Eye Opening Insight On Possible NFL Lockout

After reading this article I was thoroughly shocked. I had a friend who had an underling that did research for him and told me a story about 3 years ago how approximately 80% of NBA players were in bankruptcy or about to enter it. I was shocked but after seeing and hearing different things I realized how it seemed correct. The stat contained in this article simply confirms how there is an air of lavish lifestyle amongst our professional athletes today. I imagine the numbers aren't much better in the NHL and MLB either. 

The problem being I doubt even with a lockout (or strike) few players will get a grip on reality and realize they need to put money away and be smarter. Hire a business manager that helps control your money and investments and to help keep the leeches away. I believe part of the problem are the agents that are representing these guys are a in part at fault. They push the union in many ways and press the owners with a lot of the holdout and contract demands not in the best interest of a player but in their own self interest.

In the end I just want a season for 2011 so I can go to Oakland finally, party at the tale gate and blackhole drinking a few of you guys (and girls Spirals) under the table.
