Topic: Overpaid?

Are professional athletes overpaid? This is an easy question, no politics anything like that, just do you think that pro athletes deserve to make millions of dollars?

At least hockeyplayers are.

We Finns like our hockey and our hockeyplayers but the current state of the NHL is appalling. It isn't right that over 70 cents of every dollar in the business is used in salaries, because the first thing you notice this in is the ticketprices.

I still doubt that even if the NHL-lockout ends, ticketprices would actually be lowered.

well if you think about it, if they're getting paid millions, it's more expensive for people to try and buy a game off now. offering an athlete $100,000 to lose a game would be like chump change compaired to the $28mil they're making that year.

but in short, yes they are overpaid.

I think they are very overpaid... You can earn millions to "play" with a ball or puck but if you are a CEO for a major company people get angry if you earn to much....

I don't understad why..
