Tiki Barber got in a shouting match with a New York columnist

Tiki Barber says Peyton Manning is making case for best QB ever

The two worst things in sports media are talk radio and tabloid columnists. So what do we get when we combine the two? Just a whole lot of awfulness. 

Former Giants running back Tiki Barber told a California radio station on Monday that he thinks Tom Coughlin should be fired. Gary Myers, a columnist for the New York Daily News, responded by taking a few shots at Barber on Twitter.

This is all not very interesting, but Tiki decided to invite Myers on his radio so the two could yell at each other. The audio can't be embedded here but you can find it at the bottom of this page.

Barber jumps right in and accuses Myers of having a "personal vendetta" against Barber. Myers is upset with Barber's lack of pleasantries. "The first thing you could do is say good morning, at least," Myers says.

Things deteriorate quickly. Before long, Myers and Barber are shouting over one another, forcing Barber's co-host to step in like a teacher on the playground. Barber ended the so-called interview by telling Myers, "Have a great life." It was all really terrible.
