So it's an ESPN witch hunt coupled with butthurt bama fans.
Just a Bama attorney? No. No its not.
And i wish ppl would quit with the ESPN thing already, yes theyre sh*#. Alot of the time, but they also happen to be one of the richest and biggest networks and one fo the primary ones for the NCAA so who else would report it? NFL.com, CNN?
Fox & CBS also running with it, so its not like theyre worried about libel at this point, esp since the NCAA were investigating Manziel since June - predating alot of this bumpf.
The broker, who has shown ESPN a photograph of Manziel signing autographs in what the broker says is Manziel's hotel room, told Schad he declined to answer six calls from the NCAA.
The broker said he stopped using what is known in the industry as a "proof pic" when an attorney representing Manziel contacted eBay and then the broker spoke with that attorney. The broker said JSA, a leading autograph authentication company, was paid $7 apiece to authenticate all of the broker's Manziel signatures.
Fox wrote:"signed hundreds of items in the main room of the apartment despite the fact that there were many people in the room"
So there is now a 2nd autograph guy, Manziels attorney AND an authentication company? Even before you get to the numerous ppl in the room. Thats quite a number of ppl already. More may yet come.
They cant all be Bama fans on a crusade, thats just silly. Couldnt it just be possible that a young guy whos fallen in with a bad crowd might have been advised to do something silly and rash.
Not like hed ever be capable of making bad decisions on his own (Twitter), right?
