A USFL Team Cut A Player For Asking For Pizza

Not a ton of people know this, but the USFL kicked off its new season this past weekend, but nobody's talking about the games. Instead, they're talking about pizza and chicken salad. Why would they do something like that? Here's why: Former Michigan State running back De'Veon Smith was FIRED by his team for disagreeing with the team's meal choice. Apparently, Smith was offered chicken salad by a staffer, but he didn't want it. He asked if he could have a slice of their pizza instead. The guy who'd served him said no, and asked if that would be a problem. Smith said YES, then walked away. And that was enough to get him bounced. In the video released by the USFL, his coach explains that Smith violated a team rule against disrespecting, quote, "football or members, staff, USFL, hotel, etc."It also shows Kirby telling Smith he's fired . . . and basically refusing to let Smith tell his side of the story. The online consensus seems to be that this is a pretty ridiculous reason to fire someone, and it's bizarre that the USFL would think that this video is a good look for the league.
