Forget about all the money he actually made from playing in the NFL, and take the $26 million he got in 2006. Now nearly 7 years later, that means that ON AVERAGE he spent $3,714,285.71 a year over the last 7 years, never mind that he reportedly was in a financial bind after just 5 years.
How much do you all make? Let's say you make $50K: that $3,714.285.71 average yearly money Vince was making? that would represent about SEVENTY FOUR YEARS OF YOUR ANNUAL INCOME.
Insane. There is NO excuse for these reportedly 78% of NFL players going broke. NONE.
I have seen bottle service and VIP run hundreds of dollars per head per hour in Vegas so I could see how someone could rack up six figures on a party but it is a dumb thing to do.
Wasn't Young allegedly ripped off by relatives as well?
Not that he didn't make a lot of money but he likely got to keep less than half of his salary.
It is sad that these guys blow there dough. These guys make a lot of bad business decisions as well.
It isn't just football players either. Curt Schilling earned $115 million just in baseball salary and was broke within five years of retirement.
