In tennis, in soccer, in hockey , or in other few sports, people reach so much money, just because they have talent, and all peoples know him. In my opinion is not fair, i don t hear about a science ,about peoples who work for humanity to reach so much money!! We all are guilty because Bechkam can buy a Mercedes every day, and in other countries people die because of starving? No dubt that they have some value, but who can tell me, if people don t accept to watch to sport, who will give this few people so much money?

Hello, my curious friend! I think the huge salaries athletes bring in are unconscionable. It's become too expensive for most people to attend a sporting event, and a lot of the reason is the huge salaries. My husband played professional baseball in the days before the salaries became so enormous, and athletes were paid about the same amounts as most other employees, and the best perk was free travel and hotels. Now we have a couple of relatives still in pro sports, and they even say their incomes are ridiculous!

It's totally unfair, especially since the majority of people these days are working so hard trying to make ends meet. Athletes earn a fortune for their endorsements of products, so they could still be rich if they were paid more reasonably for playing sports.

well yeah, some people do deserve a break. but we also can't help the fact that not all heroes are recognized as heroes. they can be your mother, your father, your teachers or anyone else without these people gaining those scenes like the ones you exampled. maybe we just have to accept that reality, no matter who you are or where you are from is really different from one another. i know i may sound stupid but we can't do anything about it if we squabble all day on this, do something.

i have always wondered to why sports people get so much money.i don't care for sports very much so they would not make any money from me.if people didn't watch the sport they wouldn't make the money they do.
