Terrell Owens "I'm in hell" Almost broke after illustrious NFL Career

Good Read on T.O, shows how these once Multimillionaire Athletes can lose it all so fast.

Re: Terrell Owens "I'm in hell" Almost broke after illustrious NFL Career

While Ive read a couple articles including this one yesterday, my question still remains, where did the 80 million dollars go? He has yet to explain it. Im not buying him not living lavishly, I watched his show several times, and he was always spending major money and flaunting. I watched as he bought a pair of earrings or earring for something like 90k at a upscale jewelry store. 4 kids, 4 different women? He gets zero sympathy from me and deserves everything he gets...

Trying to keep TO from blowing all his money would be like trying to turn a whore into a housewife. It aint happening. Couldn't have happened to finer fella.

I never liked T.O. but he gets some sympathy from me here (not on the 4 kids from 4 women thing though). A lot of these guys end up trusting the wrong people with their money and end up getting in bad investments. All the hard work and sacrifice they put in to get to NFL and they end up with nothing.

Ok, but even if someone does give him a one year deal for the vet minimum, that won't last him for the rest of his life. He can't live off of that forever. It's time to get a 9-5 like the rest of us T.O.

Re: Terrell Owens "I'm in hell" Almost broke after illustrious NFL Career

Hard to feel bad for someone who had incredible wealth and blew it.

While it may not be easy to manage that kind of wealth on your own... you hire the right people, don't put all your eggs in one basket, and you don't buy ridiculous stuff you don't need!!

Yep. Same story different person this time around. Although you gotta admit his opportunities to get a job will be better because of his past stardom. I'm sure he could try to get into broadcasting if he so chose.
