The athlete has to be willing to listen and apply the advice. Many are exposed to people who will help at little to no cost, but some athletes have no interest in accepting the help.
Very similar to how so many lottery winners end up broke, filing for bankruptcy.
That is why I said some you will never be able to reach. Keshawn Johnson said something like "Its my money and I will do what I want with it." and the ones that have that attitude will end up broke.
Very interesting piece last night. Other 30 for 30's that I have enjoyed are:
Take it to the Limit (Tim Richmond)
Once Brothers (Drazen Petrovic and Vlade Divac)
Two Escobars (Pablo and Andres)
Guru of Go (Paul Westhead and Hank Gathers)
The last five I listed always make me shed a tear
You know how it is. People love to watch trainwrecks.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
The most interesting part of the story to me is the fact that colleges and universities don't do more to help teach these players some financial literacy, even if only a % are going to make the NFL millions, all of them need to understand the basics of how to manage money.
Staff or anyone do you know if Coach Saban has put together a speaker or program to help with this issue?
I know for a fact Saban addresses this. Our players that go pro now are very well educated and are under the care of good financial advisors.
One guy I'm worried about though is Dre K. Just get that vibe from some his twitter posts...

That's incorrect. The overwhelming majority were minority.
Irrelevant on what color of their skin was, they are grown men that made some bad decisions with their money.
Not sure if you knew or not but Left-Eye was killed in a car accident not too long after the arson fiasco. TLC used to be the bomb back in my day. "the bomb", is that still said today or is that showing my age a little?
You need to look at the list posted earlier....it wasnt all about minorities....there were quite a few white athletes that filed bankruptcy.....Devon97...

We all feed on tragedy. It's like blood to a vampire
