This just in from Facebook:
Donte Whitner is about to get another cell phone and call it the Fan Phone…as soon as I get it I’ll post the phone number on here…wont answer all the time but you guys can text and call me!!!! COOL?
Whitner, who really is active on Facebook, posted that today, and I’m hyper excited. This is how a star on a team really connects with his fans. I fully expect he’s going to get inundated with texts and calls and messages with little time to return them, but the effort is remarkable.
Whitner – our first current Duke of Awesome – is showing exactly how a player recovers his image after an unfortunate mistake.
Though realwiley asks: “although is he REALLY prepared to meet the fans? Things could get ugly if the team slides.”
I’d tend to agree, but Bills fans, for all their drunken hijinks, are incredibly loyal to their team:
UPDATE: Just to show he’s a good sport, this should be Donte’s voicemail message:
