Stafford talks about being impersonated on social networks
Lots of updates today, but they'll probably be few and far in between these next two weeks since the Lions have a bye this Sunday.
The NFL Players Association has posted a feature on Matthew. It includes an interview, photos, videos, etc. You can also watch the NFLPA's "Strength In Numbers" TV commercial.
Also, Matthew has updated his NameDrop blog, and he had some interesting things to say about people impersonating him on social networking sites. If you remember, last week Grand Rapids Press writer Brian VanOchten cited a fake Twitter account on his column. The Twitter poster claimed to be Matthew, and he or she posted comments regarding Matthew's presence at practice on Thursday which were untrue. The whole thing caused a stir among fans until Lions' officials verified that the account was fake.
By the way, MLive.com is advertising Matthew's NameDrop site. Here's the banner that they are using.
