Jared Allen rips rookies who waste money on jewelry

Allen_Jared

Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has made tens of millions of dollars in his NFL career, but he doesn’t look like it: He’s known for wearing jeans, tattered shirts and a haircut that looks like he did it himself. So when Allen sees NFL players who look like a million bucks but haven’t earned a million bucks, he does a double take.

In an interview on KTAR in Phoenix, Allen said he shook his head while watching the NFL draft and saw players who haven’t earned a dime playing football yet but have clearly spent thousands of dollars on watches and earrings.

“I think the bigger disappointment was to see the jewelry on these kids’ arms and ears,” Allen said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “Are you kidding me? You haven’t played a down in the league yet and thousands and thousands of dollars on these kids’ arms and I’m like, ‘You guys understand you’re getting drafted into a lockout where you don’t know what rules you’re playing under or how much money you possibly might get?’”

Allen is right: Last month Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, who was drafted last year, was sued over hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid debts to jewelry stores, and he’s far from the only player who has had trouble paying debts related to gold and diamonds. Spending that kind of money on jewelry is, frankly, stupid.

Allen also acknowledged, however, that he’s a little biased against the players he saw on TV during the draft because he still has something of a chip on his shoulder over being passed over until the fourth round of the 2004 draft. And he said he was also bothered by the mere fact that players were embracing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on stage at Radio City Music Hall, noting that those players were hugging the man who is leading the lockout that’s preventing them from signing the lucrative rookie contracts they want.

“I don’t like anybody who was drafted ahead of me,” Allen said. “Kind of pisses me off. You know it did. I honestly think it would’ve been cool to see all of the players elect to not show up. I think that would’ve given a really big sign to the NFL. You want us to appease you guys by coming to this show — because that’s what the NFL Draft is on TV, it’s a show for their fans and a show for the league — you want us to do that? Then let’s get this deal done, let’s quit locking us out, and let’s get back to work.”

And until players do get back to work, Allen advises them to save their money.

    Maybe the rookies who waste money on jewlery should rip overpaid DE’s that go the first half of a season with only 1 sack …

  5. phinheads says: May 6, 2011 1:48 PM

    Nothing like fostering union solidarity

  6. minnesconsin says: May 6, 2011 1:48 PM

    far and away the most (and perhaps the ONLY) intelligent thing jared allen has ever said.

  7. mikebyrne1502 says: May 6, 2011 1:49 PM

    I thought the players were the individuals trying to get the Rookie Wage scale into place? I’ve seen Jared Allen on T.V. and he isn’t the smartest individual so why should I trust what he saying? He wants the lockout to end, we’ll quit making it a big deal when your bosses are asking for their cut.

    Because gold isn’t a valuable commodity these days? Get with times, Michael.

    It makes me wanna puke seeing these kids wearing all that inappropriate, gaudy bling. But spending it on gold and precious gems isn’t the bad investment you’re making it out to be. New $100,000+ cars are a far worse investment.

    Just sayin’…

  9. iamtalkingsolistenandlearn says: May 6, 2011 1:51 PM

    Tell them rookies Jared. They are only future arrest figures and bankruptcy lawyer clients.
    But Jared don’t forget. The league only locked out the players cause you all got up from the middle of negotiations and decertified, running to the courthouse like sprinters.
    When you hire a career lawyer to look out for the interests of football players, then you have made a very foolish choice. Lawyers only want to steer situations into what they can rack up huge billable hours

    The players/”partners”/inmates decision to put their careers in the hands of a career ambulance chaser was just plain stupid.
    Their blind following of his strategy is just plain stupid.
    Failure to recognize that DEmo Smith does not care about current, past or present players but is only interested in racking up billable hours and getting paid like Gene Upshaw did is stupid.
    Failure to step up and sternly remind DEmo Smith that he works for YOU and had better listen to the players concerns, wants, and wishes is stupid.

    Since you players/”partners”/inmates continueally make STUPID decisions the owners must act like your parents and take away your priveleges until you can show better judgement and maturity.
    Now remember, you did this to yourself.

