Why must you assume that he's just another dumb jock that doesn't know what to do with his money?
oh yea, because you are a racist.
So soon people forget that this was a kid that could have been making 6 didgets after his JR year in college but choose to stay in school and compete for his team and complete his degree because both of his parents are educators. Who's to say he isn't capable of making smart decisions with his money?
If it was indeed his choice to skip this meet rather than the meet promoters then he obviously has his head geared towards the future and is willing to make conservative decisions to maximize what that future may hold. Why couldn't he do the same with his money?
You made it race based, I made it industry based, same as insurance companies do. That and the fact that he skipped a major diamond meet already this year (how much money that time?) due to "financial reason".
I work in probabilities. He may be doing great, but I don't know why he'd quote financial reasons as a reason to miss a meet that makes you money earlier this season if his finances are in order.
Lastly, how many wealthy educators do you know? Do you actually know their finances or simply their facade?
I actually know the Dix family really well. It is extremely biased to say that he just jumped out and bought a Benz with 23 inch rims and his name in the headrest that he has not attempted to prepare for his future after track. Of course your gonna go out and buy a few nice things after all the hard work. Its natural. But to assume that he thinks that money is gonna continue to come would be irrational and i know he's a rational person. He has assets, trust and believe that.
