    Obviously the Riders overpaid him if he can afford a $35M home.

      I wonder if Aquilini will still want Sidoo as part of his potential ownership bid of the Lions ?

      LOL that he had to pay someone to take his kid's SAT's.

          Back when I took the SAT it was a pretty easy test. I think I was even hungover taking that sumbeetch.

            Would you go to jail for this sort of thing or just pay a big fine ?

              So do all the kids of the guilty parties get expelled now?

                So he paid money to do whatever it took to get his kids into a US school, foregoing his alma matter which he donated to and named their football stadium after him. Not sure why his lawyer figures that philanthropic donations in the past are relevant. People are capable of doing both good and bad things.

                  Wasn't UBC good enough for his kids? Or could they not get in with their marks?

                    Agreed. Many people do philanthropic deeds in order to cover up or distract from their illegal/immoral activities.

                      Was just reading on this case, but different people. they mentioned dozens of others that would follow, so it is interesting to start seeing the fallout. The people behind it all have warrants for mail fraud.

                      the one person made a 500k "donation"


                      I actually don't care about direct donations maybe buying a kid in. It is a few students here and there and huge benefit to the schools. This scheme is entirely something else.

                        Except it means a smart kid who would have got in is now out of luck. Itís flat out disgusting, and I hope they all pay the maximum price.

                          Or more likely that entrant 25000 who was the last spot getting in was made 25001 and missed the cut. If someone is making massive donations to a school and it looks favorably for their kid, I am more than fine with that.

                            Based on his real estate success this seems to be a clear case of buying what he wants when his kid couldn't get a good enough score honestly.

                              All I can say to that is wow. Iím so not down with people buying their way in at the expense of others.
