Blew all his money. Can't say I feel sorry for him.
Well...Reggie suddenly learned how to play RB, maybe VY can suddenly learn to play QB?
I wonder if Vince can dance? Perhaps he could audition for Dancing With the Stars.
$26 million is more than almost anyone will make in a lifetime. It's the equivalent of being paid $600k a year for your entire working life. How can you blow that so fast? That's insane.
As to his spending, I once saw him buying some bling at a local jewelry shop. His stuff wasn't as bad as what tank Johnson was buying but it was still fairly insanely expensive

I can't say anything bad about him right now. Yeah, a fool and his money and all, but I feel for him because of the financial deceleration trauma he's getting ready to experience.
I don't think all of his money was wasted in the typical fashion. 17.5 million is a lot to have disappear on anyone.
I dont feel sorry for VY. It was his decision to get in bed with a guy like Adams. Is Reliant still VY/Fanboys house?
Wonder if VY would be willing to either bulk up and become a TE? Or become a WR? Making some $$$$ is better than making none.
On second thought I couldn't see VY's ego letting him make a position change. So, broke he will be.
I don't have enough information to assess blame. Based on the lawsuit it appear the his advisor could have done business similar to Allen Stanford or Bernie Madoff. It's one thing to squander money, yet another to be wiped out by someone you trust steal from you.
Good. I'm GLAD he's broke. He's worthless and he's a loser.
How anyone could have the God-given talents he has and COMPLETELY blow them AND the MILLIONS of dollars he got just for being a top draft pick is ****ing beyond me.
Just got back from Clearwater, Fl and as I was finished checking in and walking up to to my room, who do I see? VY himself. It was Sunday and I was sporting my Texans t-shirt, I'm sure he was praying I would leave him be, which I did. My wife spotted him later at the beach also, hanging with his fam and enjoying his Sunday like the rest of us shmoes with no NFL gig.
Since VY is from Houston, he probably would have been gracious. The fact that the Texans didn't draft him has probably worn off by now. There are a number of pro athletes that were drafted to a team, but still a long time fan of another except when they play each other.
You weren't watching the Texans game?? You were in Florida. You could have rode up to Jax with me.
Some times you have to love the Texans fanbase. Still butthurt over VY and Reggie, hate Mario now because he's with a different team, wish nothing but bad things for every ex-Texan who isn't named DeMeco.
Hopefully he saved a couple of empty Tequila bottles so he can remember the good times.
Personally I have no issue with any of those guys, not even Vince.
However the VY fanboys STILL making ridiculous excuses for him and STILL hating the Texans for not drafting him annoy me to no end. So Vince failing only makes them look more stupid than they already are.
Also, VY's ego and non willingness to work put him where he is. So no I do not feel sorry for him.
There are a lot of "untraceable" ways to lose money, including gambling, drugs, women, cash payments for stuff, etc
First, I don't think the "hating" of players who move on is limited to the Texans fanbase by any stretch of the imagination. I view that as within the confines of the game of football, and not extending to the personal life of the players involved. It may not be the most mature, logical position to take, but we are talking about football fans here.
In terms wishing ill personally on VY, I like to think that's one seriously misguided poster and not a representation of the Texans fanbase as a whole.
So how exactly is VY supposed to know that his agent and financial adviser were going to be thieves? I don't see how you could not feel sorry for him if he was genuinely a victim of these guys. There are millions of people out there who have been effected by guys like Madoff, Stanford, etc, and it's not the customer's fault.
