    You're kidding right? A friend of mine's sister used to date Phil Esposito when he was a player and there was a bar called "King's Corner" in Leominster where they used to hang out. They did pre-season in Wallace Civic Center in Fitchburg. Trust me, the things that went on upstairs at King's Corner would make most NFL players blush.

    Wrong on all three counts. They have a 401(k) and a pension. They get 5 years of post-retirement health insurance. There is an EAP for retired players (as well as active players), etc.

    My company, like most in the US, does not offer any pension or health care after my employment is terminated. That's my responsibility entirely and I am good with that. I don't feel bad for these players at all other than basic human compassion.

    I have a friend who was a backup player in the NYFL for a few years. He had a pension that he could draw from for different amounts depending on what age he started. Even at his lower pay he was able to invest in a few things that leave him in good financial shape now.

    There's also the connections that an NYFL players makes that can open doors for ex-players that wouldn't be open to many other people.

    I'm not a huge fan of the NYFL, but if someone played for as long as Browner did he should be in a better position financially than he ended up. Not set for life like some of the top paid players but certainly not broke.

    As for his brutalizing his ex that doesn't really have anything to do with football.

    If this is correct, so browner has 5 years. He'll get $28200 per month at 55. Or 338 k per year? My heart no longer bleeds for the players and their pensions.

    My first job started in the 80's will net me $280 per month ( starting at 65) for 14 years service. Since then I have no pensions in the private sector. It's a good thing there are 401 k's.

    A lot of time they hire a friend from childhood, and the friend ALWAYS seems to **** them over.

    If you think the rate of criminality among NHL players is even remotely comparable to those in the NFL, I feel sorry for you. You're the one who has to be kidding.
