Clothier Albetar Gives “No Comment” When Asked About Ties To Bama

Yesterday, when asked to comment on the cease-and-desist letter he received from Alabama, Tuscaloosa clothier Tom Albetar told reporters, “I can’t talk to you.”  Pressed further, he let loose a “no comment.”

Izzy Gould of al.com notes that at Albetar’s menswear store a sticker has been placed on the front door stating: “Bama Memorabilia; DISPLAY ONLY; NOT FOR SALE.”

According to a source, Gould reports that the school did not file a report with the SEC or NCAA upon initial investigation late last year and still has not done so.  Meaning the school believes it is in the clear.

That won’t stop the questions from coming.  Kevin Scarbinsky of al.com writes that “this story seems a long way from a conclusion.”

“Why did so many Alabama players, from Tyrone Prothro to Terrence Cody, sign so much stuff, from jerseys to helmets to gloves to photos, for Albetar,” asks the columnist.

Tide fans dismiss the situation and ask for proof.  Funny, when Auburn dismissed accusation after accusation regarding Cam Newton, many Bama fans weren’t worried about waiting for proof. 

We’ll open ourselves up to ugliness from both fanbases later today when we tell you why the Iron Bowl rivalry is flat-out bad for the SEC.

Until then, we await the next shoe — or suit — to drop in the UA/AU War.
