    Barney could not be reached for comment on Friday, but her attorney said she herself was conned by Schlicter.

    The attorney said that Schlicter, 50, took advantage of Barney's sympathy for his gambling problem and eventually loaned him money. Then, the attorney said, Schlichter convinced her that the only way she would get the money back was if she helped him raise money for sports tickets.

    "Anita is without question the victim of a massive crime," the attorney said.
    Schlicter, a former Buckeye great and an admitted gambling addict who served time in prison for fraud and forgery, confirmed to the Columbus Dispatch that he was going to meet with law enforcement.

    So the crutch -excuse word went from I have a disease to my addiction is the cause of me ripping off people for gambling money.When you say gambling is a disease you have, it's like you caught the virus like a cold where it's through no fault of your own.When you say it's your addiction that's the cause of it,it's like suddenly this siamese twin-growth appeared on your body one day and it caused you to go down the wrong path.In plain terms,why not just say I'm a selfish uncaring A-hole that knows exactly what I'm doing and will do anything to acquire money to gamble with because I chose to do so.If you hear anyone ever say problem gambling is a disease or it's your addiction that caused you to ruin others and your life it's a jive,turkey,snowjob,BS pile of crap copout.Just like someone saying I made a bad decision or bad choice is deflecting responsibility and taking 100% blame when they chose to do something awful that hurt people.A-hole looting conment always use double speak.Bill Clinton is the founding member of this hall of fame.He was Rhodes schollar and didn't know what the word is is and made himself believe that getting a BJ didn't fall into the category of having sex.The sad thing is,people want to make people out to be their false god heroes where they believe them.

    He's an idiot that had everything handed to him since he was 12 years old.
    Everybody looked the other way when he did something wrong since he was in Junior HS because he is 'gifted'.
    Happens all the time to HS athletes that are in a class of their own, they do something wrong, parents, teachers etc. etc. look the other way.
    Not blaming society though, he should know right from wrong regardless

    Talk about throwing your life away. This guy had the world in his hands, and parlayed it into nothing.
