This receipt was issued in the name of Luther Davis for a $1,200 bedroom set on Aug. 17, 2012. Text message records between a number tied to Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, a number tied to Davis and a number tied to a Sticks N Stuff employee spoke of the set being purchased for Fluker. Texts between a number tied to Sticks N Stuff employee Shayne Roland and a number tied to Davis spoke of Roland setting the furniture up for "D.J.", as well as Davis receiving a $500 discount for the set.
When interviewed by Yahoo Sports in July, Roland denied Fluker had received furniture from the store and said discounts were not granted for athletes and that "somebody could get in trouble" if they were. When he was contacted again in September, Roland said all customers receive discounts from the store.
When asked if he had spoken to Alabama's athletic compliance department about discounts following Yahoo contacting him in July, Roland declined comment. He then offered to put Yahoo Sports in touch with the Crimson Tide's compliance department.
