Re: QB Vince Young is being forced to sell all his stuff
I think theres a lot of truth to the statement that they can preach it all they want, not everyone is going to listen. There is also an enourmous amount of pressure put on some of these guys to take care of "their family" once they hit it big. Its hard to say no to family, even harder once you've said once, that could have contributed.
An additional thought, its not neccessarily in the best interest of the owners to have all of these guys financial stable. Afterall, if you "kind of just 'like' the game" there's an awful lot of incentive to retire at the age of 28 w/ 10 mil in your back pocket and no need to do anything other than hire someone you trust to manage your money well (with your eye kept on what they're doing)
