Responding to New York Jet Antonio Cromartie's rant about how the players' union needs "to get their sh— together and just get it done," Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck took to the tubes and "joked" about Cromartie's intelligence.

Then, he deleted it.

Cromartie believes that somebody who says something about someone else should be man enough to let those words stand. "I will smash ur face in," was part of his response.

By afternoon, Hasselbeck said he was sorry. Then he laughed in Cromartie's face for all to see.
