There is something I do blame Todd Gurley for… thinking that a guy this stupid would be discreet.
Filed under Georgia Football, It's Just Bidness
Hey, we may as well see for ourself who this loser is. Meet Bryan Allen, your new best friend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL8RjXYLGUs
Are you sure this is the man? A google of the name showed a Bryan Joseph Allen whose many addresses include what ESPM said Villarica.
Other reports say the guy used to run a memoribilia shop in Rome, so I think that’s your man.
Yeah, why was this scumbag filming Gurley anyway? sarcasm font.
To prove that the autographs are authentic.
You would think that would be filmed from the front what I saw was from a distance and the back.
To use to blackmail Gurley for future autographed merchandise “or else” threaten to turn Gurley in–which is exactly what happened.
Obviously this loser planned this all along.
You really think this fucker is that smart? I certainly don’t.
Hell no. This isn’t smart. He might have thought he was very clever though.
Here here. I hope karma catches up to this guy.
I would also like to make a bold prediction about tomorrow’s game. Chubb and Douglas are going to be so effective that the TV announcers are going to be saying ” the Dawgs don’t even need Gurley.”
our offense will be running…Doubbs.
Get it? Doubbs! Douglas + Chubb….Doubbs….
//puts head back in oven
I’ve got a chubby from now on.
Go Dawgs dammit.
Guess I am a little stupid. Before Gurley was suspended I was picking Mizzou to win. Now I think the Dawgs have a legitimate chance to win.
We’re gonna beat them like a drum. There’s a lot of guys on this team and they’re gonna get fired up about all this talk that Gurley was all we had. And they’re right to get fired up.
Go you hairy Dawgs.
If by “karma” you mean several pissed off great big guys catching up to this guy I’d say, “yeah,” that is somewhat likely.
Or Douglas fumbles in the red zone like he did last year and I cry in my beer. Yeah, I’m in L.A. and I drink beer at nine in the morning.
I’m a Georgia fan. What do you expect?
I’m in Georgia and I’m prone to drink beer at nine in the morning on certain Saturdays. Assuming I wake up in time.
can’t drink all day if you don’t start early.
Hiring the man who defended Ray Lewis…and our AD takes this guy at his word, and doesn’t fight it. Shaking my head….
Hate to tell you this, but this is just one guy. Word is UGA has spoken with several dealers who all confirmed they paid Gurley. I am hearing numbers in the thousands of dollars.
only after seeking said dealers on their own volition in order to protect their almighty dollar
And I’m sure they had legit proof, unlike this guy’s “no it doesn’t show money changing hands” right? Otherwise, someone should as McGarity why Gurley wasn’t suspended over obvious bullshit assault charges too, as right now they both have the same amount of proof.
Not disputing you but UGA has no subpoena power and doesn’t have any benefits to give to guys who pay under the table, so why would guys paying under the table snitch? Seems it would make it harder to get guys to sign for them.
I’m sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere. If so, lead me in the right direction, please. But what I don’t understand is what motivates these people to out someone like Gurley. I thought the same thing about Manziel. Maybe he was scorned by Gurley and it was payback?
Gurley apparently signed a bunch of other autographs with other folks, thus the ones he did with this guy weren’t as exclusive and thus their value decreased.
This guy was fucking stupid then. If I’m a dealer, unless I offer a ridiculous number of them, why does the player stop accepting offers to sign memorabilia? If I hit you with 10k for a football, sure, you’ll probably stick with me. But the report indicated he wanted something like $8-$25 per signature depending on the number done. For that money, I’d be signing shit for people every day, all day. Fuck you, random guy who gave me a couple hundred dollars.
I mean, fuck him anyways, that piece of straight garbage. But still.
So now, since every player knows he did this he will nevery get another player to sign for him. Dumbass is scuttling his business.
Go read the Deadspin story. He said that he paid Gurley for autographs and that Gurley was flooding the market with autographs for other vendors and he was just trying to sell the video to a web media outlet to recoup some of his lost “investment” because the autographed items declined in value.
If only Gurley won heisman maybe his sig would be worth something.
