It's Christmas Eve, which means this is no time for a Twitter War. This is a time to spread holiday cheer, a time to be joyful, a time to be kind and generous and giving to your fellow man. A time to put aside differences and come together. A time... aww forget that, let's play the feud!
The two gentlemen above, ESPN's Numbers Never Lie host Michael Smith and Dave Dameshek of NFL.com and NFL Network look like nice enough guys, right? They're both successful at what they do and both have decent followings. But over Sunday night and Monday morning, they became involved in a holiday slugfest over Dameshek's insinuation that Numbers Never Lie stole the animation bits of the "N if L." You can view one of Dameshek's segments here and one of NNL's animation segments here and screengrabs below.

As you can see, both are remarkably similar and for whatever reason, Dameshek decided December 23rd was the time to air his grievances to Smith on Twitter.
It's a Festivus smackdown for the ages delivering holiday presents of pain for all to enjoy. ESPN vs NFL Network! Smith vs Dameshek! Whiteboard animation vs whiteboard animation! Get your popcorn ready...no comments
