A Twitter war has broken out between former New York Giants teammates Jeremy Shockey and Amani Toomer. The flame war started with the news that Shockey, who was traded from the Giants after a 2008 shouting match with Jerry Reese, said he would be interested in a return to the team.
Responding to a tweet from New York Daily news columnist Gary Myers, Toomer called the former Giants tight end a "bad teammate. Worse person." The entire tweet is below.
@garymyersNYDN No!!Shockey"I will never play4 you again!"he yelled at jerry Reese in 08. Let him keep his word. Bad teammate, worse person.— Amani Toomer (@AmaniAToomer) March 15, 2012
Shockey responded with a couple of remarks, one aimed at the New York media and one especially for Toomer.
About the media:
"It's funny how the Ny media still try's to make money off me! Can anyone find a quote from me on me wanting to play for the GAINTS?"
About Toomer, Shockey tweeted:
"Haha. Well he was the lazy one that broke my leg!!" Shockey also added in a message sent to Toomer "Go get a bucket of rocks and start throwing them at your glass house."
Ah, fun. Do we miss Shockey around New York, gang?