    …and he’s far from the only player who has had trouble paying debts related to gold and diamonds. Spending that kind of money on jewelry is, frankly, stupid.

    Actually, with the greenback being devalued by Obama’s decision to print more and more currency, gold would actually be a very smart investment right now.

    As for Jared Allen’s comments, perhaps he should be advised to shut the hell up and mind his own business. If a rookie felt he needed financial advice, I very much doubt he’d ask Allen for it.

  11. davekiid says: May 6, 2011 1:53 PM

    I have more respect for Mr. Allen after reading this article.

  12. easyeddie says: May 6, 2011 1:53 PM

    He’s right on the bling but very wrong on taking part in the draft.

  13. rcali says: May 6, 2011 1:53 PM

    The players who waste their money will be the first ones to claim how short their careers are and that is why fans don’t want to here that nonsense.

  14. pacificamjr says: May 6, 2011 1:53 PM

    what about veterans with horrible hair cuts?

  15. allforfunnplay says: May 6, 2011 1:54 PM

    from the rookie’s stand point both the NFLPA and the NFL are trying to screw them with a rookie wage scale so I ‘m not sure if they should have allegiances to either.

  16. dbo2020 says: May 6, 2011 1:54 PM

    Wasn’t this guy “Mr. DUI” just a couple of seasons ago? Now he’s the model of good behaviour and financial prudence? Keep up the good behaviour for another few years and then I’ll be on your side J.A.

  17. hobartbaker says: May 6, 2011 1:55 PM

    Jared gave his wife a nice safety whistle on a string when he proposed.

  18. descendency says: May 6, 2011 1:55 PM

    They should waste it on bad haircuts, am I right???

    As if it’s the owners fault the players want more than their fair share.

  21. vadog says: May 6, 2011 1:57 PM

    There’s nothing wrong, I repeat nothing wrong, with buying and displaying gaudy, expensive jewelry……as long as you can afford it. Using credit built upon speculative future earnings is the very definition of “high risk.”

  23. whatswiththehate says: May 6, 2011 1:58 PM

    ‘“I don’t like anybody who was drafted ahead of me,” Allen said. “Kind of pisses me off.”
    ———————
    Got to respect his honesty. At least he’s not like these media folks who hide their jealous in regards to these athletes behind empty scrutiny and blameshifting.

    And I will dis-agree with Mr Allen as far as the rookies at this years draft was concerned. I watched the entire draft last week, and except for maybe 3 guys, there really wasn’t much flash. Unless you count their “Church going” nice suits.
    I hope Allen didn’t want them to show up in jeans and tee-shirts..

    But then again, that would have been quite a visual if the 25 invited draftees all did show up last week in jeans, tees, and sneakers. Could you imagine the look on Roger Goddell’s face…Price-less..LMBO

  24. CJ says: May 6, 2011 1:58 PM

    I find it concerning–even disturbing–that the one guy talking sense during this whole lockout is an individual who wears a mullet and usually comes off as crazy.

  25. eaglesfan290 says: May 6, 2011 1:59 PM

    I have always wondered who pays for the suits and bling that those guys wear to the draft.

    I agree with Allen that it’s a waste of money, but it’s also a free country.

    I don’t agree that it would have been “cool” to see a boycott of the Draft…………the Draft is for the fans and the kids being drafted……..so sending a message to the Owners at the expense of a once and a lifetime experience for the rookies and a show so many of the fans love is just stupid.

    Now every once and a while you have an unedited real opinion from a player, doesn’t sound like Allen cares much about the fans all he wants is the Players to win at all costs! How much money is enough, and when will both sides grow up I just want football back and I want a fair deal for both sides.

  26. duanethomas says: May 6, 2011 1:59 PM

    Having had a relative that played in the NFL for some I observed how those guys would waste their money. Its wasn’t black or white, but cultural. The urban guys would waste their money on cars, jewelry and clothes. The rural guys would waste their money on ATV’s, exotic hunting gear, and boats. Both groups spent like their was no tomorrow, that’s why 75% of them end up experiencing extreme financial issues in retirement. A fews years ago I saw Allen on a exotic hunt with top of the line rifles and a guide, with his boys…..wonder how much that cost? Just saying…………………..

