Roddy White pay Twitter bet?
Perhaps it was in jest, perhaps it wasn't, but Roddy White's Twitter bet shows that the NFL makes headlines no matter the type of story. White, an ever-confident Duke fan, responded to one of his followers saying he would give the fan season tickets to the Falcons if Mercer, a 14 seed, beat Duke, a 3 seed, in the first round of the NCAA tournament. As we now know, the Bears upset the Blue Devils and the Twitter-verse demanded White pay up, and his response was to give up tickets to this year's Chicago-Atlanta game. Did White make good on his bet? Was this even a real bet?

Should the Falcons backtrack on their Tony Gonzalez stance and pack it in for the year?
