I'm not talking about legal implications, just pointing out that Beason is obviously not being forthcoming about the situation, that is all.

If this is pursued legally, it'll never see a courtroom. Beason has plenty of money after signing that new deal. He'll write a check for hush money and this will quietly go away as far as his involvement in it. His public image is with a lot more than the hush money would cost him.


I think he ought to fight it, cause there is no way you can prove, he received benefits over an autograph.

IRS could also get involved because this is undeclared income they got.

Fine em all, suspend some, do whatever.

Send a message to these dudes and kids coming up that this will catch up with you and it doesn't get left behind when you leave your school to pick up the pieces.

I wonder how Beason feels knowing he took someone's retirement away from them.

But does Beason want his make drug through the mud about benefits he may have received that ultimately came from an illegal ponzi scheme?

Even if he gets off on a legal and/or civil case, he could still be convicted in the court of public opinion in what would likely become a pretty public affair with some potentially very unflattering info coming out. That could be very damaging to him in the way of possible endorsements, etc. Writing a hush money check would likely be the smarter choice in the long run.

Yeah, because Jon Beason is the only NFL player EVER to have taken benefits from a booster while playing college football... :rolleyes:

They can sue whoever they want but unless they can prove that these players knew or should have known it was illegal money they probably won't get anywhere

Here we go with your trolling, the NFL isn't about to suspend players over something that happened 7 years ago in the NCAA, nice dreams. But it isn't gonna happen.

Plenty do. From boosters, from agents, from all kinds of places. It's an epidemic. NCAA amateurism is a sham. It just is. I mean, just look how many schools have come under investigation as of late. If all the details were known, I'd be willing to bet the NCAA could build a case against every D1 school out there and likely a good number of lesser ones too.

There is a very low chance that any of the victims will be able to get anything from the players. They would need to prove that they players knew or should have known about the ponzi scheme. Seems like a big stretch but the trustee has an obligation to try and recover this money. I would think this wouldn't get very far other than headlines.

If it gets muddy enough. Lawsuits, IRS investigations, allegations of hookers and abortions.

The NFL can't have it, not after a lockout.

This. And why should they? None of this involves the NFL in any way.

They also can't afford to open Pandora's box by setting a precedent that could lead to a big chunk of their players getting suspended.

I'd say it's the rare high level D1 athlete who didn't accept an improper benefit of some kind during his collegiate career. Likely not to this level, but improper none the less.

So set the bar at this level.

If this continues, the NFL will become the NBA and no one will care about it.

The problem will NEVER get better unless the NFL gets involved.
