In the end its just a damn car. Good for him being able to have something he wants, but its just material at the end of the day. I hope he is truly fulfilling his life through football, because if he is truly happy I'm glad he has himself a new RR. Can't wait to see him play again on Sundays. To each his own. Go Panthers.

Dude is gonna be on that ESPN part II special about athletes going broke 3 yrs after leaving the league despite making millions....

He bought some other pointlessly expensive rides as well I believe

He can afford to buy some sweet ass rides. Doesn't mean he'll be broke.

Just got back from seeing his financial advisor, the same guy who helped Jamarcus Russell.

I'll never judge somebody the way they spend there money. Even if he didn't get as much as he did, he could still afford those cars.

Here's a great article on athlete's and their financial woes after retiring.

So I won't judge him, but I also won't agree it's a good idea. 78 percent bankruptcy rate is no joke.

A car isn't the worst thing to buy. At least you can resell it and get something back.

Guys who spend money in strip clubs or "invest" in restaurants are the ones throwing it away.

If I had that kind of money, cars would be what I would buy too. Not for show, but just for fun.

I don't think I'd buy a RR or a Bentley... I'd buy Porsches, BMWs, a Nissan GTR and the like... would probably also have some cool off road vehicles.

Thanks for the article, I am well aware though. We have no idea what his fanancial situation is, probably none of us know him personally. I can see how it looks bad though.

I wish I could talk but I can't, my old man owns two shot corvettes (2008 and 2011)

The 2008 is pushing 550 HP with a Vortech SuperCharger, American Racing Headers, and a MagnaFlow Exhaust System.

The 2011 is at 620 HP with a Vortech SuperCharger and FlowMaster headers

However, I think he is selling the 2008 to buy a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon lol.

He's a football player, 10 years after he retires he won't be able to even remember his name. Might as well spend that money while his brain is still functioning and he can enjoy it.

It doesn't look bad. If it was a white stockbroker who has already made 50 million, it'd be fine to spend $200k on a car. But an nfl player does it and he's a moron. Go figure.

Yea but the difference is "stockbrokers" are educated on finances, the majority of NFL players are not, minus Smitty. I get what xerxes was saying.
