Wide receiver Golden Tate has a new home with the Detroit Lions, but some rumors about his time in Seattle are still lingering. I haven’t been reporting on the rumors myself as of yet because you never know what’s true when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Tate himself however took to Twitter last night to address the rumors that he slept with Russell Wilson‘s wife Ashton, which supposedly was a contributing factor in their divorce.

That last tweet summarizes my feelings on the matter completely.

Speculating about trade rumors and free agency and actual football intrigue is a lot of fun. Whispering (or blogging) about who slept with who is the realm of pathetic people whose own personal lives are so boring they waste their time gossiping about others.

Maybe Tate is denying the allegations about sleeping with Ashton because he wants to defend his reputation – maybe they actually happened. If so it would certainly explain Wilson’s decision to divorce Ashton, but who knows? That Tate felt compelled to even speak to the rumor says a lot about the pervasive nature of social media gossip.

Wilson is now the most eligible bachelor on the west coast and Tate has a good shot at the Pro Bowl in the Lions’ pass-heavy offense, but the bottom line is we’re never going to know for sure either way.

Eleanor Roosevelt said it best: “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

  1. There is no denial in all those tweets. Golden Tate doesn’t deny anything. In fact it’s a clever way of not denying anything. Translated, Golden Tate had an affair with Wilson’s wife.
