    No wonder a certain running back could walk away from 16 million without batting an eyelash.

    Let's get real - *any* of these players, stars or not, (with the right money manager) could walk away from any deal and live well for the remainder of their lives. It's only the fools that go bankrupt after earning $$millions$$.

    Most be a lot of fools in the NFL :lolol:

    Don't remember the % but the number of players that go broke a few years after retiring is shocking.

    And has nothing to do with "not having enough money". As I said, fools. They are foolish with their money because they've never been taught how to deal with fame/fortune.

    Yes, there are a lot of fools in the NFL, MLB, NBA, you name it.
