Crazy levels of spending . . . literally

34

Reading the 'Vick Confidential' article on ESPN and this really caught my attention: "AT ONE POINT, VICK SPENT ABOUT $30,000 A MONTH TO SUPPORT FRIENDS AND FAMILY. IS THAT COMMON AMONG NFL PLAYERS? The short answer is yes (59.1 percent). "A lot of us have people who helped us get to where we are today, so it's no big deal," says one grateful Pro Bowler. HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU LEND PEOPLE EVERY YEAR? Average amount: $17,964 " The average career for the NFL player is what just a little over 2 years? Figured it would be a decent amount but that stunned me especially considering it is not gross and it is after taxes.
