Chad Ochocinco Leads All NFL Players On Klout

Klout, the social media analytics company that determines if you’re cool or not in cyberspace, has released their list of the Top 10 NFL Players with Klout.

No surprise that Chad Ochocinco tops this list. He’s been known more for his Twitter antics than his play on the field the last couple of seasons.

The real shocker? Braylon Edwards.

For the record, my Klout score as of this post clocks in at 59.

NBA Referee Sues AP Reporter Over Tweet

NBA referee Bill Spooner filed a lawsuit on Monday against Associated Press reporter Jon Krawczynski for a tweet made on Jan. 24 when Minnesota hosted the Houston Rockets.

During the second quarter of the Timberwolves-Rockets game, Spooner called a foul on Anthony Tolliver of Minnesota. Timberwolves head coach Kurt Rambis was upset about the call and asked Spooner how he would get those points back.

Shortly after, Krawczynski tweeted, “Ref Bill Spooner told Rambis he’d “get it back” after a bad call. Then he made an even worse call on Rockets. That’s NBA officiating folks.”

Spooner, 54, is seeking in excess of $75,000 for “defamation per se to his professional and business reputation, a declaratory judgment that the Twitter publication constitutes defamation and an injunction requiring the removal of defamatory statements from the Defendants’ Internet postings.” Read more
