"Bryant Gumbel has fallen in recent times,'' Smith told SI.com on Tuesday. "He's desperate to have a respected, national voice again, but the problem is a lot of people aren't listening anymore. So you've got to say something like that to get attention for yourself. But he's misinformed." - former NFL running back Robert Smith
Former NFL runningback, and current NFLPA card committee member, Robert Smith slapped back at B-Gum. Glad to see that some others recognize that B-Gum is simply trying hard to get back on the radar by postulating opinions without any real information on the matters at hand. It might be a better tactic for B-Gum to just jump up and down at the end of his show yelling "Look at me, look at me. I'm still here", instead of opening mouth and inserting foot as he has been wont to do.
Of course, there is always another side to the coin. Could be B-Gum be working hard to get attention for his new gig? Get some extra talk going for the NFL Network? Yeah, that would be out there.....but we have seen stranger things, haven't we?
