It’s Time For Bond And Moore To Put Up Or Shut Up On The Newton Saga

As Huntsville radio host Scott Moore continues his media tour, dropping allegations and “here’s what I heards” in an effort to drum up cash for his pal John Bond, it might be time for someone to share an old saying with these two:

Put up or shut up.

But before everyone starts accusing this site of being pro- or anti-some school (it’s inevitable), let’s make a couple of things clear before we go any further.

1.  This site has no ties to Auburn.  Personally, I think Cecil Newton is dirty.  I think it’s highly unlikely that his son didn’t know anything about his father’s business dealings.  And I think there’s a helluva lot of smoke around AU’s program for there not to be some sort of fire somewhere.

2.  There is also zero evidence — hard, tangible, could-stand-up-in-a-court-of-law evidence — that Auburn representatives did anything wrong in their pursuit of Cam Newton.  Nothing.  Bupkes.  If the NCAA’s got proof, they’re not acting on it.  If Bond or Kenny Rogers or Bill Bell’s got proof, they’re too busy asking for cash to share it.

3.  College football is a cesspool.  The vast majority of people go about their jobs and careers the right way, I’ll grant you.  But there are enough hangers-on and ne’er-do-wells to ruin the sport for everyone else.  When people ask me why I don’t pull for a college team, I usually give the same response: “If you went through an Oscar Meyer plant, you wouldn’t want to eat a hot dog for a while.”  So I don’t find it at all outrageous that a number of schools might have really offered up cash for Newton.


All that said, Bond is getting dangerously close to Cecil Newton in terms of overall scumminess. 

If the man wants to take a stand for right versus wrong, he should release his tapes to the NCAA and/or to the world.  But by leaking hearsay from his tapes through a second party in order to start a bidding war for them, well, he’s just showing that dollars are his motivation, not right versus wrong.

Cecil Newton tried to make some money for himself.  Bond is trying to make some money for himself.  Cecil Newton tried to sell his son’s football services.  Bond made secret tape recordings of private conversations.  All those acts tend to run together in my view.  In terms of a ballpark, Newton’s sitting squarely at the 50, while Bond’s got tickets down in the end zone.  But they’re both season-ticket holders at I Don’t Trust Ya Field.

And not just because they’re money-grubbers who’ll bend some rules to get the cash they desire, either.

Isn’t it interesting that Moore is making the rounds pushing this story right at the same time HBO is trying to pry Bond’s tapes from him?  It’s as if Moore’s trying to drive up the value while a buyer’s on the lot.  What?  You don’t think Bond or his reps have told HBO the info will cost ‘em?

And is it really a surprise that the tapes — according to Moore — show no evidence of wrongdoing by Mississippi State?  Would anyone really expect a former MSU quarterback and Bulldog booster to share any conversations that might sully State’s good name?  In other words, don’t be surprised if there’s an 18-and-a-half minute gap in Bond’s tapes.  After all, Moore says that MSU officials have told Bond not to get involved in this mess.  If State is 100% in the clear, why wouldn’t the school want Bond’s (or Bell’s or Rogers’) tapes released?  I’m just asking.

And isn’t it an interesting coincidence that Moore’s radio co-host in Huntsville is William Barger, a man who played football at Alabama?  Now Moore’s talking about information that implicates Auburn and Tennessee — Bama’s two biggest rivals — in a pay-for-play scandal.  That’s not a coinydink?

Look, would I be shocked to learn that Auburn or Tennessee offered cash for Newton?  Uh, yeah.  About as shocked as Captain Renauld when he “learned” that there was gambling going on at Rick’s Place.  (See #3 above for my reason.)

But the fact that these folks won’t simply hand over their tapes makes me very, very suspicious of their claims.  Turn over the unedited tapes — and unedited is a key if you want me to believe MSU wasn’t involved — and then I’ll start giving a bit more credence to the claims of Bond and Moore.

Until then, Bond is no different than someone selling a story to The National Enquirer.  And while The Enquirer might buy it, I’m not.  Not until he turns over the goods at least.

Put up or shut up, boys.  Put up or shut up.

This Scott Moore, impersonator or whatever he calls himself these days happens to be one big ole scammer himself!!! He is not to be trusted or believed for one second! Also, it is known that he is a Father of four children all of which he owes back child supoort and he has no contact with not a single one. Pathetic looser!

