What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
The Financial Problems of Many NFL Players:

1. They spend like they’ll make this kind        of money forever

Many NFL players find themselves bankrupt within a couple of years of retirement. They overspent and overborrowed on a flashy lifestyle that’s left them with nothing.

2. They trust the wrong people

We see it over and over again. An investment deal gone bad, family “borrowing” or “managing” of the money, and, worst of all, greedy advisors and professionals that over-charge or even steal from these susceptible young men.

3. They don’t take the time to get smart          about money  

The opportunity they have, if treated right, can fund massive opportunities for them and their families in the future but many don’t take the time to learn even the basics of personal finance.

Earning money and keeping/growing money are entirely different things. They need to get educated and build a plan for their money before it slowly disappears on them.
