Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News tried to get the other side of the story before publishing his story regarding the failure of Eagles running back LeSean McCoy to show up for a paid autograph session. Now that the story has been published, the other side of the story is emerging.
McCoy’s brother, LeRon, told Domowitch that the advance paid to LeSean is “ready to be returned.” LeRon McCoy said they delayed refunding the money because they feared that Bentley’s, the restaurant and nightclub that organized the event, would sue in an effort to “get more money than they sent. . . . [W]e also think [LeSean's] April 2 appearance [at another Wilkes-Barre area location] helped prompt this attack, seeing as how we are dealing with competition.”
LeRon McCoy had more to say. But none of it changes the fact that LeSean failed to show up. Even though the advance is being returned, Bentley’s can still sue for any damages suffered by McCoy’s failure to perform his duties under the arrangement.
