The Bush Number Issue

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Yes, I hope he gets it. But the emphasis is the excitement and anticipation he is bringing. Like Michael Vick in advance, 5, 20, whatever....

I hope he gets it. It's kinda' like Michael Jordan....the number is synonymous with the man. Reggie Bush is #5!

Therefore he is saying that he thinks its a good thing if Bush changes the number for the attention the franchise would get by it, however if it doesnt happen its going to be great seeing Saints jerseys all across the country.Sometimes, if you just take a breath and read the things people post instead of quickly assuming you know more than everyone else and calling them out lots of unintelligent commentary is kept to one's self.
Um, that's not taking a side, which he just did though. Thanks for your lack of help. Appreciate it. Night night.

In some bizarro world, where "correct" means "couldn't possibly be more wrong," sure, I agree to that.

Hey Kelly....just realized that I suggested he go as a WR to get the number 5. I knew that WRs couldn't do that...just had a brainfart.

I can see the value of the system for the lineplay stuff and helping officials...they certainly need all the help they can get.

But with a RB, it shouldn't be that big of an issue.

I'm on the fence on this one...hoping that it is not a primadonna move but also that he get to wear five. It would just be nice from a marketing standpoint...and I have taken a keen interest in the Saints marketing as we hope to keep our team.

I will say as little as I care for Edge...it would be unfair to let one guy do this after you recently kept another guy from doing it. I'm for fairness and consistency, but I'm a Saints fan so to hell with everyone else...
