What would you do with that NFL effU money?

Ok, seeing as how a lot of these nfl players seemingly have no idea what to do with all this newfound money, maybe it would be a good thing for a bunch of regular people with regular jobs to suggest what they do other then spending 80,000 on a t#ttie bar shoot-out or gambling on animals eating each other. So let's say you had a job that was something you loved but was only short term, like 6-8 years and paid you millions and made you a kind of celebrity, what would you do with that money for fun, philanthropy, and for business for when you retire from the league?

Here are at least three things I would do:

I would finally get the pediatric cancer foundation I want to start off the ground and fund it with enough so that day to day operations could be paid off yearly from investment interest. The purpose of the foundation initially would be to go toward making a child's time undergoing treatment in the hospital more pleasant by providing toys, clowns, and housing for the patient and family and that type of stuff. As the foundation grows it would also contribute to research for the biggest pediatric cancers.

I would buy an 80 foot or so Swan yacht to sail the world, and hire some america's cup sailors to help fine tune my sailing skills. Sailing is like golf in that you can do it well into your senior years and you can always learn more and improve no matter how good you are.

I would go back to school for industrial design and I would start up a custom car business, hiring some of the best people who work for other companies and teaming them up with kids right out of design school.

Of course I have a bunch more ideas and things I would like to do, but this is a good starting point.

Admit it, you're just trying to redeem yourself in Garb's eyes.

I'd be pissed if I was a doctor and everywhere I went I was surrounded with clowns. Actually, I'd be scared! :rl:

LOL. Well, I was a pediatric patient at memorial sloan kettering and they had these really great clowns from the big apple circus, but i was 18, so the clowns annoyed me, but the little kids loved them. It was really something, you could see how much these people acting as clowns genuinely cared and really tried to make everyone laugh and forget why they were there or what the drug du jour was they were getting.

LOL, nope, I am what I am, and there won't be any exchange of bodily fluids between garb and myself ever so why woull i try to redeem myself? hahaha

You guys are nuts. Saying you are going to make millions is one thing, but actually making that kind of money is entirely different.

A big name player for the packers has accounts with my bank, in one day he made something like 1.2 mil. If anyone one of us hit a check like that you would seriously reconsider any thoughts you currently have on the issue.

I'd like to say i'd invest every dime and remove myself from this country entirly. Who knows, maybe i'd go to a strip club and throw 50k in the air.

Right, well the premise of this thread is to help the unimaginative NFL players out with what to do with their money in a productive and fun yet clean way.

BTW, there are plenty of people who make that kind of coin, I worked on an equity trading desk for an institutional money manager for a few years, I would handle trades all the time that would net individuals that kind of coin. Heck I saw trades put up where guys would lose that much just in a few minutes by screwing up some tax sell offs, but they would just shrug and move on.

You're talking about people who have had that kind of money for a long time. the difference between them and Reggie Bush, is that Reggie Bush had been a normal kid for most of his life, got signed by the Saints and made a pay check of god knows how much. He was probably 20 when he hit that money, otherwise was probably leaving an average life style.

Of course those people you mentioned just shrug it off, they are probably worth over 100 mil, whats a million dollar loss? i wouldn't care either.

I understand the point of the thread, the only problem is you are going to get a lot of people saying they'd donate it all to charity, and help out these people when everyone here is just as selfish, if not more so, than the NFL players. They'd buy a yacht, they'd screw super models, have kids out of wedlock and/or do a significant amount of drugs.

Just cause someone makes 50k in a year living a normal lifestyle of wife and kids, doesn't mean they wouldn't do a total 180 after hitting a gold mine.

With the kind of money that the stars make?

I'd donate money for a cure for cancer, buy about 5 or 6 authentic NFL jerseys (this is if I weren't in the league, for if I was an NFL player I don't think I'd be buying other players' jerseys), buy a lot of 30's and spend at least $2,300 on new hats! Buy my own apartment, a nice one, here in Jersey and have no worries with rent and of course purchase Direct TV with NFL Sunday Ticket. With the rest, man, put it in the bank and spend it like I spent the rest of my money. Beer, Gas & Food.

Oh and I would also do my life long dream of going to all 16 Jets games in a season, if I had that kind of money, I could probably do that for the rest of my life!

Average lifestyle? Did you see the house that his parents were living in throughout his college career? He hasn't lived an average lifestlye since he started playing high school ball would be my guess.

Joe when you were going through all that did you say -- God if you get me through this I am going to change modern day porn? I promise.

I would buy a toy shop right next to ECurb and make sure that I sold XBox's for $1.

I would buy a minor league baseball team and let MadMike manage it.

I would by JI.com and just live off of their VIP profits.

Then I would seek counseling to help with my bitterness problem.

I'd be overwhelmed if I had that much money, especially out of nowhere. But I firmly promise that I'd do nothing out of wedlock, drugs, etc. I'd probably end up putting half in the bank for the future, spend 1/8 on me, and give the other 3/8 to charities I deem worthy. :cheers:

I'm not a big spender, I'd just end up getting a vacation house in a warm-weather state, new furniture, TV's, etc. I'm so damn exciting.

probably not the best analogy. How about Michael Lewis, formerly of the saints? beer man one day, making 800k the next?

or Tom Brady even, low draft pick, makes a good 400k his first year or two, gets resigned to big bucks. IDK, you get my point i think.

LOL. Pretty funny dude. Well, the truth is I never thought "if," only "when." With the amount of cancer I had, I am pretty sure that having that attitude is at least half the reason i did make it. The one thing I did think about was trying to contribute in a meaningful way, and I can't deal with the dissections and stuff in med school so being a doctor was out, so the other thing was finding a way to give lots of money to the doctors to do what they do. My little porn thing is hopefully a means to that end at some point.

But now that you mention this, maybe I should create a dvd series, Sex for a Cure, where we let guys who overcame cancer star with some really hot pornstars and sell the dvd with all proceeds to go to a cancer foundation. Hey Max, thanks for the inspiration!

Oh man, I am going to hell for this, but I can not help it! Since I read this, I have been trying to come up with appropriate titles for your inspirational movies. Here goes:

Cun+s for Cures; Malignant Makeovers; He Beat Cancer, I Beat Him Off; Hospital Happy Endings; Cancer Stick; Healing Hands of Whores; Remission Reach-around (Gotta have gay porn too!); Kimo Kun+s; Sex is the Best Medicine; Cured Co(k; Benign Behinds (Hey, benign tumors are still cancer!)

And the winner is: Leukemia Lust

I apologize if this offends anyone, but it sure sounds funny in my disturbed mind. I do not watch porn, but their titles are notoriously pun oriented.

And for the 4 or 5 years Michael Lewis played in the league, he probably received around $3-5 million, plus he will get a pension from now until he dies. Hows that for 4 or 5 years of returning kickoffs and some punts? The guy can live off that $3-5 million plus the 30,000 grand or so a year he gets in a pension and do nothing for the rest of his life but drink beer and party with his homeboys.

Few, I wasn't sure how well that would go over...BTW, you guys are sick!:):grin::)

I was going to say, you shouldn't feel better because we found it funny. You're still going to hell, you just might have a POTW award to hang over Satan's head.

LOL. It is like being in a strip club when the dancer tells you that she is saving up for medical school. You have incentive to give her money. In theory your are helping sick people.

It is win - win.
