During ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” on Wednesday*, Bob Ley hosted a segment about NFL players who have had troubles in the past but seem to have found a home with their current teams. Specifically, it was about the Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill and the Bills’ Richie Incognito.

Ley noted that the NFL’s Twitter header features the Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill and De’Anthony Thomas. It’s a photo of Hill returning a free kick for a touchdown from the Chiefs’ 30-27 overtime win at Denver on Sunday.

Ley also noted that the NFL’s Twitter account has more followers than president-elect Donald Trump, so quite a few people would see the NFL celebrating the accomplishments of Hill, an admitted domestic abuser. That decision by the NFL has made some people upset.
