Do you think that major athletes get paid too much, or are what they are paid worth the organization? I personally think that athletes get way over paid. The money that athletes get could go to teachers or doctors. Also, all the athletes do is play a game. While teachers teach you how to write, major league athletes teach young children that if you don't do something useful in life you can be a major league athlete. Also, they encourage kids to drop out of school. This is why I think that major league athletes get paid too much.
