The TRD Teeray/Panther 55 back and forth comments were awesome imo. He would put just enough sanity in his insane post to make people feel obligated to respond. People like that spice up this board. I actually miss him in some kind of strange way.... Unfortunately the Cam Newton not being the worst bust ever thing didn't work out for him. He kind of bet the farm on that one. Well at least we still have PantherUnited threads for everyone to rally against.
If you are one of those people who are like "they need to make their own " etc.. etc.. it doesn't matter. Me coming from a poorer family I understand the difference that money would do for the next generation.
To each his own. But to me there is a huge difference.
My wife does financial planning and she has a few other clients that have similar situations. The huge problem is that when he dies the money stops. Even discounting the huge amounts of interest he could have made, if he would have god forbid been in a car accident then the money stops and the Falcons are off the hook. If he continues to live they still don't lose because of the cash on hand they saved and most likely invested into something else that made money. Now the fact that he is no longer playing football and he didn't have huge amounts to blow on hookers and blow probably make him less likely to die so all in all probably works out well for him. .... The more I think about it and see all the stories about athletes being robbed by their money people this is probably how everyone's contract should be ... .
This can be fixed in 1 of 3 ways. 1. You can hbo go or other media (wink wink) and watch the 5 seasons of game of thrones and be like wow what have I been missing. 2. You can go to amazon and get the books and read them like.. Wow this is pretty good. 3. You can read the books and watch the TV series and become one of those annoying people who always say... yaayayay the book is soo much better snobs.
