    Re: Reuben Fosters Dad arrested

    I wonder if the TV announcers will treat this like they treated Ingram's dad, bringing it up in almost every game. The kid has had a hard enough time. I hope they concentrate on his game and not on his dad being in jail. That always made me mad when they would bring up Ingram's dad.

    Re: Reuben Fosters Dad arrested

    Th elder Ingram is a public figure in his own right. Not as famous a running back as Emmit Smith, but many football fans had probably at least heard of him, so mentioning his troubles was somewhat newsworthy.We'll see how the foster saga plays out in the media, hopefully if foster does want wish to discuss it, the media will respect his wishes, including football announcers.

    Let's be honest, Verne will have a hard enough time keeping Reuben and Robert Foster straight. I am sure Robert will make some great tackles and Robert's dad will be brought up from time to time. When I saw Reuben's LOI come across and we already had Robert's I immediately thought of Verne and the problems this will cause him. You add this type of story to the issue of names and Verne will get fried on this board.

    Actually Cecil had a tweet on this almost as soon as Reuben signed. He predicted that Verne would bring it up on Robert Foster's first reception. It'll probably be to the effect it's being amazing that he still run that fast after being shot at such a young age...

    Just imagine if Reuben and Robert are on special teams together. No telling which one would actually make the tackle.

    Reuben Roberts, perhaps, or Randy Foster.

    Re: Ruben Fosters Dad arrested

    I was thinking more of the fact that he was a small child that came very close to dying at the hands of his own father. There must be a greater plan for this young man for him to still be on earth. I am hoping that his time in Tuscaloosa is a great stepping stone to finding and fulfilling that purpose. Amazing!
