as far as Sport salaries go...
As far as Sport Salaries go, I feel safe saying that professional athletes are paid too much. First of all, these people are making millions of dollars just to play a game. While I do understand that they may get injured, come on? Millions of dollars? That is just insane! ANYONE can become a professional athlete, if they set their minds to the training. So why are these people getting paid so much? Next, I hear on the news about some sports people getting upset because they are getting paid 'too little'. As if a few million dollars aren't enough, these athletes have the nerve to ask for more! Most people who work today are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle on less then half of what these athletes make! I say that the Athletes are selfish, and defiant of their own normality. Last, I would like to mention that we are encouraging it! We pay a lot of money, just to go sit in a /uncomfortable/ chair and watch some people throw a ball around? By paying what you do to get the TV channels, go to the games, and even to get a athletes autograph we are encouraging their socalled 'fame' by paying so attention to them! I say that if we turned our back on sports, these people would get a little dose of reality- that they aren't any better then any of us!
