Auburn Football Player Arrests: Two Warring Fanbases React

In the wake of the arrests of four Auburn football players for an armed home invasion robbery, we're turning to the two fanbases who'll have the most to say about it for comment. Our Auburn community, Track 'Em Tigers, is in lockstep with across-the-board disappointment and disgust:

This doesn't look good for these players. I'm sure their dismissal from the team will be complete by the end of the day. What could they have been thinking so close to the start of spring practice?

(For our part, we would argue that there's never a good time to commit felonies with one's teammates, but yes, before the start of spring practice is an inopportune moment.)

Over at the Alabama community, Roll Bama Roll, is more relieved to be out of the spotlight than inclined to crow, and they've got history to thank for that:

One way or the other, to those who feel the inclination to do so, I'd suggest no one gloat over this one. Remember back in 2008 when we were all pointing at laughing at the string of arrests in Knoxville? Um, yeah, I'm pretty sure one of those days we were laughing was the same day Jimmy Johns was selling blow in the parking lot a mere 150 feet from the Alabama coaches' offices. In other words, just enjoy the offseason popcorn and be glad it's not us.

Popcorn we've got, and popcorn we shall have: This case isn't going away, ever. Break out the buttery topping of your choice and stay tuned to this StoryStream for further developments.
