From a fascinating discussion on the NFL Wives Yahoo Group:

Poster One:

here's a question for you ladies...why do professional athletes give groupies money and gifts? i was talking this one girl and she gets so much shit from different men. i would think these
guys — with their fame and status — can get any woman for free!!!

And Poster Two's response:

U have to pay to play. There's has to be an incentive for the groupie to deal with the athlete and take all his BS, money is usually the incentive, but there are so many different types of groupies, there are those they do it for the sake of saying they screwd so and so and don't get a thing and there are those who make a living out of it....just depends.

And that should settle it.
