The scheme described by reporters states that players were receiving side payments from third party/numbered companies to avoid cap hits.
If true, this implicates the Wetenhall’s far more than Kavis who was just the “clerk” in making these side deals. Surely no one believes Kavis was taking his paycheck and redistributing it to players :o
Reporters claim that players complained to the league. Well, that would make sense since when the Wetenhall’s bailed on the team, these side payments would have stopped coming in.
Reporters claim that these side payments were made to “long-time players” of the team who would then hand the recipients with their money.
That would implicate a number of players in the fraud.
If all this is true and I suspect it is, the scheme was in place long before Kavis. Keep an eye out on Jim Popp’s fortunes in the coming weeks.
