Default Pranksters Record Two NFL GMs Discussing Free Agency Over The Phone

It's a brilliant prank, and it never should've worked. How did a couple of 20-year-olds listen in on two NFL executives talking shop the day before free agency began? A little luck, great timing, and a 73-year old general manager who doesn't really understand how telephones work.

why? because two dumb asses decided to speak truthfully in a business that requires lies and subterfuge?
you're a NFL general manager, you should know a set up when you see one.

besides, they only said what everyone already knew and hell, Nix has said it multiple times that the Bills need a franchise QB. why they keep Fitz around IDK.

No, I expect GM's to b**** to one another about the ins and outs of their job. The dick thing is prank calling, like they cannot find out who called and then deciding to record it. Thats just stupid.

Nix extended him, 6 games in two years ago. It wasn't an outrageous deal for a decent starter.... a-hem.... starter..... only the Bills sign up a journeyman back-up QB other have casted off to a 6 year extension...

Any wonder why these Tards hold the current longest playoffless streak?

here's the entire problem with your premise. for a prank call to work you have to be dumb enough to fall for it. fool me once, shame on me.
