    That's how you end up broke, overspending for things that you should reign in the spending on...the money won't be coming in forever. The goal should be to be able to make all that money last the rest of your life. 78 percent of retired NFL players go broke, and most of them earn over a million dollars...a penny saved is a penny earned...hire an intelligent financial advisor with a track record of success, and a long list of clients who have protected their wealth, and not some family friend...there are people that do this professionally...
