Default Re: Bankruptcy doesn't sideline QB Batch

Unfortunately his high income days probably are done after this year - lots of athletes have been burned with real estate investments gone sour - sorry to read about this

It what happens, you're modest, some football players are (i have a friend who lives near Tomlin and he has a pretty modest size house for how much he makes, and another friend lives near chris hoke who also has a modest size house)

But not all of them are like that, have you seen Ben's house? Its huge. Batch has a pretty nice house overlooking homestead, Ward lives right near him, about 750k houses.
Batch also puts a lot money into Pittsburgh, and he isn't making millions, though his salary is like around a mil, after taxes as you see he's making 700k a year, which most is going into his hometown. Plus whatever he has to pay for his house, he probably bought his mom a house and is paying bills for her, maybe another family member or friend etc.

His business flopped.
