After the Raiders ridiculously traded two first-round draft picks (one conditional) to the Bengals for Carson Palmer, I decided to have some fun on Twitter. I said the Raiders offered the Jets Darren McFadden for Plaxico Burress, and I added that Oakland may throw in draft picks to sweeten the deal. Maybe the scars from the Palmer trade were too fresh, because many people thought I was serious. Included in that group was the Brock and Salk Show on 710 ESPN Seattle. The hosts even asked ESPN's John Clayton about "the rumor" at the start of this clip. Then forward to the 15:40 mark when they realize the tweet was a joke and Clayton scolds me, saying, "Doesn't he realize on Twitter there are no jokes?" Then forward to the 21:00 mark to hear them take some final shots and either shoot me or blow me up, I can't tell. Just to be clear, though, Brock and Salk referred to me as "a kid" at one point, so just for that, there are no hard feelings on my end.
