Casserly player hating on Bush

CASSERLY THINKS BUSH WASN'T TRUTHFUL

A league source tells us that former Texans G.M. Charley Casserly believes running back Reggie Bush was not truthful in a pre-draft interview with Casserly and Texans owner Bob McNair regarding reports that Bush and/or his family received benefits in violation of NCAA rules during his career at USC.

The source contacted us on this point in specific response to our recent suggestion that Casserly wanted to select Bush with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, even after McNair and coach Gary Kubiak had decided to focus on Mario Williams.

Per the source, Casserly and McNair both concluded after interviewing Bush regarding the reports that they did not believe him. Thus, they decided that they didn't want Bush to be the face of the franchise moving forward.

We're also told that Casserly, a member of the competition committee prior to his official Wednesday resignation, had been arguing vehemently against allowing Bush to wear No. 5 as a member of the Saints, and that Casserly's position was influenced by the belief that Bush had not been truthful -- and by his opinion that the situation surrounding Bush embarrassed the league in the days leading up to the draft.

Funny thing is that Casserly might be headed to the NFL front office...

Casserly can KISS MY GRITS !!! Hopefully the decision is made on Bush's jersey number before Casserly can influence the decision in any way. Casserly will go down in NFL Draft history as making one of the Biggest Bonehead moves ever. Of course we are so eternally grateful. GEAUX Saints !!!

RE: Casserly player hating on Bush

A local rock radio station does an afternoon talk show in the Monroe area and cover a variety of topics. One of the guys is a Texans fan and the other is a Saints fan. The two were discussing Casserly today on the show and I was laughing my nads off. They were saying that Casserly probably knew he was about to be canned and decided bend the Texans over by drafting Williams instead of Bush. You would have had to heard the entire bit to get the full effect, but the Texans fan was disgusted and the Saints fan was ecstatic. Seems to me there is a trend with this.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.
