    This is where guys like this need to just give money in the form of foundations to help run the athletic programs for a city or an area. They, and most people they know, aren't going to have the first clue how to run a school, even if the intentions are honest(which it doesn't sound like this was).

    Disagree. From what I saw, Deion, anyway, was just....ignorant of the situation.

    ....and that is what he did. I can't imagine anyone would believe he had anything to do with curriculum, administration, etc. He is a figurehead/donor. The guy who ran the place (headmaster/principal) is the crook/idiot.

    The biggest issue with this is that they messed with kids ability to continue on to college.

    It's one thing to fuck up one year of education, but to mess with their college eligibility is a major issue!

    Yeah they are winning some appeals, but those take time. Probalby money they don't have.

    This is a shame.

    What celebrities know is that you put your name on something, you best not be ignorant. This is Deon's fault. It's not like he just gave them money to fund the school.

    He was the poster boy, and using his name brought the kids. So he should have known better. I can't think of any decent celebrity that would throw their name onto something without monitoring it better.

    After all, this isn't a gatorade commercial. This is a school that GREATLY benefited from Deon's name/image.

    Deon is no saint in this. While he may have wanted better intensions for the school, he still was a "snake". Wallace is like 60% at fault, while Deon is 40%.

    Ya Neon wanting 120K to be the "HNIC" b/c his name was on the school and that's what Wallace was getting shows he was hardly innocent in this.

    Wallace was the real issue, but Neon is doing his best to scapegoat him.

    I agree. Im sure Deion's heart was in the right place...to found a prep school to help athletic kids prepare for college as athletes, but he had no clue how to do it properly, who to hire, etc. Shouldve just helped other foundations.
