Fox Sports host Colin Cowherd has created a twitter feud with Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr. – and his show, “The Herd,” is surely seeing a jump in the ratings as a result.
It all started on Thursday afternoon when Cowherd shared his version of the “10 Biggest Moments of Odell Beckham’s Career.” The list was topped by OBJ’s epic one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys, but it also included lowlights such as the infamous Miami boat trip, fighting the kicking net, and the “meltdown in the tunnel.”
Says Cowherd, “When you go back, it’s one great catch, one great commercial and a lot of nonsense. I mean, that’s my problem.’’
Both Beckham and Mayfield took issue with the video. The Browns QB called Cowherd a clown, adding, “Wisdom didn’t come with age for you did it?.” In defense of his teammate, Mayfield tweeted, “You forget the kids and people he inspires. That goes much further than football.”
Beckham posted a slightly longer response, which included the following:
“NOWWWW UVE GONE TOOOO FAR…. bro I understand nobody listens to ur show but stop using my name to get clout bro, I let u say and do whatever u want but uve gone to far now. So heres the attention U wanted and desperately needed i see. I had respect for u after talkin on the ph.”
“But I honestly I really hate to even give u this spotlight. Just put some respect on my name as ur talkin bout me and my family to booost ur TV shows and ratings. If I was GREAT then u and others wouldn’t talk about me this much. I DONT hear much talk bout anybody else at All.”