The idiot dealer really shot himself in the foot. If he just had waited and Gurley did win the Heisman all that stuff would have quadrupled in value. Now he is a pariah in his home state and probably has guys looking for him all over the place. I do not feel sorry for him, though.
And, if Gurley is not reinstated, he can sign as much as he wants and get as much as he wants and this guy’s stuff becomes even less valuable.
He said he was trying to recoup some of his losses (value of gurley signed items dropping) by selling the story. He was mad that Gurley either was selling his autograph to others, or that he stopped selling them altogether. Spiteful greedy scumbag, and an idiot to boot.
the same reason that loser guys post naked pics of their ex-girlfriend on the web after they get dumped.
Certain people (beyond Tech fans) are bitter losers.
I DONT WANT PUBLICITY (UNDERSCORE) (BOLD)
Here’s my name and home phone number
Yeah, I’m not sure how that moron didn’t know his name would get out. Hackers got into the phones of celebrities and stole pictures, some of which HAD ALREADY BEEN DELETED, and this guy thinks he’s gonna get away with sabotaging someone for no good reason by emailing at least a half dozen different people and giving out his full name and cell phone number?
Not to mention the very guy that he’s screwing over knows who he is and has no reason in the world to not divulge his identity to the masses.
I hope he goes out of business.
His Rome store already tanked – closed sometime last year
Yep financially desperate douche. I am not sure Gurley really did anything now. Why does this guy need Eddie Garland? Does he fear criminal prosecution? If so, from whom and what for? Eddie is a defense lawyer not a body guard. This smells to high heaven.
How can this guy start to pay Ed Garland? Fishy.
Fears of an extortion charge, perhaps?
I think this may have something to do with it:
Here he is, go get him boys.
I realize you’re joking. At least, I hope you are. But that’s pretty irresponsible. I really hope that nobody does anything to harm this guy. Football’s a game.
not advocating violence, but he “outed” himself in a conspiracy involving a hulking muscular football player that is beloved by millions of people, many of whom are not well adjusted. He’s not smart enough to flesh out the consequences of his actions.
I’m all about free speech, but if I walk into a black neighborhood in a klan robe yelling at the residents, I’m inviting harm.
If Todd Gurley goes after him, I guess I can kinda get that. If some fan who is mad that his team loses a football game goes after him? Sheesh.
I’m not advocating violence of any sort. I see more of a Steve Bartman situation where this guy reaps his rewards and finds another state to live in. Sadly Bartman didn’t deserve what he got. This guy does.
the way cubs fans treated that dude, and still talk about him to this day, is really a shame. just a guy with his radio headset on who loved the cubs, totally shit on by asshole players, media and fans. screw the cubs
I don’t condone doing anything…..but I understand…..
I will never spend a dime in his store, and I’m sure most others feel the same way. That’s about as far as I’d like to see things go, though.
Yes mother, it was a joke.
I hope there’s a UGA fan at every job interview he ever has in the future. If he opens a store, I hope people picket it with signs that say “DON’T BUY SHIT FROM THIS LOATHSOME ASSHOLE.” I hope every time he shows himself in public that there is a crowd of Dawgs telling him he is fucking vermin.
Whatever. I hope somebody beats the shit out of him.
and wouldn’t jump in to break it up.
scumbags get punched in the face on a regular basis….I have no problem with it
Nope, fuck that. Time to declare holy jihad on this son of a bitch.
This ain’t a game. It’s Gurley’s life here.
Is this the real person????? There are several Bryan Allen with address in GA. I found a Bryan Joseph Allen who is listed to have Villarica as one of his addresses as identified by ESPN/
Didn’t some of you guys “out” an entirely different guy (with address) in an earlier post? Vigilantes suck, too.
Still not 100% sure on his motive (seems like a petty bitch) but I am fairly sure this isn’t going to work out how he wanted it to in the long run. Unless literally all he cared about is getting Gurley suspended at all costs. The memorabilia Kamakazi
Just Damn. I grew up in Douglasville.
Home of Pulpwood….
Pulpwood ratted on Gurley??? Say it ain’t so!
