Royce White shows off Frank Sinatra tattoo, questions headline writers at the Inquirer

New Sixers forward Royce White was present at Sixers media day on Friday and, before addressing concerns over his travel arrangements, showed off this awesome tattoo of Ol’ Blue Eyes on his arm:

We’ll take this time to briefly revisit my Frank Sinatra-Sixers corollary.

Anyway, notice the tweet above is from the Inqy’s Sixers beat writer Keith Pompey. Pompey would later write an article titled, “Royce White downplays his aversion to flying.” Quotes here:

“I think the most glaring [misconception], probably, from paying attention to the public opinions has to be that I can’t fly,” White said. “(A) that I don’t want to fly. And (B) that I won’t fly by choice.”

“I think a lot of people think that I and the Rockets went through a situation that was really hostile,” he said, “and it really wasn’t. It was more so a legislation thing . . . and it got really complex and technical.”
White went on to say that he’ll fly when he has to and drive when he can. Perfectly reasonable. He also uses the word “glaring” related to the word [misconception] to state that the public has the wrong idea about his aversion to travel. Could that be seen as “downplaying” the issue relative to everyone’s expectations? Yup.
But not to Royce:

It goes on from there:

Trust us, Royce, very few of us are in this for the money. #BeWell

    This psycho is going to be a very entertaining aspect of what is going to be a horrible season!

      That’s a clear exaggeration. Nobody pays attention to Pompey.

    I love the “I don’t write the headlines” excuse, as if you can write a story about a car accident and the headline ends up being “President Obama is a Child Molester”, and you can’t do anything about it.
