With so much talk about how the lockout affects the NFL owners, players and fans, there’s a rather large group who could be losing out in a big way if the lockout continues. As Bloomberg News, via the San Francisco Chronicle, points out, NFL and NBA players are lining up to try to lower the alimony and child support that they pay to their ex-wives and former partners.

One attorney, Howard Rudolph, told the news service that he’s working on modification requests for NFL players, saying that if an industry is in trouble, like the NFL, the workers can’t meet their obligations and must modify their payments.

And when I think of an NFL player who owes a great deal in child support, my mind automatically springs to Jets CB Antonio Cromartie, who has nine children by eight women and who needed an advance on his salary last year in order to meet his court-ordered obligations.

"The money I get from him is definitely important," said Tina Julian, whose 2-year-old is Cromartie’s biological son. "Something would have to change."

One player who can make his payments, the news service reports, is Raiders RB Darren McFadden, who has three children by three women. McFadden in 2008 signed a six-year, $60 million deal with $26 million guaranteed. I also imagine McFadden could name all of his children as well, as opposed to you know who ...

What needs to happen is the courts need to garnish his wages/retirement and make sure that "we" do not have to pay for these children. Enough already with deadbeat dads especially those that just knock up anything that walks around. He had the money to take care of HIS responsibilities and once he is retired the public will pay for his misgivings. I say NO, the courts should step in and take his retirement and divide it up. Let him use that FSU education and get that job after the NFL and support himself as well as the baby mommas he has running around. Ahh but we know that will not happen for why should someone have to take personal responsibility for their actions ... welcome to Welfare USA.

"who has nine children by eight women and who needed an advance on his salary last year in order to meet his court-ordered obligations."  He needed an advance last year to pay - he's broke and he's still playing.  Within one year of his retierment all of his kids will be on welfare.  Notice I did say his 9 kids, most likly this guy aleady has another one on the way.
