That kind of money can do a lot for a family when he retires by the age 32 or 33... And once you pay taxes on that, pay the agent, etc it's probably half that. so i can see both sides. I would just like him back. he's a great part of our identity and protects a lot of guys from having to drop the mitts.

so if he retires at 32 or 33 he will not have any other means to make a living till the day he dies?

i would destroy my body and take that chance for a quarter of what he is asking for and if it is not worth it to him he can take his chances with mcdonalds minimum wage salary.
