THE PESSIMIST: “King of Turds” ReturnsSeptember 17th, 2008
Well, everyone’s favorite tight end is back with the Bucs. That means a good guy who clearly had a lot of fans in the area is gone, Ben Troupe.
Jerramy Stevens, who last year was revealed to have a less than angelic past while attending the University of Washington, is back on the roster after serving a two-game suspension for “extreme DUI.” Imagine?
Stevens is such a man of high moral honor, he was awarded with the prestigious ProFootballTalk.com’s all-time All-Turd team.
“This guy was the King of the Turds even before his antics at the University of Washington were chronicled by the Seattle Times. And yet he somehow still has a job in the league.”
This distresses Joe a great deal. It’s not like the Bucs are in desperate need of a backup tight end. So why put such a scumbag back on the roster. Or do the Glazer Boys not care to sell tickets or gear to women? Seems as though the Bucs are pushing tickets. So why alienate half of your market with this piece of human debris?
While Joe is not a Gators fan, he marveled at Troupe in college. The former first round pick of Tennessee, Troupe was a steal as a backup Joe thought. Certainly better than the “King of Turds.”
