fan, wearing Roddy jersey at sAints camp, threatened by players
- Updated: August 8, 2014
Justin Daniel is a die-hard Atlanta Falcons fan from Covington, Georgia who now lives in West Virginia. The New Orleans sAints are having their Training Camp in West Virginia this year, so once Justin found this out he made plans to attend camp.
“AINTS came to my state to hold their training camp which really I can’t believe even though I hate this team with passion it’s still pro football”, says Justin Daniel “I wanted to see it but I told my friends I’m wearing my damn falcon jersey to rep my team to the fullest.
Daniel also told us he took the bus to their camp facilities and the bus driver warned him that by wearing an Atlanta Falcons jersey there could be some trouble waiting for him at camp once he arrives there.
Nonetheless Justin Daniel took his seat on the bus, he made sure his phone was charged and prepared himself for the 20 minute bus trip to their camp. Justin was accompanied by 2 of his friends. They arrived at camp late, but they were all still pretty pumped to be there especially being this was in West Virginia and the ultimate goal was his friends wanted to get a Champ Bailey autograph. Champ Bailey played his college football at The University of Georgia where he remains a legend in Athens, Ga.
As they were walking down the hill towards the field, the players were starting to come towards them in the opposite direction. Justin Daniel took time out to talk to us and give us his side of the story of what happened when he arrived in sAints territory with a Roddy White jersey on.
Read what he said below
We start walking down the hill and here come every saints player and Kenny Stills passes me starts shaking his head then here comes Kenny Vaccaro laughing saying he’s got a Roddy White jersey on I go yeah he burnt that ass too, and he puts he’s hand to his ear and goes huh? I said he burnt your Colin Kapernick looking ass too. Then I said Julio will torch your ass as well just watch, then he said STFU– then here comes the rest. I heard them say lets roll his ass down the hill he’s wearing trash bla bla Bla.
Mark Ingram starts talking shit and I said you won’t make it to game 1 because your sucky ass will get cut and their TE Benjamin Watson jumped in my face and said I’ll kick your ass, and jumped at me and started cussing then he walked away- even Rob Ryan and I got into to it, but me and Watson bumped chests real hard. I then got to where the fans were at, and I heard them whispering his got a roddy jersey OMG. He’s got a Falcons jersey OMG people saying let’s beat him up. I then heard someone say I hope you’re not wanting an autograph, and I said I don’t want their shitty autographs lmao. We rode all the way back on the bus alone because no one wanted to sit near us after what had just happened back at camp.
Justin told us that his friends never got the Champ Bailey autograph because the intensity and friction was so high even though at one point they were only about 2 feet away from Champ. Daniel said this was during the time Rob Ryan was talking trash at them, so the autograph had no chance of happening.
I can't believe a teenager showed up to our practice with a Falcons jersey on and the audacity to talk trash to @KennyVaccaro4

@Justindaniel94 that was pretty funny. Pretty bold of you to wear that jersey though lol. Don't do that at training camp in Nola! Go Dawgs!

Justin Daniel definitely represented for his Falcons at camp just a couple of days ago. If nothing else, he made his presence known and voice heard to those players for the sAints.
Justin also recorded this song prior to the incident with the players entitled “Roddy White” – check it out!