Do you know Scott Moore? From your coments, apparently you do.. I need to get in touch with someone who can tell me his current whereabouts. I am the mother of one of his children and he is untouchable by the court system as far as collecting child support. I mistakenly asked for my case to be moved to the county that I live in because I have been to court over fifteen times that he didn't show and the time and gas wasted was such a burden. Now three months after requesting the change of venue, I have heard nothing and it is as if the whole case has just vanished fron the system. Please give me any info that may be of help.

RollTdr, I happen to be a mother of one of those children you mentioned, and you hit the nail on the head about him!

I also have a child with Scott Moore. We have a child support hearing on Tues. the 31st. Please contact me at Body-n-sole@hotmail.com. I have messaged you before about a year ago. We probly need to know each other since our children are siblings and we may have information that will help one another.

I think Cecil Newton is dirty, too, but this is probably one of those rare cases where the son corrupts the father. Cameron Newton changed the name on a test to his own. He was willing to let the other kid take an F. He is NOT a nice kid. He says he purchased a stolen laptop. The original arrest record has him breaking and entering. But even so, if he really did buy it, why did he throw it out the window when he found it belonged to someone else. Now he has trashed the Auburn program. Not that it had far down to go to reach the can. He will ruin himself in a couple years.

John Bull (or whatever your real name is) -- You, sir, are pathetic and sad.

Let's put aside for a second the fact that these stories of cheating at UF have been refuted by multiple sources and never substantiated by more than one. But even assuming Cam Newton made whatever mistakes you think he made at UF, let's move on to the main issue: You say, "He is NOT a nice kid." Do you know Cam personally? Have you ever met him? Do you have first-hand knowledge of a single one of the issues you're talking about? No, you don't. You are more slimy than the characters in the tales you're weaving. Why? Because you cloak yourself in the anonymity of the internet and attempt to tear down a person and a school with no foundation whatsoever.

Try this: take a deep breath, step back, look in the mirror, and think about what you're saying and what you're basing it on. Consider the value you contribute to society by maligning someone's character on a blog when you have no basis in fact to do so. Your propaganda efforts may be effective at reinforcing the biases of some people, but they are truly a sign of weakness and lack of character that I hope one day you will understand. You need to realize that for you to presume to know that Cam "is not a nice kid" makes you look both self-righteous and moronic.

I would recommend that you go sit in a corner and think about the foregoing.

The fact that Cam Newton could not have been shopped without the kid knowing is about as likely as it is that the Camster stole computers and cheated on tests. You lie with pigs and whores and you get fleas and Herpes.

Well you don't know what NCAA has and what it doesn't. Bond is just warning the NCAA what will happen if they give this outlaw school another pass.

And your proof that Bond is trying to sell the Newton tapes is??

dawgmatic...

No proof. Just the fact that he hasn't released the tapes for some reason... and when asked why not, his friend Moore went into a speech about how valuable the tapes are. Oh, and HBO would like to get their hands on them for their SEC expose.

Proof? No. But 2+2+2 sure looks like 6 to me.

I suppose with Orgeron in the mix anything was possible, but it does not seem likely that TN was courting Newton during the timeline we are talking about here. Matt Simms had long been the plan. By all accounts they had stopped recruiting Newton long before these events took place for a variety of reasons including that their OC didn't want him. It also now appears that Kiffin had conversations with USC long before he was hired (looks like we now know how Seantrel Henderson managed to get a release from USC... wink, wink). Not sure he would put forth the effort or take the risk when he may have well known at this time he would not be the coach at TN the following season. It's seems more likely that Tennessee was mentioned just because they were on the long list, and Cecil was just using the oldest negotiating trick in the book.

its very telling that the only people who have publicly claimed to hear the tapes are two huge bama homers who just got a radio show in Huntsville about two weeks ago. For the bama and msu fans, its a no lose lie. If something happens, you were right all along. If its bs, you can say you heard the tapes and the ncaa is clearly suppressing the evidence and its protecting AU. Either way, you drum up ratings for a silly bama radio show.

As I commented on the other story, I've lived in Hunstville several years now and listen to sports radio almost everyday....never heard of Scott Moore. And if he has a show in HSV, it must be below poodunk if it gets less play than 730am(The Ump). Sports radio in Huntsville sucks, it makes sense that this market would be the market for a boozo to get an easy job.
