Russ Smith is NOT happy with Fed Ex…

Louisville Card Russ Smith is NOT happy with Fed Ex, and honestly– for good reason. Fed Ex apparently broke some things of Smith’s, and then threw away his national championship jersey. Smith is clearly upset with Fed Ex, as you can see by the series of Tweets shown below:


Even Smith’s former teammate Peyton Siva jumped in on the action…

 

The conclusion?

 

In other news, last week on Twitter Chane Behanan was selling his Louisville game shorts to the highest bidder. Not kidding. My how the mighty have fallen.

    Local company (UPS) not good enough for him?

    I thought Emery was the Louisville contact.

      Way to go you certainly hit 2 nails right on the head!

    As a retired letter carrier, may I suggest the USPS in the future?

    I gotta feel for him there. Leave it to someone like FedEx to do this too.

    Russ will end up making more money from FedEx then he would in the NBA.

    I seriously doubt if it was thrown away. I worked for UPS for 8 years. They don’t throw away things. Either it was stolen when the package came open or they put it in the “over goods” dept. Each center sends open items to a regional lost goods location. It could take a couple of days to do a search of the stops on the way to the destination. If you don’t buy insurance they will only pay you up to $100 for your loss.

      I’m waffling between this is a somewhat intriguing story and your position that I don’t come here for Louisville Cardinal updates. It is nauseating and unbelievably that is somehow completely lost on Jones, et al, who feel compelled to make us Lil brother. It’s bizarre.

    Personally I find buying game worn jerseys pretty creepy but shorts? That’s downright disturbing. Just plain frigged up.

    Who is Russ Smith and why do we care what allegedly happens at FEDEX?

    Louisville sucks. Most of their guys are thugs and jerks. Russ isn’t one of them. I feel bad for him!

    Don’t hate on Russ. He was a class player and teammate. Not the usual Louisville trash players

      Prove it. List his classy accomplishments.Do it. Ya can’t.

      How about visiting UK’s locker room after the defeat to say congratulations? Good sportsman = classy in my book.

      10:18 pm May 10, 2014 Permalink

      he was team captain. They all do that. Classy? Lil bit, but also expected and mandatory. I’f i’d thrown up a selfish brick with a teammate open to lose the game and then missed a dunk post-buzzer, I’d be visiting some locker rooms too – to take the heat off me.

      Now, please continue the long list of classy things he’s done. I’m dying to know.

      I hit on Russ Smith at a bar once and he turned me down because he prefers women. I can’t believe the love of my life turned me down!

      Zomg, copying someone’s name. That is SO original! Did you mom help you come up with that idea? Still waiting for that list of classy Russ acts, feats, and accomplishments btw.

      “he was team captain. They all do that.” Wrong.

      If you don’t think how Russ Smith carried himself after finishing his career with a loss to a rival exemplifies class, then there’s no use in anyone trying to explain it to you.

      This is coming from a diehard UK fan. I would dare say Russ Smith has more class than a loser who uses the alias “Russ-Tarded”. Get a life dude.

      How about we just put it this way….

      I this was Anthony Davis, Terrence JonesMKG, Lamb, et al…..BBN Would be calling for Gov. Brashear to ban Fed Ex in the Commonwealth, have over 500+ comments on KSR, and thousands of couch burnings at Fed Ex hubs around the Nation. And Coach Cal would just facepalm and comment “That BBN is crazy.”

    Funny that he’s more upset with fedex than he is with Rick for holding him back another year and hurting his draft stock.

      Could you please comment on Russ a little more. You’ve posted about him like 20 times. Y’all should get a room.

    I don’t blame him one bit for being pissed. It was a memory from a special time in his life. FedEx should change their name to FedUp, as pitiful as their freight service is. Our company has pulled big bucks from them in freight and went with other carriers because of damaged shipments.

    I used to work for FedEx. Let me tell you all something. I wouldn’t be surprised with anything when it comes to that company. It is terribly managed all the way to the very top. Employee relations is terrible, they don’t care about customers or employees ONLY bottom line. Never ship anything with them.

      12:31 am May 11, 2014 Permalink

      John? That you bro? The company still needs the Swingline Stapler you stole from the supply closet and Hector the Janitor still wants to press on with his sexual harassment suit against you. you’d better lay low for awhile longer bro.



  24. Russ Smith should have watched the youtube Fedex vids.

    Would have gone with UPS instead.

    Who paid for a $600 frame? Why did he send it to Fed Ex because of the frame being broke? Do they repair picture frames? Why would you not have it repaired yourself and get reinbursed from Fed Ex?

    For whatever good it will do — and with the BBN involved that might be a lot — here’s the link to the complaint form at FedEx:

      Are you expecting BBN to complain to Fed Ex because they lost a UL players shirt?

    I would be careful judging players at other schools selling their stuff. I collect Kentucky stuff (sort of) and I see stuff frequently on eBay that obviously came from a football or basketball player. Just saying this goes on a lot.

    Why would a Louisville hero use FED EX when Louisville is a UPS city? That’s the root of the problem.
