Ryan Braun’s Friend Suing Him, Says Braun Has Been on PEDs since College


MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Milwaukee Brewers

I thought it was BROS before PEDs?

If you believe Ryan Braun’s “Friend” he has made millions by cheating for years (smart man in my opinion) and now the friend wants to be paid for helping him out.

Ralph Sasson, 29, makes a number of personal accusations against Braun, saying in the lawsuit that Braun doped through his years at the University of Miami, committed academic fraud and accepted money while a student.

Sasson, who describes himself as a law student, says he was contacted by Braun’s agent, Nez Balelo, in November 2011 after Braun was notified that he had tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone. Part of his assignment, the lawsuit says, was to conduct background research on the man who collected Braun’s urine sample, Dino Laurenzi Jr.

The lawsuit says Sasson was forced to threaten Braun and Balelo with a lawsuit in order to recover $5,000 that he says was promised, and that he was paid last year when he agreed to sign a non-disclosure agreement. But Sasson charges that Braun violated that agreement when he made what Sasson calls defamatory statements about him to undisclosed parties. Sasson asks for unspecified damages in the complaint.

Sasson also said Braun asked him to prank call ESPN “Outside of the Lines”.

You can’t make this stuff up.
