Default Crazy Article

I don't know if I'm going to get in trouble for putting this on here because its from ESPN, but ESPN just posted a combination of like 6 articles about the security of the players in the NFL post Sean Taylar & Darrent Williams. If you've read it I'd like to hear what everyone because I thinks its a great story and I suggest reading it if you already haven't....its the main story on the NFL page so its easy to get to

I could be wrong, but I think its ok to post ESPN articles. lawl

Its not a bad article but it makes an error in its assumption that people target NFL players specifically. Its more a targeting of rich people. If someone's got money and there's an opportunity for someone who's willing to take it, there's going to be a crime committed.

I don't believe many of these attacks are premeditated (except for the targeting of the Jags lineman) I think its more, targeting wealth and the score than the footballer.

I think the article is kind of insinuating that the criminals see them on TV and know the kind of money they're making because contracts and stuff are public so it makes them easier targets.

Not to mention the reason this happens more frequently (relative to the size of the athlete population) to athletes than normal rich executives is because normal rich executives aren't flashing their money the way that athletes do. The fact that one of the players had to make a conscious choice to NOT drive around with huge rimes and instead a "normal" luxury car explains this. Normal wealthy executives like to place their money in places such as markets, real estate and things more liquid than say a diamond plated chain that spells their nick-name.

Diversity in one's portfolio doesn't include "bling" or "rims" that said If I was getting hit every week I'd probably have a DB9 or something to get around in and something awesome as a family car too.

I don't think I'd still be going to clubs etc, but clubs piss me off.

I'm in the process of reading this, but there was a very similar story in the local paper. Scary stuff.

That's a pretty huge stereotype, alot of NFL players like Terrance Newman are smart and invest their money properly, because there are a few knuckleheads that doesn't supplant the wide majority of players who are smart about it.


And those Executives and CEO's, alot of them keep money in safe's in their house, case under the drawer, you never know, let's not assume that just because they run a fortune 500 company they don't have thousands of dollars sitting around their house.

Keyshawn was always great with his money. He has it invested in plenty of successful companies.

and I agree with Metsox. Go the Brooks or Dunn way.

Hardly a stretch of a stereotype. Look at everyone of thoes knucklehead ex-players on ESPN. Every one of them have huge watches and wear ridiculous gaudy suits. Its that flashy mentality that gets a lot of them in trouble.

CEOs would keep lots of very expensive items in their home, Art, jewelry, rare collectibles, etc. For a knowledgeable thief it would be extremely profitable, not so much for a couple of thugs off the street.

NFL players often hang out with the same friends they had before they made it big and go to the same type of clubs. They tend to be rougher crowds, sometimes even thugs.

CEOs come from a completely different world. They grew up in an upper class world where violence is considered crude. They use lawyers or pay others to do the dirty stuff for them. They hang out in country clubs and other upper class establishments where thugs don't hang out.

Age is also a big factor. NFL players become millionares in their early twenties while CEOs don't until their much older.
