Alabama mayor resigns after calling out Nick Saban, Crimson Tide for posting powerful video message
Carbon Hill Mayor Mark Chambers no longer has a job after calling out Nick Saban and the Alabama football program on social media.
The Crimson Tide recently issued a video message of unity and positivity featuring Saban and several of his Alabama football players supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
Chambers wasn’t having any of that though, which led the mayor of Carbon Hill to issue a few comments online including saying, “Nick Sabin and the Crimson Tide is done in my opinion.”
That was no typo, the mayor did not know how to spell Saban’s name.
Here are a few screenshots of Chambers’ comments:
Following those comments, Chambers resigned from his post on Saturday according to ESPN.com.

The Saturday Down South community is a robust community of passionate football fans, but the comments exist for healthy debate around the game of college football. Nasty arguing or name calling with inappropriate and explicit language will get users removed from the system and/or a shutting down of comments on various articles. Our goal is to facilitate a healthy community of football fans. Arguments over politics and other non-football issues are for other websites. On occasion, we will preemptively shut down comments on articles of sensitive topics if we have seen a recent history of such topics leading to inappropriate arguments. Thanks for understanding.
