Chris Thompson's comments on the poor attendance at the Redskins' home opener Sunday not only sparked intense Twitter debate, but launched a civil war at 106.7 The Fan on Tuesday.
I hate this headline honestly. Read the article. I won’t get into a Twitter war but if you think I would just “call out”/bash the fans then you clearly don’t know me and it’s a shot at me as a person. https://t.co/uXLdNhF50Z— Chris Thompson (@ChrisThompson_4) September 17, 2018
Redskins Twitter soon exploded, many coming to Thompson's defense at the perceived slight, criticizing Blue Shorts and the station. Others went after Thompson and the Redskins for not playing better.
@ChrisThompson_4 was the only player to stay late for autographs the day we went to training camp. He's the last person to be putting in a bad position on this. Shame on you @1067theFan pic.twitter.com/pirwSA7v9Z— Doggy Tony (@DoggyTony) September 17, 2018
I’m guessing fans know you and know you wouldn’t do anything like that. I guess it’s a lesson learned not to give another second of your time to @1067theFan— Nole Chick (@nolechick94) September 18, 2018
Fans don't enjoy booing either @ChrisThompson_4. We know your level of effort never deserves a "boo", but you have to admit, yesterday was bad. If I'd spent a weeks pay to go the season opener & witnessed that game in person, I can't say I wouldn't have been booing too.— C. W. Barr (@RCRedskins) September 17, 2018
@ChrisThompson_4 I didn't like the empty seats either or the booing. But when you travel 2+ hrs driving to and 3+ hrs driving home and spend the money we do for tix & parking (9yr tix holder here) WE DESERVE BETTER THAN WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY!— Alex Vaughan (@MrFUBAR442) September 17, 2018
The anti-Shorts multitude included Chad Dukes vs. The World producer Landfill, who announced on air he sided with Thompson.

It quickly turned into an all-out brawl of words, neither Shorts or Landfill holding back their fury.

Here's just one of the several heated exchanges:
@chaddukes Blue shorts is in the right, fatfill is wrong, Blue shorts is also a swinging dick in Clarendon— V (@Drowknowsbest) September 18, 2018
However, all agreed the segment was some incredible, can't miss radio.September 18, 2018 September 18, 2018
@chaddukes Blue Shorts, Landfill were killing me today, although Shorts may have been right, when you lose it you lose. But Dukes, Shorts, Fill, fantastic show!— Anthony Roh (@anthonyroh) September 18, 2018
