 Go to YouTube and type in, "Professional athletes who have gone broke". I almost want to cry with them.

 I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better.

    Well professional athletes are a lot like lottery winners in that they can't "make" tons of money over and over year after year until they die.  A lottery winner will likely only hit one big jackpot in their lifetime.  The NFL is so brutal on the body that most star players are lucky to make it 10 years playing actively.

    On the other hand you have people like Bill Gates and Taylor Swift who will still be earning tens or even hundreds of millions per year when they are 95 years old.

      jjtheprince, Some athletes develop entourages who follow them around. Athletes are in a predicament in that they do not want to discourage their fan base. 

       You are correct about the brutality of the game. 

      America is wonderful with people like Bill Gates and Taylor Swift.
