During that time, the team made money, now they traded him away and the attendance drastically dropped, and the team is unsuccessful. The second reason, and the more important reason, is that there are certain people who are the best in the world at what they do, and those people make a tremendous amount of money. The best software programmers in the world are inhumanly wealthy, the best doctors in the world are unquestionably millionaires, the best lawyers in the world make millions every year, the best actors, musicians, writers, and virtually everything else make outrageous amounts of money, so why should athletes be any different? If you've worked your whole life to succeed in something, while others have wavered over their goals, you probably deserve to reap the benefits of such dedication
Wouldn’t it be amazing to make millions of dollars by playing one game or tournament? Well famous athletes feel they do. Many people feel that professional athletes are extremely overpaid. People feel professional athletes are getting to much money in a society where incomes are traditionally based on the value of one's work. Average Americans work standard hours and get paid a dismal amount compared to an athlete.
Professional athletes are some of the most admired, most popular people on earth. They have been the center of entertainment for decades. However, so have their salaries. Over the years, it has become increasingly more evident that professional athletes seem to be playing less for the love of the game and more for the love of the pay check. Professional sports are no longer played on grass, dirt and hardwood floors but on calculators and cash registers.
Are athletes getting paid too much? One side says they deserve the money they receive for playing professional sports. The people who think other wise don't understand how the lifestyle of a professional athlete really is or who would get the money we spend if the athlete's didn't get it. They just see those huge salary numbers and think that it is unfair that the general working class doesn’t make that amount of money. Professional athletes are some of the most dedicated and hardest working people in world.
In today’s society professional sports and professional athletes make tremendous amounts of money due to us citizens. The money we pay to watch professional sports all goes to the teams, the money we spend on food when were at the games go to the teams. Since pro athletes make such a huge amount of money from our support cheering them on, shouldn’t pro teams and pro athletes pay subsidy taxes for social needs? I believe that professional sports and pro athletes should pay an amount of taxes for social needs. Professional athletes make millions of dollars every year and it isn’t fair for those out on the streets that don’t make money close to a pro athlete.
How are they going to pay for particular expenses by coming from a penniless family? Because of this you have athletes accepting illegal things such as money, cars and clothes. College athletes ever year bring in at least millions of dollars due to products and the games played. And the athletes that do can leave college and go pro they do because they are living in near poverty. College students should get paid because of all the income they bring in for their school while playing.
Of course the normal person would love to have thirty days of paid time off that rolls over if not used. It sounds like a very good career but the average person doesn’t see the grueling and intense deployments these young men/women have to endure. I have experienced for myself and I believe that there is little balance between there work and the enjoyment of recreation in their life. If anything these sailors are underpaid and over worked. The government needs to implement a plan where there is more time at home and less time out to sea without jeopardizing the United States sea power.
I would like to point out that even if a pro athlete is paid the league minimum for sitting on the bench for the 99.99% of the season, they are still making more money than the individuals people rely on day-in and day-out to make the world go round Professional: engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as a pastime Athlete: a person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise. 1) Training - the Athletes goes through vigorous training & we all would have to accept that It is hard. But let's look at the training a Lawyer & Doctor go through. A doctor first has to graduate from College which is 4 four years. Then after the 4 years they have to go to four years of medical school.
21/11/13 Should footballers be paid more than soldiers? Ikrah Batool Is it really fair that footballers get paid so many millions more than a soldier does in a single year? Thousands of soldiers put their lives at risk for the safety of your country, slaving day in day out with minimal rest, sleeping in the horrendous heat and fighting in the freezing cold in the night. Whereas footballers just train for ninety minutes a day and then go home to their nicely warmed and cooled pad and rest. And this is what footballers get paid hundreds of thousands of pounds a week for!
“Colleges and the NCAA generate more than $10.8 billion per year off of athletics” and yet, student athletes do not get paid at all for their hard work. They put in a great amount of time, effort, and work into being a student athlete. Being a college athlete is exceptionally laborious and can be both mentally and physically exhausting. There’s far more that goes into being a collegiate athlete than most individuals realize. Many people just see these athletes as the average student that in addition, gets to do what they love as an extracurricular.
