Skip Bayless, Darnell Dockett Engage In Twitter Wars

One of the reasons people's seem to discredit ESPN's integrity is Skip Bayless, trollmaster. Bayless seems to really enjoy name-calling and trashing professional athletes, because in the cable TV world saying stupid things is what generally gets you higher ratings. Funny how that works (and by funny I mean not funny at all). ESPN continues to employ him, despite the fact that the man lacks any real knowledge of anything sports-related at all. Trolls gotta troll.

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is his latest target, and Bayless inserts his foot deep into his mouth. Going to be hard to get it out on this occasion Skip.

Dockett talked about guns in a fortright manner, perhaps jokingly. And Skip Bayless, NFL watchdog and arbiter of morality, is quick to lay down his swift hand of justice.

Darnell Dockett shld be fined for gun tweets. Came off as boasting about artillery he owns. Sends terrible message to kids, NFL sponsors.

Yeah, way to equate the future of our country with Coors Light and Viagra, because I'm sure none of those people own guns! We can't hurt the feelings of Budweiser; otherwise the whole sport will collapse! You tell him Skip!

So naturally, Dockett had to come out and do some owning up. Of Skip of course, not of the issues.

stop acting like a Chump! you or the NFL can't protect me or my family. I haven't broke the law! Fine me for what?

RT : Darnell Dockett shld be fined for gun tweets. Came off as boasting about artillery he owns. <-- I OWN ROCKETS SKIP!

my mom was murderd and she didn't have a gun to prottect her! Damn if her son won't have one now KISS MY ASS!

Skip Bayless getting owned is a meme I could get used to. Let it happen Internet, let it happen.
