NFL players seeking High-Risk "Lockout Loans"

10 posts in this topic

Something different than all the draft talk....

According to a financing source, these interest rates range from 18 percent to 24 percent, and upon default, they can rise as high as 36 percent.

...

"I know at least 16 different teams that have had players go out and have to set these [high risk loans] up," said the adviser. "Guys on the Dolphins, Saints, 49ers, Panthers, Chargers, Bears, Vikings."

Interesting read, who do you think the players are form the panthers? My guess is Otah so he can support his out of control junk food habit.

Jimmy Clausen so he can fund all his trips to Europe.

Only thing worst than Draft talk... is lockout talk... That got old when the lockout happened.

this will end well

would bet that the average household(let's just say around $60k'ish/year type families) have more in savings than most NFL players.

Whatever! Floor length fur coats and bling ain't gonna pay for itself. Only fools "save for a rainy day". Everyone else needs to have monogrammed diamond jewelry that can only be resold for a fraction of the price because of it being personalized.

the longer this lasts, the number of players who need financial assistance will increase... eventually the majority of the players will overrule the 10% of the ridiculously high paid players who can still afford to fight a lockout. It just takes time for over-paid, spoiled, athletes to gain perspective on the matter.

Living on Ramen noodles and taking trips to Vegas. LMFAO

So basically, these idiots are going out and getting loans from Advanced America to pay for their lifestyle, rather than say, getting a job? That dude from our team was on the practice squad...WTF is he doing going to clubs and hanging out in the VIP? I really feel sorry for these guys.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
