Nick Saban is a terrible human being

Everybody knows that Nick Saban has no loyalties except to money and has jumped around from team to team more often than the painted ladies by the docks jump from sailor to sailor. However, Saban also doesn’t care about his players, either! When he was coach of the Miami Dolphins, one of his players, Jeno James, began having a seizure. And what did good ol’ Saint Nick do? Attend to the young man? Call for help? No, sir. He just stepped over him and kept on walking. What a piece of shit!

Don’t just take my word for it, either. Here’s the account according to Heath Evans:

Well, the first day of two-a-days. We had about a three-hour-plus practice in the morning in that south Florida sun. You guys know what it’s like down there in late July, early August. And then that night we had another practice under the lights, if I recall I think it was about from 6 to 9.

Jeno James, our best offensive lineman at the time, comes in and collapses after practice, uh, vomiting all kinds of stuff that would make a billygoat puke, eyes rolled in the back of his head. Myself, about four other lineman are trying to carry him from the locker room, to the training room.

Obviously it’s a moment of panic, everyone, you know, we don’t know if this guy’s, you know, gonna die, I mean, the whole deal. But he’s so big and sweaty and heavy that we actually have to set him down in the hallway between the locker room and the training room.

Nick Saban literally just starts walking in, steps over Jeno James convulsing, doesn’t say a word, doesn’t try to help, goes upstairs, I don’t know what he does. But then obviously they get Jeno ‘trauma-offed’ to the hospital.

Saban calls a team meeting about 10:30 that night, comes down and says, ‘You know, the captain of the ship can never show fear or indecision, we’ve always gotta have an answer, and so I had to go upstairs, that’s why I walked over Geno like that, I had to collect my thoughts and decide what’s best for our team.’

And I’m thinking to myself, I think along with Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas and Yeremiah Bell and all these other guys going, ‘Did he, does he really believe what he’s just saying?’ He showed no human emotion for one of his best players.

Is this who you want taking care of your sons, Alabama? I didn’t think so, either. Fire this asshole!
