Again, source in LA says ESPN reporting something about Bush and his family being extorted by the bumbling trio agent, David Caravantes.
I missed the story, will await the next SportsCenter or any other links on the various websites.
More details needed to see how this reflects on the main issue of the rental agreement and also agent contact.
This story just get crazier and crazier.
The NFL Players Association and NFL Security have concluded that sports agent David Caravantes and marketing company New Era Sports used an attorney to try and force USC running back Reggie Bush to pay them $3.2 million after Bush decided not to sign with the group, sources told ESPN's Joe Schad on Thursday.
According to the sources, Caravantes threatened to reveal embarrassing personal information about the Bush family if he did not receive the money. Sources also say Caravantes tried to evict the family from a San Diego house they rented from his business associate Michael Michaels
Just taking a wild stab here, but what are the odds that at least one of Yahoo! Sports writer Charles Robinson's sources was Caravantes or an associate? If so, he's now part of the story, having been the tool for a revenge-minded Caravantes to get back at Bush and the Griffins who refused to bend in front of threats of embarrasment and extortion.
This still doesn't excuse the Griffins. This story may be the reason for their delay in discussing the housing deal, and they may yet not have ok from attorney, but at some point they have to explain what happened and provide ample, legitimate documentation.
The NCAA and Pac-10 are waiting.
ESPN also reporting that the NCAA and Pac-10 will wait until after this weekend's NFL draft to begin interviews about the Griffins' housing deal.
