Stanford seems like he has a good head on his shoulders. I hope everything goes well for him. It's sad to see him affected by this, but hopefully things will work themselves out.

Overall, his part of the article was pretty good. He seems like he's a genuinely good guy with a pretty good head on his shoulders.

However, I couldn't get past him talking about living on Ramen and PB&J but still taking a trip to Las Vegas for Valentines Day. It's great that he wanted to do something special for his GF. But, I would imagine, that she would rather real food to eat, than a weekend in Vegas.

Yea, he seemed like he had a lot of trouble saving money during the season. I'm sure someone told him about the possibility of the lockout, but he still went splurging on his friends. Hopefully this is a good life lesson for him, at least.

He did seem like he had a plan in place, but he did a really bad job planning for the worst.

Great find, nice read.

Adds some perspective and shows not all players are pool side waiting this out with loads on cash in the bank. Also good to see he's doing good things with his time away.

Rep for RJ!

Kinda seems like the real world has set in. Guess what there are millions of people in the same situation if not worse.

'I couldn't splurge like I wanted, just a quick trip to vegas, you know, nothin special really.' If it was that bad his woman would be getting flowers and a night at applebee's.

If these are the sob stories behind the lockout, then color me unimpressed

I read the article at catscratchreader and the author there made a good point that Stanford is probably exaggerating a little with the ramen noodles and pb&j....I doubt he intended to imply that he's having trouble putting food on his plate. With that said, he definitely can't complain if he's still taking trips to Vegas for a birthday. He did say he cut out vacations and put off buying a house, though.

^^^ yep. If he was living off Ramen noodles he would not be fit to play football when the time came.
