Ex-OSU Quarterback Art Schlichter, Probed in Alleged Sports Ticket Scheme

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Art Schlichter the former Ohio State All-American quarterback is being investigated for his role in an alleged sports ticket scheme.  According to CBS affiliate WBNS the scheme milked people out of millions of dollars.

Schlichter and Anita Barney, a Dublin woman whose husband was a co-founder of the Wendy’s restaurant chain, allegedly promised sports fans hundreds of thousands of dollars in sporting event tickets but never delivered according to sources.  Barney was reported to have taken money for tickets to various events, including the Ohio State-Michigan game and this weekend’s Super Bowl, but failed to produce the tickets.

Barney, who could not be reached for comment is accused of writing bad checks to cover the debts.  The attorney said that Schlicter, 50, took advantage of Barney’s sympathy for his gambling problem and eventually loaned him money. Then, the attorney said, Schlichter convinced her that the only way she would get the money back was if she helped him raise money for sports tickets.

“Anita is without question the victim of a massive crime,” the attorney said.

Schlicter, a former Buckeye great and admitted gambling addict who served time in prison for fraud and forgery, confirmed to The Columbus Dispatch that he was going to meet with law enforcement.

In a text message, Schlicter wrote that “it will help a lot of people and “this addiction is a [expletive].”

According to the paper, Schlicter has served time in 44 prisons or jails since 1994. He was drafted by the then-Baltimore Colts in 1982, but his gambling problem ruined his professional prospects.

    Ochocinco Naked for PETA and Engaged!

    Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

    NFL superstar Chad Ochocino not only hates fur, but confirmed today he was off the market by announcing his engagement this morning.

    Us Magazine reports:

    He announced that he is engaged to model Evelyn Lozada on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show Tuesday.
    “Yeah, man … It’s time for me to sit down,” he said after being asked about the rumors. “Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know, my days are over.”
    He said he knows Lozada — who’s been sporting a 10-carat ring from Jason Beverly Hills — was The One.

    He goes on that he normally doesn’t endorse marriage whatever that means.  Still, considering this is a man who suggested dating “a black dude” would cure Lindsay Lohan, we have to assume he doesn’t really think much before he opens his mouth to speak.

    Ochocinco is Engaged. Also, Naked.

    Chad Ochocinco Nude PETA

    I’m all kinds of confusing today.

    In a double-whammy to Kim Kardashian, NFL superstar Chad Ochocinco not only hates fur, but just took himself off the market by announcing his engagement this morning. Us Magazine reports:

    He announced that he is engaged to model Evelyn Lozada on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show Tuesday.
    “Yeah, man … It’s time for me to sit down,” he said after being asked about the rumors. “Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know, my days are over.”
    He said he knows Lozada — who’s been sporting a 10-carat ring from Jason Beverly Hills — was The One.

    Normally, I don’t endorse marriage, but considering this is a man who wisely suggested dating “a black dude” would cure Lindsay Lohan, I’m going to assume he knows what he’s doing. Clearly, a higher mind is at work here.

    Eva Longoria and Tony Parker Divorce!

    Thursday, November 18th, 2010

    According to reports the divorce between Eva Longoria and Tony Parker was in the works for at least a week before Eva filed.

    Tony denies he ever had sex with an ex-teammate’s wife although he is said to have had a “sexting relationship” with Erin Barry, estranged wife of former San Antonio Spur Brent Barry.  Sources insist, “They never had a physical relationship,”  and that the sexting ended months ago.

    Eva not only knew that she was filing for divorce but timed it to coincide with the Us Weekly interview.

    As for why Tony and Eva are telling different stories about the divorce, a close friend of Tony’s says it’s simple:  “She was into the whole PR thing.  He wasn’t.”

    Eva’s people say Tony’s story is untrue and that “Eva and Tony were still talking about working out the marriage up until the morning she filed.”

    Longoria filed her papers, to divorce Tony Parker , in L.A. County Superior Court citing  “irreconcilable differences.”

    Longoria checked the box which says “Spousal support payable to [Longoria].   If Eva gets her way, she pays her lawyers and Tony pays for his.”

    Host Mario Lopez claims Eva has confirmed to him that she found hundreds of text messages from another woman on Parker’s phone.

    Eva just tweeted, “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness.”

    There are allegations that Cam Newton was trying to solicit a big pay day from colleges to lure him there when he was looking to transfer from Florida.  But as everyone is aware apart from the star Quarterback that’s a big no-no in college ball.

    As a result of the alleged pay offs Cam is being investigated.  He isn’t the only one however, the NCAA requested financial statements from Cam’s dad the Pastor Cecil Newton, including bank statements and records from his church that has just had a big overhaul.

    The NCAA refused to comment on why they requested the financial records of the church or if there is an investigation.

    All does not look good for Cam, what with his arrest a couple year ago and now this, his Heisman dreams may never be realized.

He’s a fighter… As I talked to our team, we’re just going to believe that Eric LeGrand is going to walk onto that field again with us. That’s what we believe. We’ll see with the speed of which that happens.”
