It's reported that Welker won a little over $57,000.00. Good for him, right? Even more cool that he likes to share, right? Wrong! Churchill Downs wants a portion of that money back, stating that they overpaid the winnings by nearly $15,000.00. What is a poor superstar Wide Receiver to do in a situation like this?
My thought is that he keeps the money. If they're dumb enough to overpay, then they have to live with the consequences. Besides, losing $15K isn't going to break the bank of Churchill Downs.
What do you think MHRers?
Update: Churchill Downs now says that Welker can keep the money. Their mistake, all is forgiven . . . but they really hope he comes back to gamble away that money in the future.
