Bill GM gets prank called, basically says QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is a scrub

NFL: Buffalo Bills-Press ConferenceWell now this is going to be a mess… as Deadspin reported earlier Tuesday before the start of the NFL free agency period, Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix and Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik were the victims of a prank call that resulted in more interestinfg info than the prankers initially hoped for:

On Thursday afternoon, the pranksters called Buffalo’s publicly listed front office phone number. They claimed to be Bucs GM Mark Dominik and asked to be transferred to Buddy Nix. To their surprise, they were. Panicking, they hung up as soon as he answered.

Then Buddy Nix called them back.

Into Thursday evening, resuming again on Friday morning, Nix’s personal number kept lighting up their cell phone. They ignored it, until they came up with a plan. They would call Mark Dominik, claim to be Buddy Nix, and send the two on a phantom game of phone tag.

So they rang up the Buccaneers, but while on with Dominik’s secretary, Buddy Nix called again. It was perfect. They answered Nix’s call, then fell silent while they were patched through to Dominik.

Here’s the audio of Nix slamming current Bills starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is scheduled to make well over $6 million next season with a cap hit of $10 mil:

Ouch. Sounds like Nix has a major PR nightmare on his hands. One the bright side, the Bills ans Bucs may be able to take legal action against the pranksters, but that would clean up the mess that already been done.

You can hear the audio for the entire call here.

    Man, those must be some bored ass fans up their in Bill’s country to just call the owner for something to do. & for the owner to burn up their hone trying to get back to them….isn’t that what he pays his G.M. to do? If this is any indication to how tight a ship they are running, then Bill’s fans should be prepared for another 20 years of bad football. Fitzpatrick, you made a bunch of $$ over the last coupe seasons, so take it & don’t look back.
