Some rivalries between players never die. Even when their playing days are over, sometimes the hate just won’t end. Apparently, that’s the case with Boomer Esiason and Lawrence Taylor. Both guys have reportedly disliked each other for years, but Esiason’s recent appearance on a documentary about LT, has re-stirred the pot. In the film, the former quarterback said that LT received special treatment during his career, and in the past, he’s even went as far to call him a disgrace.
These comments were brought to Taylor’s attention during a recent radio interview and the former linebacker did not take to them kindly. Here’s what he had to say about the former QB and current TV analyst:
“What the hell you got Boomer Esiason on something that – a piece you do of me? We can’t stand each other, he don’t know a f*** about me. What the hell’s he doing on it? First of all, Boomer’s a dickhead. Hey, listen. I remember when he was there running the streets, screwing all kind of hoes. Don’t give me that holier than thou s***. I don’t wanna hear that s***. He gets off on it. He’s still talking about me. I ain’t talking about him.”
So yeah, the hate between the two is mutual.
Since his retirement, LT has admitted to abusing drugs and cheating the NFL‘s urine testing system. I understand where both guys are coming from, but at this point, they’re just providing football fans with entertaining quotes. Nothing can change what LT has done and no one can take away Esiason’s right to voice his opinion.
