Deion Sanders Defends Prime Prep By Promising Lawsuit, Calling Brett Shipp an "African American Killer"

Categories: Sports

This morning, Deion Sanders took to 105.3 The Fan for a rare discussion of allegations that he's been improperly recruiting athletes (e.g. a good chunk of state champion Grace Prep's basketball team) to play at Prime Prep Academy.

This was not a nuanced argument that UIL rules governing high school athletics are arcane and outdated and could use some tweaks. Instead, this was Deion claiming he's being persecuted for being Deion.

"I didn't recruit," he said. "I didn't need to." Players chose to go to Prime Prep on their own accord, he said, like those players from Grace Prep whose families grew tired of paying $10,000 per year in tuition. The committee of DISD coaches and administrators that makes eligibility decisions is simply scared, or jealous, or both. As for why they might feel that way: "I promote change. I shed light on right. I shed light on positivity."

That's the same reason that a certain caucasian reporter from WFAA *cough* Brett Shipp *cough* -- that and the fact that he hates black people or, in Deion's words, is "an African American killer" who "always has something against a brother."

The segment ended with Deion promising a lawsuit, seemingly against DISD.

"If you're dirty and you're in DISD, you better clean up your drawers," he said.

Don't say you haven't been warned.

And how do you argue beyond a reasonable doubt that these students left their expensive private schools for a free school but.....it was for athletic purposes only. This is sad the true victims here are the kids and the adults who are withholding them back from enjoying their true passion. This is one of the reasons why our education system is so bad: Adults and their ego's and the political red tape that exists within our schools and in organizations like the UIL as well. So sad....

So sad to see all these ppl on here commenting ignorant of the true essence of what is really going on. Southlake Carrol does this every year..guaranteed. This is the state of Friday night Lights yet we would rather focus on first time prep schools than these powerhouses that consisitently get away year after year with the same recruiting. Its Texas...this is what schools do.

Basically Deion begs people to notice him, but then gets pissed when people notice when he breaks the rules. Deion thinks he is the reason that the UIL is doing this, not entirely, he is just the reason they got caught. He complains that DISD is just of him. Maybe true, however if you do something wrong and you have pissed someone off, they will probably tell on you. He is such an egomaniac, that he doesn't realize that he could get away with a lot, if he wasn't always trying to draw attention to himself.

Shut up Deion, you come across as a buffoon when you speak!  

 

ps-Only hall of fame talent can get you a tv job when you barely know how to speak. But boy, could he shut down one side!

Let's be honest. Deion Sanders was a uniquely talented football player and has the championship rings to prove his ability.

 

But Deion has no degree in education (or any degree at all), no teaching or administrative experience, and no business running a school. So why did he start the school? In my opinion, I believe he jumped into this venture for self promotion, a reality TV series he apparently lost when his star players were largely ruled ineligible, and possibly to steer the star athletes in directions he chooses.

PrimeTime only thought he was going to come into that district  an be Main News Football team.

That white man has pulling the sheets back on everything sports at DISD.  Prime Prep just stepped in the wasps nest.  And if Deion wants to be mad, be mad at the UIL who ruled your players ineligible.

That is absolutely correct, no high school football athlete with any hope of playing at the college level is ever going to even consider going to a school with a football program run by a former NFL star whose accomplishments as an NFL player are widely regarded as being nothing short of spectacular .... that's right, no way, no how .... not even going to think about it ... Yes sir that there is definitely a no-brainer ....

Is anyone else sick of the never ending avalanche of bullshit and problems caused by blacks?

 @informedED If attending a quality school for free was the "real" reason all of these students left their former schools to enroll at Prime Prep, why all of the angst about athletics? Those students are going to get the best free education a Deion Sanders managed school can deliver. A quality education for these students is your primary concern, right?

 

If you have any proof that Southlake Carroll (or any pother school) recruits athletes, by all means send your proof to the UIL or Brett Shipp, and let's get their titles vacated. Do you honestly believe the coaches in Dist. 4-5A don't investigate Carroll every year looking for recruiting violations?

@plfarmer You have to make a really good case that the decision was non-athletic. Jesuit can make a case, a first year school cannot.

 @plfarmer He can. But the players have to sit out of varsity sports for a year just like anyone else recruited for athletic reasons.
