Report: Deion Sanders sued for fraud

Former NFL cornerback Deion Sanders, presumably a first-ballot Hall of Famer, has leveraged his “Prime Time” nickname into a cottage industry.

But one specific branch of the “Prime Time” tree has gotten Sanders sued.

According to CourthouseNews.com, a lawsuit has been filed in Texas against Sanders and others alleging false and deceptive business practices, fraud and negligence.  The plaintiffs, investors in a venture called PrimeTimePlayer Pages, claim that Sanders and others raised money to publish a newsletter that would be sent to more than 500 colleges, touting featured student-athletes.

The only problem?  Per the complaint, not a single school received the publication.  A basketball edition of the publication allegedly was never even created. 

For now, these are only allegations, based apparently on the specific contentions contained in the complaint.  Sanders and the other defendants will have a right to respond to the claims in court.

    Sue Dieon for everything he has! When he goes into HOF, does he go in as a Raven or Falcon?

    On a related note, the Baltimore Ravens are suing Sanders for theft in relation to his salary for the 2005 season.

    Dion goes in as a 49er… wait… Cowboy…. wait… Braves… wait Yankees…. wait Reds…wait ___ fill in the blank.
    He’s a ME guy because he played for too many teams for anyone to really give a shit.

    Man, I hope you geniuses don’t get selected for jury duty. Have you ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? How many frivolous lawsuits have been filed against wealthy people?
    Don’t just assume he’s guilty because you’re jealous of his athletic abilities or his bank account.

    NFL players don’t go into the HOF as a member of any team. the bust doesn’t have a helmet. you’re confusing it with the beautiful game. and why wouldn’t you mention the 49ers or dallas where he actually won?

    saw peon play the saints in the dome years ago. a running play to the opposite side of the field was called, and he just stood there talking to the ref on that side … classic diva.
