As you’ve probably heard by now, Deadspin.com has published an article about a prank done on Bills GM Buddy Nix and Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik. Deadspin is one of my favorite sites because they aren’t afraid to shy away from some stories like others might be, like the Manti Te’o situation or the Sarah Phillips ESPN fiasco.
Anyways, you can see the whole explanation of how the pranksters tricked the two GMs here, but to put it in a nutshell they connected the two GMs in a game of phone tag, then once they were finally lined up together listened in to their conversation.
Nix makes some interesting comments regarding Ryan Fitzpatrick, saying, “we’re still struggling here with our quarterback…We’re not really struggling–he’s going to have to do something, or we’ll have to.”
The two GMs also complain about the new free agency rules and Nix says that the Bills are set at tackle when Dominik offers a player.
The team released a statement earlier today.
We are aware of the report on Deadspin involving a phone conversation with Bills GM Buddy Nix. We have made the league aware of the report and are reviewing it with legal counsel.
Of course this type of behavior is very illegal, but its still interesting to see an inside look into what the GMs talk about. It also gives you a peek into how Buddy Nix and the Bills are thinking right now, so I’d really advise giving the whole recording a listen.
