    I think that's the most likely result - a plea deal, likely for very little jail time. Maybe 5 years or less.

    You've got it flipped. It's about 95%

    And I doubt he'd plead guilty to all the charges. Typically you don't plead guilty to everything, just some of them

    Probably gets off, convinces some that he is completely reformed and ends up doing a show with Deace

    How in the hell can some skumbag get that many people to give him so much money? Why would Toyota of DSM pay him that much to do his show there?

    I met him once when I was working at a magazine in DSM out of college. I couldn't believe how he did it, either. A couple guys I worked with knew him better than me, and though I don't believe they ever actually did business with him, they said you'd be shocked at just how good he was at getting people to buy in to whatever he was selling.

    Can’t be any better than the “Magazines for kids” gals that come through my neighborhood once in awhile.

    It always amazes me how some people will work so hard to criminally con innocent people when they have abilities that would allow them to be easily successful in any number of honest occupations.

    I just don't get it.

    This one is teetering on falling into the cave, just needs a good push.

    My reaction to him from the start was that if he was this great broadcaster with ESPN connections, why was he broadcasting on a 400 watt station in Des Moines, IA?

    But I actually never heard his show. My knowledge strictly comes from what people have said about him here.

    I realize now why I could never follow his shows. The line of content/advertising/scamming was completely blurred.

    And his takes weren't good. They were just hot to make the phone lines light up.
    Deace is a douche, but knows college football.
    Marty is a douche, that doesn't know college football.

    "I don't think he ever really intended to defraud people out of so much".


    You are worse then he is, letting those words come out of your mouth.
