It's a different culture, being wealthy or a pro athlete. I obviously can't tell you what they're doing because I've never came within the same hemisphere of that kind of money but the reports about dolphins hazing should give some perspective...people shoving 30K dinner bills on rookies and shit...he probably got some bad advice from some bad "friends" too, but Vince young won't be the last young man I'll prepared to be wise with his earnings in pro sports

The only surprise about this story is that it took this long for him to go bankrupt. He isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. I don't feel sorry for anyone who's handed that kind of money and is too stupid to manage it wisely or find someone who can. To me, it's similar to the players who get popped repeatedly for drunk driving. If you're too dumb to hire a driver or call a cab with that kind of money, you deserve what you get.

There's an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary titled Broke that's about players who lose everything once their careers are over. I haven't seen it yet, but it is available on Netflix.

And apparently it's on YouTube as well:

That show is very amusing, very incredible and very sad at the same time.
