NCAA Finds Out Manziel And Others On Autograph “Client List”


looked, didn't see it, not going through the Johnny Football thread to find it.

quote:

While investigating Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, NCAA investigators were made aware of a “client list” involving numerous college football stars and the same memorabilia brokers involved with Manziel, Sports Radio 610 has learned.

The nature of those relationships was unclear, as was how the NCAA was made aware of the list. But a source close to key figures in the case said multiple notable players who have starred in the game over the past decade were found to have had contact with the same brokers involved in the Manziel case.

The star-studded “client list” goes back as far as 2004, according to the source, and might have rocked the NCAA’s world — especially if the NCAA ruled Manziel ineligible despite no evidence that he accepted money for autographs.

The source said prominent names from virtually every major football conference were found to have had a relationship at some level with the brokers.

if true this is likely part of why Johnny only got a half game suspension.

Manziel's half game suspension should definitely put a stop to that type of stuff now.

I doubt that's what the NCAA would be worried about if this report is true.

They were probably scared shitless at the prospect of going after multiple big time schools for autographs.

They don't want to give the power more reasons to tell them to piss off.

or could it be the NCAA, SEC, ESPN, and A&M have to much riding on last year's Heisman winner to actually punish him for actions?

I think they could handle one big name player going down.

But if big names from every single conference had to also get suspended on top of wins being vacated from the past?

That's something they wouldn't want to even look at let alone touch.

After giving Manziel only a half game though what could they really do to these former and current players?

I know the NCAA is the definition of inconsistent when it comes to punishment but what if they found similar evidence or whatever they found on Manziel from a former player. Can they really say "okay Manziel gets a half game, but we're vacating wins from team X for playing an ineligible player"

Manziel shows that he not only can elude on the field, but off also.

No, I'm saying they gave Johnny a half game and washed their hands of it completely once they saw how widespread it is. They didn't want to take everyone down but had to do something with Johnny since ESPN had reported it. They cut a deal with the Manziel's for half a game so they wouldn't go nuclear and blow the top off the widespread autograph sales in college football out of anger.

They should probably be concerned that they just gave everybody the blueprint and the OK to do the same thing in the future.

They should. But I doubt they are. They are probably much more concerned with how much longer they are allowed to suckle the teat of FBS football.

Forde's too busy making sure Shabazz Muhummad doesn't have anything that might be too expensive.
