We often hear NFL players say they would never wish injury upon their counterparts, but that doesn’t mean they necessarily feel sympathy when it happens.
Case in point: Reggie Bush.
At least that’s the conclusion we’re drawing after the Miami Dolphins running back’s comments about New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in Sunday’s game.
“It’s like the old saying, what goes around comes around,” Bush said Tuesday, via The Palm Beach Post. “They talked all week about putting hot sauce and this and that, and they ended up losing their best player for the rest of the season.”
Ouch, man. That’s cold.
We can give Bush, who injured his left knee during the game, some leeway for being borderline cruel for two reasons: a) his “hot sauce” reference is about Rex Ryan’s comments leading up to the game; and b) Jets linebacker Calvin Pace said of Bush after the game “we had to put him on out,” which raised questions about a potential bounty.
When you combine those two factors, and the fact that Bush did actually suffer an injury, it’s easy to understand the callous attitude toward Revis. This should motivate the Jets to put hot sauce on Bush when these two division rivals meet again Oct. 28.
