Default Fbi raids nfl players' training facility

Could this be concerning illegal player/owner communications????? If so, it could have some serious implications.

Earlier this afternoon, we told you that an unnamed athletic facility that helps to train NFL players was raided by the FBI.

We now know the facility and the reason behind the raid. Josina Anderson of FOX31 in Denver reports that federal agents entered the All-Star Sports facility in Paisley, Florida (near Jacksonville) on Monday morning.

A press release said the indictment included conspiracy and wire fraud.

A quick perusal of All-Star Sportsí poorly updated website reveals relatively limited NFL connections. The facility does offer an NFL Combine training program for college athletes.

PFT didn't ever bother to follow up on the details. Details revealed that the players were not the focus of the investigation.

CFL offseason camp facility raided by FBI agents

Quote:
No sports executive ever wants to hear that anything with any connection to their team was "raided by federal agents". That's something several CFL teams are going to have to deal with this week, though, following an apparent FBI raid on Florida training facility All-Star Sports. The facility has prominent connections to both the NFL and CFL, including serving as an offseason training spot for players and a tryout venue for CFL teams.
Quote:
However, further research into the raid suggests that while this could still be problematic, it's also not as bad as it could have been. When people hear about a federal investigation of a sports facility, many minds jump immediately to drugs, and with good reason. That doesn't appear to be what's going on here. Instead, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the raid was related to Stephen B. DeLuca, who "works at a sports training business" (with his wife listed as an owner), and that he's charged with 33 counts of bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy relating to loan arrangements obtained for his former company, Delco Oil Inc.

All that complication when he could've just sold steroids to the players.
