This looks really really bad. Taping Cowherd's show. I'd strongly get the podcast if you're not taping. Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports talking about this now.

Of course the denial that makes no sense: http://espn.go.com/college-football/sto ... i-athletes
Yahoo! Sports reported that players got cash and benefits through Shapiro's partner, former NFL agent and current UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue.

Reached Tuesday by The Associated Press, Huyghue denied that story.

"It's just fantasy," Huyghue said. "He never had any role in my company."

Huyghue said he signed three Miami players in seven years. He said Shapiro was not a runner and he did not represent any players, but did invest $1.5 million in his agency in 2001 and that the two spoke only occasionally.

"He didn't have the acumen to represent players," Huyghue said.
So Shapiro didn't have a role in Huyghue's company but gave him $1.5 million and spoke only occassionally? I loan my brother $50 and I'm always on his case to pay it back.

Sounds like Huyghue doesn't have the acumen to lie. :)

Who links stories involving minor league sports?

To each his own.
