Auburn Supporters Target Rashaan Evan's Family Business


Rashaan Evans’ decision to play for Alabama has placed his family’s business in the crosshairs.

According to posts on The Bunker, an Auburn Tigers message board, fans and supporters of Auburn, angered by Rashaan Evans’ decision to attend the University of Alabama, are attempting to take their revenge on Evan’s parents’ business.

A post culled from the site by Alabama Sports PRSS provides details of Auburn supporters’ plan of attack:

“Looks like the Corner Market (full address disclosed) is owned by R&C Enterprises LLC. The property was sold at the 2012 Lee County tax sale for back taxes. On June 30, 2013, the property was redeemed by R&C. R&C has not paid its 2013 taxes of (full amount disclosed). Also, looks like they owe various 2013 personal property taxes for their home (full amount disclosed) and for other property located in Lee County (all outside the City of Auburn). Tax info for Alan & Chenavis Evans and R&C Enterprises LLC all online.

 

“This is the Evans household (primary residence) (full address of where this family lives disclosed), which is not in the Auburn City Limits, it’s in Lochapoka. All the Evans children attend Auburn City Schools illegally by trying to own property in the city limits but yet not reside there. Bottom line is they don’t live in Auburn. They don’t pay taxes in Auburn and appropriately don’t pay taxes on anything. And if you want to dig a little further go look up the amount of liens on this property at the courthouse. Wow!

 

“Looks like they are in serious debt and Rashaan did what was best for his family.”

For his part, Evans has been surprised by the extent of the reaction. Speaking to TideSports, he said he wasn’t surprised by fans’ anger, only by the vitriol aimed at he and his family.

“It’s just crazy right now. What’s getting crazy is people are going to the board at my school trying to get me in trouble,” Evans told Andrew Bone. “They are telling my teachers I am a bad kid and all this stuff. It’s just bad right now.

“Social media has definitely been the worst. People on Instagram are telling me how they hope I tear my ACL in game one. They will laugh when I do. They are saying my family is horrible and how they didn’t raise me right. It’s just crazy.”

Evans took to Twitter to express his surprise:

The Auburn Creed, touted by Tigers fans as an expression of their lofty ideals, reads in part:

I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.

Of course, this only applies if your fellow man chooses to attend Auburn. If he chooses a rival school, all bets are off.

    These people who treat him and his family this was are no better than the idiot that poisoned the trees in toomers corner. Shame on them!

    • Sandy Manders

      One person destroyed the trees,…..I do believe this is a bit worse. Trees can be replaced…..do you understand that?

      • Eletro

        Hmmmm is it worse than what happened to Cade Foster

        • Guest

          I guess attacking an entire family and their livelihood,on top of death threats and wishing him injuries on the field…..hmmmmmmmmmm,….I don’t know, you tell me…….hmmm. A few idol threats that never came to fruition as opposed to taking action…..hmmmmmm, oh, I don’t know….can I post your address, your income, your debt, and wish your child a career ending injury…., can I,….can I?

          • Matt

            Wow-
            Where do I start?

            A few fans who want to boycott a business versus multiple fans
            who threaten to KILL one of their own players because he missed a kick….
            hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Apparently, you don’t know because you’re too stupid to use
            common sense.

            Wishing a career ending injury versus death threats?
            hmmmmmmmmmmmm

            Wishing someone an injury is pretty low, indeed. but death for a bad
            kick? Really?

            It appears their livelihood wasn’t in all the greatest shape to
            begin with anyway, so if a few fans aren’t happy with his choice, they certainly
            are allowed to boycott anything they wish.

            Just don’t threaten to kill a kicker who had a bad night.

          • Jax Colicchio

            Typical Barnyard reaction….deflect as usual.

          • Jax Colicchio

            Perhaps you should be a bit more selective when using the word ‘stupid’….”a few fans want to boycott a business”….way to down play it……stupid. Ourbarn will always be the little brother. Measure your success and failures independently,….UA should never be a resource of comparison for AU, it’s weak. If Gus had a backbone, he would have already addressed this situation and put a stop to it all. Own it …..

        • Sandy Manders

          Yes.

      • Nikefan

        Sandy Manders, You can’t replace over a hundred year old trees over night, that being said. Obviously this is worse, that’s my point! The Auburn people screamed about the trees and they had a right to but this is way worse than the destruction of the trees.

  • Night Raider

    The point is, they’re just being typical auburn fans & I’m glad Rashaan got to see them in action so he’ll know for sure he made the right decision to come over to the good side.
