It is a huge culture problem. Athletes want to live like the movie stars and singers they see, but what they don't realize is that those people are going to make money until they are dead off their work, whereas sports is a 3-15 year window to make money. This is also why I say that paying athletes in college won't make a difference, because they will just waste it and always want more. There needs to be a change somewhere to help reduce this stuff. The leagues do clinics but it seems that the statistics have only risen since this started.
