Olsen Tweets About Being Not Allowed Into a High School Field

ESPN has the follow-up to the Greg Olsen story about him being not allowed to practice at a high school field.

Other than the lockout-induced dearth of actual news, I couldn’t really figure out why it became big news Thursday that a suburban Chicago high school wouldn’t allow Chicago Bears tight end Greg Olsen to do field work on its campus recently. In a tone I would call far less than angry, Olsen told ESPN 1000 that he was “kicked off” the field and hadn’t been able to get in contact with anyone for re-entry.

Olsen seemed to agree with my news judgment, taking to Twitter late Thursday in an attempt to squelch the discussion. Here’s what he said about his experience at Stevenson High School:

This HS field thing has gotten outa control.Just to get story str8. No class was on field. Met no teachers. Left when asked and called scool [sic]

Asked If I could sign paperwork or use at another time in message which wasn’t returned

Also have been to the school to speak to various classes and groups with no issue since moved in district. Blown way out proportion
