32 Mega-Sized Mansions Owned By NFL Players

Football season is nearly upon us again, and that means fans are gearing up to watch the games and get extremely emotional about their favorite teams and their favorite players.

But another issue will start to come up as well as the season gets underway- the overpayment of players, which becomes an even more heated discussion as the economic crisis continues to rage on.

NFL players make so much money they don't even know what to do with it all, so many sink a chunk of their fortune into a fat pad so they can live like sports royalty.

It's both sickening and impressive how much money some players are willing to pay for their dream mansion- Tom Brady paid $20 million for the mansion pictured above, which is truly way too much home.

Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks, on the other hand, paid $2.3 million for this "modest" mansion, which is almost ten times less as Tom and yet still plenty fancy.

You're right medieval, he has the right to buy as much home as he pleases. He has the right to buy the world's largest swimming pool and fill it with Jell-O for one afternoon of fun. And the rest of us have the right to judge him for wasting money on things he doesn't actually need rather than donating that money to worthy causes. The rich have the right to spend their money however they please, but everyone else in the world has the right to judge them. And yeah, that house is too much house for three people -I don't even see how you can see that as an opinion, who needs that much space for three people?

Well, Zeon, I never said you were not entitled to your opinion. You're perfectly entitled to voice your opinions, just as I am entitled to voice my opinion when I disagree with yours. That's the way discussion works, right? As for your original opinion, perhaps you would like to explain your method for determining when someone has "too much house?" If I have a billion dollars, what are the limits that you intend to impose upon my house building activities? And please be sure to provide details regarding your reasoning regarding what is "too much" and what is "just enough." What are your qualifications for making these determinations? Incidentally, in the original post, you didn't say that "in your opinion" Brady has too much house. You said Brady has "truly way too much home" and referred to it as "sickening." That sounded like you were purporting to state fact, not opinion. And finally, I did not "jump down your throat." I used no profanity and made no personal attacks on you. Believe me, if I "jump down your throat," you'll know it. Cheers!

Medieval--I'm with you. Our modern day disdain for freedom, capitalism, and (what used to be) the American way of Life is reaching a crescendo for those old enough to remember different times. Our youth today is more concerned with demonizing "the haves" than with the true enemies of our world. Of course, our educational system and the media play the largest part in it. Our youth today is more concerned with fame, body image, gender labels, "shamers" and "haters," than with the age-old struggle to preserve a person's right to do whatever ridiculous (or not) thing they want to do (provided, of course, that a person's actions does not impinge on the rights or safety of another).
Let's just hope our culture is "cyclic" in these regards.

So you're entitled to your opinion but I'm not entitled to mine? Jumping down someone's throat because you don't like or agree with their opinion is pointless, you're not going to change my mind and I'm not trying to change yours. So just accept that opinions are like a-holes, realize to yourself that mine stinks and move on. Otherwise you're just trying to start an argument over a difference of opinion, which is an utter waste of time.