  27. scoops1 says: May 6, 2011 2:01 PM

    maybe the rookies should get together and Hog Tie Jared Allen

    You’re right, Jared. DWI lawyers make for much better investments.

  32. berniemadoffsides says: May 6, 2011 2:08 PM

    He’s probably referring to guys like Ponder, Costanzo, Gabbert, etc.

  33. coachstram says: May 6, 2011 2:11 PM

    Well, we now know there’s 2 things ( so far ) that Allen wont spend a dime on…….jewlery and a hair stylist.

  34. karlpilkington says: May 6, 2011 2:12 PM

    But…….. Gold is way up, surely these players are using this jewelry as an investment.

    HAHAHA, I crack myself up..

    @iamtalkingsolistenandlearn

    That post wasn’t epic, stop recycling it!

    Attacking rookies over the draft is stupid…let the kids live out their dream of getting drafted. It wasn’t their fault that they got drafted into a lockout…

    Jared Allen, the only guy from Los Gatos with a mullet…

    __________________________________
    I’ve always marveled at that myself. I think it was NFL Live yesterday that Schlereth also questioned it so it isn’t just Allen. My guess is that it’s the price agents pay for getting high profile clients…they advance them a bazillion dollars so the kids can buy bling. Anything else would be even less savory since probably well less than half of these kids have ever had any sort of job…ever.

  37. 1bigtex says: May 6, 2011 2:15 PM

    @pigeonpea

    “gold would be a very smart investment right now”
    At $1500 an ounce, I’m not sure how smart an investment gold is right now and I’m heavily invested in gold. The difference is, I got in at less than $280 an ounce.
    As to young guys blowing money on unimportant things; Check your wallet. Examine your cash carefully. Once you get past “In God We Trust”, there’s isn’t much in the way of instructions on that stuff. People who have never had much money have very little concept of how to manage money. There are plenty of relatively mature people who win the lottery and go broke within a few years. Young guys with limited maturity and the requisite possee and women with hands outstretched are easy marks.
    Tex Schram once observed that if all the world’s wealth was divided equally, the rich people would have most of their money back within a generation. Probably not far from the truth.

  38. vahawker says: May 6, 2011 2:19 PM

    Get back to the negotiating table that you walked away from and maybe a new deal could get done. Didn’t think of that one did you JA?

    Agreed. They elected DeSmith because they wanted to “stick it” to Troy Vincent because of the false allegations that he had leaked info on agents for his own personal gain. When all the investigations proved that to be false, it didn’t matter. He was black listed.

  45. radrhatr says: May 6, 2011 2:35 PM

    Jared couldn’t spend his rookie money on jewelry. He was drafted in round 4 and needed his money for lawyer and DUI fines.

  46. broncfanor says: May 6, 2011 2:39 PM

    He can hate on the league and the commish all he wants but the truth is the PLAYERS walked away, decertified and elected to go to court so SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

  47. ilovefoolsball says: May 6, 2011 2:39 PM

    “In India monkeys are pests and people don’t like to have them around. They catch monkeys by making cages with bars just big enough for monkeys’ fingers to slip through. Inside the cage is a shiny object that is very attractive to monkeys. When the monkeys see this shiny object, they slide their fingers through the bars to grab it and won’t let go. Rather, than letting go of the shiny object to be free, the monkeys hold on and get caught.”

    Many players have this mentality. They will risk their own financial future from the attraction of the shiny objects.

  48. Dave Austin says: May 6, 2011 2:42 PM

    I agree with Jared when it comes to amount of “bling” the guys were wearing but think he’s off the mark with his comments about attending the draft.

    He may have had a bad experience with the draft because he feels slighted that he wasn’t selected until the fourth round. But don’t deprive the incoming class of the once in a lifetime experience of walking across the stage and shaking hands with the commish.

    Why should they be penalized because Allen and the current group of players couldn’t get a deal worked out with the league and the owners?

