HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Two college kids in New York face felony charges for setting up a conference call between two NFL General Managers under false pretenses, recording it, and sending it to a publication last week.
According to deadspin.com, “…Buffalo GM Buddy Nix and Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik shot the s**t for about six minutes. They talked about their impending free agents, their frustration with a new three-day negotiating window, and the major handicap of not having a franchise quarterback. They had no idea that a pair of pranksters had set the whole chat up, or that those pranksters were still on the line, listening in,” stated deadspin.com.
The college kids called Buffalo’s publicly listed front office phone number, making the claim that they were the Bucs GM Mark Dominik. They asked to be transferred to Buddy Nix. “To their surprise, they were”, added deadspin.com. Panicking, they hung up as soon as he answered,”stated the website. “Then Buddy Nix called them back. And he kept calling back. Into Thursday evening, resuming again on Friday morning, Nix’s personal number kept lighting up their cell phone. They ignored it, until they came up with a plan. They would call Mark Dominik, claim to be Buddy Nix, and send the two on a phantom game of phone tag.”
