Overheard On Twitter: Allen Robinson Roasts Cornerback He Made ‘The Catch’ Over

Yesterday, Allen Robinson permanently made his famous catch from the 2013, quadruple overtime upset over Michigan a part of himself by getting the catch over Michigan cornerback Channing Stribling tattooed along the right side of his torso. He announced the tattoo with a bold tweet, more or less implying that he and the catch are “legendary”.

This description caught the eye of both fans of the wide receiver, and detractors, including someone who played a special role in Robinson’s catch, none other than Channing Stribling. Stribling fired off a few not-so-ambiguous tweets about what he does and doesn’t consider to be legendary, capped off by this shot at the former consensus All-American.  

Robinson, who tied for the most receiving touchdowns in the NFL this past season, took little time to respond to Stribling with a tweet of his own.

After that, the two continued to take shots at each other, with Stribling holding his ground that Robinson isn’t a legend, and Robinson repeatedly giving him reasons he is.  

Finally, Robinson ended with everyone’s favorite kind of trolling, a nice, easy shot at Stribling’s inability to spell at an elementary school level.  

Keep doing you, A-Rob.
