Who would’ve guessed Matthew Berry had so many nicknames that weren’t Roto. Matthew Berry The Mayor of Salt City, @MatthewBerryTMS “Too Much Salt”, Matthew Saltberry, Matty Saltz, Matty Melt the Ice with Salt, and I’m sure I could think of more if necessary, but that’s besides the point.
Matthew Berry, writer of the annual 100 Facts to Consider for the 2017 Fantasy Football Season on ESPN, failed to realize by calling out friend of the podcast Mitchell Renz of Gridiron Experts for writing a similar article to him, which as far as I know he doesn’t have a monopoly on fantasy football statistic writing styles, he was actually copying someone’s style himself. Berry pulled one right out of the Kevin Durant Twitter Feud Playbook by getting mad at someone for speaking truths on twitter.
In the same way Kevin Durant needs to fight someone for telling the world about his fart fetishes, Matthew Berry needs to create conflicts because he’s mad he’s not the only one who can put fantasy stats on twitter, and he wanted some views obviously.
Here’s the twist. What if I told you that the 2017 100 fantasy football stats article was actually written by Mitchell Renz before Matthew Berry. And what if I told you The Football Guys You Fantasize About actually has the breaking news story to be released in podcast form on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017. Stay tuned.
