One comment on “Joseph Cordell on child support, NFL player Antonio Cromartie

    Do you honestly believe $3,500.00 a month is a “windfall for the mother”?

    While I think many women take advantage of the salary-based calculations, I think the true victims here are the children, especially when their “father” has numerous other kids in different states with multiple women, a wife, and twins on the way.

    I’m sure these poor kids would prefer having a loving father in their lives. As far as this “man” goes, well…maybe he should have learned his lesson after the first 3 or 4 times. How sad.
