Are athletes paid too much
Debate Rounds (5)
But I am a bit confused towards Pro's opening statement.
As Con I am arguing that athletes are not paid too much.
I await Pro's arguments.
D-Dog forfeited this round.
Since Pro failed to present any of his arguments, I will move on to mine.
The time, effort and money spent by athletes is stupendous. Professional athletes train for decades, resisting temptations and sacrificing time and money that could have been spent on something more enjoyable.
2. They deserve it
Professional athletes are best players of a certain sports. As the fittest humans to play the sport, they should be awarded. Even nature herself awards the strongest and the fittest species.
I await Pro's rebuttals and arguments and hope that Pro will show some effort into this debate he has created.
I will first rebut the assertion made by Pro.
1. "Fire fighter save lives and save peoples live all you do is thrown a ball through a hoop"
Fire fighters do save lives. However, they do not put in thousands of dollars and spend the majority of their childhood training to be fire fighters like athletes do. Fire fighters only occasionally have to jump into the burning fire while athletes have to play, often dangerous and exhausting sport nearly every day.
Seeing that Pro has not rebutted any of my arguments, I will now proceed to presenting my arguments.
Professional athletes are in risk nearly every day. With the size and talent of contemporary athletes and the extremely rapid pace of game, athletes risk losing their careers every time they play. Despite the years of effort and contribution into their careers, some athletes have their careers ended in an injury. Because of the lack of education, it is difficult for these athletes to find new jobs.
I await Pro's arguments and rebuttals.
D-Dog forfeited this round.
1. "A teacher needs to work 27 yrs and a little more to make a 1/4 of the athletes make"
It is evident that Pro has not read my argument from Round 3. Teachers are not in risk of having their careers cut off everyday. Teachers do not have to work 27 years in order to become a teacher. But athletes need to start training at a very early age. Some of the very best athletes are said to have started playing their sports about the same time as they started to walk.
2. "When athlete die kids that decided America's future aren't giving that large amount of money"
I have no idea what Pro's trying to say here...
3. " Anybody can put a ball through a whole but can Kobe or Lebron save a guy's life with surgery but a surgeon can put a ball through"
Horrendous grammar. Anyway, not everyone can put a ball through at the high level as professional athletes do. Also, anyone can technically hold a knife and perform a 'surgery.' Some of the athletes have given hopes for young children. Some athletes actually travel across the country to grant a wish of a dying child. Surgeons may be able to perform some intricate surgery, but they rarely give hope to children as athletes do.
I have defended every points I have made and presented numerous points for Pro to rebut. However, Pro failed to provide a strong refutation nor arguments to substantiate his position.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeiture warrants a loss of conduct. Clear win on arguments. Pro made no rebuttals whatsoever and continued his "ALL YA DO IS THROW A BALL" argument vs nature argument. Obviously, sewook's point of nature is much superior than Pro's contention. Rebuttals were made, hence points to Con.
