Cindy George of the Houston Chronicle reports Buffalo Bills quarterback Vince Young is suing his former manager and former financial agent for various financial transgressions.
I'll let ProFootballTalk.com patriarch Mike Florio -- an erstwhile attorney -- explain the accusations:
The civil complaint accuses Major Adams, Ronnie T. People and Peoples Financial services of a variety of violations, including fraud, usury (i.e., charging excessive interest rates), breach of fiduciary duty (i.e., screwing someone they had an obligation to protect), conversion (i.e., taking his money and treating it as their own), and breach of contract (i.e., um, breach of contract).
And here's the power of celebrity.
As of 11 a.m., a backup Bills quarterback's lawsuit is the No. 1 trending NFL story and the No. 4 overall sports story at SportingNews.com. The only topics ahead of Young are the Jerry Sandusky trial, the manhunt for the Auburn killer and Chad Ochocinco signing with the Miami Dolphins.
I doubt Ruvell Martin would get this kind of attention if he sued his agent.
