By now, you’re aware of yesterday’s Saban-Finebaum fracas, which arose over PAWWWLLL’s questioning of the Sabanator’s choice of discipline regarding the two Alabama players who were arrested but ultimately not charged with criminal behavior in Monroe, Louisiana. Part and parcel of Saban’s heated defense of his actions — or, in this case, lack of action — was a certain perceived bias on the part of the arresting officers.
Finebaum told reporters after two heated exchanges with Saban, “He said the police officers were LSU fans.”
This led to one of those only-in-America moments when the Monroe police department rose to the defense of its men in blue in the only way imaginable.
“I can tell you for a fact that the first officer on the scene is not an LSU fan,” Chris Bates, the Monroe Police PIO, said Wednesday. “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…”
LMAO. That should put Saban in his place.
