    "John Daly says he has lost between $50 million and $60 million during 12 years of heavy gambling and that it has become a problem that could "flat-out ruin me" if he doesn't bring it under control."

    That's ten million which could have gone to the fight for aids, to John Hopkins cancer hospital, to the Boys and Girls Club, that's ten million that could have gone to better the community, stick it to the IRS, as well as further himself in the public's eye's (hat trick), but it was thrown away, :mad:

    Heh, and barkley is a rabid republican as well... funny how these 'morally righteous' conservatives tend to be the ones who sin the most.

    Limbaugh? Drug addict.

    O'Reilly? Adulterer/sexual predator

    Bill Bennet? Addicted to gambling.

    Heh.

    Totally wasted money...

    I agree with you about how the money could have been put to better use. Instead of leaving a legacy of helping the less fortunate he is going to leave a legacy of leaving some fat cat casino owners happy. These guys lose touch with the value of a dollar.

    I remember hearing a story before SB 36 that he actually bet like $50,000 on the Pats.

    Why are you stereotyping them? Sure some are hypocrites, but you're a hypocrite to call them hypocrites.

    Sadly...former star athletes are ripe for gambling problems. They have alot of cash and in some ways have become addicted to adrenaline rushes. It has to be harder for them to quit than the average person...a very sad story for sure considering all the good that money was capable of.

    No...they lose it all because they think that they cannot lose.

    I won't shed a tear for these inept idiots.

    How the phuck can you lose 50 to 60 million dollars?

    Mike Tyson takes the cake though...

    1 step up from cattle...

    The only winners in gambling are the Casino's, look at the development of Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, love folks who think they have figured out a system...
