Greetings from Scottsdale, Arizona, where I was delighted to be asked to speak to a group of financial advisors and CPAs at the annual Sports Financial Advisors Association. I return home today after a short trip out West, and hopefully have little traveling until my end-of-the-year vacation to Hawaii, where I will be enjoying a cruise, hopping around the various Hawaiian islands. I suppose the big sports news this week was Le’Veon Bell officially losing a full year of service and forfeiting a total of $14.5 million in the process. It is really interesting to have a conversation with current and former players surrounding Bell’s decision making.
