"I don't even know how you respond to that other than laugh," Norman replied, via the Washington Post. "I don't know what you get out of that. I don't know, man. There's a time when people who honor themselves will fall short, so when that day comes, we'll just see."
Norman's amusement and subtle jab about Beckham's penchant for self-promotion came in response to the following quote from the Giants wide receiver:
"It goes back to what I was saying. If I wasn't playing him twice a year, maybe people wouldn't bring it up as much. But now it'll be a lot more media attention for him, attention that I don't really look for, attention that I don't need. The reason that he's become so relevant is because of me."
Fortunately for Norman and Beckham, there's no penalty for unsportsmanlike rhetoric.
