Nevin Shapiro Can Kiss My Ass UPDATED

Categories: Luke's Gospel
lukesgospel.jpg
Nevin Shapiro wishes he could wear my shorts for one day. The New Jersey-born Napoleon dubbed himself "Little Luke" in a so-called investigative report by Yahoo! Sports claiming all sorts of corrupt shit Shapiro committed while he was a booster of the University of Miami athletics program.

The claims even include hooking up football players with prostitutes and buying them bottles at Mansion. That punk could never be me. (Update: On Thursday, Luke called the NCAA "modern-day slavery.")

First of all, I have never been a UM booster. I have never given a dime to the school. I have and always will support the players and the program out of civic pride, but I never violated any NCAA rules when I was the team's biggest fan in the '80s. And I definitely would not have ever paid for a stripper to abort a baby allegedly fathered by a UM football player, like Shapiro claims he did.

You can't be me just by reading a Dan Le Batard article in the Miami Herald from 21 years ago alleging I paid players for hits on the field. The NCAA investigated those accusations and found no wrongdoing on my part. This notion that I was paying players is false. It never happened.

If Nevin really wanted people to see him as "Little Luke," he would have dedicated part of his life to helping kids in Miami's inner-city neighborhoods get a college education. He certainly never started a youth athletic program that has been around for more than 30 years helping underprivileged parents in Liberty City mold their children.

It has never been about money for me. It has always been about community service. That's what being Uncle Luke is really about.

Read more in our December 2010 feature, "Nevin Shapiro: Miami's Caligula."

Shapiro is nothing more than a jilted groupie who fucked over a lot people. He is an opportunistic schemer who now wants to play the role of jailhouse snitch. His word isn't worth squat, especially if Yahoo! paid him for the exclusive. Nevin is angry because he couldn't get former players to invest in his Ponzi scheme or come to his rescue when his criminal enterprise was exposed.

I always had a feeling Shapiro was a sketchy motherfucker. I could see right through him two minutes into our first conversation. During one of our meetings, he was trying to get me to be a part of his sports agency because he knew I work with all the kids in the inner city playing football. He also complained that the former players didn't want to invest in his food business after he had bought jerseys and memorabilia to support the program.

He was all about himself. Shapiro wanted to use me like he was using the UM players and other celebrity athletes he courted. I knew to stay away from him. So did Randy Shannon, who warned all of his assistants that if he caught them with Shapiro, he would fire them. Randy hated that beady-eyed defamer. Surprisingly, Shannon's name was conspicuously absent in Yahoo!'s breathtaking 11-month investigation.

The NCAA shouldn't even waste any gas money on this guy. But the investigators have to do their due diligence. In the meantime, every UM fan should send a letter to Shapiro's prison warden and insist he remain in the general population.

Luke is a straight up pussy and a liar. Just admit it Luke, you put bounties on players who you knew the Canes couldn't handle. It was hilarious when he put a bounty on Tony Rice. Even funnier when he tried to do it to The Rocket.  Didn't have much to say except to run behind his bodyguards when Zorich and Stonebreaker called him on it. Shapiro is a sissy, but don't think for a moment that old Luke wouldn't be the cell wife if he went to jail.

How many people remember the U going to Texas and being discriminated against.  The U brought the world into Miami and showed how inner city kids could play football despite all the discrimination.

Only problem with your rant is you dismiss the guy as not credible even though he has a paper trail miles long. Doesn't look good for Miami.

Just watch "The U" and see Luke being interviewed with the wink, wink, "I never paid players". Miami should get the Death Penalty because of people like Luke Campbell being allowed to "support" the players with $, etc.  The only difference betweem Luke and Litlle Luke is that one is in jail right now and the other is out running for political office.  Again, just watch the "U" and you realize, that whatever the U gets in the way of punishment, its not enough.

