How is this possible? Seriously, how the hell does a man who has made $50 million during his playing career go bankrupt?

Not only is Kane reportedly bankrupt, but his liabilities are through the roof. How do you rack up liabilities worth $26.8 million?

Whenever I hear about athletes losing money, it always blows my mind. Maybe it shouldn’t, but I’m always shocked.

I don’t make millions of dollars annually, and yet, I’ve never found myself in financial distress. How can someone making much more than me manage to seemingly loss most or all of it?

Better luck in the future, Kane! It sounds like he’s going to need it.
