I just heard this on ESPN. This makes me laugh, I mean, as the president you'd think when you call someone up and wanna make plans they'll say yes. But sure enough, you get burnt by a 2-year coach...

:)

Moooo

Dedicated to his job.

Really, even if you totally hate president Bush, I can't see how anyone would turn down an offer to have dinner with him.

I think this was a totally uncool move on Saban's part. Whether or not you agree or disagree with the current President's political stance, IT'S THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!

Intelligent people (and from now on, that won't include Saban) throughout history have dined together, regardless of country or idealolgy. That's what makes a society and it's also what makes history.

Saban is the only "asshat" in this scenario, IMO.

He said it was schedule and not a agreement or disagreement of politics.

I think dinner with the Pres has nothing to do with politics. Its not like you're gonna change his mind talking to him.

Agree.

Saban's responsibility is to the team- and with training camp going on now, every day counts. I don't care for Saban, but I would think if I was a head coach starting training camp, I would decline the visit too.

Saban would be the only intelligent one at the table.

Wow, little did I know how true my statement was.

Those who were at dinner:

Bush, Marino, Buoniconti, Mandich (douche), Jim Kick, Andy Garcia, Mario Kreutzberger and their wives.

All geniouses ;)

The only intelligent guests, Saban & Jason Taylor, declined.

The last two people I remember snubbing the president were Greg Wesley and Kawika Mitchell, two years ago. They both went on to have horrible years. Wesley has never really recovered although it's good to see that Kawika rebounded last season.

Exactly. It's probably a once in a lifetime event. So why not clear the schedule and go?

Personally, I wouldn't care who was President. Just a chance to dine with him would be cool enough for me.

I would go just to see DC and the White House, and all that sh!t.

F*ck wasting time to eat with Bush, I wouldn't want to spend 5 seconds with that jackass, no matter what title his little brother helped him steal.

Timing is everything. Bush and his worker bees should know about Football season /TC etc. 3 weeks ago would have been better or pick his Bye Week.

I'd never pass up a chance to sniff coke of Laura Bush's tits in the Oval Office! What was Saban thinking?
