Default Re: Vince Young is broke and out of work

Hometown hero turned bum...kinda feel sorry for the kid now.

26 million...a good portion of that is lost to taxes (~ 9 mil or so) so u figure he had about 17 mil to play with.....

Say he got a really nice 1 million dollar home.............................................. 16 mil
3 really nice cars that total a combined 1 million.........................................15 mil
A couple of vacation homes across the U.S. that total 1 million......................14 mil
A few bad investments/stealing by his advisors totaling a combined 5 million......9 mil
Hooking up buddies and hangers on that total 4 million...................................5 mil
uncontrollable spending that total 3 million........................................... ........2 mil


Unlike other athletes who've made 100's of millions over they're careers (T.O., Sapp) i could see how he could be broke if you call having possibly only a few million left of 26 million being "broke". He more than likely has a few fixed assets that he can turn liquid, But then this is also just the contract money...doesn't even factor in a few of his endorsement so....

Same story, different athlete. When you come from nothing, more often than not, you never really learn how to handle that kind of money. We might see mario on this list in a few years if he hasn't gotten his car addiction under control.
