You should feel bad, not because they are hurt, but they lose the ability to do their job. Would you not care if a surgeon loses his hands just because he makes more then you? Envy is a dangerous thing my friend

except a surgeon is useful in society

So do you not feel bad if a cop or a firefighter dies doing their job because that's part of the risk of their job (or is it just because athletes make more?)
#55 to #54 - jackii (09/28/2013) [-]
But their jobs are actually important.

They also have significantly shorter careers than other people meaning they get paid a lifetime worth of wages in only a few decades all of which is subject to inflation. They also must go through rigorous workout routines to stay competitive so that they can earn more and oftentimes this means turning to steroids just to be on par with other athletes that are taking steroids. All while playing a game that is most likely rigged to go on as long as possible and result in the more popular team winning to increase stadium, advertisement, and merchandise revenue. Not to mention they are put on the spotlight 24/7 to ungrateful fans who criticize them for every mistake they make but who will ultimately forget about them after they retire. After all of this pressure a lot of them turn to drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc. and end up losing all of their money and have to pathetically sign autographs for a living because they never learned how to do anything else.

That's kinda harsh. professional athletes actually work their asses off to get where they are. Fair enough they get paid ridiculous amounts of money but when they get injured that's the end of the dream for them. they can't do what they love any more, and that's really sad.

Being a successful Professional athlete is like winning the lottery. Except to get you lottery ticket you have to spend your whole life working harder than 98% of the people around you and being inhumanly skillful and athletic. Then when you finally get you ticket, the chances of actually making it through training camp as a rookie are very low. Then if you by some miracle of God you are lucky enough to earn a spot on the team less than 1% of professional athletes get the multi-million dollar contracts like Peyton or Tom Brady. The average career for a professional athlete is 1 year at the league minimum. So go **** yourself.

they practiced their whole life to be that good. getting injured means they lose all their hopes and dreams.something far beyond their salary

youre not getting the point, imagine you were really good at something and got really far in life for it. forget money. youd be depressed if it all had to end over an injury

Professional athletes sacrifice their body to entertain people. NFL players on average live 20 years less than a normal person. They have a very specific and specialized skill, that very few people can do. So yes, I do believe that they deserve to be paid as much as they do. You aren't paid by how useful your job is to society, you are paid by how many people can do your job. A garbageman is very useful to society, but it takes little to no skill or training to become one, so they don't get paid very much.

You don't feel bad when innocent people get horribly injured? What kind of demented twisted sadist are you? It doesn't matter how much money they make or how hazardous their profession is, they don't deserve that kind of pain.

I mean seriously, **** you. Every job has its unavoidable hazards. When a construction worker gets a finger cut open via a malfunctioning blade do you just shake it off as, "Oh well, he gets paid money to take those kind of risks so no one should feel bad for him" You are so close minded and ignorant that it makes me want to punch you in the face, but I never would because I legitimately do not want to see you get hurt.

And before anyone even says it. Yes I'm mad.

im portuguese and i hate cristiano ronaldo

why?
because he gets paid 1.400.000€ a month to play football every now and then for 45 - 90 minutes while i get 500€ a month for 8 - 9 hours of work
and theres also people that get paid even worse and work even more

if he gets hurt he can afford 1000 doctors to take care of him
if i get hurt im ****** for months

i dont care if hating him makes me a bad person
ronaldo is portugal's justin bieber for those that think we all love him

I feel bad because its empathy. Soldiers do a job where they know they might die, but that doesn't mean I'm apathetic to their cause. I'd really prefer it is no one had to feel pain, but people do and I'm empathetic towards them.

But people pay to see those particular athletes, it would be like paying to see a concert only to not have the musician perform and not getting a refund

Doctors get paid a lot because they face a chance at lawsuit every single day.

Does that mean you shouldn't feel bad when firemen get injured, because that's a huge risk? Not everyone is in it for the money. Everyone who plays pro lacrosse, for example, is in it because they love it. Wanna know how much the average NLL salary is? $14000. Teachers make a lot more than that. Yet people still do it because they love it. Not everyone trains their whole life to get a 30 million contract, which is very rare.

we could live without athletes
we couldn't really survive without first responders.

Actually, athletes are just now realizing that they could seriously **** up their bodies permanently doing what they do. For the past hundred years or so, they've pretty much been told that "That's not them, they won't get hurt, so go plow the **** out of that guy!". That's why the whole concussion lawsuit is such a big deal. They're trying to make it safer for players and help them get help with their injuries

I also don't really feel bad when my favorite team loses because I still know that they are getting paid more than I ever will even with a loss.

Well no, I don't feel bad for them financially, but if one injury is what stopped them from doing the best at something they love, I feel awful.

People need to calm the **** down when it comes to the way athletes are paid. Yes it's unfair and I agree with the fact that there are soldiers who risk their lives for this country but all athletes are paid by the billionaires who own the team. It's not like the government pays these athletes like they do for soldiers, police officers, fire fighters, and even garage men. They are an asset to the teams they play for and should have payment according to there skill level and value to the team just like any normal employee would be paid at a normal job.
