Lighten up geezz. It’s called gambling.You want to call everyone the go to Vegas chumps? Or the horse races? You should like an old angry black man mad at the world. Nobody is making anybdy do something they dont want to. Speaking of DEHUMANIZING people… have many times did you call people who did invest,a chump? Don’t refer Foster to a brand but compare investers/gamblers to chumps? That’s okay, right? You’re an freaking idiot.

What will his brand be? I mean, he s not jordan. What revenue streams will he have? Fox or espn analyst at best. This is a new pyramid scheme, and yes this is 21st century slavery!

But logically, because a footballer lifetime income mainly comes from the time they are on the field, and therefore, would it be normal that he will save part of it in the form of investment in anticipation of future income when he retires. According to what I read, in that case, this poor chap can potentially be paying a lot more than the 20% he thinks he is going to pay (assuming everything goes as planned.) because the future income from the investment will be subject to that 20% charge as well. In that sense, what about if he loses money from his investment, can he claim it back from Fantex (just like tax credit)? I simply cannot see how this can work – too many loopholes and too many ifs.

Everybody is just a “brand” of one sort or the other. In health care you are called a “tier.” The whole football industry is a slave trade or tax rip off to build the arenas, and a eco hazard, to boot. Additionally, a majority of those players are all tore up physically, and injected with steroids at their injury sites so they can continue playing. I have seen many that when their carrier is over, usually by 35 – 40, they have so many injuries, they end up on oxycontin (opium) for the rest of their lives. They also need treatment for brain injuries and the mental health issues associated. The sick system that is current America, likes to incarcerate young black men for smoking pot, but look what is going on behind the looking glass in this foul industry. The Coliseum lives, invented by a twisted emperor, ram on slaves.

I would think if 80% isn’t sufficient for survival there may be a problem and I assume pension could not be considered income. How much control over expenses and income would be retained would make for a complex contract.
