If you haven't seen "We're the Millers," which is pretty damn funny, they address this very phrase.  At one point some jerkoff comes along in the movie and every sentence he ends with "know what I'm sayin?"    The main character in the movie, after the third time of hearing this, responds "Yes, I speak English, but thanks for checking in again with me on that." :lol:

He spoke pretty fast, but I could understand everything he said. Not sure that really belongs in this thread.

One does not simply throw towards Cameron Sutton.

It's a product of the high school football stars getting passed in all of their classes because they make the school look good by going to college and playing football and the college football stars getting out of going to class because of their "practice schedule" and because they make the college look good by playing football.

Most athletes in general have the option of not learning anything, as long as they're good enough. Thankfully some choose to learn anyway, but a lot don't. By the time they get to college it's almost too late to learn to speak correctly, especially if they're good enough to stay two years and get out. High school principals, athletic directors, and teachers ought to be the ones ensuring that these guys can speak by the time they get to college or the NFL

Yeah, that's the worst part of all, because they don't stay millionaires long...

We seriously ought to make financial classes part of high school and college's core classes.

Mostly they're getting screwed over by other people... I imagine it's probably a smaller-scale version of someone in poverty winning the lottery... Suddenly all of their distant cousins, friends, neighbors, etc. are asking for "just $200, you can afford it" and get pissed if they're told no. Over time, between that and overpaying on big purchases like houses and cars where the salespeople know how to milk more money away, all the money disappears and it's not helping the economy as much as it could.

If I ever win the lottery I'll certainly help some people out, but anybody that comes and begs (Or even worse, demands) for money will not be allowed to speak to me again. Football players in the pro's need to have a similar outlook... So many players today come from poverty and don't know what it's like to have a lot of money or to speak formally before a whole bunch of people, and that's not a knock on the players; it's not entirely their fault. I wish more football coaches would place a higher emphasis on learning and self-improvement, especially in high school where the football stakes aren't as high.
