It's not wrong to do something everybody else is doing, IMO. Just look at it this way. Is it legal to add saliva to a baseball before you pitch it?

There are some things in sports that are against the rules, they happen anyway, and they are part of the game although they are illegal. I think this action of faking an injury is something that has been going on just about as long as people have been running the no-huddle. The Giants being so flagrant about it is the only reason this issue is getting press, IMO.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Well I don't think that - this thread at least - is as much about whether or not faking an injury is alright and if the Saints do it.

I think this is more about why Bush felt the need to specifically name the Saints as a team that has a tradition of faking injuries.

After reading some of the comments on the article - one comment struck me as something to consider. It was about how the Saints as a team and as an organization helped Bush get through the Heisman debacle and how it felt such a betrayal that after all that Bush would do something like this.

I remember reading an article where Bush himself talked about how he had gotten great support from his teammates, coaches, and the organization - and how all that support had helped him to deal with the unpleasantness what was the Heisman debacle. And for him to obviously carry a grudge after something like that... makes me think very little of the man, which is sad because after all that has been said and done - I still have very good memories of him in the black & gold.

In regards to Bush betraying the Saints, it probably was intentional. If I were to speculate, which I have a bad habit of doing...I would speculate that Reggie was hurt deeply when the Saints drafted Ingram. His tweet removes much of the speculation.

The Saints have given Reggie way more than he returned, although he did give us our moments, and at least a couple of games that we can point directly to Reggie for. For him to not be able to separate the business from the game and hold a grudge against the Saints...if in fact that is what he is doing...is sad.

He's just speaking the truth. Im sure every team in the league has this plan, but like he said there was never a rule stopping it. I don't see him throwing the Saints under the bus because there will be no retroactive investigations or punishments.

What is funny is the real story that people are totally missing.

The biggest story to this whole debacle is that the Giants are so crappy, poorly coached, stupid...whatever...that they can't even get the "fake injury" play right. Now, for me...that's the real story.

The Giants look like they are in real trouble this year. However, I can't discount them just yet. They looked worse than this after 3 games in '07, the year they won it all.

You just don't do that. You worry about the team you're on and you shut up about your former. Big surprise he is already hurt in Miami.

He's a ****, you're right man, it is about his going out of his way to talk about us.

BTW I'm loving your avatar.
