I must admit I'm disgusted by this tweet from the Chesterfield twitter feed. Totally unprofessional and unnecessary.
Childish behaviour from a 'Professional' football club twitter account. But most of all apologies to poor Ben who might end up seeing this nasty tweet.

If someone can embedd the tweet, that would be great as I don't know how to do it. In the meantime, heres a screenshot of the pathetic tweet.

It's hardly 'nasty' is it? I mean, he really is a tubby man, isn't he?

Totally unnecessary and unprofessional. If it's caused any offence to Ben then it's disgusting. I would be embarrassed and ashamed if my club started taking the **** out of someone's weight on social media, especially an opposition team's physio.

No sour grapes from me. We could have won 3-0 and I'd still think they're absolute ********s.

This looks a bit precious to me, I struggle to see how people are offended by this.

Bit of both for me.

It's not something to get hot under the collar about, but then again the Chesterfield twitter is laboring it a bit by posting the pic as well some 6 minutes later and using the word "waddle".

Maybe he was just a bit lost for something better to say. :blush:

It's unprofessional but if we're talking about unprofessionalism on Twitter accounts here's your winner... or loser!

In a world of my own.
Personally think its pretty poor form to highlight someone's size on a professional club/company twitter. It is not deeply offensive but its poor judgement I think and embarrassing for the club (them).

Don't think an official account should be posting something like that, but I'm sure Ben wasn't offended. He always takes stick in good spirit.

I'm sure these things are run by kids with no training in how to act responsibly who think it's just #massivebantz

I doubt many people saw this anyway.

How many Chesterfield fans can afford a smart phone?
