“I can’t [retire] because of contracts that have been signed that will not let me walk away. If I had no contracts signed I’d be ready to give up the sport now. I’ll be 70 years old next year and there are still things I want to do with my life. I can’t walk away because of contracts I’ve signed until 2016. I do find it depressing at times.”
~ Philbro Liggett. It’s crap for him to be tied into the sport even though he wants to retire, but he should have probably checked his dates.
