Arizona Cardinals star J.J. Watt had some issues with tight end Zach Ertz on Friday in the locker room.

Watt told a story about how Ertz said he was going to bring in donuts and asked the big man what he wanted.

“I am a big fan of the pink frosted, I think it’s strawberry, and maple glazed,” Watt told the camera. “He goes, ‘Cool, I will pick them up in the morning.'”

“He shows up with a boxful of donuts, no strawberry glazed, no maple glazed. I am extremely grateful for the free donuts, but do I have any ground to stand on to be upset?”

Watt raises a fair question. Someone says they’re going to get you food, you are most likely expecting that food. Yes food is food but maybe Watt had built up his hopes a little too high.

Ertz had a quick and easy response when the camera panned over to him.

“No,” the tight end exclaimed.

Whose side are you on in “Donutgate?”
