I love JN. But man you guys are some whiny bitches. 

The first Frankie Goes To Hollywood album was the best, they didn't do anything thereafter.

Can somebody forward this article to him/his agent: https://www.investopedia.com/financial-edge/0312/why-athletes-go-broke.aspx      

I haven’t worn a necklace since 1988.  SAR I

I believe that TMZ is Satan and if you follow, watch or subscribe to it you are a Satan Worshipper.

Speaking of crack and eggs, have any of you tried these yet?  They're getting me through lockdown quite nicely.

1) I'm intrigued by these, do they come frozen and then you microwave?

2) Am I really going to be the first to mention/post this? Hopefully Le'Veon will give him a talking to.

They are sold refrigerated, not frozen.  You peel the lid back and inside is a plastic pouch with the meat and vegetables.  Take out the pouch, put the eggs in, empty the pouch contents in, stir, and throw it in the microwave.  Tastes very good.  I use two eggs instead of one, more filling that way.  If you roll with 1 egg, just put it on a bagel for a yummy sammy.

He didn't spend $400,000 on the necklace,  that was the "alleged" value. I'd be surprised if he spent half of that on it.  I know people who spent $500,000 on a house and now can't sell it for 60% of that.  Let's be honest,  if he spent $250K on a Mercedes AMG S65 Coupe nobody would bat an eye even though cars are terrible investments.  

Also I doubt this was an "impulse" buy. A necklace like that needs to be ordered months in advance. 

A car is a useful tool.  A house is also an item you need.  You can't blame a homeowner for buying before 2007. Blame the brilliant president that decided to scrap Glass-Steagall.

IMHO, Expensive jewelry is foolish purchase for anyone that has or does not have a lot of money.  It sums up the ideals and values that drive a lot of people today.  Buy expensive things to impress people they don't care about and who care equally less about them.

Please don't lump us actual Satan worshipers in with people who watch tmz.

Can we just for a moment talk about how his job is to protect the quarterback from pass rushers and he got a big gold chain that says admit one on it?

1) someone said it..." I don't get it." me too.

2) His money.

3) Joe Burrow did it too. ( i dont teh valuation)

4) It IS better than buying a new car.

 

I absolutely agree with all of this.  It's not what I would do, then again I'm not a 21 year old who was just handed several million dollars.  If I was I likely would have splurged on something big too.

In fact, related to #4, I bought the GLD (gold ETF) in the market a few months ago.  I just don't wear it around my neck but it's completely true that a new car would decrease in value much quicker than precious metals.  So I got something in common with the Big Ticket....

The dude just got an $11 million signing bonus.  He's guaranteed to get another $7.5 million over the next 4 years.  I think he'll be ok.

11MM is about 6MM after taxes and agent fees. 

i'd bet he also spent a few hundred K on a car.

Why should I care how he spends his money?

You're a Scotsman. You care. Speaking of Scots...

A Scotsman and Irishman walk into a bar...

As they walk in the Scotsman proclaims loudly for all to hear “Drinks for the house, on me!”

The next day in the newspaper the headlines reads ‘Irish ventriloquist found beaten to death”

As a retired guido from Long island, i'm offended by your anti-necklace comments. My community's heritage and traditions are NOT something to be mocked. 

Consider your posts REPORTED, punk. 

I'd like to hear what the road is like from "guido" to regular civilian.  What motivated you to retire and how did you go about it.

For those that say diamonds hold value, check out the used engagement ring market. Diamonds have no actual value. Blame debeers

Insurance Value and Retail Value have no correlation to Actual Value, which unless you are doing a private party sale is Scrap Value, plus a little bit if the setting is nice/interesting.

There is no comparison between buying & selling paper gold and buying & selling gold jewelry.

I’ll never understand spending money on flashy things. 

Easy to understand, but perhaps hard to relate to.  "Look at me... I'm special.  I have material wealth. I'm better. I'm big.  Treat me that way"

The purchase price was probably half of what the value actually is. The media exposure for the jeweler is worth way more than what that necklace is. Famous people get ridiculous deals on things of that nature as long as the sale is publicized. 

Here’s Becton’s chain being made in real time.

Correct, at least in relation to the intended purpose of such a purpose.  And certainly not when you stamp the chain with something like "Big Ticket," but my point was a simple one.  Let's not criticize him for buying something like that when an automobile or many other things would depreciate pretty damn quickly.  I had a friend who sold a small business in 2016, he used about 10% of the proceeds on a weekend long party in Las Vegas for 100 of his friends and family, all expenses paid.  It was his money so to each his own, but I'd call that more frivolous than what Mekhi did.

Your friends party was enjoyed by 100 people who will remember it.  How many will enjoy a comical necklace ?
