    Report: Tahj Boyd is a degenerate gambler (just like us!)

    Bunch of different sources reporting this, but they're all repeating the same story and none of the sources are ones I would consider terribly reliable, but it's certainly worth keeping an eye on. Guy lost $80k on the NFL. That's even worse than the season I'm having! http://ibnsportswrap.com/article.php?articleID=1144

    If he bet on himself he should be held out in a very positive light.

    Nothing wrong with betting on yourself.

    NFL teams? Who cares?

    If this were true, it would be blasted, right?

    was my first question.. says the books give him a credit because he stands to make a lot of money when he signs. If this turns out to be true, i'd be vary wary to sign him if i'm an NFL GM. People will do some crazy stuff to get outa debt.

    my next question was... did he throw the Clemson game? I like to think no but with this report you can't help but ask the question

    Or letting him get in the whole big, so something like Thursday could happen.

    If you are going to the bigs for sure then you take insurance that you won't get a career ending injury during college/ walking down the street etc...plus you could borrow mad cash against your projected future earnings.

    The NFL is terrified of something like this. Now I'm not saying it's true, but imagine if it was and he went to the NFL. Look at all the "NFL is fixed!" conspiracy theorists we see after a day like yesterday. Now imagine them if a guy with a gambling problem threw a late INT or something like that.

    Don't know why this is news.
    99% of all first rounders are in debt like this by the time they are drafted.
    Who cares.

    Being in debt because you took your homies to the strip club is one thing. Racking up $80k in sports gambling debts is something else entirely.

    What I take from this ... someone wanted to get their website more hits by posting this. Whether it's true or not, who knows ... but now that someone put the word out all the schleps at ESPN and other places will be mentioning this other site by name in quoting the report if they do carry the story. Given how flimsy the reporting/stores are on ESPN and other places, I would book it.

    I hope you guys really aren't all this gullible. The troll is strong..

    What kind of proof is a tweet stating the same exact claim as the article, from a source that has no credibility and is probably owned by the website itself?

    I agree the sources were unreliable. But I still think it is worth keeping an eye on.

    definitely think the story is suspicious and could very well be false. still, if there are even small rumors about it any NFL team interested in him will do their homework before they draft him. Those guys are better than the FBI, could find out and where you did it the first time if they wanted to. They may keep it under wraps even if they do find out but they will get to the bottom of it.

    Every time he plays against NC State he has played like he was throwing the game. He's getting paid early. This is my observation only. No proof.
