That's predominantly a factor with NFL players because their shelf-life in the league is so short and many are more inclined for cultural reasons to live a lavish lifestyle. Any individual with half a brain would recognize the limited income window for what it is, and plan accordingly. I strongly doubt a guy like Drury has been mismanaging his money throughout his career.
