The thing is if you were to drop college and go pro, who knows what could happen in the future? Atleast you know more about your future in school than out of it.

300K a year is alot of dough, my good friend plays for the Carolina Panthers and only makes around 100k-ish, yeah he's a rookie too.

How long is that contract?

Yeah, problem is it is to play in Germany. lol.

And it's only 1 year, with an option of 2 more depending.

Couldn't you go back to school later?

Also, wouldn't your contract include clauses to ditch a lot of the other sporting stuff you do? 

I could...but I doubt I would...I know myself too well. lol

And heck yeah. Id have to practically stop doing other sports.

JKing. You know what you've got to do. There are very good arguments for both options.

But seriously, $300,000? There wouldn't be much that I WOULDN'T do for that money, sad to say.

...so, I was uploading some photos to Facebook....and it noted the "faces" of my friends and was prompting me to "tag" them.

Half of the faces it squared off were saints, depicted in icons!

Ignore everyone but me.

Take the offer.

No online school.

No girlfriend.

Don't even worry about your future.

You have plenty of time for school if that is needed later. You are very young and ain't dropping out just to kick around the country in a van with your buds playing music.

This is big leagues boy.

Focus.

You have it or you wouldn't be here.

No school. No girl.

They don't exist for they next year or so.

Full on soccer.

If you do otherwise, you know it as well I as I do, you will regret it later.

The only reason you are posting it here besides wanting egotistical props, which are deserved, is because you already know what you are going to do and want others to support you. Even a buncha strangers on the internetz.

One time thing.

You did it.

Don't wuss out.

Do you put on hold a relationship that is probably going to go nowhere and a life you can easily go back to for something you are supremely gifted to do and enjoy for $300,000 / year with the chance to be among the greatest and up your gift?

The only answer is yes.

Nearly anyone on this board in his relative position would nearly kill to be in it, when they were his age.

I know. But I think that + seeing the world also adds more to it. My two cents. It sounds like a great experience, although I would personally have a hard time tearing myself away from school. But not everybody has to make that jump right away.

Many have screwed their dreams for a young romance. When your dreams are tiny, a relationship can be had, when you go big time and you are just starting to get into one, time to get out and have a singular goal.

That is not to say he can play the field so to speak . . .

But I guess that wouldn't be Christian.

I am just saying no American college relationship should be entering the equation here. This is serious stuff. This ain't college puppy love soccerz.

Unless she is gong along and in fully on board team Celtic Fan. And that is almost never the case. I've seen people lose less over as much.

Celtic represent OC.net.

BS. Someone gave you $300,000 for a year to possibly be at the world top level of doing what you love, you wouldn't have put school on hold for a year? For something where you might make your mark among the greatest where school is irrelevant for your life?

Nonsense.

But most of us don't get these chances, cause we don't have that degree of giftedness in things the world so values and also lack the focus to really craft those skills.

CF does so far.

Ain't many humans on the planet getting CF's chance. If you ain't been in that position or close to someone who has been, it is easy to write off for many reasons.

Go CF!

Considering celtic just got into a new relationship maybe it's easier for him to let that person go.

Me personally would I choose 300k for one year and give up a relationship that could outvalue that amount over time?

Fame, money, etc never meant anything to me.

I know plenty of American college relationships that have become great marriages, again it comes down to if celtic values the relationship enough to stay, I would assume not.

But if it was a longterm relationship with true marriage potential, would I put that aside for a 300k/one year gig? My answer would be no.

The flipside is that if the relationship is so great, it can survive the distance.

Yes, if Celtic Fan takes the contract, we will then next help him decide how to spend that moolah.

ATVs? Property in Norway? A new girlfriend? The world will be his oyster.

Is turning down a $300,000 a year pro soccer contract to stay in school and get my degree a dumb idea? Because my whole family thinks so...
One idea I've heard is that you should jump on the opportunity to play professionally while you still can, since the window for earning an income as a professional athlete is rather small and the field so uber competitive. Continue playing as a college athlete, and a serious injury may ruin your chances of ever going pro--such s**t does happen. You can always go back to school after you're body is broken down enough that you can't play anymore.

The most hated accent for me? Boston. Hilarious because that is where Mr. Ismi hails from. Luckily it's not too thick.

Birmingham "Brummie" accent.

1:45 When asked what came to mind when you think of Birmingham a passer by said "1 million people with a speech impediment" I laughed too much and then felt guilty.

4:05 is when you hear the real accent from people stopped in the street.

Ignore everyone but me.

Take the offer.

No online school.

No girlfriend.

Don't even worry about your future.

You have plenty of time for school if that is needed later. You are very young and ain't dropping out just to kick around the country in a van with your buds playing music.

This is big leagues boy.

Focus.

You have it or you wouldn't be here.

No school. No girl.

They don't exist for they next year or so.

Full on soccer.

If you do otherwise, you know it as well I as I do, you will regret it later.

The only reason you are posting it here besides wanting egotistical props, which are deserved, is because you already know what you are going to do and want others to support you. Even a buncha strangers on the internetz.

One time thing.

You did it.

Don't wuss out.

Actually, I have no idea what to do. I have a limited window to decide as well.  Embarrassed

Unless she is gong along and in fully on board team Celtic Fan. And that is almost never the case. I've seen people lose less over as much.

Celtic represent OC.net.  

She did tell me she'd wait for me, lol. That is part of my problem, but I actually have other issues too, like worrying I'll be cut after one year, or getting injured.  Undecided

Normally it would be none of my business, but you asked so...  I am with your family.  If you play soccer for five years at 300k a year, you will probably be better off than if you get a degree in most things where it would take decades to rake in that kind of dough.  At my current pay rate it will take me 45 years to get what you could in 5.  And if you save properly, there is nothing saying that you cannot go back to school later on and do so with no debts.

Who cares? What's a year in the grand scheme of things?

I have like four degrees and I'd gladly swap them for what you're being offered, haha.

Do it, bro.

CF and I are in negotiations over his negotiations.

I just, literally, spoke moments ago with someone who was in a similar but arguably more risky situation.

They followed my advice and things are on a roll.

More info to come on that story. Let's just say soon I will be adding a knight or two to my celeb impress list.
