Default Andre Johnson allegations

http://sports.yahoo.com/investigatio...on_allegations

Didn't see this anywhere and thought you guys might find this interesting. Its not as serious as Wilfork who got $50,000 but I'm wondering if he can still get in trouble.

Those are the only benefits I have heard that our Texans got so dar but I have not pulled up the link yet (my info just coming from what has been talked about on 610 today).

The topic title had me worried. I thought the NFL was going to hold an investigation into whether or not Andre is actually a cyborg.

Dodged a bullet there.

Default Re: Andre Johnson allegations

Up here they have been hounding Hester. Seems like he got alot of stuff.

My favorite part about all of these scandals is that Yahoo sports is showing how far and above they are compared to ESPN. They actually do real reporting and real journalism where they do interviews, etc. Oregon and now this. Guys like Wojo get all the inside NBA scoop. ESPN just reposts what they hear.

I see. Nothing, it was just something of note since he was a Texan I guess.

The NCAA is a joke IMO. Dre's ring shouldn't be tarnished from his championship and MVP at the U.

so with Larry Coker starting up football program here at UTSA, and he was around during all that, I am wondering if he gets dragged into it.

Default Re: Andre Johnson allegations

He got some free drinks and VIP access. Big freakin' deal! That may amount to a couple of hundred dollars or so. It's not like the guy paid for him a new house, car, and lavish vacations abroad. The guy is a douche and is grabbing at straws if you ask me. How in the hell can you get in trouble for receiving drinks? I'd write the dude a check for couple of Benjamins and tell him to go and **** himself. Ass clown.

Default Re: Andre Johnson allegations

Andre just commented on it......said he is not worried about it and not a big deal and he can only speak for himself.

Dre said he doesn't remember any benefits like that. He said he is upset about it bt can't control it and he knows and Dre knows what really happened.

(typing as I listen...forgive any misspellings)

He says has not been contacted by anyone from NCAA or otherwise.

--That was it and was said right after morning practice just minutes ago.

It is my professional opinion that the Houston Texans should win a Super Bowl so AJ gets a nice ring to make up for this obvious injustice.

Default Re: Andre Johnson allegations

Not really addressing AJ but there needs to be some sanity to this amateur athlete stuff. One, the rules should be uniform for all sports. If college football players can't charge to give tutoring to high school players then tennis and skiing team members shouldn't be allowed to give lessons. And they shouldn't be allowed to do endorsements if football players can't. Or flip it around and everyone can. Also there needs to be some de minimis understanding of ordinary life. It shouldn't be wrong to accept a drink from someone while they want to sit down and talk to you. It's ordinary life to buy drinks for other people.

Here I was expecting Dre to have received some big time bonus. $10k in his locker when he got back or something. But all the asshat has is he paid for AJ to enjoy some VIP treatment and some drinks?



No, Andre will not be getting in any kind of trouble for receiving free drinks.

I agree 100% about there needing to be some sort of uniformity. I never gave it much of a thought before, but it makes perfect sense.

QFT.

This, and the lack of a legit playoff system, is why I can't be bothered to watch college football (outside of my son's team, of course).

The ADs and bowl committee's have way too much power and it turns the entire industry into a freakin' joke.

You mean to tell me one the biggest recruits coming out of HS was paid/received extra benefits to go to a certain school. I'm shocked I tell you, utterly gob-smacked.

Yawn. Such a non-story.
