He isn't nearly hated as much. And I think the majority of Giants fans would welcome him back with open arms granted he can still pay. Most Giants fans hate Tiki. He highlight reels at the stadium constantly get booed every time they come on.
I would like to know how much the MLB/NFL/NBA would have to pay players before they're not broke less than five years after leaving the league they played in.
I really would.
There are guys who make $100 million in a career and are still broke. Sure, the government takes half of it, so it's only $50 million, but still. A lot of these guys could be paid $50 million a season and still be broke within a few years. The problem is a lot of these guys spend every penny they earn. I think the NFL/MLB/NBA teams should each have a financial adviser on staff. 95% of pro athletes have never had money in their entire life and therefore have no idea how to handle it. A team-affiliated adviser (not some guy just looking to take a player's money) would seriously help these guys. Players would still go broke, but at least the number would be substantially reduced.

Brilliant letting one of Scott Pioli's henchmen have his own team to ruin. One of the premier GM jobs in the NFL and it gets handed to a stupid **** who makes three facepalm moves for every good one. Awesome. Just like handing a new Mercedes to a 16 year old girl who's already been in three wrecks.
The problem with Tiki's attempt at TV is that he's a major douche, and you can only be a successful douche on TV if you're white or funny.
I don't think his doucheness was the problem, NBC just felt like firing him for the banging an intern and leaving his pregnant wife for her bit. Jamie Dukes is a black and a douche, so this theory is clearly not true.