Pulpwood lives in Douglasville now? And ratted out Gurley? Damn!! 🙂
Apparently, he was peddling the story to anyone who’d listen trying to sell it to ESPN, Sports illustrated and 10-20 other publications. When asked by one of the publications why he was trying to share this story with them, this is the rationale he gave via email to them:
“Again, not offended at all if you have no interest. TMZ has seen the video but NP (no payment) offer has been made.
Again, not trying to get rich. I spent a few grand on the signing and Gurley has since kind of screwed me by doing this with about 30 other guys. The stuff has lost a ton of its value. Just wanna recoup some of my money.”
Amazing how he was fine with Gurley breaking the rules until this douche bag realized he wasn’t the only one benefiting and then decided to throw Gurley under the bus.
Even the Heisman trust thinks they should #FreeGurl3y http://www.si.com/college-football/2014/10/10/heisman-trophy-integrity-mission-statement?xid=nl_siextra
Just catching up to Cam and Johnny Football.
Perhaps the Senator can weigh in here, but, this clown-ass seems like the type that would have also left a text/voicemail/email/twitter trail telling Gurley that ‘you either sign only for me, or I’ll ruin your life’, which, if I recall, is something approaching either blackmail, extortion, or both. Assuming this guy is the snitch, I’d LOVE to see him get run up on extortion charges…
He’s obviously a dummy so he’s most likely screwed up somewhere along the line in this. If he’s using UGA logo on any of his junk, there would be grounds for the Universtiy to sue him, Aye? I’d bet there is blackmail / extortion here somewhere. That may be why he needs a lawyah.
I suspect that is exactly why he would hire a criminal lawyer.
While I can understand why some would be upset with him, the majority of the blame lies with Gurley. After all, he’s the one who chose to break the rules, which ultimately set him up for this.
There’s an old saying….those who are willing to do something (notably wrong/ or illegal) with you, they’ll also do to you. When you engage in transactions with knuckleheads like this, you can expect them to sell you down the river the first chance they get.
You got any actual proof beyond this jackhole’s word and a video that doesn’t show money changing hands?
I am pretty sure coach doesn’t suspend a Heisman candidate unless Gurley fessed up. Seriously, do you think they just took this dude’s word for it over Gutley’s howling protests of innocence?
And Treon Harris has had his suspension lifted in Gainesville.
You know what, y’all? I blame this on Vince skipping Easter services that Sunday back in 1980 just to go get Herschel to sign. Even a Godly man like Richt can’t get the Lord to smile on us again.
It was worth it.
rather, +a whole bunch
Gurley sells memorabilia for $$ suspended possibly for the year. Jamis Winston and Treon Harris rape women and both are playing tomorrow. Let that sink in for a minute.
Again, the recent success of Auburn is all the proof I need that He ain’t involved in CFB.
Gurley needed some money, sold his name.
Nick Marshall needed money, so he stole from teammates.
Gurley sits Saturday. Marshall plays.
Not as bad as rape, but still backwards.
I wonder where got the money to hire Ed Garland
Good question as I don’t see any reason Garland would take this on a contingency basis as there doesn’t seem to be any profit in it.
There is no plaintiff’s suit here for Mr. Allen. He is paying a sizable retainer.
Eddie is usually criminal defense. What prosecution does he expect? Some sort of civil defense? Is he expecting a libel lawsuit? Is this guy completely full of crap then? I don’t get hiring Eddie at all unless he knows he made this crap up.
He probably violated UGA logo copyright…however you legalspeak that.
Wouldn’t he hire an intellectual property guy then? I don’t get it, but maybe I am being obtuse. Wouldn’t be the first time.
sorry just noted Uglydawg had already said that.
Maybe he hasn’t been paying taxes on the $$. Must be some reason. He’ll need a change of venue if he ends up charged with anything.
I wonder if double-dawg Ed Garland is a season ticket holder.
On his Reddit thread, he stated that his Cam Newton stuff skyrocketed after the ‘scandal’ broke. My guess, he wanted this to happen so his product would go up in value just as it had done in the past.
What a piece of shit loser this guy is.
