Shanle drew the heat of Atlanta Falcons fans earlier this season when he referred to them as the “little brothers” of the Saints. He was engaged in a Twitter war of sorts following the Falcons loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
Falcons fans lit into Shanle as he gloated on the loss with one Falcon fan (@SpRoush) tweeting to him, “wait who are you….” Shanle responded, “this guy…” and attached a picture of him holding the Lombardi Trophy following the Saints Super Bowl XLIV win.
Shanle sent numerous Falcon supporters pictures of his Super Bowl ring coyly placed on his extended middle finger. He also tweeted pictures of game balls he received following victories over the Falcons.
