    I should bill Reggie hourly for my representation. He can afford it. :)

    Sure, good plan. Just don't do it retroactively. :wink:
     
  3. Better hope Espin, doesnt get ahold of this info.

    "Reggie is paying his publicist, who is a mod on an Ohio state, board. Word is Clarett is involved somehow."

    I just remembered that Reggie's stepfather LaMar Griffin is, in addition to being a security guard, also a minister at Life-Changing International Church Ministries. It is possible he gets a tax exemption for clergy housing allowance. This would make it more possible for him to live in a nicer house than someone else with the same salary.

    Well, I am a booster and I've been representing him for free. Crap! :paranoid:
     
  5. That is not what I hear from my number one source. Espin is saying that he gave you a lot of money and in return you bought him the house.

    Its funny how ESPN has been filling there coffers with Matt Leinhart and Reggie Bush for the last couple of seasons and now that they are gone to the NFL they try to dig up one last "scandal" to milk more money out of them through ratings. I wish Herbstreit would go to another station and start a new college football gameday crew so I wouldn't have to watch anything on that filthy station.

    I never said that they bought the house. I said that ESPN should have asked Reggie if his parents are wealthy enough to "afford" (implying buy or lease) the house. The point is (which you obviously missed), if my parents moved into a new house of any type, I would ask a bunch of questions about it b/c it's just the kind of thing that you do when someone moves. But PARTICULARLY if my parents moved into a house that cost $750K, whether they were leasing or buying it, the first question out of my mouth would be, "How in the world can you guys afford this place?" If you don't think that's the logical first question in this case, you're viewing the world through red and gold eyeglasses.

    I'd like to see this house that is too expensive for the #1 draft pick in the NFL.

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    With all the Gale Sayers hype, he certainly will get his fair share of endorsements also.

    I dont like drawing conclusions based on shitty reporting from ESPN, but whenever Wingo asked Bush a direct question that would take a 3 word answer, he snaked around it.

    "Uh....um....uh...maybe....uh....um.....we've...actually...been..look..ing...for a house..."

    San Diego County assesses the value of the house at $339,394.

    Besides, whether or not the Griffins can afford the house is less relevant than the question ESPN did ask, "Who paid the rent". That question is more relevant to potential infractions (the Griffins could afford something and still not have paid for it) and a lot less invasive of a question.
     
  13. and if the rent was a "fair market value"
     
  14. the reason i pointed out housing values for the area is in columbus 750k would buy you a 90210 type house. a 750k house in columbus would be worth probably 8mil plus in san diego.

    thomps heres just a random house in powell for sale at 759k
    powell is one of the nicest areas in town and fits the new build as reggies parents place.[​IMG]

    ...and if Maurice Clarett, Jim Tressel, or anyone associated with tOSU put them up to accepting a house "rent free". I'm sure it's The Ohio State University's fault somehow! :biggrin:

    Hopefully, the facts come out one way or the other soon (and I truly hope it turns out to be nothing) so I don't have to hear about it every other sentence during the draft...athough I somehow doubt that's a realistic desire.
