Peter King vs. Chris Kluwe Twitter Fight
If there's one thing all of us armchair jocks are guilty of, it's hollering advice at the pros on the field as if we really have any clue as to how they could do their jobs better than they do.
This is more or less why Sports Illustrated writer Peter King and Vikings punter Chris Kluwe found themselves in a Twitter fight today.
Kluwe linked approvingly to a Deadspin post by Nate Jackson, the former former Broncos tight end, who said it's not cool for the team and the coach to blame the kicker for a losing game's worth of crappy play.
Jackson's post centered on a flubbed kick by Giants punter Matt Dodge. King caught wind of Kluwe's tweet and responded with the suggestion that Dodge had no one to blame but himself.
