FWIW it's "tattoo" not "tatoo" like "Tatooine."
His spelling in his title looks right to me, maybe you should look again...
It was edited, it's all good now.
People have to feel better about themselves somehow...lord knows refreshing mgoblog every 2 minutes isn't going to enhance anyone's self esteem.
Thank you. That's almost the nicest complement anyone's ever given me on the site :-)
No, it would not be difficult or costly.
Brian could enable spellcheck, it is a button that just needs to be enabled via CKeditor.
Oh dear could I ever use that. Word and autocorrect have decimated my once really gud spelling and grammar skills. Let's start a facebook page that encourages Brian to implement spell check!
If you'd like to use a software program that has a built-in spell checker (a la MS Word) be sure to copy your text from Word into something like NotePad. NotePad will remove all in-line styling. Then copy from NotePad and paste to your MGoPost.
Its just so much work though.
now has its version of Ed Martin locked and loaded and ready to sing. Throw a box of popcorn to the NCAA, too, as we enjoy thtis together.
Public Service Announcement:
Since we are nowhere near the end of the Tat-Gate saga (which I am getting a great deal of enjoyment from), lets all remember that it's spelled "Tattoo."
Sorry to be that guy, but someone had to.
I assume the government will be much more interested in learning about the alleged drug dealing than the Ohio State stuff. Giving away tattoos (or tatoos, for that matter) and buying gold pants aren't crimes. I wonder how much they'll bother to poke around further into the OSU issues.
How do you think UM hoops ended up where it did......Ed Martin. Mr. Rife is there Mr. Martin.
Wasn't he charged with tax evasion, though? That would have made the destination of hundreds of thousands of dollars a logical part of the case. Dealing drugs (allegedly) and buying sports memorabilia/giving discounts on tattoos has a less obvious connection.
I think it was the money laundering that brought attention onto money given to basketball players. Ed Rife is also charged with money laundering, but I'm not sure if/how it ties into any memorabilia purchases.
i would think that the money laundering aspect of this will get to that
Get the Taser.
Edward Rife will cause a rift because those gold pants are the needle in the 200-LB haystack of Marijuana the feds are poking around. Rife will be cooperating for reduced sentence and he will be quite detailed as tatgate falls well within the lethal fall out limits.
There is certainly a possibility that some of the money laundering involved dealing with OSU players.
have already said the players aren't involved in any of the actual criminal stuff. The money laundering relates to buying things with proceeds from Rife's drug sales.
This is seriously like Christmas....stretched over many months. And I'm Jewish.
Hanukah? (sorry for spelling)
It's not an english word, and doesn't use the same alphabet. I prefer Channukah, but that's just me. And it's only 8 days, so this is like Super-Channukah. Or something
It is spelled chutzpah, I think.
I don't think that is enough for the whole football team. Clearly this guy was just a middleman.
He's a quality OSU fan...
On how many other names of OSU players are revealed before this is all done? I mean, this guy was selling weed. Anyone think there weren't at least some players signing autographs and trading memorabilia for Mary Jane?
How long before the Feds start subpoenaing Buckeye player?
Buckeye Mary Jane price list:
1g - 1 high five.
1 oz - 1 signature.
1/4 lb - 1 pair gold pants.
"He didn't want any harm to come on any players or the university or the program or coach Tressel or anyone," Palmer said. "If he's responsible for anything, it's being a quality Ohio State fan."
ENOUGH SAID! Why is OSU such a shit hole!
Hehehehe ... like 200 lbs worth
Or the Negatron bomb will be dropping...
Welcome to Ann Arbor!
What kind of recruit in his right mind would commit to OSU if this is truly what is going to be reported?
You forgot about autographs for weed.
I have no idea if it ever happened, but think about it. You have a guy who runs a tattoo parlor and sells weed. Kids are getting tattoos for autographs.
Now if you are an OSU player, and you dont' like tattoos, then what the hell are you supposed to buy with your autograph?
Say hello to my sexy friend, Mary Jane.
I live in Cleveland and manage a pretty large pro-OSU sales force. One of the more vocal Tressel supporters (initially) had been quiet lately when i sent out my latest "breaking news" emails on tatgate. Usually I get back something along the lines of "everybody does it" or "this is much ado about nothing."
Well when I sent out your four allegations to the sales floor he came into my office the next and said "My brother in law is a Federal Prosecutor in Columbus. I asked him last night if there was any truth to these rumors or was it all internet BS." He then said his brother in law told him "Brian - I cannot discuss the specifics of this mater with you but yes, there is more coming out than you would care to know. A LOT more."
We need a "delicious" moderation tag.
So Hungry for Moar! So HUNGRY FOR MOAR! I have never wished a holiday weekend would go fast but damn, when will it be Tuesday!?
i do want to neg you for using your position of power to harass co workers or employees. this hurts morale, which is the biggest part of productivity and efficiency.
It's good to see you posting, BILG. I remember you from back in the HaloScan days. And of course, I hope you're right.
Does anyone know if the supposed SI article that is coming out on Tuesday will be released only in the print version (and thus we all have to buy the magazine), or if it will be released online?
It'll be on the internet, even if it's not SI that posts it immidiately.
Or at least all the info will be online in minutes
But how is it being released? Because if it is via magazine (print), then wouldn't the information leak out quicker (i.e. as soon as the Post Office and the distributors to bookstores receive the copies)?
No one outside of the offices of SI knows when or how or even if it's being released as far as I can tell. It seems very likely that there is an article but other than that I don't think anyone can say much of anything.
Big scoops at SI (and most other magazines) hit the website first for this very reason. If Tuesday is the real date of release, I'd imagine that is the date the story goes to the printers for the following week's issue.
"If he's responsible for anything, it's being a quality Ohio State fan."
I offerred to buy Navarre and Fat Elvis a drink at a bar one night and they both said no thanks we can't take freebies. I hadn't even thought about that and then felt a little guilty for just offerring it to them.
This guy is giving players money and tats for osu gear and he's guilty of being a "quality" OSU fan?!?! I think a quality fan would have said guys we all know this wouldn't be cool with NCAA so lets forget about it.
I almost peed my pants when I read that line...
