Vick has blown $30million

LINK

headline story on yahoo. this is an example of what is wrong with todays news.

the headline is that he has BLOWN $30 million since 2008

when u read the article it says he spent the money the following ways

quote:

The gossip site got a hold of some of the NFL player’s bankruptcy papers and found that Vick paid$10.9 million in taxes, $9.2 million to creditors, and $2.7 million to accountants and lawyers. That adds up to $22.8 million. The rest of the money was apparently spent on child support, living expenses, and other purchases.


so he spent $22.8 million of the $30 million responsibly, and with having kids and such i think its pretty reasonable that he couldve spent $5.5 million on living expenses the last 4 years, and would imagine that is less than a lot of his teammates

how can they even count the money paid in taxes amongst money spent?

Doesn't sound like he spent his money wisely. I'd consider that blowing it.

Why did he owe 9.7 to creditors? You don't just "spend" $30mm

I wouldn't really call owing $9 mill to creditors and $10 mill to taxes responisble. Seeing as those amounts are so large probably due to penalty and interest.

re: Vick has blown $30million
he filed for bankruptcy in 2008, he made a settlement with creditors where he has to pay them off through 2014

quote:

So despite the fact that Vick has blown through $30 million over the last four years, only about $1 million of that has been spent on personal expenses. And personal expenses doesn’t mean a Lamborghini. His $300,000 living expenses covered things like rent, food, and education for his kids.

According to Yahoo, the “reorganization plan” strictly dictated where Vick could spend his money. For instance, the star has been allowed to spend $4,250 per month on rent and utilities and $472 per month on a car.

re: Vick has blown $30million
So just because he settled to pay off old debt he didn't "blow it".

Come on, Vick blew the damn money, probably on retarded shite.

I can't tell if you are being serious. He has to be told how he can spend his money now, yet you think his choices weren't that bad?

maybe, maybe not with the creditors.

10 million in taxes is reasonable when you consider how much he has made. Nothing you can do about Uncle Sam.

i'm saying his choices since he has been given a second chance haven't been bad. of course he did dumb shite before but he had the largest nfl contract ever and lost at least $100 million because of fighting dogs

Because he made a lot of stupid mistakes when younger and now he's literally paying for it.
