Bettis book: He ‘faked’ injury to avoid getting cut – NFL

Say it ain’t so, Bus!   

just faking that the injury happened on that short-yardage play. I had to fool the coaches and the team’s medical department into thinking the injury had occurred on that play. Otherwise, the Steelers would have had their reason to cut me and my salary.”

Business is business, I suppose, and his claim that the original injury occurred while playing for the Steelers does mitigate slightly.   But boy does it read as unseemly.

The thing I don’t get is why he’d disclose this.  He’ll sell a book, but it impacts his celebrity and announcer value.  And it sounds just awful–beneath him.  Not BUS-worthy.

    No faking his massive steroid doping however.

    No dope, no job, no Super Bowl.

    Think of Jerome’s medical waste sharps buckets.

    That’s a big waste disposal job.
