Yeah, it's just piling on the poor guy. But how the hell does anyone get to be $25 million in debt?
I hear sympathetic claims that these guys get "bad advice" or get taken in my crooks. But ya know--their own greed has to be at the center of it, right? A single year of a two million dollar contract should have someone set for life, if s/he is happy living a comfortable but not excessive lifestyle.
Among the things I'll never understand in life is why millionaires--even billionaires--want *more*. What for? "For their families"? Frankly, my family (and everyone I've ever known) will be just fine if someone pays me $2,000,000 to teach high school for a year.
Rant over. No personal reflection on John L. Smith who may well be a good guy and who is only wholesale adopting the "more-more-more" mindset of our culture.
