Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer has lashed out at ESPN for allegedly stealing his breaking scoop regarding Johnny Manziel.

This isn’t the first time ESPN has been accused of passing off breaking news as their own, nor is it the first time Glazer has called them out for stealing his work. And for anyone who may not understand why Glazer would be upset about it, he gave the perfect response on Twitter.
Some may care, others don’t, but when people work hard in any job (scoops is how our performance is judged) their work should NOT be stolen! — Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) December 9, 2014
Unfortunately, ESPN can continue to get away with stunts like this. For as loud as the ESPN criticisms are (i.e. DeadSpin, Awful Announcing), the vast majority of the ESPN audience is privy to none of it.
