On Sunday, the Panthers won their NFL Divisional Playoff match-up against the Seattle Seahawks by a one-touchdown margin, but for much of the game, it wasn’t that close. The Panthers took a 31-0 lead into halftime, a mid-game deficit no NFL time has ever recovered from, and though the Seahawks came close, they didn’t become the first.
Though the team has moved on to preparing for their NFC Championship foe, the Arizona Cardinals, it appears one Panthers isn’t done stepping all over Seattle: rookie linebacker Shaq Thompson. The former Univ. of Washington standout took to Snapchat to release lingering frustration for Russell Wilson‘s resilient squad, screaming “F*ck the Seahawks!” in a short video clip, delivering the same “f*ck y’all” to Seahawks fans everywhere.

Naturally, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera, who recently banned his players from riding hoverboards after catching wind of them occasionally exploding on their riders, talked to Thompson about his actions. He didn’t offer much information about the chat, outside of admitting to the Charlotte Observer that he did speak with his linebacker, and that they’re moving on to Arizona.
