On Browning.

Dan has my favorite take on the Browning story here.

$100k sounds like a lot of money to owe in child support. But we're dealing with someone who should be worth multiple millions. Of course, I have no idea what he's currently worth...but according to BRef, Browning made $16,713,333 in his 12-year big league career.

So, his back child support amounts to 0.5% of his total earnings. That's before the considerable money he should have made with via investments over the years.

For comparison, let's say I make a $40k salary and work for 12 years. I'd make $480,000 total. 0.5% of that is $2,400.

I hesitate to get too judgemental without hearing Browning's side... but still, pay up, Tom.
