The Allied Athlete Group is a private sports membership organization for professional athletes headed by C.E.O. and ex-NFL athlete Michael Stone.  You have a has-been washed up ex-ball player trying to steal money and rip off professional athletes.  The company promises to offer athletes such services as concierge, financial, travel, etc.  Every athlete purchases a membership in which the monies are supposed to go back into funding the different needs for the athletes.  Money is missing from accounts and employees are not being paid on time if being paid at all.  A weekend of events was just conducted in Miami for the 2010 Super Bowl.  The weekend was a complete disaster.  Let me start by saying that Michael Stone lied to almost every vendor that participated in our AAG weekend.  He agreed to multiple things with multiple vendors that went undone or changed at the last minute.  Rolls Royece did an event with AAG and was very disapointed by the level of service that was promised to their clients versus what was actually delivered.  A number of people were wandering around looking for Michael and demanding payment, from the chef's that catered the event all the way down to the dj.  Michael was found wandering around many of the events drunk.  The Allied Athlete Group is a complete sham and I highly suggest that all professional athletes stay away from this company.  You do not want to put money into something that is a complete fraud!!!!!!!!

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

(WARNING) Do not confuse BLOG with News Media.

AUTHOR: AAG Chief Executive Officer and Fou - (United States of America)

Hello potential AAG partner,

   The above posting is commonplace in the sports and entertainment arena that I have been blessed to play in and that Allied Athlete Group lives in. The social media age has blurred the line between real factual media accounts and individual grievances from employees or contractors who lost an opportunity to be a part of something that they saw initial value in. We understand the emotions involved in our seperation with this individual and the dynamics of our current media marketplace. In other words, we understand the game that influencers and the businesses that deal with infleuncers play in. 

   Allied Athlete Group is a resource for professional athletes interested in maximizing on the leverage created during his or her professional sports career. As a resource we provide a concierge for our athlete members.We ourselves do not provide financial services or assist athletes in managing finances. We have an annual dues structure for all athlete members that equates to about $83 a month until the value proposition deems and increase. This membership fee goes into building annual programs like the AAG Power Lunch (pics)(http://georgia.exclusiveaccess.net/content/2010/02/07/allied-athlete-group-lunch/), The Allied Angels Program (www.prweb.com/releases/2010/06/prweb4181084.htm)  , The Allied Angel House Program , The Franchise Summit www.franchise.org/Franchise-News-Detail.aspx?id=50484 and the many other programs that are geared towards education and networking with the ultimate goal of leveraging future opportunities with corporations and the right individuals. Other than our athlete owners who own stock in our organization we bare no comparison to the usual suspects who are looking for the athletes dollars. Yes, a weekend of comradery based events was conducted in Miami for the 2010 Super Bowl. It included the AAG PowerLunch, Gifting Lounge and 4 days of events at the AAG Landing Pad (a licensed relationship with the Coliseum Enterprises Landing Pad Hospitality Marketing Platform.)  (http://georgia.exclusiveaccess.net/content/2010/02/07/aag-dinner-party/ ) .

   The weekend was a huge success and has led to many corporate and athlete requests for participation in this year's event.   As far as things changing during the weekend, yes, we parted ways with a "Proof Marketing" event planner. Other than the confusion involved with sorting out the midflight adjustments that went along with that shuffle, the event was seamless. For Miami Superbowl sponsor references please email mstone@alliedathletegroup.com. I will also refer you to the 2 postings above from the DJ and Chef that were the two named "ripped off"vendors. The proceeding posts were made by the DJ and the chef a couple of days following the event and our post event records show that all bills accumulated during the event were paid in full. 


My past life as an athlete has taught me to respond to words with defining actions and ignore the political gesturing pertaining to presenting an external image. As I am learning through my experience as a CEO; image plays a much larger role in the corporate world that it did in the, actual fact, world of sports where if you out work, you win, no matter who thinks that you should not be crowned.   

Thank you for your time and please reach out if you have any further questions. Also reach out if you would like any athlete of corporate references.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Paid In Full

AUTHOR: DJ Flemingo - (United States of America)

My name is DJ Flemingo, I was hired to provide dj services for AAG Thursday February 4th, 2009 to Sunday February 7th, 2009. The contract that was generated and signed between myself and AAG was honored by a deposit and final payment that was received Sunday February 7th, 2009. All expectations that was agreed on in the contract was met. This is my third event providing my services for AAG and all three encounters in the past has resulted in full payment. AAG and Michael Stone called me personally after the event to ensure that I received my final check from their assistant for AAG. I'm sorry to hear of such of a report regarding AAG, again this is my third event and all three events I've been paid in full.
