What's Right With Nick Wright

Welcome back to Twitter Wars, where we meticulously chronicle sports media personalities arguing on social media like it’s a heavyweight title fight because we have nothing else better to do with our lives!

Over the years, Sports Illustrated media writer Richard Deitsch has been the unquestioned king of Twitter Wars. His record over time is impressive and he’s done battle with everyone from Darren Rovell to Clay Travis to Piers Morgan.

This time, however. Deitsch may have met his match in a new Twitter Wars upstart – FS1 host Nick Wright.

It started with a cheeky exchange early in the day about Skip Bayless’ hire at FS1.

@richarddeitsch I'm tweeting out my article about it, with a political tease/pipe dream, 5x while plugging our revamped website. Sound good?

@richarddeitsch I knew that tweet had just enough snark to get you to break from 'Skip tweets only' replies. Week's off to a great start.

It really escalated several hours later with Wright tweeting about the election and radio host Bill Mitchell denigrating fallen US soldier Humayan Khan. Mitchell’s despicable original tweet can be seen here in screenshot form since it was deleted. Deitsch once again invoked the name of Wright’s new FS1 colleague Skip Bayless, and business picked up.

Grab some popcorn for old time’s sake, here we go…

@getnickwright This awful dude does in his world what Bayless does in ours. Content different; goals the same. You know this too.

— Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

Deitsch is Bayless’ number one critic and has been for years. The SI scribe will frequently tweet about his distaste for his antics and compare the Bayless act to other things in sports and media. However, the analogy between Bayless and some shock jock criticizing a war hero obviously did not sit well with Wright and spawned this multi-tweet response.

@richarddeitsch 1- I reject the notion that Bill’s world & my world are separate. What he’s talking about touches us all.

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch 2- Bill’s “goal” is to defame an American hero, and tilt a critical election. So, no, the “goals” aren’t the same.

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch 3- I worry you’re going to look back on this vendetta and wonder where you lost your true north, b/c this is outrageous… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright Agreed. I’m taking shows that are primarily sports based content vs. politically-oriented content. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

Deitsch countered by sticking to his original statement and then the debate expanded into the larger sports media.

@getnickwright His goals are to be a provocateur through agenda driven commentary. That is Skip Bayless. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … There’s a popular morning show in Boston where the host is openly racist. Not a peep from you… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright You must have missed the podcast where I interviewed his producer and asked about the show’s history with race. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … There’s leading sports personalities who go out of their way to dog whistle themselves into the conversation… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … There’s studio hosts who are such corporate shills that the viewer is deprived of any possibility of critical thought…

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … And then there’s your favorite punching bag, Skip, who thinks LeBron is overrated & loved Tebow…

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright That you call it a vendetta now that you are at FS1 means you might be lost on all this. I hope not. I wish the best for you. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … And you compare him to a charlatan denigrating a war hero for personal gain? I mean, think about that. It’s absurd… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright You are spinning with false equivalence and you devalue Bayless’s misgogony and outing people’s sexuality. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … You say “misogyny & race baiting” are his calling card. Show me that. And calling card to whom but you?… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright Nick, I’m going walk away here. It’s all a Google search away, written by many, time and again. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

Twitter

It’s true, “Skip Bayless race-baiter” is just a Google search away. Also, Deitsch is probably referring to Bayless attempting to out Cowboys QB Troy Aikman as gay in a book even though that has never been substantiated. Back to the tweets!

@richarddeitsch … Plenty of people don’t like Skip because of LeBron or Tebow, but I must’ve missed the race baiting and misogyny… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … If you have evidence, present it. Otherwise, what is going on here? You don’t like his style of TV. Fine. That’s cool…

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

Tabs steam code. @richarddeitsch … Thankfully for you there’s a dozen different options. But the marketplace has spoken here, so maybe that’s your beef…

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

Wright’s tweetstorm had the speed and accuracy we’ve rarely seen in a Twitter War. This was like watching a young prodigy Mike Tyson in the ring. Not only did Wright have three tweets to Deitsch’s one on most occasions, they were pinpoint blows. Take for instance Wright’s comments on the sports media marketplace justifying the salaries and platforms given to the likes of Skip Bayless. (No matter how much critics may dislike his persona, he drew ratings and revenue for ESPN on First Take.) Wright not only connected that to Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue….

@richarddeitsch … But it’s the same marketplace that allows your employer to run your stuff with swimsuit edition money, so there is that. — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

Nick Wright Cuck

… but he also landed the seminal blow of the Twitter War with this tweet…

@richarddeitsch 4- You know I generally like your stuff, but you also know this: You to Skip *is* Skip to LeBron. And that hasn’t changed… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

Even though Deitsch attempted a brief rally, those back-to-back tweets from Wright were decisive.

@richarddeitsch You get your most reaction when you talk about him, it’s the same note every time, and now you’ve compared him to a traitor.

— nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch A real traitor. Not metaphorical, a real one. That’s fine if it’s what you want to do. But I can’t abide it. — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch 5- You can call this all corporate shilling, but I promise it isn’t. I have colleagues I absolutely won’t defend… — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@richarddeitsch … I even have a colleague that my pinned tweet is a direct response to. But this has gotten over the top, so here we are. — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

Nick wright twitter communism

@richarddeitsch 6- Now I’m going back to the beach. You’ve got my number if you want to discuss further. Enjoy the twins. Cheers. — nick wright (@getnickwright) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright Incorrect on all. Said his goal is same/content is different. Top traffic’d piece every year is awards piece. No Skip there.

— Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

@getnickwright But this is a circle now. Probably good for the soul to walk away. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) August 1, 2016

In the end, it was a spirited back and forth that ended with something of a truce. There are no truces when it comes to the Twitter Wars scorecard, though.

Wright put Deitsch on the ropes like we’ve never seen anyone able to do before – not Rovell, not Whitlock, not Travis, and certainly not Piers Morgan. From the opening Bell, Deitsch was on the defensive, trying to counter Wright’s furious Twitter barrage. The reigning champ was effective on some occasions, being able to counter about his awards column outpacing his Skip Bayless coverage and quickly dismissing a couple of Wright’s other claims.

Nevertheless, Wright was relentless. He made enough solid points that were hard to find fault with and (unlike some people who step into Twitter Wars) didn’t fight dirty. Wright continually made his case with logic and respect, which always gets an extra boost on the scorecards in a gentlemanly arena such as this. He was even able to prove that he wasn’t just a corporate shill sticking up for his new FS1 colleague because he could point to a pinned tweet which is a thoughtful commentary on Black Lives Matter and Clay Travis.

The winner of this Twitter War, by unanimous decision, is FS1’s Nick Wright. How will the fallen champ Richard Deitsch respond? Stay tuned! If there is a rematch, it promises to be more interesting than if Pacquiao and Mayweather ever step into the ring again.