  49. atdawntheysleep says: May 6, 2011 2:52 PM

    Agree with Allen, particularly the statement about Goodell. It rankles me that they are passionately hugging and groping Goodell when he is their mortal enemy and would love nothing more than to slit their financial throats. It’s bizarre to me.

    Blame Keyshawn Johnson(he was the one who started wearing diamond earring while playing), Sean Combs, Lil’ Wayne, and Jay-Z for being ignorant cultural pied pipers with respect to the bling. These four really helped get that garbage started in the mid-90s to the present. Though past athletes/entertainers also wore jewelry, Mr. T. nothwithstanding, they were never this gaudy and tacky.

  60. jpmelon says: May 6, 2011 3:36 PM

    @ JoeToronto

    The Fed prints money as it’s needed. Obamas stimulus and Bush’s TARP have increased the demand for money (printed or digital) exponentially. Hence, more is being printed to meet this demand which devalues the dollar.

    Back to the point, this guy is right about young guys wasting money on earrings…..especially this year with this locklout.

    However, he needs to place a little bit of the blame on D Smith…He let his ego get in front of his constituents desire to end the lockout.

  61. brasho says: May 6, 2011 3:54 PM

Too much outside in crap with the jewelry. people should like you for who you are not cause you have jewelry, cars, houses, etc. SAVE YOUR MONEY GUYS! cause many football, jocks go broke a few years after football, etc. They just do not know how to save and retire with the wife, kids, dog, and house with the pool in cali, etc. THAT’S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE WORKING FOR!

    Haven’t sold any yet. I think it goes a little higher, but I’m in a good profit position regardless. It’s much more important to know where the bottom of the market is as opposed to where the top of the market is. A wise man once told me that nobody ever went broke taking a profit.

    Even after picking up a couple DUI’s, Jared Allen has the nerve to judge other people. I guess he isn’t aware of the fact that all rookies invited to the Draft are loaned expensive pieces of jewelry to wear, out of hopes that they’ll one day become regular customers of the designer.

    They’re only spending the money they made playing college football, gees. What’s the big deal?

  86. zn0rseman says: May 6, 2011 5:37 PM

    I’m assuming that all of the guys who are calling Jared Allen “a drunk” have themselves never been behind a wheel once in their life after having a couple of beers.

    I say that with as much sarcasm as possible, knowing that most of them have done it and/or will do it.

  87. scoob766 says: May 6, 2011 5:53 PM

    Is Jared Allen still in the NFL? He didn’t retire with Favre, could have fooled me. I missed him all of last year with the wonderful season he had and all.

    I will continue to post same/similar statements regarding my position on the greedy, ungrateful players and their stupidity for entrusting their careers to a career lawyer.
    If you don’t like it, then DON’T READ THEM. But since you want to comment directly to me, have something intelligent to say, cause you are not funny, in depth, or quite frankly, interesting. I am however flattered that you seem to be following me and my posts all over this site. It shows I am interesting to you. Have captured your mind, and am the center of your visits to this site.
    On the other hand, it shows you to be easily manipulated, a follower, and generally a loser in real life.
    Anyway, continue to read cause i will continue to post.

    Gold is around $1400.00 an ounce so sounds like a solid investment to me

  92. footballrulz says: May 6, 2011 6:30 PM

    @1bigtex–to say you’re in a good profit position is one of the biggest understatements I’ve heard in a long time. Heck, you could even afford to hold on to it til it starts to swing down but as you know things fall faster than they rise (other than gas prices). Good job dude.

    As Warren Buffet says when everybody’s buying, time to sell. When everybody’s selling, time to buy. Good luck although I’d say you’ve probably slammed one out of the ballpark on this one.

  93. childressrulz says: May 6, 2011 6:30 PM

    I don’t mind that he has DUIs. I know tons of people with DUIs. It happens all the time mostly because the rates that triggers a DUI (.08%) Is fing retarded. It should be .2%. I cant believe it is even illegal. When on the road Sat and Fri nights you should expect people are drunk and make the decision to drive or not. I also don’t give a rats a$$ who’s relatives were killed by drunk drivers. They should have been paying more attention. Sorry that is just the way it is. The thing that pisses me off about Allen is the wasted money on mullet conditioner.

