During his playing career, Garvey was widely admired for his gentlemanly qualities on and off the field. Shortly after his retirement, however, his image was tarnished when he publicly admitted fathering two children - out of wedlock -by two women. [1] More recently, Garvey has been accused of failing to pay a number of personal and professional debts, including child support. [2]