OK, so Auburn has guys go on HBO and say they were paid, an Auburn booster was being investigated by the FBI for using his bank as a money laundering scheme to funnel money to Auburn players, and the NCAA does very little. Yet they go full bore soley on the word of this bottom feeding sack of shit?
Because Auburn always clams up. The NCAA’s investigatory arm is basically dead after the Miami fiasco. You have to give them a case on a silver platter. Which is what we pretty much are doing.
Typical Richt, McGarrity and folks a Butts-Mehre.
I don’t claim to know what the best thing to do here is. I’ve always been told that if the IRS comes after you to clam-up and be as uncooperative as you can..they have many fish to fry and will not waste time with one that isn’t biting. But don’t ever expect an institution as classy as The University of Georgia to be involved in a cover-up… ever since Jan Kemp that dog won’t hunt.
ever since Jan Kemp that dog won’t hunt
Truth spoken here ^^
That Jan Kemp thing was not pretty.
classy as in higher ups in the AD office screwing each other?
in other words….Auburn protects their players
The NCAA hasn’t done a thing. This is all self imposed.
^The beginning of wisdom.
“Solely on the word?” I HIGHLY doubt that’s the case. There’s some hard evidence for sure.
Stacey Osbourn speaks!
This is my post above; just realized there was another “Ben” in the discussion . . .
Who’s been Ben the longest, Ben? Ben or Ben 10?
It doesn’t matter. I can find another random pseudonym to post under.
Just kidding. Sorry for the snark. Ben ’10. Guess I was looking for some comic relief at your expense.
We all need to take what we can get right now . . .
This guy has to leave the state or he’ll be looking over his shoulder everywhere he goes. It’s just so hard to believe TG3II would do this to the extent that the leaks seem to indicate. I want to hear directly from Todd. I only think that’s going to happen when he gives up his remaining eligibility.
Didn’t the state of Alabama pass a law making it against the law to do anything with student athletes that would jeopardize their eligibility.
Georgia did, too … can’t remember when, but it was during Smiley Perdue’s tenure.
Then UGA needs to go after this guy with full force.
Looks like the law applies only if UGA is put on probation.
This guy ASSumed exclusivity rights. Any contract states this. Since it was against NCAA rules, he should not have ASSumed anything. There is no contract. This guy deserves the backlash he gets.
Senator, can you help some of us non-legal minds? Why has Allen retained an attorney?
Posted on the net is a video of Allen speaking of clothing, autographs, and etc at his store in Rome Georgia. Did he sell those at that store and how did those purchasers know they were authentice? His representation or, plus I have a video. How many are left in inventory? How did he know others were sold at a greater or less value. Who did he link too.
Hopefully the state attorney general and GBI go into this.
But here is the list.
A J Green
Josh Havey Clemons
Where and will it end.
Hopefully somebody in north Georgia has what it takes to shut this person down.
Regretable but you are already hearing some Georgia folks saying they are just going to tune out this year considering all the dismissals, permanent injuries, and overall play. They say it is not worth the time and money anymore.
But things have to change at UGA.
I’ll personally have even more of a reason to watch the game tomorrow.
It’s going to be very interesting and may have a good ending for Dawg fans…I wouldn’t be suprised if it went either way.
Yeah he is a Gator Fan:
If you’ll look at an earlier thread, I predicted that. It smelled like FU all along. Not UT or USC because we already have played them and the hammer would have been dropped before their game with Georgia. Not Tech–too soon. Tech would have waited to be closer to the COFH game for maximum effect. Not Mizzou because dropping that bomb 3 days before the Mizzou-UGA game would have been too obvious. Auburn was a possibility but Auburn is in the West and wouldn’t benefit as much as a division rival would. This screamed “FU.” A put up job done by a Gayturd moron.
Herschel screwed up in 83. He says as much. Gurley screwed up this year. A shame, but that’s what happened. This slime ball, evidently one of several swimming in the same merchandising pond, was just the worst of the enablers. You’re right: A player willing to put his career in the hands of people like this is going down a bad road.
What I would like to know is how do this happen?
All signed cards on EBAY from professional companies. How were these deals done? These kids were all minors. Was anyone paid for the autographs here?
