The Buffalo Bills season has already gotten off to a troublesome start and the team has yet to even play a snap.
According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, sophomore coach Doug Marrone and director of player personnel Jim Monos were recently involved in an on-field shouting match, before general manager Doug Whaley stepped in to try and break it up.
Whaley’s attempts were unsuccessful resulting in acting owner and team president Russ Brandon also getting involved and putting an end to it.
La Canfora’s sources say they heard the words “go ahead and fire me” used during the altercation, although it is not clear who said them.
The team is currently for sale after the death of owner Ralph Wilson in March.
The Bills went 1-4 in pre-season play and had a record of 6-10 in the 2013 regular season.
Buffalo starts their 2014 regular season on Sunday afternoon on the road against the Chicago Bears.
