Re: 80% of NFL players end bankrupt

I watch ESPN 30 for 30 Broke a while back.

Im afraid its hard to have any sympathy for those that make more in a year than some of us will make in our lives because they cant get rid of hangers on,spend wisely and as they admit try to outdo each other

Re: 80% of NFL players end bankrupt

Soooooooooo ... they're in college to learn about & play football, and then they're in professional football to learn about life & how to budget? . What a topsy-turvy world we live in, eh? .

I have no sympathy for millionaires, but I am a little bit astonished at the "80%" figure ... I mean, it's understood professional athletes have to undergo a certain change of lifestyle to protect their privacy/assets, et... & there's always gonna' be that percentage that blow it all on strippers & cars, but 8-of-10 couldn't find someone to effectively manage their money? That's a fricken' crisis, IMO.

I'm putting out my shingle right 'chere, :

... "Seeking investment guidance? Trust SloMotion Financial Advice (for the NFL & other celebrity type persons) to give you what you need. "Yes" ... you can have your cake & eat it too. Reasonable rates, .

Re: 80% of NFL players end bankrupt

I'm not so surprised at the 80% as that is probably near the percentage of NFL players that make league minimum lol... They are only kathousandaires for a few years then have to fall back on what they failed to learn in college to live for another 40-50 years.

You cant protect people from themselves.

Re: 80% of NFL players end bankrupt

I wonder if its skewed by an enormous amount of players that are in the league for 1 year making near the league minimum.

Even so, its still a lot of money to waste though.

Is it really smart for a publication to post that. I just remember Sean Taylor getting shot when people brok in to his house. Making stuff lik that known won't lessen the chance.
