticus - yes, good catch.  Literacy in this country is in trouble.  I recommend you watch the movie "Idiocracy" and gauge for yourself.
