Mike Florio Reaches Previously Unseen Level of Butthurtedness Over Evan Mathis Prank

Voila_Capture 2014-06-13_11-19-11_AM

Evan Mathis very obviously enjoys messing with the media, ostensibly to prove a point about how people run with completely unsubstantiated rumors and Twitter reports (what sort of jackass does that?!). To be fair to the media, flat out lying to someone just for shits and giggles – like Mathis did to Paul Domowitch – isn’t nearly as cool or clever as the prank Mathis pulled off last night. But, there’s an underlying theme to his antics – that the media sucks – which not surprisingly bothers some people in the media. Including Mike FlorioEspecially Mike Florio:

Good one, Evan. Now grow up.

Whether it’s lying to one reporter or lying to all of them, the lesson is that no one should listen to anything Mathis ever has to say, if he’s going to continue to engage in the pro athlete equivalent of having pizzas delivered to his next-door neighbor.

That’s hilarious. When you’re 12.Regardless of what any players or fans think of the media, the media has a job to do, just like everyone else. What Mathis has been doing is no different than a member of the media standing on the sidelines and shining a laser pointer in his eyes as he’s trying to prepare for the snap. That’s also hilarious. When you’re 12.

That’s… not even in the same ballpark as shining a laser pointer in an NFL player’s eyes. Not even close. It’s more akin to screenshotting accidental athlete Tweets and then posting them on a blog or other public forum for the express purpose of making fun of athletes. But again, I’m not sure what kind of jackass would do that.

Of course, the buried lede in all this is that the first letters of the items on the $64k bill spelled out rock-paper-scissors-roshambo, as picked up by Adam Schefter:

This is a multi-pronged, multi-layered troll job by Mathis. Frankly, it’s impressive. I’m not sure what else to say.

  1. Florio is happy to jump on athlete’s mistakes and make mountains out of their molehills. How’s it feel with the shoe on the other foot?

    Profootballtalk used to be the shit before NBC bought it. Now, Florio thinks hes big time and acts like such a little pussy about everything. He’s a self promoting faggot (worse than Kyle) who made a huge deal about when TO called him (and other media members) the devil. Florio needs to realize that nobody cares about his opinions at all. He’s gotten so bad that I can guess it’s his article just by the level of snark and douchey comments.

    FUCK FLORIO

  5. Florio was cool back in 2007. Sucks now

    Absolute BS. He never lied,flat out or otherwise. Domo asked him if he was going to be at the workouts and he tweeted a google map pin of a location in the carribean. That’s all, misleading yes but no lie and Domo ran with it. Get your facts straight before writing next time.
