    Koren in trouble again...

    Koren Robinson is North Carolina's third-worst tax delinquent

    Damn, even when doing something wrong he's still not the best.

    Koren Robinson was a bust in the NFL and then couldn't even hack it in the UFL, getting suspended by the upstart league for missing meetings. And now he has a problem of another kind.

    The Charlotte Observer reports that Robinson owes $497,502 in taxes to the state of North Carolina, where he was born and raised and played college football at North Carolina State.

    Link didn't work for me.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    lol!

    They need to make these athletes attend a mandatory money management course. It amazes me how may players with multi-million dollar contracts can go broke or in debt.

    That's because I screwed it up, didn't realize it was too long to paste into the URL box.

    Tax issues are a tricky thing. I wouldn't jump to any conclusions based on this. It's very easy for a pro-athlete to have these types of issues. Could be he was actually a resident of another state, but his home state wasn't notified.

    Any pro athlete with a half way decent advisor will make there tax home in a non-taxed state. Even Joe "minnesota" Mauer is technically a resident of Florida.

    My point still stands.

    If you're in the position, where a small screwup like filing some paperwork means you could owe 500K+, you should probably talk to somebody who knows what they're doing.

    These guys go from having no money, or a regular household income usually, to being millionaires. They have no clue how to manage that kind of money.

    exactly instead of throwing money at the hangers on invest it in a decent accountant, course that would be too simple.

    I don't think anyone disagreed

    They have a thing at the rookie thing that goes about this.. Would be nice if they continued it further however

    But I can definitley see why some of these athletes do what they do.. I get my tax refund check back and thats like triple of a paycheck and I go nuts with it
