What a silly idea. But, if I was Foster, I'd take the 10 mil in a heartbeat.

Anyone want to invest in a grumpy old man? :)

I guess it's a great time to buy low and later sell high...

or if you are Foster and think your total future income is limited to 50MM or under going forward you should sell


or if he just wants to hedge the risk he could sell as well

I don't see how this can posssibly work, there is just way way too much unknown risk... There is likely no way to hedge it properly either...

Most highly specualtive investments not traded on an exchange have no real way to hedge

Salary next 3 years of this deal is $18.25 20%= $3.65 to company and his commercials should bring in a bit but better hope he hits it big on next contract and or have a Peyton Manning type longevity. Wonder if it includes and income from movies or TV deals as after retirement income or if he is hired to be a spokesman like Nolan Ryan or Ray Childress? Regardless of the stock, looks initially like a smart move by the 27 YOA player in a usually short term position. I wonder if his agent gets a cut of $10 million?

It's been delisted by the US exchange but might actually be traded on the Canadian stock exchange.

This is crazy cool. Yes some investors will tell you its "not a safe deal" but depending on the contract and your ability to spot talent this would be a crazy good deal for investors if this moved into maybe the UDFA market. What if they offer UDFA's 50k for 10% of all future earnings. If you're a UDFA that's enough to take and be able to concentrate on football instead of finding a job and give yourself a legit chance to make a team. If you go on to use that degree you got, you didn't have to go get a job the day you graduate but you got a year (or several months at least) to try to pursue your dream. If you get a job making $50k/yr you pay that back in 5 years and people make money on you for the rest of your life. If you're one of the draftniks that had foster as a "great talent" you're getting paid big now.

Its not for everyone but people are always complaining about athletes making too much money, this is your chance to spot talent and get paid for it.

It's unregulated that would be the biggest problem for me. Plenty of schemes to get set up

Not that I have a problem with that, I wouldn't be retiring with it. Just sayin'.

You and I disagree on that. I don't think unregulated = bad and I think regulated = false sense of security. If you do your research and invest your money you should be doing it and assuming that everything is unregulated.

CP on 790 made a good point this afternoon on this story. Foster can STFU about people treating players as commodities. He just signed a deal to literally make himself one.

Its not like Foster has the ability to change the system so if he wants to hedge a drop in his future income this makes all the sense in the world

There are some very basic things that would be missing that no amount of research would provide you. Pricing would be the largest that would bother me. I will leave the argument at that so this doesnt get moved

I wouldn't put a penny in this fake vegetarian. Nothing against Foster but I wouldn't trust him. All the flower eaters got behind him and then all of a sudden he's eating chicken.

I understand what you are saying and I wouldnt put money into him either. I can see people being hypocrites though if they feel that there is no changing the system and they want to offload risk

Thought a bump would be interesting..

"An unusual startup trying to sell stock in star athletes is now hoping San Francisco 49er tight end Vernon Davis will prove the concept is a winner.

Documents filed Thursday by Fantex Inc. proposed selling 421,000 shares at $10 apiece to investors who want a piece of Davis' future earnings.

The IPO funds will be used to pay Davis a $4 million fee in exchange for 10 percent cut of his future income tied to football.

The 29-year-old Davis could be paid up to $16.9 million on the remainder of his current contract with the 49ers.

Fantex, based in San Francisco, filed plans last month to sell stock in the Houston Texans' running back Arian Foster. That deal was called off last week after Foster suffered a season-ending injury."

that link took me to an article on dhop


If you paid 4 million for 10% your max payout currently from the 9ners portion would be 1.7mm leaving 2.3 to break even you would need another 10mm in football related revenue. Interesting conceptfor sure
