#2550211 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

You know what, people make mistakes all the time.  All you can do is fix what you can and have to and then move on.  Look backward and learn and move forward.  That's how I try and live life.

They shouldn't have been handling his money in the first place.  I'm not sure why that's so hard for people to pick up on.  Do any of you have a joint bank account with your parents?  Do any of you let your parents buy things in your name, or with your money?  When was the last time you looked at your bank account and thought "hmmm, mom didn't spend as much as I thought she would?".  Never?  That's because only stupid people let others (including their parents) spend their money. 

You've never been married have you?
Haha

Sometimes you make mistakes....JJ trusted his parents, Fedorov trusted a financial advisor and gave him millions and millions to invest...that didn't work out too good for Sergei.  He thought he was hiring a professional and JJ thought he was in good hands with his parents.  Greed kills and nobody is immune to now and again.

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.

 

 

Agreed. 

 

When I first saw the headline I thought "what a moron."  But reading more about it and hearing what his parents did puts  it in a whole different light for me. 

 

I guess you can blame him for being naive and not picking up on the problem earlier, but it's his friggin parents.  The guy is likely busy playing hockey and trusting that his mother will be handling things and looking out for his best interests. 

 

Not having an agent didn't help.  Agents are often evil, but a necessary one in the entertainment business.

Not saying I'd trust him with millions of dollars, but you can't call him stupid for thinking his parents would have his best interest at heart.

He made a mistake.

The last person I'd trust to handle my multi-million dollar estate is my mother too.  She's a secretary.  No matter how much I love her that doesn't make her capable of handling millions of dollars in assets intelligently or responsibly.  I know this.  Jack Johnson, however, doesn't.  That's why he's an idiot. 
 
NOTE TO ALL PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES:
Hire professionals to take care of your money.  You wouldn't let your parents repair your car, fill your cavities, or install your water heater.  Why would you let them handle your millions of dollars in wealth?

my Dads really good with cars.
And he helped put in my water heater.
And he pulled a bunch of my baby teeth.

#2551913 Doggone it Danny Cleary

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 November 2014 - 03:50 PM

As much as I despise him as a player, he is afterall, human.  And a very caring and giving human at that! Very Cool.

I am a Cleary fan, even with the knowledge that he must step aside soon for the younger kids.  In the meanwhile, he brings veteran presence to the locker room, and intangibles like heart and desire.  He's contributing.  Bravo, Daniel.

Agreed.

 

Cleary came into the league as a 1st round pick by Chicago...He thought he'd have it easy because he was a top player at ever other level of the game prior to the NHL.

 

He found out the hard way how one can be on the outside - looking in...Lucky for him that Holland saw some redeeming quality, and gave him a chance...This experience is what Cleary can pass along to the youngsters within the Wings organization.

Its nice to have a thread where Cleary isn't being treated like a pile of garbage.

 

It's awesome when you hear about these guys doing things like this........good guy!

I don't hate Cleary but don't see him keeping his spot on the team after all the injuries heal. But when he does things like this makes me feel better about him wearing the wheel a bit longer.

#2550011 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by kipwinger on 19 November 2014 - 12:58 PM

Weiss is going down to gr for a conditioning stint, still haven't heard if datsyuk good to go.

And we have a game tomorrow, someone's coming up, right?

 

No.  Weiss still needs to be on the Red Wings roster to do his conditioning assignment.  In order to activate him from IR they need the spot and the cap space, as both will still count against the Wings while he's in GR.  Since they started the season with Datsyuk (and then Franzen) on IR they didn't need to send Nestrasil back down, but now that Weiss is healthy they need his spot.  They'll likely just play with one fewer guy in the press box for the game (or two) that Weiss is in GR.  There really is no big secret here.  Nestrasil waived, and Weiss activated after Nestrasil clears.
