Saints running back Reggie Bush has been a hot topic of debate over revent weeks after he made the remark in his twitter page “It’s been fun New Orleans” after the teams selection of Alabama running back Mark Ingram in the first round of the 2011 draft.
Sean Payton and Drew Brees both have gone on record stating they want and expect Bush to back with the Saints next season, and by all accounts he should return once he and the Saints can reach a new agreement to adjust his 2011 salary figure.
Bush so far though has yet to make an appearence at the teams “involountary” workouts that were organized and paid for Brees himself at Tulane Stadium.
Today Bush made multiple comments once again through his twitter account regarding the lockout saying “Everybody complaining about the lockout! Shoot I’m making the most of it! Vacation, rest, relaxing, appearances here and there! I’m good!
He followed that comment up with “Right about now we would be slaving in 100 degree heat, practicing twice a day, while putting our bodies at risk for nothing.”, which really put the Who Dat nation up in arms.
Commonly hard work in football is considered to make the player better at the sport and the team better in general, and his comment that practicing and putting his body at risk for “nothing” resonated in a negative way with fans.
Afterward, as his comment began to circle the Internet, Bush followed up with one last tweet to say “FYI last tweet was a joke! Relax people damn it’s called sense of humor! Cry me a river why don’t you…”.
He has every right in the world to speak his mind but fans seems to be taking it the wrong way in general. Certainly practice is not fun, especially in the New Orleans heat and humdity, but where is the drive to be great? His comments only lend credibality to the rumor he is done as a Saint, only time will truly tell.
