    Re: Khreem Smith is broke - Must play for food & shelter


    It's hard not to root for this guy. Keep working hard KS, and good things will come. Even if you don't make the final cuts, your desire, effort, and hard work will be noticed.

    Never give up Khreem. That determination will open doors my friend.

    Hey I do feel for him. I'm glad to see he is still fighting to make it right.

    You may have had a point...but I missed it due to the fact I puked half way through trying to read over that all caps B.S.

    Your Caps lock key is typically found near the 'A' key on the keyboard.
    Try hitting that button...it does wonders for your street cred round these parts..

    Sorry guys, but I don't agree with this assesment.
    I understnad what your saying but just don't agree with it.
    It states in the article that the women took him to court once they found out he made the team and started making that money.
    The parent who has custody of the child can take you into court over and over if your income changes from one year to the next.
    They figure being that you are making more money they should be able to get more money for the children (which I actually agree witth in amny ways, but at times the law don't see the greay areas, and this might be one of those situations).


    Regardless I understand both points of view, but regardless I find myself rooting form him to make "A" team.
    It don't need to be the Vikes but if he can't make the squad then hopefully he finds a home elsewhere.
    Good luck KS!

    Re: Khreem Smith is broke - Must play for food & shelter

    I think we should cut his ass. Why give him the minimum if he's just going to blow it, bitch to the media, and try to maybe entice the coaching staff to give him another chance to feed his family.


    Oh No someone can't make a living off of playing sports alone?! What ever will he do!
    It's truly sad that he had 100% of his income taken though.

    You hear wrong. Jail is not free. You get charged so much per day for being there. If you want to get out via Huber law to work it costs you even more.

    I can also can tell you've never been divorced. It's not like he wasn't paying, he wasn't paying enough. It happened to me as well. She went after him for more money & got it. The courts can make that retroactive meaning the whole time the courts took to settle the matter, they can make the raised amount effective from that day she filed or from the time the courts settle it until you are official notified. So he was already in arears the day he was notified.

    In my case the divorce took almost two years. I had one child & she had one. The court ordered me to pay $175 month to her for support of the one child, plus I still had to support the one I had.

    One November morning the lawyer got the official papers & I had to pay her $650 a month. $350 for both kids & $300 for spousal maintenance. The court made their decision in May, but did not get the paper work thru the system to the lawyers for 6 months, but nevertheless the payments were supposed to begin in May even though my lawyer or myself was not notified..

    I was slapped immediately with arears in the amount of $650 x 6 moths & it was tagged as not paying child support. Keep in mind I was supporting the child I had plus paying her $175 a month. I went thru holy hell getting that mess cleaned up, but still ended up owing $650 minus the $175 x 6 months before they cleared me as a dead beat dad.

    The youngest is 24 now & I haven't paid had to pay child support for 6 years, but I still have to pay my ex $350 a month in spousal maintenance. That never goes away & I'll be paying it the rest of my life, even after I'm retired until the day I die. Every two years, she gets a raise whether I get one from my work or not.

    I didn't get screwed alot when I was married, but I sure as hell got screwed afterwards.

    Re: Khreem Smith is broke - Must play for food & shelter

    Lol where i live they don't charge you to be in jail. If you don't pay what are they going to do? Put you in jail? or kick you out for not paying jail fees?

    Okay yeah i understand. The government will stiff you every time. My dad has had 2 divorces as has my mom, in my lifetime. And my stepdad also got screwed hard when he and his first wife divorced.

    None of them made $200 000 per year. And they could all afford food afterwards. Strange....

    I'm assuming you could afford food and maybe even a shack to live in with what you had leftover.

    To feel bad for someone who got the shit end of the stick isn't necessary. The government will fuck you more than you will ever fuck in your whole life. My asshole is bleeding and I'm only 17.

    This guy is broke for his own reasons (cocaine, is my guess lol.) He spent some percentage of that 200 000 dollars. And made the decisions that made him broke.

    Unless he was in court and the judge declared "she gets 100% of everything you own. Even madden." He's to blame and he doesn't deserve our sympathy or empathy or Coach Childress'. I know lots of poor people and i don't think this guy has kept in such good shape over the last year on a diet of white bread and water.

    Professional athletes should feel sorry for us not visa-versa.

    So should he make the roster automatically cause he needs money?
