Your salary is NOT based on the utility of your job.   
When will people understand that ?

I don't think players that fat or that white would be professional even in this universe.

Ever heard the phrase, "Those who can't do, teach"?

Why should we pay them more than athletes who have the talent and dedication to perform on that level? I agree teachers are under payed, but not by that large of a margin.
User avatar #31 to #29 - mjjrussell **User deleted account** (09/14/2013) [-]
Teachers are under payed and athletes are over payed.

Because teachers do intense workouts and change their entire lifestyles to stay in the best physical shape possible. Athletes generally work just as hard as doctors or lawyers, just in a different way.

That's not really the point. It's more like teachers go to school, and teach the younger generations the things they need to know. Think kids are dumb now? Take schoolteachers out of the mix. Any sports player....all they do it kicks balls for our entertainment. Take them out, and all we have to do is find something else on tv.

Also, prof. athletes getting paid more than others like cops, firefighters and soldiers is complete and utter ******** .

Except if athletes/ actors/ etc got paid a poor salary they would go get another job. They are paid highly because without the high pay no-one would want to do it, and if no-one wants to do it then people that sit at home watching tv, will have nothing to pass the time watching.

Its not like a scientist, where the majority are doing it for the enjoyment of discovering new things, getting to work with high tech equipment, travel around the world etc.

The only way this logic doesn't work is when it comes to armed forces. They get paid a medium wage to go get shot at for a few months. You could arguably say they're doing it for their countries freedom as the reward. But its not their country they're fighting for anymore, its one chosen at random in the middle east.

No one would want to do it? They get to play a game they love for a living. I'm pretty sure there are recreational leagues for a reason, people enjoy playing recreational sports. People however don't enjoy working at McDonald's but that doesn't stop them from getting 7.25$ an hour. Don't get me wrong I know it's that way for a reason but doesn't mean its not still a little ****** up.

of course he not making money at basketball hes white
User avatar #144 - osimonmagus (09/14/2013) [-]
The only reason professional sports players get so much money is because people are willing to pay the ticket price, pay the price for the merchandise, and recognize what they advertise. People like entertainment. Simple as that.

They'd probably be better basketball players if they didn't have 58 inch wastes and chicken legs.

Teachers around here get paid 60k a year
and they're thinking of going on strike for a pay raise

Well anyone can become a teacher if you go to school for it. Not everyone has the natural born talent to be a professional athlete.

Too all those people saying 'Ugh, not how economy works'. One thing. Joke
