Hells Angels buy all Cycles at Walmart

http://bikerspost.com/forums/topic/1...les-at-walmart

Quote:
Hells Angels members in Fresno, California, had their own kind of holiday shopping frenzy.

While Black Friday shoppers clogged stores and waited in line for hours, members stood in line for five days at a Wal-Mart in Fresno, to buy every bike that was on the ad, (over 200). They then took the bikes to the Poverello House, a local organization that serves the homeless and hungry, and gave them away to needy kids.

Guess they needed to improve there image after recent events! Still cool though!

Exactly. They're very manipulative and do this all the time just so they can show the public things they do are how they are great guys.

exactly every corporation does this kind of . Overcharge for the services/goods they provide, then say look at the good we are doing by donating some chump change to a needy cause in the spotlight.

And don't forget the pro sports teams. Typically you'll have the captain of the team making a "generous purchase" about this time of year. Its always paraded that its being done out of the goodness of their heart. It happens in every major city (with a sports franchise) that I've ever lived in.

Send out an announcement to the news outlets that the team star will be at the Toys r Us on a certain date and time making the purchase so the pictures can be taken. The meathead then makes the purchase (and is later reimbursed by the sports team), the pictures are taken and distributed. Its public relations gold that's repeated everywhere.

Its all just a dog and pony show for the media.

AJ doesn't get reimbursed for that, it would violate the CBA. JJ Watt "donated" Papa Johns pizza with his picture on it to the police. Basically a commercial for pizza.

uh huh..... Is this similar to how there are rules around kids being drafted and the gifts that can be given? Yeah....that never happens does it?

I've worked for more than one company that finds creative ways to reimburse things that would violate laws. sometimes its as simple as an envelope of case.

He already makes tens of millions per year. Reimbursing him 16K at the risk of draft picks and serious fines would be incredibly dumb. Toys R Us is his partner in this. Not sure what gifts and draft rules you are talking about. They have slotted contracts for each draft pick.

I'd rather our local athletes be in the news for picking up $16k worth of toys than for beating their kid or wife though.

was referring to kids coming out of HS and going college/pro. I think there are rules around how they can be courted.

Anyways, as for believing this is all done out of his own charity, do you not find it odd that in every major market that the superstar of the team just happens to be the one who wants to do this and cameras just happen to be there to catch it all on film? That this all done by their own desire and they aren't instructed by the franchise back office that they need to do this?

Those rules are enforced by the NCAA which is incredibly inept and under funded. The NFL enforces rules because 31 billionaires don't take kindly to cheating.

Every celeb does charity. The NFL has an entire charity department to help players get involved, it isn't some back room of each team. They do it for PR.

You can usually tell whos genuine and whos not when it comes to sports. Background has a lot to do with it. For example, I'd say Hakeem is genuine. Even Lebron.

A lot of players had good role models/guidance and are where they are because of it. I cant imagine some have all they have and dont feel obligated to return it in some shape or form.

Dont get me wrong though, some could give a im sure.

I would have to include Shaq in this category! During the mid to late 90's I was a security guard at the Summit while going to college and saw first hand his generosity. Shaq once owned a home here and when he came into town he would drive from Sugarland. There was a janitor that he took a liking to over the years and when he found out that his car had broken down and he couldn't afford to fix it Shaq purchased him a new one! He did this in Los Angeles as well; but not too many people know about him doing it here in Houston.
