The idea that college football players spend money before they have it assuming they will soon be rich is extremely well known. Said athletes actually admitting that they blow money before even getting it is a bit more rare. Thankfully, we have idiots like Channing Crowder who flap their gums and tell us all about their complete lack of judgment displayed before reaching the NFL.
Pro Football Talk passed along a tremendous little blurb from Sports Radio Interviews on Tuesday, in which Crowder blasts Mel Kiper Jr. for misfiring with his prediction of where the linebacker would be drafted.
“Yeah I watch (the hype leading up to the draft) and all,” Crowder explained. “Mel Kiper and all, he messed me over, he lied to me said I was top-20 had me go out and spend X amount of dollars and then owe the bank stuff. So I don’t know the guys; they’re guessing just like we guess; I can guess who the Dolphins are going to take too. But I look at it a little bit and hear the experts I guess they call them to hear what they got to say.”
