Former Auburn Tigers football player Junior Rosegreen has alleged Stanley McClover was paid $20,000 by HBO for appearing in its Real Sports show on pay-for-play in college football, in which McClover made all sorts of allegations against the program. Teammates and coaches have spoken out against McClover's role in the show, but Rosegreen's charge against HBO is something else.
Rosegreen, to AuburnSports.com:
HBO gave him $20,000. He told (Dillard) Coach Herman Lovett that HBO paid him $20,000 for the interview.
Wednesday, Sports By Brooks tweeted:
An HBO official told my this morning, for the fourth time, "We would not and do not pay for interviews."
Andrea Kremer has also claimed HBO does not pay for interviews. I'll leave it up to you as to which side you'll choose to believe. Of course, there's always the possibility that McClover just likes going around alleging every entity with which he comes in contact of having paid him.