What a travesty.
We don’t know they are actual signatures and not fakes. plenty of fakes on Ebay.
They are from a licensed company selling Army All American cards. This is an official approved and marketed merchandise. Who got paid? The kids were/are in HS, so are the parents authorizing this? Are they compensated?
If he’s just trying to recoup his money, he went about it all wrong.
Really just curious: What has your hit count been since yesterday?
It sounds like an Auburn dirty trick to me.
Why would the snitch/”business man” turn Gurley in mid season when surely if Gurley won the Heisman, the merchandise would be worth a lot more. Unless the point was always to get Gurley suspended and get a bigger pay-off b/c right now, anything with Todd Gurley’s name on it ain’t selling.
Florida Fan, not Aubie.

If Todd has smart advisors he has played his last free game of football. If the AD got him to confess then I have a degree from the dumbest university in the world. The old saying is that Good guys finish last and UGA is living proof of that.
If I was Gurley I would issue a statement apologizing to the fans and my teammates but I would not mention the University or the NCAA, both of which can just screw themselves. I would explain that I knew what I was violating the NCAA rules but as a thoughtful black man I felt the rule was Un-American and immoral. That an Organization built for the sole purpose of exploiting for profit 18 to 22 year olds has outlived it’s evil life I will make it up to may fans and teammates by being the best NFL running back I can be. This team has lost so many of the players I came in with that my absence will not hurt it.
I have a slightly different take. If I were Gurley’s attorney I would advise him to say nothing either in public, on social media, in private or in any way at all about this subject. If someone were to ask him about this my advice would be to walk away immediately without uttering a syllable.
Aren’t you Fucking Brilliant of Dawgtown.
Aren’t you fucking stupid, Subspecies?
UGA Has hired an eligibility lawyer for Gurley and said there I’d a lot of misinformation out there. They said no matter what he is a Bulldawg.
They haven’t hired an eligibility lawyer, they have hired THE eligibility laywer. Bill King at Lightfoot Franklin in Birmingham. Represented Cam and Manziel. You know how those turned out. Gurley hasn’t played his last game for Georgia. King will work his magic.
Thanks for the name. Great news!!
The difference is where before the schools hired him against the NCAA, this this it’s Gurley hiring him. The school is the one that has suspended him. Not sure who the lawyer is going up against.
I thought the Manziel’s hired their own lawyers also.
The school is paying for the lawyer for Gurley
Good info. Thanks for that.
Just had a beer with an athletic dept employee This guy is well known. Has been run off multiple times. Booger.
Chubb and Douglas. Go Dogs.
I can’t get over what en evil act this Bryan Allen has committed.
Funny how the more the facts come out….facts matter. Yet another sad a sordid tale of Big Business CFB, media, fans, etc.
I’m numb. Maybe amatuer football and the pageantry and glory of cheering for your alma mater was always a myth. Maybe UGA’s historic role will not be the Gurley affair, but back to 1980 (again) as being the beginning of the end.
Posting here at #130+ I almost have to wonder if the Senator is ready to quit too. Somehow I envision one day we will find that he’s just stopped posting. No farewell, no rant, just walking away. Look at the recent MNC participants and Heisman winners…is there really anything left to cheer for? Did we all buy in, just a little bit, that Gurley was going to resurrect 1980? Isn’t it clear that will NEVER happen again, not just for UGA, but anybody?
Deep breath. I want to write a requiem. I’ll wait 24 hours. I’ll keep my Fabris Pool pick for the Dawgs. I’ll pray I get excited as say Goooo Dawgs Sic’em Woof when toe first meets leather tomorrow.
We’re all tired and it’s easy to say, “I don’t give a damn”.
But tomorrow’s another day.
Hunker Down Hairy Dawgs
It’s the journey not the destination grasshopper. I learned that years ago. As a lifelong Bear fan I sat and watched that incredible team win the Superbowl and I thought “that’s it” decades of misery and finally we won it and it didn’t mean shit. I still love em and I love the dogs but that “we’re number one” shit don’t mean nuthin. FIDO
Yea, well, that’s my experience. It’s ALL bullshit.
