Mike Price's Re-Settlement with SI

For you lawyers out there, an example of how you gotta actually honor those confidentiality provisions: http://articles.news.aol.com/sports/article.adp?id=20051115154309990014. The most famous part of the whole Mike Price/Alabama saga was that, per Sports Illustrated, two strippers were in his hotel room and while they were having "aggressive sex" with Price they started yelling "Roll Tide." Price allegedly replied, "It's rolling, baby; it's rolling!"

The lawsuit appeared to bring out many facts to call into question that reported account: http://apse.dallasnews.com/news/2005/071405pricelawsuit.htm. Reading this Dallas News article, Price's own testimony may in fact be more pathetic than SI's report (which is sad b/c either account gets him fired by Alabama). Per Price, he appears in Pensacola, golfs, goes to three bars, gets wasted, hits the strip bar "Artey's" and leaves the strip bar in a cab. He is so drunk that he does not even know that a waitress from the club is also in the cab. Both go to his hotel room, nothing happens b/c he is impotent (and forgot his Viagra) and he sleeps all night in his clothes. He leaves in the AM and the waitress fleeces him for $1,000 of room service orders.
