Being part of Floyd Mayweather's “Money Team” doesn't get you dental, medical benefits or a pension

Floyd Mayweather
I find it odd that certain fans really seem to have a vested interest in what their favorite boxers earn in the ring and almost feel as though they share in it somehow (Because of that, while they have never been managers or promoters, they certainly like to play them on the Worldwide Web). The Mayweather following seems to be the most guilty of this lunacy. Hate to break it to you guys but being part of the “Money Team” doesn't get you dental or medical benefits or a pension and it certainly doesn't get you part of the pay-per-view proceeds. There's no profit sharing here involved.

Being a member of the Mousekeeters may have more meaning to it (Yeah, I know, I know. I'm hatin').

I think Martin Wade (@brothaboxing) said it best on Twitter about this peculiar phenomenon: “Mayweather derangement syndrome lol. Since when did boxing fans act like hip hop fans?. Yo i bet Jigga got more $ than fiddy”

Preach, brotha, preach!

Anyhoooo, I'm off to count Prince Fielder’s money. We made out like bandits from Detroit. I can afford to get those retro Jordans everyone was squabbling over a few weeks ago.
