Daaaaaayyuumm!! I had no idea how short these guy’s careers are, and how little they make, if they have to stretch it out over the rest of their lives. If you consider that they’re probably retiring with injuries, or due to injuries, they may not be making anything. They may be in the hole, even if they manage their money well. If you blow through all the money and retire with brain damage from concussions – wow, what a train wreck!

It even makes being a webcomic artist look good. I’m not in the hole yet, and I haven’t even taken one hit off a 300 lb dude.
