Dolphins Yeremiah Bell on Reggie Bush: “He Stinks”; Bush Responds “I do stink”
The Dolphins season is over.
The coach is about to be fired, they are responsible for Tebow mania and now they are trading insults like they are valley girls in High School.
It started with Reggie Bush saying the team “stinks” and his teammate Yeremiah Bell responded to that.
“He stinks,” Bell said emphatically after being asked what he thought of the comments by Bush. “That shouldn’t be said around this locker room. We know that we’re 0-6 and we’re not playing the best but at the same time there’s no need for that.”
The man makes a point, but the damage has been done. Thermidor writes that Bush’s remarks have divided the locker room.
“I just think he said it because he was mad like everybody else was,” McDaniel said. “But I would’ve never said anything like that.”
I have concluded that everyone is right.
Because everyone on the Dolphins is terrible.

Today, Bush was given the chance to back down from his original comments when asked about Bell’s comments by 790 The Ticket’s Josh Friedman in the locker room. What he did was take the chance to reinforce his comments.
“I still stand by it,” Bush said, “because there’s nothing fun about being 0-6. There’s no room for sensitivity in this league. This is a man’s game and we all signed on the dotted line.”
“I do stink,” he said. “We all stink. When it comes to 0-6, everybody stinks. We’ve all, in some way, shape or form have not been good enough, and that’s what I meant with those comments. I don’t care if it’s the front-desk secretary — she ain’t doing a good enough job. Everybody’s in this thing together.”
I think its refreshing that an athlete who has stunk up the joint stands up and defends himself. It would have been easy to play up the “heat of the moment, i was frustrated angle” but he stood up and took his lumps like a man.
My question is, why did he have to take a swipe at the poor front-desk secretary? Did she sleep with Kris Humphries or something?
