Ryan Fitzpatrick made the bold decision to appear on “The Dan Le Batard Show” and was inevitably asked ridiculous questions by Le Batard, Stugotz, and seven other “co-hosts” of the show. When the dumb question came up, the former NFL quarterback didn’t appreciate it.
When Le Batard and his gang aren’t talking about wake-up politics, how racist the country is, or ambushing Michelle Tafoya because she enjoys free speech, they sometimes visit former athletes on the show. Welcome.

It’s safe to say that Fitzpatrick won’t be back in its airwaves anytime soon.
To paint the picture here we have to go back to the 2021 NFL season. Fitzpatrick signed a one-year deal with the Washington Commanders, but suffered a season-ending hip injury in Week 1.
After the injury, a local radio listener called 1067 Fan And reportedly Fitzpatrick didn’t hurt his hip while playing football, but actually did get hurt from going down a water slide before the season started.
For a random person calling on a radio show, the story received strong national attention, relatively speaking.

It turns out that Stugotz, whose real name is John Weiner, didn’t forget about the water slide story. After some verbal remarks, Stugotz asked: “Did your career end at a waterfall?”
Fitzpatrick explained that the story was false before becoming disillusioned with the Le Batard clan.
“I think you already knew the answer to that question,” Fitzpatrick said. “I know it’s funny and mild, but you give some more breath to the rumor, it’s silly and it never happened.”
Things took a turn for the worse when Le Batard – the older man dressed as WWE star Kane – asked Fitzpatrick how he swung down a water slide.
hard hitting journalist @stugotz790 Ryan Fitzpatrick about the rumor that came from a Washington, D.C. sports radio caller who alleged that Fitzpatrick injured his hip on a waterslide…and immediately angered him. Oh no.

Fitzpatrick asked to “move on to something else”, the exact response Le Batard and others wanted.
The worst part of the entire segment is that even after laughing at Fitzpatrick, they continue to talk about him while he’s still in line.
How dare Fitzpatrick stand before Le Batard and his teammates.
