Maybe all those trips on and off the Patriots’ roster are finally getting to Donte Stallworth. For the record, Stallworth attended a fine university — the University of Tennessee — and majored in psychology. Unlike many of his NFL peers, Stallworth even graduated. However, a degree in psychology doesn’t necessarily make one an expert on the medicine of vaccines. Nonetheless, Stallworth took to Twitter on Friday and, in a 17-tweet exposition, let the world know what are probably some controversial opinions about the swine flu vaccine. Let’s just say that while Stallworth languishes on injured reserve, he clearly has some extra time on his hands. According to Stallworth’s “research” (he doesn’t cite his sources like a good academic), the wide receiver finds it suspicious that swine flu comes from Mexico rather than Asia. Stallworth claims that the 1976 “outbreak” prompted about a quarter of the U.S. population to be vaccinated, but that it actually ended up harming far more people than it helped — again, Stallworth’s light on the specifics. We’ll let you read the rest of Stallworth’s argument on Twitter if you like, but suffice it to say that he’s skeptical of the swine flu vaccine. Not that he’s telling you what to do. Or implying that the government has any nefarious intentions. Check out a few choice tweets below and decide if Stallworth has been watching a little too much of The X-Files. When I first heard H1N1 came from Mexico, I started to do my own research because the influenza virus almost always comes from Asia…. — Donte’ Stallworth (@DonteStallworth) January 4, 2013 Before 43 left office there was a program in place to develop vaccines because tens of billions were wasted on vaccine underuse. Hello, H1N1 — Donte’ Stallworth (@DonteStallworth) January 4, 2013 Don’t be afraid to question authority for truth…be afraid of those who take authority as truth. — Donte’ Stallworth (@DonteStallworth) January 4, 2013 Photo of the Night Yes, that is Billy Dee Williams flanked by storm troopers and R2-D2.
