Bobby Hebert reportedly ejected from press box for loudly cheering for LSU
Saturday night’s game between Alabama and LSU was everything it was hyped up to be and more, as Nick Saban’s team further proved that they are the best team in the nation by pulling off a fourth quarter comeback on the road. The game had fans on the edge of their seats, but none more than radio host and notorious LSU supporter Bobby Hebert.
According to Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune, Hebert was ejected from the press box for cheering LSU too enthusiastically.
“An LSU spokesman said Hebert was warned repeatedly that his cheering was creating a disturbance,” Duncan wrote on Twitter Saturday night. “He was removed by security in the (fourth quarter).”
Those of us who are familiar with Hebert’s history are not even a tiny bit surprised by this news. The former Saints and Falcons quarterback is a huge LSU fan. His son, center T. Bob Hebert, played for the Tigers last season. He has a history of acting unprofessionally and not being able to remain objective, as evidenced by this epic rant he went on during Les Miles’ press conference after the BCS National Championship Game last season.
Those who sit in the press box are supposed to make an effort to remain neutral. Some cheering, moaning and groaning is to be expected, but I’m sure Hebert took it to the next level.
