    The managers of those eateries must have been hating life when Vince left Tenn. Suddenly they had to explain a big dropoff in biz! :lmao:

    I will assume Vince wasn't eating alone but picking up the tab for the entourage ie hanger ons who probably have better things to do these days rather than hang around VY.

    >>>>During his five seasons in Tennessee, Young was a frequent visitor to Cheesecake, TGI Fridays and a number of similar fine dining establishments. The patronage wasn’t the problem; rather it was the sizable bills Young would rack up during visits.<<<<



    Cheescake and TGI Fridays are fine dining establishments? :lmao2:

    The thought process "You can't go broke spending $250k on Cheesecake Factory if you're a multi millionaire" is precisely how multi millionaires go broke spending $250k on Cheesecake Factory. Just the fact that one thinks spending $250k a year on Cheesecake Factory is a reasonable idea, regardless of how much money they make, indicates they're an idiot when it comes to money, don't have the foggiest idea how to conserve their wealth. Unless you're Warren Buffett rich, money is never a bottomless pit.

    It must have taken a concerted effort on his part, considering nothing on the menu costs over $12.

    He wasnt ordering from the "two for $20" menu, that's for sure.


    Read a book by a sports agent at least 25 year ago.. The guy repped Eric Dickerson and many others. Said he always tried to structure contracts that took less money up front, and provided for the players entire lifetime with annuitys, etc...

    He had one player who was guarenteed $100,000 a year for life for example.

    He said that to a man, the players almost exclusively rejected these deals.. they wanted the money up front, and would spend it on entourages, etc... hanger ons, and long lost relatives who suddenly appeared in their lives.

    Famous quote from the book... "show me a list of guys 10 years out of football who are financially secure and then show me a list of guys who are dead broke... the first one is very short, the other.. goes on and on."
