Are Sports Stars paid too much money?
In a world where countries are on the brink of financial collapse and ordinary citizens struggle to make ends meet. Can the wages of our top Sports Stars really be justified? Last year Forbes Sports Money listed that the top 50 earners, earnt an average of $28 Million for the financial year 2010-2011.
It's supply and demand. The demand for sports is there, so the money is there.
It's ridiculous how much footballers are paid per month - we're talking f**king billions. And I thought Charlie Sheen was bad, he's nothing compaed to the average Rooney or Beckham, raking in so much cash after each match.
This is a hub on professional athletes and their salaries. I did a lot of research to provide specific details on their incomes and averages. read more
It depends on what you think they are paid for. My verdict remains open.
Yes - waaaaay overrated! They're playing a GAME! Maybe hundreds of thousands but not millions. It's one of the reasons I will never pay for a ticket to a pro game of any sort.
No - when you think about what their owners are raking in.
Yes, definitely, expecially LeBron James.
Professional athletes are nothing but souped-up court jesters. Therefore, the only thing that any of them should be paid is a few shekels per appearance.
all entertainers are over paid. whether it is sports, music or movie stars. it's freaking absurd how much these people make.
I believe athletes get paid what they deserve for several reasons. You can't fault them for accepting money for the job they love. I actually just wrote more in depth about this here: http://okaygrace.hubpages.com/hub/Do-At … d-Too-Much
