35 million. Shilling seems to be more of just bad luck if he had that much personal cash. Took a risk and crapped out.

He isn't an idiot like most of the people on the episode.

infusing your net worth in a failing company, tax credit or no tax credit, isn't exactly smart

i'm not hating on him, but he made the same mistakes that a lot of these other guys did, just on a bigger level

I agree, but the fact he had 35 million was my point. And he said he is just 'tapped out'. Not dead broke with no options I guess.

re: ESPN 30 for 30: Broke
i think his options were to go back to being an analyst, which is pretty legit for post-career. most of the big guys make 7 figures. it makes sapp's bankruptcy that much more stunning

Yeah, kosar and mccants looked like they've been through the ringer of drugs/alcohol/bankruptcy. definitely has taken a toll on those dudes

I'm sure Bart already has a job lined up

I would love an entire episode dedicated to Travis Henry though

yeah he came off as photogenic and well spoken. sounds like he's already developing the "analyst/radio voice"

i think the problems with this are (1) finding him and (2) paying for him to travel to the shoot

it was knee injuries that ruined his career.

he turned to drugs though later on...

its amazing how guys from around here totally check out on life once their careers are over.

It looks like Nick Fairley may follow the Jamarcus/McCants lifestyle.

I really enjoyed it. Crazy to see their personal experience. Still ridiculous how pro athletes blow so much money!

I'd probably develop a drinking habit too if my daughter was on Mofos getting split in half.

Mashburn is coming off great in this show. He seems educated, which is why he probably didn't frick everything up.


And do you notice his businesses are in KENTUCKY, smart huh. He actually "gets it".

Very true, they are paying some athletes MILLIONS, learn how to manage money.
