Packers maintenance employee fired after talking trash to Mike McCarthy
Wood says that he said "get the boys ready to kick some butt this weekend." Clearly, he said something a little different... or at the very least, McCarthy thought he said something else.
When asked about it, McCarthy said "it's not the worst thing that's been said, but I would not say it to a fellow employee." Some people believe that he said "don't lay an egg this weekend".
Either way... was it really that bad of an offense? Especially for a guy who had worked for the team for 22 years? If anything McCarthy probably needed a little goading.
