Fitz speaks about brother’s tweets

Posted by Darren Urban on September 23, 2009 – 1:52 pm

Larry Fitzgerald was good speaking just now when he met with the media for the first time since his brother’s now infamous Twitter tweets from this weekend. He made clear Kurt Warner is his best friend on the team, so he certainly doesn’t have the same feelings his brother did — at least on Sunday — when Marcus Fitzgerald called Kurt old.

Marcus, in fact, will have to volunteer at one of Kurt’s camps. “I told Kurt today, Marcus is now going to be one of his volunteers at his camp this year,” Fitzgerald said. “He’s going to be taking out the garbage or whatever Kurt needs.”

Chuckling when he was asked if he gave his bother a “thumping” after this whole thing, Fitzgerald said, “My brother, he does what he wants to do.”

Warner did say he gave grief to Fitz about the issue. There was talk about getting the ball to Fitz (I’ll have more later on the homepage), but Fitz said “I know if I am open, Kurt will find me and if I’m not, he’ll find someone else to move the chains.”

As for the whole Twitter thing, Fitzgerald chuckled again. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” he said. He also said he wasn’t frustrated for getting dragged into something. “I don’t think my brother did in intentionally,” Fitzgerald said. “He’s young. Everybody makes mistakes. Unfortunately I have to take it on the chin. But I still love him.”

UPDATE: Marcus Fitzgerald apologized on his Twitter page:  “what people dont get is that im the biggest larry supporter out there, I just wanted him 2b more involved. but my mistake was putting on a public forum that I wanted him more involved. but I said silly stuff bout kurt which wasnt right. esp cuz he is a great family friend of ours. I cant get the stuff out my head.I messed up & ive been raised better than 2 do that ya kno.”
