The difference is that Allen had seen Davis play and knew he had very little chance of making the squad. He retired to save face. Williams is just crazy and has no idea what he is doing. The money he has would last most of us a lifetime. However he will more then likely spend it in 5 to 10 years and he will not be able to replace it with any other carrer. This will be a very bad decision by a forer Texas star and I wish he would reconsider. He needs to take a few minutes to talk to JR Richards before he quits. JR would tell him to enjoy while he can because it can be taken away from you in the snap of a finger. Living under a bridge JR was saved by the MLB retirement fund and he is very greatful.
