When you try me with a sorry reporter like @RapSheet, that’s the result you’re going to get. Don’t you ever talk about me.
Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport have been going at it off and on over the past few months. Their latest battle was over free agent Brandon Browner who came to terms with the New England Patriots.
Earlier this week, Rapoport tweeted that Browner would sign with New England, but his agent who was trying to play hockey in his Colorado's men's league was having none of it. He called Florio to scoff at Rapoport and other "irresponsible journalists." It led Florio to go on Twitter Friday to blast Rapoport and to which there was a prompt response which you see above.
This isn't the first time Florio and Rapoport have squared off. In February, Rapoport and San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York debunked a Florio report that the team almost traded coach Jim Harbaugh to Cleveland.
Florio has been willing to go mano-a-mano with anyone he can access. There was the infamous dustup in January 2013 with CBS' Jason La Canfora. And he once got into a Twitter fight with the Jacksonville Jaguars mascot.
There's no doubt that Florio is a bulldog and is willing to square off with anyone at a moment's notice, but there is a saying about knowing when to pick your battles. Apparently Florio is one who doesn't like to let go once he gets started.no comments
