Now he tells us. I’m sure that will make everything okay now.
Funny how that hindsight stuff works.

If he was on fire I wouldn’t ………you get the idea.
Agreed, six niner. I’d keep it in my diaper.
Well, I’m pretty sure his pants are on fire.
When you obtain a lawyer, things change.
Aholes don’t come any bigger.
This has mental illness. He’s a sociopath.
I watched it live and was howling with laughter. Ed Garland even looks embarrassed reading it and that man helps MURDERERS go free.

Ray Lewis just winked at you, and he thinks Garland’s conscience is clear.

With all the UGA grads and law grads and supporters in the Ga. Gen. Assembly, I hope some legislation can be passed that will give these sorts of bottom feeders pause before they entice college athletes into their schemes.
I propose starting with a stiff fine. On a second offense, post their name and image on YouTube with the bold title “How to hack the NSA.” Subtitle: “How I cheated the IRS out of million$.”
That’d probably stop ’em.
I think there already is a law. It’s likely the reason he lawyered up.
There is a law, but it would be pointless to go after him. He has no money, so UGA has nothing to gain from it.
UGA could still ruin the guy with a lawsuit knowing they would only be throwing good money after bad. Sounds like that was the bargaining chip behind the very deliberately-worded comments from Bryan Asshole’s attorney… that affirmation of the $400 and nothing more signals the NCAA isn’t getting anything else out of Bryan Asshole and the 2-game suspension should suffice.
“Garland told Winne that Allen has not paid money to any other college athlete for autographs.”
it’s awfully convenient that suddenly Allen admits to the most benign version of the known facts, and not a smidgen more. A more cynical person might be tempted to suggest he was “shaping the narrative to the known facts.” One could speculate on the reason he’d do that; the simplest explanation is it’s true. Or maybe he figured this version was the easiest way to stop his own discomfort. There are other possibilities I’d rather not say out loud.
For all I know, or can prove, or for all I know that anyone can prove, that may be exactly what happen, but it sure doesn’t resoundingly ring of the unvarnished truth. I am a firm believer in the concept of innocent until proven guilty, and I completely understand the gap between “what one suspects” and “what one can prove.”
That last sentence makes me a tad uncomfortable. I’m one of the people who sneered at AU fans who defended Cam. This is much less money, but the same principle (or lack of principle, if you will). I have to admit that bothers me.
What Newton did and what Gurley did are two completely different things. Gurley broke a rule, yes, but it’s widely thought of as a stupid rule and it was for very little money. Newton was willingly sold by his father to the highest bidder; a school with a reputation for being the college football equivalent of the Illinois Governer’s office. What Gurley did was careless; what Newton did was corrupt.
What Todd did violated the rules, and he has served a punishment for it. Has he done other stuff in violation of the rules and not been punished? Possibly. Does that make him different from anyone else, including ordinary folks who violate laws and don’t get caught for it? Don’t think so.
Fuck that shitheel. That is all.
Maybe he can yell how he admires Gurley while his ass is getting beat and the people kicking his ass will stop a little earlier?
I see…he’s the victim. Maybe he can peddle some #FreeAllen t-shirts.
I say we tell Mr Allen all is forgiven if I can punch him right in his fucking snout in the second hour of College Gameday.
How about Gurley recompense against FU with one yard rushing for every dollar that spineless reptile fan accused him of taking?
I still think the guy did the whole thing to get Gurley kicked off the team in order to help FU win the cocktail party.
Ding ding ding!
Winner, winner, chicken dinner
After seeing how Georgia performed without Gurley during the last two weeks — and how Florida performed during the same time span — he may have just thrown up his hands and decided it was a lost cause either way.
What a joke…just like in elementary school, the tattletale realized that he made a terrible decision and now just wants everyone to stop picking on him. As if it would make any damn difference now.
Wait. So who is the victim here? It is a stupid rule and therefore Allen is a victim of the NCAA too. That is one impressive leap.
I hope this guy gets everything he deserves.
That is all this hot shot lawyer could come up with ?
It’s not like he had much to work with.
Agreed, but since when has that ever stopped a lawyer before?
Careful … don’t spike the good Senator!
Full disclosure, aristoggle and Senator, I’ve been a member of the Bar for 30 years or so.
Cool story, bro. Go back into whatever hole you were in before and stay outta any UGA affairs.
