    Very good read from Chris Kluwe, who seems to be way, way smarter than the average punter. My question for y'all: Is it the leagues' responsibility to teach their players how to be adults?

    I like Kluwe a lot. I think his heart is in the right place.

    I don't know that it's the league's responsibility to save athletes from their own stupidity/ignorance, but it certainly wouldn't be a bad thing if they tried to do a little more to help them.

    I know they have clinics on how to take care of your money, but I highly doubt too many pay attention.

    They have ex-players come talk to rookies about this. Teams do this as well.

    Seems like something the unions should do.

    Because young playas in the NBA and NFL would pay about as much attention to a seminar on money management as they did to a health class about birth control.
