Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix Talks About Fitzpatrick On Prank Call [AUDIO]
Buddy Nix was the subject of a nasty prank that was posted on the website Deadspin. He thought he was talking only to Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik. What he didn’t know was that his line was also being heard by a couple 20 year olds that were listening in and recording the conversation.
If you’ve ever imagined what it would be like to hear two general managers speaking to each other a couple days before free agency, now you can get an even better idea. The two GMs talked about everything from new rules to Nix even commenting on current quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
I don’t think Buddy did anything wrong here. That’s what GMs do. They are supposed to be assessing their players and what the team needs. However, when they discuss them with other possible trade partners they don’t assume that anyone will be listening in to their conversations.
