Dave: It’s even better than lying. What could Richardson possibly be saying when he claims, “I had been told by various scouts that I would be drafted if I signed.” What in heck is that supposed to mean? If you sign with a team, that precludes your being drafted. The normal (sane) procedure is that you’re drafted and then sign. The other way around is an impossibility. A Clinton lawyer might claim that what Richardson meant is that the scounts were telling him he’d be drafted if he signed with them. But scouts aren’t agents. Maybe Richardson learned to talk that way during his trips to North Korea.
