    sports men and women salaries

    i am trully amazed at the high salaries of sports men and women to just play games. comparing to those serious type of jobs that affects the economy, should they be having such high paying jobs or rather sports? and we end up wasting as couch potatoes watching them enjoying the game.

    Economy isn't the only thing that matters. I wish it was actually one of the least important matters.
    I don't mean I agree with those extreme salaries. They are also the byproduct of economic matters.

    Just don't forget that athletes usually have a bigger role than just doing sports, especially if they are international athletes.

    yea, but in reality, there are some jobs out there that pay more than your average athlete. and every dollar a man makes, a woman make 75 cents.

    One of the reasons is that sports stars can bring in more advertising revenue than politicians, scientists and engineers...

    it goes down to supply and demand. People love sports, so it is a big industry, however there are very few people in the world who can do what professionall athletes do so they are a rare, which is why they make a lot of freaking money.
