You don't have to corroborate the fact that Gilbert Arenas said something. He said it.I hate Duke. No, I despise Duke. But there has to be some corroboration or this piece cannot be printed and obviously there was none because it would be the lead story on SportCenter and every other news outlet.
No it wouldn't. ESPN would never out Duke, or any other of their top TV revenue producing college programs, basketball or football.I hate Duke. No, I despise Duke. But there has to be some corroboration or this piece cannot be printed and obviously there was none because it would be the lead story on SportCenter and every other news outlet.
The schools that do this well have layers of deniability. They don’t pay directly, rather the sneaker companies or other third parties pay. The payer pays someone, who has a relationship with the player. Chief has seen it all and it’s a tangled web.Don't get me wrong, I want Duke to be found guilty of this but if Nike or other companies have been paying money there HAS to be evidence more than his word or his story, and you shouldn't have to be Columbo to find it. Until then it's an unsubstantiated rumor.
And Roy at UNC didn’t cheat with fake classes for years.Nope. Duke is such a desirable place and coach K is such a legend that he doesn't need to cheat. Just like Calimari doesn't need to cheat and Penny doesn't need to cheat and Self doesn't need to cheat and Roy doesn't need to cheat. Did I miss anyone?
Hey, Canseco was the most honest man in baseball, why not Gilby?if you cant trust the most insane nba player in the last two decades who can you trust?