Nevin Shapiro seems to be a nerd on a rampage. Maybe he wasn't a very cool guy when he was in college and high school so he got money wise like many uncool kids do but then he made a huge mistake and used his talents for evil rather than good. What happened next could have been predicted, this guy gained celebrity status by spending millions and enticing college kids with his gifts of lavishness and luxury. In reality he was just an old man trying to be the cool kid, you know, that kid that everyone says "hey there's a party at so and so's house after the game!! everyone's goin!". Yet, to put it simply, Nevin Shapiro is a crook.  Having had run ins with the law myself I dont usually like to knock a guy who's down on his luck. My two favorite players in the NFL right now are Plaxico Burress and Mike Vick because I would love to see either one of them bounce back strong from a tough break. But what Shapiro did was just evil. He took other people's money and used it to fund his lavish lifestyle and literally try and become a Miami Hurricane. But a real fan would not behave this way. No matter how angry or scorned you feel, real fans don't lash out against the team they love, no matter how bad you feel they let you down, just look at the Dallas Cowboys fans (just kidding). But seriously, nobody who has a general love for a team would act like this, this seems to be the desperate attempt of a man who has found his back against the wall trying to weasel his way back into the spot light. Maybe he feels that by admitting he was an overgrown kid it will redeem him from the millions he robbed from others, who knows. One thing that is known is that Nevin Shapiro is definitely just a beaten nerd on a rampage. Don't drop the soap buddy!

Uncle Luke- you're right Shapiro is a scumbag, but there's no denying the evidence.

I usually don't hang out with people that I "see right through", let alone in their VIP box.  Luke, the washed up rapper, your a hypocrite and a racist.  Shapiro burned a whole lot of people, no doubt about it, but get off your soapbox.  Your nothing more than a pot stirrer that feeds off the inner city poor with your misleading statements and racist, hatred filled articles.  Yet while trying to come across as the mediator and middle-man of the "white mans world."  You may want to tone down your column before some of your skeletons come out of the closet.  After all you have very big closets right....

Does Luke really expect us to believe that he never gave the players money ? Nigga please.

Persecute those that are guilty and move on. Make an example of those who are responsible for the misconduct to dissuade any future offenders. But taking it away from all of the innocent kids and the coaches (and not to mention THE FANS) is overkill. Shalala needs to step up and kick some ass, and get that thug mentality nonsense out of these kids. You're a celebrity when you play for the U. Your chances of making it to the NFL and being a PROFESSIONAL are greater as a Cane than any other NCAA program. Fact. So instead of spinning this "It's a Canes thing" to make it what you want it to be, embrace an old motivational cliche like "Act as if." BTW, Gators fans, Noles fans, got five? Didn't think so.

As you mentioned above, Shapiro is an opportunist without a backbone.  He's a misguided soul who longs to be anyone else other then himself.  Say whatever you want to say about Mr. Campbell's past, he is a community leader.  Yahoo should be ashamed of themselves for promoting such a loathsome criminal on a pedestal.

I can vouch for Luke's commitment to helping kids in Liberty City.  About 20 or so years ago when I played Pop Warner football for South Miami, Luke was ALWAYS on the sideline cheering on the LC kids when we played against them.

Right on Luther Campbell.  I get so sick of America's penchant for paying homage to jilted "snitches."  When I was growing up it was always assumed that the person who got caught had an axe to grind and hence...was of suspect character.  But today, the reality of what these same people say is taken as gospel!  And not just in sports, but in criminal conspiracies, politics, you name it.  We really need to examine the logic of treating these characters as if they're credible.

All you people commenting here, go to the Yahoo article, read it and make your own conclusions. While you are there, enjoy the photo gallery including photo 11 where a smiling Luther Campbell is shown with Shapiro in his Dolphin stadium luxury suite. Presumably some time after Uncle Luke "saw right through him."

Way to play the race card.... the NCAA has disregarded everything that came up with the U for the last 20 years, and i'm sure there was more than we'll ever know about. so shut the fuck up it has nothing to do with race you moron.

Sanchez, I agree with you except on one point..."Uncle Luke" (like all other con's who suddenly get religion) didn't 'see right through him' until immediately after Nevin was convicted and sent to prison.

Tell that to all the haters/gaytors on here spouting racist rhetoric.......although I don't think it has to do with race, but race permeates all these issues so it's unavoidable....but ur probably white so I can't convince U otherwise.
