    Glazer broke the "Manziel will start" story. ESPN then reported it with "sources told ESPN" without tying it to one of their NFL insiders as they usually do:


    Glazer then posted the following via Twitter:

    Who gives a shit. Manziel is starting over Hoyer? Gee, didn't see that bit of "news" coming. Can't believe people like Glazer get their tights in a bunch over stuff like this. It's not like someone leaked him the crop outlook for frozen concentrated orange juice, for chrissakes.

    It's funny that Glazer acts like he never does this.

    This kind of incremental #Scoopage is mind-numbingly repetitive. No doubt news outlets could do a better job citing who broke it first but really, does small crap like this really matter. The true scooping is what Yahoo did with the Miami stuff, what Deadspin did with the Te'o stuff. What TMZ did with Ray Rice vid. This incremental everybody is gonna know in five minutes anyway stuff is way, way, way overblown. You should get credit if you break news. You should also get the fuck over yourself.

    Yeah, while it's not much of a scoop, but it is still unethical and unprofessional not to give credit. Glazer has every right to be pissed, though he does seem to do the same thing on occasion. The seeming insignificance of the news doesn't make it OK.
