With humorous t-shirts, the Giants mock Tommy Pham’s fantasy football quarrel
Players on the San Francisco Giants wore t-shirts that made fun of Tommy Pham’s fight with Joc Pederson over fantasy football.
Tommy Pham smacking Joc Pederson across the face over fantasy football beef prior to a San Francisco Giants-Cincinnati Reds game has to be the leading contender for the most strange sports story of 2022. Pham accused Pederson of cheating by keeping San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson on the injured reserve list.
Pham was still being pursued by the Giants weeks later. Some players were seen wearing t-shirts that said “Fantasy Football 101: Stashing Players on the IR Isn’t Cheating” before San Francisco’s game versus the Kansas City Royals.

If you are wondering where the team got their jerseys, they were made by a clothing company called Rotowear.
With the passage of time, the story between Pham and Pederson becomes more complicated. Pham was irritated by Pederson’s discussion of Wilson being placed on injured reserve.
In their fantasy football group conversation, Pham claimed that Pederson disparaged him and the San Diego Padres, his team in 2021.
The Giants’ outfielder joked about the Padres in comparison to the Dodgers and Giants in a GIF that he shared in the chat. Pederson expressed regret.
Oh, and then there was Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels, who was the commissioner of the fantasy football league in question.
After slapping Pederson across the face, Pham was suspended for three games.
If you’re wondering if Pham’s feud with the Giants is finished, the answer looks to be no.
