Nobody cares what Avenetti has to say at this point. At first he seemed a good guy but now he's just using that fame to get on the news any way he can to spout off on any topic he can. Sad.

 Just so you know, you're wrong about this. This guy may be as slimy as they come, but it's not like  he is speaking in generalizations at this point, these are very specific claims, and unless he is just a blithering idiot then it stands to reason that he probably has the goods.  He has named very specific parties, within a very specific time frame, using very specific methods of payment, that isn't the hallmark of a bluff.

Exactly.

This is like tbe crackhead who calls the cops because his roommate stole his dope.

This is why extortion works, but Nike has less to lose than the college athletic programs that get taken down by this.

Most blackmailers do have the goods.

 Yep, it's pretty difficult to be successful at it if you don't.

In other words you're saying "****, I hope he's right about all of this, I wanna see Duke get ****ed with a rusty screwdriver!!!"  :ols:

My personal feelings about what happens to Duke with various hand/powertools is irrelevant to the facts germane to the case...they may drive my interest in the case tho.

Nobody cared what Canseco had to say either. They sure tried to discredit him though instead of taking him to court.

 

wonder why?

When the guilty speak openly it's always interesting to see who tries to silence them.

What are the odds that those at Nike who decided to press charges against Avanatti

1) didn't know the full story

2) didn't think he had what he said he had

3) didn't think he's air it all

4) decided they had less to lose

Canseco's book led to a Congressional Hearing. Then there was the Game of Shadows book on Bonds/Balco, then the Mitchell Report.

 

But Canseco brought a lot to the forefront.

I'm going with #4 

 

People that think they have you over a barrel rarely stop after the first time.
