So, a college athlete whose built-up hype makes it seem as if he would have a great professional career ahead misrepresents to a couple of fledgling sports agents that he’ll sign with their new company for future representation, and over the course of the next couple of years, accepts several hundred thousand dollars worth of cash, property, and other benefits from them, and then in breach of their agreement, goes elsewhere for representation. This certainly sounds like fraud, and likely a few other crimes as well, such as extortion, blackmail, grand theft, and the list goes on. Over the course of the next few years, the discovery of his conduct shames his university and causes them to lose millions of dollars and what little prestige they have, and he becomes one of the most disgraced athletes in history, and the only college football player ever to be forced to return a Heisman trophy. Meanwhile, he uses his newfound but totally undeserved pro income to finance years of legal maneuvering to delay litigation and delay repayment of the hundreds of thousands of dollars he gleefully accepted as an amateur athlete.
Despite every knowledgable football fan knowing that he is a mediocre professional player, as well as a despicable, dishonest, amoral person, the geniuses at Pizza Hut decide to feature him in a widely aired TV commercial.
