Found November 13, 2012 on Awful Announcing:
Last night on the ESPN MNF Postgame, Rick Reilly was caught with his hand in the journalistic cookie jar.  He was seen on camera directing Stuart Scott to give him credit for breaking Ben Roethlisberger's shoulder injury on Twitter even though he clearly didn't break Ben Roethlisberger's shoulder injury on Twitter.  That awkward piece of footage is growing in legend as ESPN NFL reporter Ed Werder took this (apparent) shot at Reilly on his Twitter page this afternoon... How much of this is humor and how much of this is sarcasm from Werder is impossible to tell without a sarcasm font.  (C'mon Twitter!)  Buuuuut... Werder just recently deleted the tweet, so we're thinking he may have gotten word from up above that it's not best to publicly call out the multi-million dollar star pundit whatever the case may be. Still, the thought of ESPN reporters cannibalizing each other is sure to send all of us into a drunken stupor.  Maybe Ed Werder is the one to lead a revolution at ESPN, now that he's free from Brett Favre Watch.
