So here is a really odd ball question. If you were given $100,000 in cash and the one and only stipulation to keep the cash was that you could no longer watch, browse the internet, or have anything to do with the Denver Broncos for the 20 years what would you do?

No loop-holes, if you accept the cash, you can't watch games, attend games, lurk or even contribute to the Omane, you are completely shut-off from the Broncos. What would you do?

When would we get the $100k? Seeing as how it's going to be worth about $10k in a few years :P

I wouldn't do it though. $5k a year to not watch them? Nah. The Broncos are a good therapy for a stressful week during footballs season. Win or loss it's nice to just kick back and forget everything else.

20 years total? If I could retroactively erase my memories of the Broncos for the last 10 years and include them, so I only had to miss out on the next 10, I'd almost consider it.

Asking for 100k then having the No option being that you wouldn't give em up for anything kind of counters the other option. I'd give up the Broncos for $50 million so I could go into film producing and have my life pretty much set forever.

Well, with the economy as tough as it is, we can't afford to give you 50 million, just 100 K to walk away for 20 yrs..take it or leave it

I need more money then that. I'm talking multi million or even a billion. Then I'll just buy a new team to support......Maybe the Raiders? hhhhmmmm

Edit: I would then scout the Broncos and tell them it's work related and I have to do it.

Considering I'm likely to lose my job any day, and I waste too much time stressing over this team I love so much, if you gave me the $100k on spot I'd take it. It would set me up as financially secure and give me a reason to end the stress and agony of watching my beloved Broncos. I've tried to improve upon this over the past few years, but outside of Draft Day it's not even fun anymore. I know that means that I care, but I have to be honest with you that I envy the people I see walking around who don't give two sh*ts about sports. They're in complete control of their lives whereas, sadly, my happiness is dictated by a football team for which I have no control. So if could use the excuse of the $100k to no longer watch the team anymore, I would take it and get into music or movies or something.

Unfortunately, life doesn't work this way and I'll spend the next 75 years of my life tortured and stressed as I think about the Broncos 95% of the time.

I'd do it in a heartbeat, I would start following baseball or another sport. I understand that some are well off financially, but that is more than a years salary for me. Anyone who wouldn't give up following a team for 20 years in exchange for a years salary is a zealot and should probably think about stepping back from the ledge a bit.

i wouldnt be able to do it....what really got me is the internet browsing...that means you pretty much can't read about football at all...

from April to September all I look forward to is the football season....it helps me take my mind off of the cesspool of misfortune and idiocy that my everyday life has become....in teh Broncos there is at least hope, whereas my life has pretty much been deemed "average", stamped, sealed and delivered to the kharmic powers of the universe and godly forces that be

at least on Sunday, after a Saturday night of not getting layed and crying myself to sleep on my twin bed, I have the Broncos...

without the Broncos I would probably resort to sniffing painters glue and doing somersaults in my basement on Sundays

I've spent the LAST 20 + years following the Broncos. Could I give it up for the next 20 years? That's a lot of money, but watching football is my stress reliever from September to February. That would ALMOST pay off my mortgage. I'd think I'd probably do it. It takes almost two of my four paychecks per month to make the mortgage payment. That's a lot of extra cash to do something else...

SoDak Bronco
03-06-2009, 09:41 AM
Money isn't everything. I couldn't do it, I get to much enjoyment from tuning in on Sundays to watch my Broncos. Plus, the NFL draft is kind of like a holiday in my house.

The way I see it though is I have ONE life... and I'm not going to refuse to watch my favorite sports team for what will probably be 25% of my entire life span, or 33% of what I have left.

Also while this is $100,000... it's also over 20 years which equates to $5,000 a year... not worth it to me. Just imagine doing this and not being allowed to know anything about the Super Bowl if the Broncos are in it... let alone if they win it. 20 years is a big chunk of your life, and the only real reason I could see to agree to this is if you're in a financial situation that's so bad you have no choice.

BroncosinDC
03-06-2009, 01:40 PM
Nope, and using my wonderful financial management strategy it would actually cost me at least $180,000 to turn down.

So I work Sunday nights in a bar, however during football season I can't work them because it never works out well for anyone involved. So by giving up that shift during football season (though sometimes its Monday), costs me about $250 per game. Over 16 weeks that's $4,000, or $80,000 over 20 years.

