Do you think Professional Athletes make too much money?

Most of us aren't blessed with the athletic abilities professionals or some their work ethics for being the top .1% of what they do they make the money they desire

Way too much but that's capitalism I guess. Not my business. I just wish some other non entertainment vocations were valued more highly. (Yeah I'm a Catholic school teacher lol.)

We don't agree much, but kudos to you for that. Private school teachers are some of the most dedicated, in my experienc

They make as much as they can, same as everyone else. They are paid too much.

Patrons of sport dictate how much the individuals make. So it's just right. If those who have an issue with it stopped supporting the teams, then the prices of tickets, merchandise and contract amounts would most likely be lowered as a result.

You're on the right track, but you haven't hit the bullseye. I think pro athletes are paid a ridiculous amount of money. I don't attend games, watch them on TV, or buy their merchandise. And yet, they continue to make exorbitant sums.

You may not, but millions upon millions do.

I agree. But you suggested that if those who disagree with their salaries stopped supporting them, that their salaries may decline. I am suggesting that many (most?) who believe their salaries are too high are the ones already not supporting them.

Ergo, we have made no difference.