  94. airraid77 says: May 6, 2011 7:00 PM

    i am waiting for article that says the rich players should split 50-50 with the poor players……what the union want with the owners, the next step….

  95. henryjones20 says: May 6, 2011 7:13 PM

    maybe one day jared allen and all u haters will realizie that those rookies at the draft rent those big white gold watches from jacobs the jewler in nyc 4 the week and then return them. haha but i gess haters gona be haters.

  96. mediasloppy says: May 6, 2011 7:48 PM

    He lost the mullet when he got married. Personally, I wish he still had it. It was great fun for the fans. He quit drinking years ago after considering what his last name stands for and if he wanted to tarnish his families name. Instead of getting drunk he actually makes life fun as possible.

    Haters will be haters though…

    You are either trolling for flames, or, if you believe what you wrote, you are “fing retarded”.
    .08 is pissed, and .20 is unable to stand, much less drive a 1 to 2 ton vehicle at 50 mph or any speed.
    Getting t-boned at an intersection or slammed into from behind at a red light by a drunk driver is the [i]victim’s [/i]fault? The [i]victim [/i] should have paid more attention?
    While I hope you’re never the victim of a drunk driver, I hope even more that no one is your victim.

    I guarantee this redneck retard took his first pay check to the ford dealership and dropped $50k on a truck. There’s no difference.

    Absolutely, all that jewelry is a waste of money. But Jared Allen’s manicures waste a whole lot of time, and some money.

    On a stretch of I-94 between Eau Claire and Tomah, an accident caused by a drunk driver blocked both southbound lanes and stopped traffic. i was one of the first there, so I got out to see if I could help. I recognized the vehicle that initiated the incident….. I was doing 65 and it blew by me fast enough that I didn’t even get the first number of the license plate. The drunk behind the wheel slammed into the back of a jeep pulled off on the shoulder, where he was helping the owner of the truck in front of him. I helped lift one end of that jeep off the ground so that the guy could pull a 10-year-old girl in a pick jacket out from underneath it. She had yet to move or make a sound when the road was cleared and we were told to move along, although the former Army medic tending her was certain she was still alive and was calling in a medi-lift.

    I dare you to spout that BS after going through something like that. But maybe you would. In which case, I encourage you to drive 100 MPH while drunk. Please, do us all a favor, before you reproduce. In fact, I’ll even suggest the road. Try Mn-61 along the north shore of Lake Superior. Little traffic to get in your way, and lots of steep cliffs just off the edge of the road. Have fun.

    i realize most illiterate incompetent twits like you come to these sites and write your drivel just hoping for a response from people like me to make your pathetic life seem more interesting and important…but if there is even a miniscule chance that you believe that post…and our society is so horrifically doomed to have people like you breed…i honestly hope its not YOUR son or daughter that makes that “stupid decision to be driving on a Friday or Saturday night knowing there are people driving drunk” and gets T boned by someone who you claim isnt drunk after blowing a .20 and killing your child. Seriously…you are an embarrasment to ALL intelligent Viking fans (and there are alot of them that I enjoy the banter with on this site) and to the human race in general. If there is even the slightest chance that you believe what you wrote i honestly believe you should make the world a better place and put a bullet in your own face.

    We’ll see how financially solvent Jared Allen is five years after he retires. Lots of smug guys in his position have lost it all without ever buying an earring.

    Saying the gold is an investment?

    But what if they didnt PAY for the gold and diamonds they are wearing?

    As stated in article Dez is being sued by jewelry store for not paying for his stuff..

    I suspect the agents paid for a lot of that stuff and would add it to their 1st contract fee

    ======================================
    He may drink PBR, but it doesn’t make him a hipster. A hipster would wear tight jeans, wear a messenger bag over his shoulder, get indignant if he found out anyone else had ever heard of his favorite band, and wear vintage eyeglasses.

    Jared Allen is kind of trailer-parky, and would totally kick a hipster’s ass.