I've never done this math before and in hindsight basically paying $250 to watch a game on TV is a fairly stupid idea, even with free beer. However I am more than likely going to do it again this season. Now if you add in the cost of buying Jersey's, shirts, and Broncos shot glasses you can bumb it up even more each season. Then add into it the cost of games I go to, hotel's, $7 beers, tailgating supplies, etc...over 20 years I would probably spend at least an additional $20-$30 grand, (in todays prices).

So by accepting $100,000 I would essientally be accepting somewhere around $250,000. But I'm going to go ahead and say No. This is where Vegas math comes into play. Adding up the fun I have watching the Broncos, talking trash with other fans, standing on bar stools with friends screaming that Janikowski is a fat bastard, hugging random people and screaming with joy because they are also Broncos fans...I estimate the net worth of that fun over 20 years is about a million dollars. So using Vegas math logic, by not accepting the money in reality I stand to be up $750,000.

Also my dog is named Elway, and teaching him a new name seems like a pain in the ass, so I'm adding $10,000 to my vegas math answer, and not accepting the money.

Rock Chalk

I think you're underestimating how much colleges are going to cost by the time your kids are old enough to go.

No I am not.

My oldest is 7, that gives me roughly 13 years to gain interest on the initial 100K.

2 years of JuCo because why pay for basics at a university when you can get your degree from the University and get the cheap basics from a JuCo. I can afford the JuCo without touching the that college fund.

13 years of interest even at a moderate rate will yield quite a bit of extra income. On top of what I would throwing into the college fund myself. Im figuring, 300K total by the time my oldest is ready to go to the University of Kansas, which is moderately priced and offers a great education and she can sleep in line to get me tickets to the basketball games :) since I will be paying for her to go to school.

Add in another 5 years before the next one is ready and another year after that. I figure that 100K + what I add into the savings fund + interest collected is more than enough for my children's college. But it all starts with the 100K

Ahh, only if those people received 100K.

Short of enough money to secure my children's college education, i see no reason to stop watching the Broncos, good or bad.

But people talking about No or Hell no, under any circumstances, are selfish and thinking merely for themselves.

I imagine those that voted yes, are like me, and could use that money for more than 16 days of entertainment a year. Football is not the meaning of life. Its a game. Compared to being able to afford an education for my children, its a stupid game and I could easily walk away.

Those of us that aren't loaded with cash and dont have substantial savings and are concerned about not only their own future but the future of their family, would take the 100K in a heartbeat. Those that are single and think only for themselves or are not hurting financially (which, likely is very few people on this board), could say no. They have the benefit of not having other more important worries in life. Good for them. The rest of us live in the real world.

I think there is less than 5% of people, who if they were sitting in front of a suitcase at the bank, full of hundred dollar bills to the tune of $100,000 dollars, would have the strength to say no. I'd like to believe that I'm one of them, but if that suitcase was right there in front of me, the question to me wouldn't be about the Broncos. It would be about which was the bigger sacrifice: the one that my family by me passing on the offer, or the one to my psyche by having to give up something that I love.

And hell, it might be a different story in a different economy. We just lost some good people, and everybody's salaries just got slashed.

Also, I'd want that $100,000 in gold. :)

$100,000 tax free?

Very tempting.

I would probably pass that up right now....but I have my price.

$250,000 tax free and I would probably take the deal.

I love my Broncos....but $250,000 tax free would set my family up if saved/spent wisely. It would be nice to have that comfort zone financially.

Beautiful fall weekends would be spent outdoors hiking and fishing instead of spent watching football. That is my one problem with loving and watching as much football as I do....September and October are beautiful months outdoors and sometimes I wish I was not such a football junkie, as I am hooked to the tv with college and pro football.

As for the gold, I get where your coming from, but I think it's topped out. Theres not much farther the economy can fall, but theres a lot of room upwards.

Everyone would love to have the 100k, but like Alec said it's a matter of priorities. Right now I wouldn't give up my right to watch the Broncos, but I'm only 22. In the future... I'd have to think about it. I'd like to think that I would turn it down but having a family definitely changes things.

I don't think people voted yes to be viewed as good fans... it's hard to imagine life without the Broncos.

