Financial blunders aren't limited to working stiffs. Even top-dollar athletes fall victim, says the May-June issue of Real People magazine.Naivete, trust in managers and the desire to make a quick buck have landed many pro athletes in financial hot water. For example:* Tony Dorsett, a former running back for the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos, lost $525,000 on non-performing oil-stock options.* Basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the Los Angeles Lakers said he lost $9 million on bad real estate projects in Southern California.

In the minds of football coaches, there are a couple of factors to determine whether a veteran running back has lost it.First, you look at the legs. If he has lost half a step, his instincts can compensate for that loss. If he has lost a full step, you wonder.Next, you look at his heart. Is it still ticking? No, is it still pounding? Does he still want it badly enough?People have watched Eric Dickerson the past couple of years with the Indianapolis Colts and wondered about his legs and his heart.

Remember "The Longest Yard" (1974)? It starred Burt Reynolds in one of his best efforts, as a convict who quarterbacks an inmate team against a squad of prison guards.The plot of "Necessary Roughness," now shooting in Texas, sounds suspiciously similar.There were familiar gridiron faces in "The Longest Yard," and there will be more in "Necessary Roughness." Recruited for the project have been Roger Craig, Earl Campbell, Tony Dorsett, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Dick Butkus, Jim Kelly, Jerry Rice and Ben Davidson.
