Michael Vick's Financial Woes: Buzzards Circle the Pro Athlete

Never would I be a Michael Vick apologist, but Lester Munson's "Bad advice, bad decisions: the loss of Michael Vick's fortune" piece on ESPN.com tells a remarkable tale of one advisor (mostly financial) after another seeming to line up for a (larger than deserved) piece of Vick's money.

Reading a story like this demonstrates why exactly the NFL holds a mandatory multiple day rookie orientation to prepare aspiring stars for everything that comes with the package of being a pro athlete.

Quite the cautionary tale...
