While I agree with this, most of that money comes from us. We watch and enjoy the games, they get paid. The amounts of $$ are high, but so are the amounts of people watching

Not to antagonize but the average athlete if they make it to the professional level, enjoys a 4 year career. If a lawyer were to have to make all their money in the same time frame, they would need Hillary type money.

Well most of the players get atleast a 10 yr career, these 100 million dollar multi-year contracts do seem dispraportionate to the rest of society, we pay more money, cuz the ticket prices increase, because the salaries keep increasing, a viscious circle, not to mention the endorsments alot of these players get nationally and in their local markets, yes athletic, yes talented, ego maniacal for sure, alot of them are. I grew up with a cousin that played and won the cup with The Devils (NHL), once he got his first contract with Montreal he became the biggest dick ever, nobody in the family cares to see him, nor him us. He retired after 10 yrs, now asst. coach for the Thunderbirds, still a prick. We can't keep a doctor around for 300k a year, but we live and breathe for our local teams and players. And get emotional when we lose. I'm sure a sick child would prefer a cure than an autographed jersey and a visit.

Personally I think it's insane to pay anyone that much, but certain players do put asses in the seats. So in the end, you can only blame the fans. They are the ones paying ridiculous ticket prices, buying $10.00 hotdogs and paying insane amounts for sports on TV. Its a free market and fans are willing to overpay :/

Yup. I go to a Jets game ( if I can get a ticket) so easily $100+ a night aswell as ticket. It's insane.

Myself included, I don't want to antagonize, but if the system if so unfair, and the amount of money they receive is more than what they work towards, whats stopping yourself from doing it with the goal of curing cancer?

I'd love to work on a cure for cancer, but I was never a studious guy, aka not smart, work with my hands , but I do alot of fundraising work with my art when I can, and free of charge, cuz I was a sick kid growing up.

That must have been hard. It's really good that you do what you can. My little brother has brain tumors and is currently in remission, and my favorite uncle died 2 weeks ago. Cancer sucks man

This has always irritated me. I am not much of a sports fan though.
