Footballs get paid way to much just to kick a ball about! There are people working their bums off when they are living the 'high life' from doing nor much! I know there is skill invloved, but come on, open your eyes!

My argument is one word: Capitalism. Sports teams make a ton of money. The players make the teams tons of money. So why shouldn't the players reap the benefits? Choose a big soccer team. They make hundreds of millions of dollars a year. The players make the team the money. So why shouldn't they be heavily paid?

It is the teams choice to decide how much players should make. Why should we have a say in their business? What you are advocating for is authoritarianism mixed with socialism. You want to force teams to pay their players less for no reason what so ever. Also, if your solution is implemented, the owners will make even more money. How is that fair?

You also need to prove why your idea is needed. Good luck!
