Brian questioned yesterday "Who doesn't love the new rookie salary slotting system in the new CBA?"
Well apparently Alex Marvez sees the potential evil:
The bad news: There is a greater risk that another group of players will head down the same path that left (Terrell) Owens’ bank account in tatters.
Such is the danger of giving college-aged men huge sums of cash that they might not only be unprepared to handle but will receive more than two-plus months before training camps open.
With so much spare time on their hands, rookies will face temptations and pressures that could cause the kind of spending they will later rue. Those who are particularly susceptible generally come from impoverished backgrounds. These players seek the kind of material possessions they lacked growing up, such as jewelry or a new car. Some also spend excessively on friends and family to reward them for their support leading up to NFL careers that usually don't last as long as many players think they will.
