  1. That’s horrible man I hope they kept most of their pictures at their other home.

    Having said that… you spent $1m on a house with 4 bedrooms. I life 40 miles north of you and spent $180k on a house with 4 bedrooms.

    And I’m supposed to feel sympathy for the lockout?

  2. Jokes aside…guys got kids…glad they are safe. You wouldn’t be telling cab jokes if the headline read antwon doom and family burned alive in family home.

  3. Looks like the NFL and Ownership are taking this fight against the players to the streets…

    Seriously though… glad he and his family are unharmed.

    Of course we wouldn’t. But everyone is safe so Game On!

  5. It’s a former homearama home sitting on an extremely nice golf course and it’s nearly 6000 square feet.

    A giant house doesn’t need to have 12 bedrooms. What’s the point of having more bedrooms than you need?

  6. LOL @ toe4 for trying to compare his $180k 2000 square foot house located in the Dayton area to Odom’s 6000 square foot custom built homearama home on a golf course in Mason.

    Absolutely hilarious.

  7. Yeah, to hell with the immaculate pool, the sauna, the 700 square foot closet for his wife, the 12′ ceilings throughout, the ornate woodwork, the whole house audio, the home automation, the lighting fixtures, the landscaping, the four car garage, the basement with a bar most restaurants would die for, the fact that the smallest bedroom is 400 sq. ft., the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom, the ornate ceilings, etc.

    A house isn’t worth paying a ton of money for unless it has 16 bedrooms to house your family of four.

    Good logic.

    This home in California would be $7mil.

    I am still trying to picture a 1.1 million dollar home with only 4 bedrooms…

  8. bengalsown,

    I hadn’t realized there were Bengals homers. How brave of you.

    My point is that he spent $1m on a home. Its a waste of money. Players want me to feel sympathy for them when moderately talented players have $1m to blow on a house.

    Oh and by the way… my 2000 square foot home in the Dayton area is still standing.

  9. Yeah, such a waste of money. How dare someone in America spend 13% of their annual salary on house. Such a waste!

    The average American spends 28% of their annual salary on housing, btw.

  10. Homer you are proving my point.

    $1m is the entire cost of the home and is only 13% of his income.

    American’s spend 28% of their salary on the annual cost of a home, not the entire cost of the home.

    He has $1m to spend on a home when a quarter of that is still a fantastic home. And yet the players want to pretend as if it isn’t millionaires v billionaires.

    He has so much money that he can spend a million dollars on one thing and I’m supposed to sympathize with the players for being locked out without health insurance.

    As if they can’t afford aflac.

  11. I screwed up my math, big time.

    His $30mil contract over 5 years averages out to $6mil per season.

    $500,000 per month.

    House payment is probably $7000 at the most.

    Sounds like the guys smart with his money to me.

    Hey toe4 you sound stupid, just let it go and move on


    Yeah, I think you are right. All this anger at the players and owners and nowhere to vent it has fogged my head and has me lashing out at dumb stuff.

    Sorry all.

  13. Not in the house at 2:40AM?? Wonder if arson investivators are trying to find a cause……..

    Not saying it happened this way, but it’s possible the cause of the fire IS the lockout…..

    1.1 mil will carry you a long way through the work stoppage……..

  14. I am so sick and tired of getting my posts pulled when there seems to be no rhyme or reason.

    My last post may have been a little snarky, but there was no profanity or mention of anyone by name.

    Maybe you could post an article here laying out what is and is not going to be censored.

    I know for a fact that I am not the only one struggling with this.
