    Clinton Portis made enough money during his NFL career in Denver and Washington that he should be set for life: In nine NFL seasons, Portis made more than $40 million.

    But Portis isn’t just not set for life, he’s broke. Portis filed for bankruptcy this week, saying he has debts of more than $5 million that he can’t afford to pay.

    We noted in June that Portis had a debt to the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas of $287,178.56, and that the IRS accused him of failing to pay $401,432.18 in federal income taxes in 2006, and $57,187.61 in federal income taxes in 2010. Portis also lists debts of $500,000 to his mother, $500,000 to Entertainment Tonight correspondent and former sideline reporter Nischelle Turner, $412,000 in “domestic support obligations” to four different women and $175,000 in car loans.

    Portis’s failed business ventures have included sinking $8 million into a casino that went belly-up, and putting $2 million into a “wealth management” firm that was later described as a Ponzi scheme.

    The 34-year-old Portis rushed for more than 1,200 yards in five of his nine NFL seasons.

    As often happens, the agents end up with more money from a player's career than the player does. Smart vs. stupid is the true source of most wealth inequality.

    So after taxes and his agent, he probably made about $20 million. I guarantee you if I made $20 million, I would never go broke, never work, and live a damn fine lifestyle. If I was making that kind of scratch, I would put 50-75% in safe, but decent interest investments and live off the interest (actually pull out the principle at the same amount of the interest to avoid the short term capital gains hit).

    Here's a tip, don't invest the majority of your stock portfolio in costumes and novelty sunglasses...

    NFL players can't say no. If they grew up in a single parent household the first thing they say when they turn pro is I'm going to buy my mom and grandmother a house. Naturally the mother turns on the son when everything turns to shit and he goes broke. The next thing the NFL player does is make sure to impregnate as many women as possible. The Black Man cannot wear a rubber. It's not going to happen. Half the women want to get pregnant anyway to go after the child support. They have to buy a big SUV and at least three sports cars. Waste money on overpriced bling when they try to sell it back they end up with 10 cents on the dollar. That turns $1.5 million into $150,000. The problem is that $1.5 million was actually $3 million before taxes and agent fees. Get fucked in the real estate market by buying a house with the priced jacked up because that's the house they wanted. They carried a mortgage on it but put down a huge down payment. Now when they try sell it it's below what they paid so there goes the down payment or most of it. Buy every new electronic gadget known to man and custom made suits and shoes. All you can do with clothes is give them to Goodwill and those electronic items are outdated a year after you bought them. Business investments, Portis got fucked over buying a Bingo casino in Alabama. Don't go to an established financial advisor, go to the man who your middle linebacker said treats the brother's right. Then find out a few years later that guy fucked you 50 ways to Sunday. The middle linebacker would know, he can barely read or write and was passed through every grade due to athletic ability. Your busted, Portis! Case Closed!!
