Must remember that the owners have tons of employees and expenses related to stadiums and other things, so it isn't an apples to apples comparison. But yeah, you'd think owners would be able to donate more.

So did you donate the $25.00 or donate anything like Allen or do you just throw shade for the purpose of throwing it? You have zero idea what donations Allen makes in WNY including his work for O'shei Childrens Hospital and other charitable organizations. He is also on his rookie contract. Making that judgement is interesting.

Did you donate anything? 

 

I think it is wonderful they are all contributing.  I’m not going to criticize anyone for the amount.   They aren’t required to do anything.

The Houston Texans donated 100k. I don’t know why good deeds need to be judged. Just let them be good deeds.

No, no it isn’t.

 

I promise that $25k goes further than $25.

I think all Bills Fans and Fans of WNY should be very thankful for the Pegulas. Thank you Terry and Kim for your support and generous donation.

The latter seems to contract the former.

I wont ever knock Josh's donation. He's still on a rookie contract, and who knows, may have to make that money last the rest of his life.

 

But yeah, Brees does embarrass the Pegulas. We should expect more from our Billionaires. Those numbers would make more sense if they were reversed ($5M from Pegs, and $1M from Brees). I like that it says "at least" $1.2M, so maybe it will go up if/when needed.

He's on a first-round rookie deal....got a $13M signing bonus in 2018, paid $1.4M last year.

 

That said, I'm not judging...I don't know how he invested or tied up his money, how much he might have loaned or put into his folks farm, etc etc.

We all want to see pro athletes preserve their big bucks and make generational wealth from it, but that means you invest it well, you don't leave it in your bank account where it's easy to draw out.

 

People can have high net worth but low liquidity

Totally lame man. The kid is on a rookie deal and it’s pretty cool that he’s donating anything at all.

Fair question and good point. Pretty much every owner/ownership group should be putting up $5M in local relief. Except maybe Green Bay.

 

Keep in mind, this is basically a PR move for the Pegulas after all the bad PR from the story you posted yourself.

He's also early in his career so he has a lot more to risk than Drew Brees (not to take away from his very generous donation at all), who has earned over $200 million over his career, not to mention his businesses, investments, endorsements, etc. Allen could take a catastrophic injury and never play again and never get another contract.

 

I, personally, have not donated anything yet. So I am certainly not one to judge a player or owner for the amounts they donate.

Sorry.  I would expect more from the Pegulas.  Is it nice to donate 1.5 million.  Of course. 

We donate about 1% of our income to the poor each year. 

I dont have 5 Billion.  And I get they dont make that a year. 

1% is 50 million.  How many billions do you need.  This is unprecedented. 

 

 

Preeeeeeetty douchey, imo.

 

Pretty douchey.

Actually it’s more like 12.5k because he can write it off on his taxes.  Yes, it’s great that everyone is donating (any amount) but it is a very small amount relative to his 5M+ salary
