should be called "STUPID". Absolutely the dumbest people I have ever seen in my life...sorry if what I say is harsh but come on.
love it so far
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
who are they profiling? Its a long list of millionaire athletes who are broke and back in the "hood".
Oh I think it is absolutely fascinating also, but it is really sad. KM looks high and Kozar is definitely on something as they are recording this.
I am enjoying it. I understand why some spend it all. It is a cultural thing, there are plenty of athletes both white and black who spend it all. The NFLPA and other players association say they look out for the athlete but do they try and set them up with recommended financial advisors? If no, this should be something they should try to do and not by charging them a ridiculous fee to try and help them. Most do not understand how to save their money and spend it wisely and then they have people come out of the wood work to take their money from them with crappy investments. I am in no way making an excuse for them but I am sure it is hard to not spend the money when you never have had it before and then all the sudden you can buy almost anything you want, that would be really hard to not spend a lot.
We see owners like Jerry Jones try to protect their investment, like Dez Bryant, and have people follow him around and watch his every move Why not have a financial advisors in house or recommended financial advisors for the player to sit down with in the club house and discus financial planning with the new signee.
Most of these players have never learned financial planning growing up, and it has to be like an addiction when they get all this money and they go out of control. When you grow up in a steady family you have some sense of controlling your money, these guys have never been taught any of this.
Pro teams owners and coaches talk to the players being responsible in their life by not drinking, partying, and getting in trouble, but being smart financially is part of being responsible as well, and this should be something that the programs they play for should help them with.
But some you will never be able to reach.
