Seems like the police report was filed by someone claiming to be Godfrey.

Well, I guess the villainizing in this thread was all for naught.

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:

Hes the starter right now mikell and mitchell arent under contract. seeing how many chances the franchise gives injuried players i d say he aleast has one more season before hes just cut or ran out of town. We don't know how he spends his money he could be vested in other companies or have other versions of income. To say all athletes go broke is like saying everyone that goes to stanford goes on to be successful. Its only a precentage,and comparing a guy that went to iowa to vince young is crazy. I think most of us cant understand the lifestyle these players lead because he makes more in a year that 99% of us will make in a lifetime. that 125k isn't even 1% of what hes worth. Cut the man some slack he worked his butt off for the right to make these kinds of items.

Yup Jay Glazer just tweeted that he spoke with Godfrey and Charles has no idea how the story broke and that he wasn't robbed.

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.

 

People can do what they want with their money, but people that spend it stupidly wind up broke.

 

Guys blowing through enough money to run a small country in a few short years then winding up broke with a lot of their lives still ahead of them?  That's someone who I have no issue saying spent his money 'unwisely'.  As Rayzor and CRA pointed out above, this is why these guys end up broke (and some of them with kids to feed).

 

Happily for Godfrey, this wasn't really him.  If it had been, this could've rightly been called dumb spending.  As it is, he's a victim of someone who'd rather make money by fraud than actually working.

They should have asked the guy to make a tackle to confirm it was Godfrey. If he makes it -- it isn't him.

I wouldn't place any bets on Godfrey being a starter next year, or even a Panther.

 

And not all athletes go broke, but 78% of NFL players is a pretty significant number (that's 4 out of 5).

 

And you'll pardon me if I don't hold a lot of respect for someone who works his entire life to succeed only to waste everything he's earned and be unable to support himself, or his kids, in just a few years.  So unless your life's goal is to be rich for three years and poor for the next thirty, spending like that is pretty silly.

 

And just to be clear, we're no longer talking about Godfrey because this story turned out to be fake.

Whether this story is true or not, I don't give a damn what anyone says. If I had millions of dollars, I'd buy some ridiculous things too.

You ever seen that show "Oddities"? I'd shop at that place like it was freaking Target.

I don't get all of the hate on Godfrey. Yes that is absurd to spend that much money on watches but i'm sure every other millionaire athlete splurges on some type of luxury item, we just happened to hear about Godfrey's misfortune.

I think basically people just cant understand the different life style signing a 40 million dollar contract can bring to you. 125k is like spending 100 dollars to them. It's not like he does this every day. Hardy on his 6th round rookie contract bought a bentley no one on here called him a idiot. Let the man live.
