Vilma has words for Peter King
Vilma was brought out of his recent Twitter break when just a short time after Hawthorne was signed, King posted the following on his Twitter account:

@SI_PeterKing: Curtis Lofton, Chris Chamberlain, David Hawthorne. Get the message, Jonathan Vilma?

Vilma didn’t take long to respond and he quoted the above tweet with this added onto the end:

@JonVilma51: that u know how to type people’s names?

A few minutes later Vilma sent King this tweet directly:

@JonVilma51: @SI_PeterKing reckless journalism is beneath you sir. You’ve become a glorified blogger

Close to an hour ago, King quoted the above tweet by Vilma but added this:

@SI_PeterKing: It’s the NFL investigation, Jonathan. Not me.

Some replies to King’s tweets would suggest otherwise though according to his and Vilma’s followers

Vilma tweeted King again calling him a blogger who takes shots at players and then ended with this:

@JonVilma51: @SI_PeterKing not going to go back and forth with you, enjoy your night sir.

Peter King is a total douchebag. But he's still better than the insufferable Mike Florio.

These goons make me feel like a grandpa. I find myself going around saying I miss the good 'ole days, when journalists reported facts, not opinions. And if they got their facts wrong, they were scoffed at and sometimes fired. Now they're paid for the sole purpose of stirring controversy because, apparently, drama is all the rage now.

Vilma should have never given him the time of day

SloMotion 04-04-2012 05:29 AM

No, he probably shouldn't have, but I'm glad he did.

Yawn... I don't care at all what people do or say on twatter.

So I'm guessing Peter King has a bounty on Vilma huh.

I wonder if SI is going to do anything with this. He is out of line and if this is made national, can be bad press for SI. Peter King represents the company that he writes for through that twitter account. Classless.

I don't follow any twitter feeds, but I have to admit that Vilma has some really funny tweets from time to time.

That exchange is beneath both of them.

Thats the type of conflict you settle over the phone or in person, not behind a keyboard.
