Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White recently made a bet on March Madness.
Prior to the game White told the fan he would give season tickets if Mercer somehow pulled up off the upset. It happened and almost immediately White announced that he would give the fan tickets to the Chicago game.
While that was fine enough for the fan (he did not wager anything after-all) there were plenty who took White to task for making $4 million last season and not fully honoring the deal.
Now White is making it right.
White is giving the fan season tickets, tickets to the Super Bowl, sideline passes and a day at camp.

White later tweeted out that he took his position as a role model seriously because kids mattered to him.
To the parents on here that I am your kids role model let them know I am a man of my word because they actually do matter to me
