Clown Billboard Depicts Duck Players

Eugene KMTR - Somebody has painted a billboard in downtown Eugene depicting several Oregon Ducks football players in clown makeup.

It’s not clear who put up the board, but it is hard to ignore.

The players images have green or yellow painted noses, teardrops running down their faces and clown-like wigs, all in green and yellow.

The billboard has pictures of Jeremiah Masoli, Rob Beard, Lagarette Blount, Garret Embry, Mike Bowlin and LaMichael James—all players who have had off-the-field trouble this season.

Some passersby who saw the billboard say the players are acting like clowns and they think the billboard sends a serious message.

After seeing the billboard, Frank Gonzalez of Eugene said, “They're giving their team a bad name. It's like that saying, ‘One person can ruin it for everybody.’ I feel like they’ve ruined the whole team."

Three of the players on depicted the billboard; quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, kicker Rob Beard and running back LaMichael James, each pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges. Masoli has been suspended for the entire season next year, while Beard and James were suspended for one game.
