Reggie Really Is A Selfish Asshole

Not my headline.

It's from the guys at ProFootball.com, who continue to do yoemans work on everything Reggie Bush.  I don't want to dwell on Mr. 619, but I thought this was amusing:

With apologies to everyone out there who has lined up to nuzzle the crotch of the 2005 Heisman* winner, we've decided after careful consideration that, in our opinion, Reggie Bush is a selfish asshole.

And our decision in this regard was not influenced significantly by the storm of controversy regarding whether and to what extent Bush and his family got paid while Bush was still playing for USC....

No, we reached our final opinion regarding Reggie only recently, when we were reminded by a reader that the number he so desperately wants to wear at the pro level, No. 5, is already spoken for on the team that drafted him.

Quarterback Adrian McPherson, drafted by the Saints in 2005 because (as we hear it) he reminded the organization of Vince Young, currently is assigned No. 5.  But there has been not a peep from the Bush camp reflecting a scintilla of respect for the fact that someone else holds the rights to the number that Reggie wants.

Hell, there's likewise been no comment from Team Bush regarding the fact that his fallback choice -- No. 25 -- is the property of Fred McCrary.

So if wearing No. 5 or (if that fails) No. 25 is such a big deal for Bush, why doesn't Bush think it might be a big deal for the guys who already wear those numbers?

Folks, whether you like or dislike Reggie Bush, his current mentality falls within the four corners of the textbook definition of selfish.

Per Webster.com, "selfish" means "seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others."

Without regard for others.

So it's a no-brainer.  By showing zero regard for the fact that McPherson owns No. 5 and McAfee owns No. 25, Bush is selfish.
...
And as to McPherson, we're making an open offer to negotiate on his behalf -- at no charge -- the transaction with Bush for the rights to No. 5, assuming that the NFL changes its rules regarding jersey numbering....  

So how much should McPherson request for No. 5?  Just enough to get Bush to accuse him of being selfish.

Indeed. Also, as I suspected, there is no cooperation forthcoming from the Bush camp in connection with the Housegate scandal- they've refused to be interviewed by Pac-10 and NCAA investigators.

Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and his parents have declined to be interviewed by NCAA and Pac-10 officials investigating their relationship with a fledgling sports marketing agency, according to an attorney involved in the case.

Big surprise there.  It's too bad that a guy with such obvious physical talent has to go and reveal himself as such a prick.
