Some UGA players upset by Ga. Tech fan comments online

There is a comment thread titled “I am happy Aaron Murray got injured” on stingtalk.com, a Georgia Tech sports message board not affiliated with the school.

It was started on Sunday at 2 a.m. and has more than 130 subsequent comments on it. Some commenters are siding with the theme of the thread’s title and some are denouncing the thread.

Georgia receiver Chris Conley doesn’t need to go far to find motivation to go against the Yellow Jackets. He hears about threads and comments like on stingtalk.com and he looks at his Twitter mentions.

“But just some of the comments that were made about players on the team being injured, namely players that just got injured, it kind of pissed some people off,” Conley said. “It rubs them wrong. There’s not searching for motivation for this game.”

Conley tweeted on Monday about all the riff-raff the Internet and some Georgia Tech fans have had to offer so far this week.

“Why do tech fans gotta tweet at me about stuff? I couldnt care less about your GAvsTech delusions. My projects aren’t football related. Smh,” the tweet reads.

Conley said fans’ comments can wear thin and he’s just ready for the game to be played.

“Just some things that people said about anyone,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of people injured and they’ve talked about a lot of them. Not necessarily players, but just fans. It’s a big rivalry in the state, everyone’s always talking about it.”
