He stated that they usually go to “teasers” every year during spring break this year they didn’t go because some of the player don t have id’s and they need to be 21 to get in, so they decided to go get a stripper instead. Mr. Evans stated that mr. Flannery found a sight through a google search called “allure” and called it. He stated that it would cost $800 dollars for two strippers for two hours. Mr. Evans stated that they set it up to have the players come over that night and drink. They set up the living room so all the guys could come in and all sit or stand in the same room.

They both went back there and came back out and started to do there routine, he stated they started to ask about any toys that they used and the Hispanic girl asked who was going to take down their pants so she could “play with it”, one of the guys spoke up and she commented to him that she would use his dick but it was too small. He then grabbed a broom stick and jokingly stated “how about this” or something to that effect. Mr. Evans stated that the Hispanic girl then “freaked out” and started yelling at them for disrespecting them they then went into the bathroom where they were getting ready to leave. Dan went over to them to try and get them to come out and tried to coerce them out with a hundred dollars for them to leave. This went on for a couple of minutes until black girl went out the back door at that point they locked the door and kicked every one that was there out of the house, due to the attention and noise she was making.

The only one he could definitely say was not there was Chris Loftus he was in the room with him and his girlfriend on long with Chris Loftus’s girlfriend. After that discussion we asked about the emails that were sent. He stated the one email Ryan Mcfadyen sent was a team email, he stated that everyone on the team received that email. I asked if even the coaches received that email due to how bad it was and he stated no that there are two email chains one that has coach on it and one the other coaches are on. We thanked him for his time and we left his room.