My view point on it is this. Although I could def. use the 100K, for myself personally, I would turn down the money. I honestly get way to much enjoyment out of watching the Broncos to put a monetary $ on it. I probably do have a price, but 100K isn't it, and having a young son, I would want to introduce him to the love of Bronco football. (my wife would say, take the money you idiot and introduce him to something else!) haha

But you can't take the money with you when you go :)

The only way I'd even consider it would be if I were at least allowed to watch em during prime time/playoff/SB games. I think 100g is too low as it is, but what makes it worse would be the inability to watch certain MNF, playoff games or even the SB if Denver got in.

That being said...priorities are priorities. If my kids' college and quality of life wer guaranteed, I'd give up all sports forever.

I disagree.

$100K either doesn't go very far for many folks here, particularly those who live in parts of New England or CA; or it's less than some of us make in a year, so it wouldn't be a HUGE deal to turn down. There is also the single, stable financially, no kids crowd that has already been touched upon.

$100K simply isn't "sell your soul" type money for most folks.

$1 million on the other hand......I'm certain more would cave.

Absolutely I'd give up the Broncs for 100k cash. I was ready to see them move when they upped the sales tax to pay for the new stadium. That's probably cost me 10k by now already and I haven't attended a single game at Invesco.

You internets Bronco fans can kiss my ass, you haven't paid a nickle for Invesco, piss off. I'm sorry to have to say this, but you internets Bronco fans are the only people that wanted Shanahan to stick around, and the only people that are in love with Jay Cutler. Most people in Broncoland were tired of Shanahan and are tired of Cutler also.

Ok how many would sell their wife or girlfriend for 100k? One night.

If we are going to sell our beliefs and things we love in life why stop at the Broncos?

100,000/20 = 5000 a year thats weak. No way do I do it. No thanks the Broncos are my hobby I can find other ways to fund my kids college and what not. That extra 5,000 per year isn't worth it.

PS...the thread title says could I? Yeah, I could but would I no!
For 5 grand a year...I'd give up DTV/Sunday ticket, eating out, lattes, etc. I could come up with the five grand easy...but I wouldn't give up one thing that I look forward to all week...and miss during the Spring/Summer.

For the folks that are having trouble with finance...

This isn't an annuity, this is a one time upfront payment of 100,000

Invested conservatively to average 5% ROR over 20 years your $100,000 would be about $265,000 at the end of your exile.

Find a way to squeeze 7.5% out of it and your 100K turns out to be more than 400K

I'd do it in a heartbeat, I would start following baseball or another sport. I understand that some are well off financially, but that is more than a years salary for me. Anyone who wouldn't give up following a team for 20 years in exchange for a years salary is a zealot and should probably think about stepping back from the ledge a bit.

Its almost 2 years salary for me. Before tax! and I'm 27.

I'd take the money. And watch the soccer :peace:

I'm a Broncos fan at heart and soul, and many of us are...

It depends on how important the Broncos are to you, and how you see 100k.

Invest 100,000 conservatively at 5%, assuming there are no steep recessions like now...

broncofan7
03-07-2009, 05:06 PM
I disagree.

$100K either doesn't go very far for many folks here, particularly those who live in parts of New England or CA; or it's less than some of us make in a year, so it wouldn't be a HUGE deal to turn down. There is also the single, stable financially, no kids crowd that has already been touched upon.

$100K simply isn't "sell your soul" type money for most folks.

$1 million on the other hand......I'm certain more would cave.

EXACTLY. And even then I would feel sick every football season that I could not watch my orange & Blue. I can honestly say that I would walk away from that suitcase of 100K with no regrets.

I don't think it would be easy either way. But I have a hard time believing that even half of the people who are scoffing could sit 3 feet away from an open briefcase full of hundred dollar bills just their for the taking, and walk away. It's easy to have bravado on the Internet. But if that money was right there, right in front of you - I doubt there'd be even half as many who could tough that decision out.

Exactly--while some of us at 18-19 were in college or joined military with a plan of where we wanted to be when we turned 30, others were out getting drunk and/or high, making babies and in general 'farting around'.
-Then they wonder why they don't have the 4000 sq foot home or can't afford the M3.
-Then they are willing to SELL OUT their favorite football team for a MEASLY $100K--and it truly is MEASLY when compared with the loss that would occur for ANY TRUE FAN if they had to give up the Broncos for 20 years.
