George R.R. Martin hates the Darrelle Revis trade

The Game of Thrones writer talks Darrelle Revis.


The writer of Game of Thrones is not a happy camper. Not because of his show, which is absolutely awesome and still following the books relatively close. Nope. He's angry at the New York Jets for trading their best player to the Bucs. George R.R. Martin had some bad things (h/t KSK) to say about the Jets.

But the Jets did not get a Herschel Walker deal. Revis is going to Tampa Bay. In return, the Jets get Tampa's first round draft choice this year (#13 overall, not even a top ten pick) and a conditional fourth round pick next year. Yeah, NEXT YEAR. Yeah, I said FOURTH round. Maybe it becomes a third. Whoop-de-doo.

The Jets, in short, got rooked. Congrats, Tampa Bay GM, you drank our milkshake.

Hear that, Mark Dominik? George R.R. Martin thinks you drank John Idzik's milkshake. Put that in the press clippings.

Now, please George. Don't stop writing those books just because the Jets suck. They've sucked for almost as long as you've been writing. You can handle it!

And if you can't, we'll welcome you as a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan!
