You did it, spiteful fantasy football fans. You ruined the game for one of its best real players.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice announced Sunday, after recording his worst game in recent memory and then leaving early with a strained hip flexor, that Twitter haters had turned him off the game.

Turns out, plenty of players were less concerned with Rice’s health than with the few fantasy points he scored.

Rice was initially unfazed, and made a classic Internet mistake: professing theism when trolls lurk nearby.

Life could be worse for Rice, though. The Ravens ended up eking by the Cleveland Browns, 14-6, and his hip isn’t expected to keep him out long.
