" Cardinals coach Bruce Arians going off about someone parking in his spot is pure television magic. pic.twitter.com/NILzjNZr9w — Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) July 9, 2016 "
The video above, which contains explicit language, is from the series Amazon series “All or Nothing,” which documents the Arizona Cardinals (I haven’t seen it yet, but the Internet streets are raving about it).
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians does not like it when his parking spot is occupied. After the rant above, a practice squad defensive end named Lawrence Okoye was running late, tempted fate, and found himself out of the job.
Here’s what happened next, via USA Today’s Card Wire:
"“Parked in the wrong spot,” Arians told general manager Steve Keim and team president Michael Bidwill. “There weren’t any parking places so he just parked and came running in. Tough (expletive), bro.” Okoye was a former Olympian and Arians said “probably ought to go to Oxford,” as he is a talented and intelligent young man. But Bidwill notes, “you’ve got to follow the rules.”"
Now, it’s not as though Arians would cut Carson Palmer or Larry Fitzgerald over this (that they probably would not have the gumption to park in the coach’s spot is another matter), but it does go to show that a man’s got to have a code.
