Remember when you were playing touch football in the street when you were younger and there was always that kid who would stamp his feet and go home if you wouldn’t let him touch the ball enough? Titus Young is that kid. No, seriously. On Tuesday afternoon, Young took to his Twitter account to vent about some of his frustrations after an incredibly turbulent season with the Detroit Lions. Simply put, the wide receiver said he isn’t going to play anymore if he doesn’t start seeing more balls. Like I said I never been selfish but if I’m not going to get the football i don’t want to play anymore — Titus D Young Sr (@TitusDYoungSr) January 22, 2013 Remember, the Young who is claiming to never have been selfish is the same guy who was sent home and benched for the Thanksgiving day game for, well, being selfish. He wasn’t done there. Never have I ran the wrong route, just put my self where the ball was going — Titus D Young Sr (@TitusDYoungSr) January 22, 2013 Apparently the stories about Young intentionally running the wrong route to sabotage the Lions’ offense are untrue. Despite the fact that the Lions have had to discipline him for head-butting an opponent and punching his own teammate, Jim Schwartz recently said there is still a possibility he could return to the team next season. If Young does come back, Detroit better find a way to get him the ball. Otherwise, he’s getting on his scooter and going home.
