Chris Spielman shut down by eBay as he tries to raise money for Covid-19 relief

Ok, now this is something that really chaps my behind.

If you have been following social media over the past week or so, you have likely come across the story that former Detroit Lions LB Chris Spielman has set a goal of raising $40,000 for Covid-19 relief. In order to do so, Spielman is using eBay to auction off some of his best pieces of memorabilia from when he played college and professional football.

One item Spielman put up for auction was his 1984 Ohio State Big Ten Championship ring which ended up selling for $12,000.

Unfortunately, eBay had decided to temporarily shut down Spielman’s auctions saying he is ‘”considered a threat.”

Spielman has vowed to still raise the $40,000 he said he would and knowing Spielman’s drive, he will not only reach his goal but he will surpass it.
