Coulter sparks twitter row over seat in Delta Airlines
And Delta , unbelievably enough, took to Twitter to snark back. - Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter ) July 16, 2017Great article. Coulter was forced to give up additional leg room on a flight, by having her seat changed, according to the Daily Mail.

He has been associated with 16 playoff teams in his National Football League career. But Carolina slipped to 6-10 previous year after a tumultuous offseason that saw Gettleman rescind cornerback Josh Norman's franchise tag after negotiations turned sour.

The Bills hired Brandon Beane as their new general manager this past May. Among them: cutting star wideout Steve Smith before the 2014 season and running back DeAngelo Williams in 2015, then allowing cornerback Josh Norman to become a free agent in 2016 after rescinding the franchise tag. The 29-year-old eventually signed a five-year, $75-million deal with Washington. Williams was straight-forward on Twitter with how he feels about Gettleman as he called him a "snake".

Gettleman is the second NFL GM fired in less than a month.

Gettleman helped Carolina make the playoffs in three of his four years with the team, including a 15-1 record in 2015 and 12-4 in 2013. Kansas City fired John Dorsey on June 23.
