What do you think would happen if an agent told a 23 year-old athlete who never had money that he was going to give the athlete $1 million of his $5 million earned that year and "put away the rest." The athlete would think he was getting screwed.
I get the system and the agents job but I'm just saying, about the only way to reduce this problem is the way contracts are structured. May he it would take the pro sport leagues changing the style but just pointing out we will continue to hear these stories more and more, which is sad.
