Pro Athletes DON'T get Paid Too Much
Professional Athletes don't get paid too much, that's what I personally think... Singletary also agrees that professional athletes don't get paid too much. First of all they are away from their families'. Would you like to be away from your family when you go play a season of sports. Just think you are the professional athlete and your family is at home watching you play, while they are sitting on the couch watching that season and cheering you on. Secondly the athletes get injured in the games that they play. Whether it be Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, etc. You can still get hurt, even if it is the simplest and easiest sport you can still get hurt. Besides if they get a serious injury one-third of their salary will be gone, enable to pay the expenses of that injury. Also they have taxes, and have to pay every month for their house. their goes another third of their money. Lastly is that the fans pay to attend the shows, buy jerseys, buy little toys for their children, and etc. Singletary said in his article " If the players play well then they will bring in more fans" and that is true. It is the fans choice whether or not they buy the clothing, accessories, and little toys. Therefore professional athletes DON'T get paid too much money.
