You're comparing the average Joe to a millionaire....


and if you look at the NFL....majority of these millionaires aren't shorty after they finish there career at a very young age.

You're comparing the average Joe to a millionaire....

 

A millionaire who lost his starting job and probably isn't getting it back...

 

A millionaire who might not even get to keep his roster spot next season...

 

A millionaire who's far from a superstar player in a job market that's often unkind to players who miss time with injuries...

 

A millionaire whose future income isn't guaranteed beyond this year...

 

A millionaire whose livelihood is based on physical ability, but who blew his knee out last season...

 

A millionaire who might well be unemployed sometime soon...

 

Vince Young was a millionaire too.  And this particular millionaire took out a loan of $300,000 last February just to throw a party, a party.  But it's okay for him to blow through money because he's a "millionaire", right?

 

Well actually, not anymore.  Young just declared bankruptcy.

 

The whole "hey, I'm a millionaire now" mindset is why half of these guys end up broke shortly after their careers end.  They spend money on stupid crap like this because they think the gravy train is gonna last forever.  Than a few years later they're a sad news story at the bottom of the sports page.

 

But hey, spending the rest of your life in squalor is worth it if you got to wear expensive watches for a couple of years, right? :unsure:

Spending $125,000 for two watches, and this by a guy who might not have a roster spot next season, doesn't exactly say "sound financial planning" to me.

I try not to judge the way someone spends their hard earned money when I have no idea what their bank acct looks like. Maybe he has stocks and bonds and poo. And this is just a splash spend. We have no idea

OK, a few problems with this, some have already been brought up.

1. What kind of company ships 125k in watches by FedEx, with no signature required? They probably didn't use bubble wrap either, too pricy.

2. If I had hundreds of thousands of dollars of stuff being delivered, i'd be a little more interested in being home at the time, or watching for it at least.

3. If you're gonna invest 125k in timepieces, go the Flava Flav route.

I'm just not in the habit of judging people on how they spend their own money, they're gonna do what they want regardless.
