    Vince Young has apparently been fleeced by his agent and his financial adviser, and pursuing the matter in court. Losses are alleged to exceed $5 million, and could be closer to $19 million.

    This is not the first time we have heard of this sort of thing. If it is true, it is very unfortunate, and I hope the culprits are put in prison.

    There is no better example to illustrate the old saying: "A fool and his money are soon parted."

    I wish no ill will on the guy, though. Hope he has success in recovering at least some of his money.

    I remember when he chose his buddy Major Adams to be his agent. His intelligence level was being seriously questioned then. It's a shame that these parasites take advantage of low IQ challenged individuals like VY.

    Oh well, look on the bright side. The person who was truly robbed in of all this was Bud Adams.

    Now, I wonder why his Wonderlic score was the first thing that popped into my head when I read about this.

    And the cynical side of me thinks he's scraping the bottom with another publicity stunt to get back into the headlines.

    Sorry. No sympathy here whatsoever.

    I'm undecided whether I think this is more likely to be Vince being stupid enough to hire an inexperienced family "friend" and trusting him far more than he should have, or Vince being stupid enough to burn through millions of dollars with nothing to show for it, and reflexively looking for someone else to blame it on since he's been told all his life he can do no wrong.

    Either way, stupidity is the common theme.

    I don't care for VY anymore than the next guy, but if someone stole his stuff, I hope they catch the thief and jail him for a long time. I frigging hate thiefs.

    MSR, that made me lol.


    I don't care how rich or how poor you are, just handing someone your money and saying 'take care of it' is STUPID. You should always understand where your money is, what and why it is invested in, and how those investments are doing.

    It's unfortunate that we live in a society that a total stranger can be more trust worthy than a friend or relative. This sounds more like theft than unsound investment practices. I hope he recovers some if not all of the losses.

    This is what happens when you don't hire a professional for these types of things. Drew Rosenhaus might be a reptile, but he wants to keep getting clients.

    It was pretty obvious Major Adams didn't know what he was doing when VY scored a 6 on that Wonderlic. A real agent would have given him simulation tests so he could at least have scored double digits or got him a tutor. Instead he hired a yes man that was stealing from him.

    Always loved Vince the Longhorn. Vince the pro...not so much. Hope he can get his money back from these scumbags.

    NFL agents get paid 3%. If VY wasn't so dumb you would think he would have noticed his agent was living like someone with a lot more than $1.5 mil.

    Could care less about VY's plight.

    It's not my $$$$ so I dont care.

    I could've called this happening to VY yrs ago. A fool and his $$$$ shall soon part.

    He should have asked Mack Brown for guidance.

    A fun fact: Major Adams is the brother of renowned Gospel singer Yolanda Adams.

    I used to see her all of the time and she even got an autographed jersey for a friend of mine of Vince's. She always talked about what a great guy Major was.

    Reminds me of ESPN's 30 for 30 " The Best That Never Was " . A minister was handling Marcus Dupree's money and next thing Dupree knows he's getting calls from the bank .
