Are professional athletes paid too much?
Debate Rounds (3)
Round two is arguments
Round three is rebuttal
I am saying that pro athletes are paid too much
A NFL quarterback is paid an average is $1,970,982. (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com...) Put into perspective, an average lawyer is paid"$130,880 annually. (http://www.access2knowledge.org...). A doctor makes $180,850, annually. (http://www.access2knowledge.org...)"
That's sad, isn't it? Someone gets paid more to catch a ball, than someone who is saving a life. $1,790,132 more, to be exact."
Maybe this money goes to a good cause. That athlete probably has their own charity or foundation. But think again. Alex Rodriguez's foundation only gave 1% of it's donations to actual needs. (http://sports.yahoo.com...) Non-profits organizations have about 67% of donations go to charitable causes. (http://sports.yahoo.com...) 1% to 67%. How many gold plated toilets does one athlete need?
40 hours a what? week? Month? And doctors work 54 hours a week. (http://www.cbsnews.com...). Some football players don't even have full degrees (http://work.chron.com...), while a doctor has to have a (gasp of surprise) PHD."
"What else could they do with..."
Uh, I dunno, charity? Go into any major city and drive along a street downtown, and count how many people out there are holding cardboard pleas for help, housing, food and money.
Fr0st forfeited this round.

Reasons for voting decision: Con didnt present a strong enough or supported enough argument. Plus con did not sustain the BOP which was on con. Pro used rebuttals and debunked them well. Good debate. Plus con forfeited.
