No. 6: John Clayton Gets Mad At Us
When the Raiders foolishly gave up two first-round draft picks for Carson Palmer
last season, I went on Twitter and said the team also traded star running back Darren McFadden
AND draft picks to the Jets for just-out-of-prison Plaxico Burress
. A radio station in Seattle totally missed the sarcasm and asked ESPN's John Clayton
about the "trade" during an interview. Clayton was taken aback by the particulars because the deal was so absurd. Later in the interview, the hosts told Clayton that I had been kidding around. Clayton was not amused
and said, "Doesn't he realize on Twitter there are no jokes?"
