Earlier on Wednesday afternoon, SEC Network's Paul Finebaum conveyed on live television and again later on his radio show that Alabama head coach Nick Saban thinks his players Cam Robinson and Hootie Jones were arrested by officers who were "disgruntled LSU fans."

"He indicated that the police were LSU fans, yeah," Finebaum said. "I think that’s accurate." (The Advocate)

Within earshot of media, Saban launched into a four-letter tirade directed at Finebaum. In it, he used his fingers to note the small amount of marijuana found in the car and insinuated the arresting officers were disgruntled LSU fans. (AL.com)
Glenn Guilbeau with The Advertiser was able to contact Monroe Police public information officer Chris Bates who "laughed at the idea" that the players were arrested because of what college they played for.
quote:

Monroe Police public information officer Chris Bates laughed at the idea that the officers had football on their mind during the arrests of Robinson and Jones.

“I can tell you for a fact that the first officer on the scene is not an LSU fan,” Bates said Wednesday afternoon. “He hates LSU. He doesn’t like the color yellow or purple and gold. In fact, he’s a Florida fan. If you mention LSU around him, he throws up in his mouth. Most of our officers are LSU fans, but we have some who are Arkansas fans and Georgia fans and Alabama fans. And I'll tell you this, the first officer did not even know those guys were players.”

He sounds like an idiot. They had an illegal substance on them but hey it was just a little bit. That plus a gun is not a small ordeal and them getting off without charges is ridiculous. Had it been me or any regular person it would've stuck. He really just needs to shut the hell up.

The Monroe DA needs to be "processed"

Still begs the question why weren't all 4 individuals in the car arrested? All occupants should have been charged. Just curious.

Even though he was coaching the Turds, I still liked Saban because I have always credited him with showing how LSU was a sleeping giant. Now, however, I have lost ALL respect for this man! He is now showing his players that him and they are above the law! He needs to be stopped!

Claiming the arresting officers were LSU fans was one of the bitchiest bitch moves that little bitch could have done.

Maybe he should stay out of Monroe?

Saban is a great coach but is acting like a punk trying to handle this situation. He needs a PR person to counsel him through this.

Saban, while possibly the greatest CFB coach ever, comes off as a whiny baby in this issue. He gets a pass in my book bc of what he's done, none the less, doesn't look good on him.
