NBC Sports’ Mike Florio, if I could borrow a lyric from the Mel & Tim song “Backfield In Motion,” is being called for holding on to someone else.
The mysterious Internet sports reporter known as Incarcerated Bob claims that the founder and editor of ProFootballTalk.com, who also appears regularly on NBC Sports Network as well as NBC during football season, “had an affair with an employee at NBC Sports,” adding that an “assistant quit and money was exchanged.” The tweet was punctuated with, “WOW.”
Why you might not be led to believe this is true: According to this YouTube video, Bob appears to have it in for Florio.
I’m sure Bob was well aware of Florio’s law background before going forward with this report.
And sure enough, a couple of hours after tweeting this rumor, he dared Florio to “get those lawyers ready.”
Are you ready for some hardball?
