Why Do Athletes Get Paid So Much?

Not to mention the fact the time that an athlete consumes for their personal training before they will be professional in their field of sports is often unpaid.

An athlete is only paid too much once they are one of the players ion a league that have continues schedule of games until the league reach its championship games. This only means that they will have to abide with the strict rules of their coach and managers until the game is over. This is an extreme sacrifice for a certain individuals isn’t it?

    The only reason professional athletes & entertainers are paid rediculious amounts of money is because idiot fans pay for tickets, merchandise, and whatever companies can use for publicity, marketing, commercials, etc. Captialism at it’s finest


    40,000 idiots fans spend $100 for a ticket league makes 40 million a game
    Player makes $13 million a year
    Nike makes $100 million a year off of him.
