Nick Sundberg stands up to Twitter bullies for Sav Rocca

A relationship between a punter and his long snapper is a special, and Nick Sundberg and Sav Rocca are definitely buddies, so when fans reacted poorly to a birthday tweet by the Redskins, Sundberg leapt to action.

It started on Wednesday, when the Redskins tweeted this message:


Well, Redskins fans are a bit surly at the moment and the internet can be a terrible place. Many of the responses to that tweet weren’t very nice. Enter Sundberg, who jumped to his punter’s defense.


Sav Rocca? More like Save Rocca, amirite?

That wasn’t the end of it for Sundberg, who continued to battle some unkind souls. This is why we can’t have nice things.
