    Vince Young ‏@VinceYoung
    It’s a shame to see people revel in and rally around negativity in the media but I guess it’s to be expected. Yes, I need a job, who doesn’t

    Yes, I want to be out there playing the game I love and earning a paycheck, who wouldn't?

    We are working to rectify some unfortunate finical losses, which stemmed from betrayal by those I trusted most.

    But these rumors are disheartening & just untrue . I’ll keep pushing through regardless. God Bless. Trill

    That is kind of a paternalistic. If they want to blow all their money, isn't that their right?

    I would hope that if you invested 26 million, you would get better than a less than 1% return on your money. If that is all you are getting, might as well just put it under your mattress.

    Yes, but it can also benefit the NFL itself to be a bit paternalistic. Image can mean a lot for the NFL. Being seen as an organization that looks out for its own only helps their image. It certainly won't hurt it.

    And there were folks on this board that thought Vince Young was a superior choice to Tony Romo.


    Amazing.

    since your tax is probably not more than 33% in the US, at most he would make $300,000.00 which is still barely over 1%. He would still just as well by sticking it in his mattress.

    well I guess you forgot that he would not have gotten the whole $26 million anyway; even with tax shelters he probably only got about $15 million between federal and state taxes.

    Maybe he should have asked Carson Palmer for advice.

    What was so "Infamous" about that TD? (Unless you're a USC fan).



    Join the club, Vinny.

    There are options out there. Join the army or something Vinny, and quit crying.

    scoring in the single digits on your Wunderlic does matter? Maybe not on the field but certainly OFF the field: poor judgement and generally stupid equal bankruptcy. I don't revel in it the way some do on here but in the end: let him get a real job. He had his chance and blew it.

    Yep you are definitely right. It was only infamous to the USC fans. Did not mean a thing to UT at all. Sure no one even remembers that play or who Vince even is.
