Con

The Argument of this debate is that Professional Athletes get paid too much money. I am against this point since I believe that Professional Athletes deserve that much money.
Carthage

Pro

I'll start of with saying I agree with you, but I feel like having some fun. I accept the debate.

My argument is mainly this: Professional athletes should get harsher fines than they do now. Since money is a big motivator for them, harsher fines area good punishment for doing bad things.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro claims that Con didn't make any arguments, which is true. Pro, however, made no arguments either, only assertions. He asserted that athletes should be made to pay harsher fines without giving reasons for making life more difficult for athletes. What's worse, is that it's an implicit concession. It can be read that professional athletes do get paid too much, but this can be balanced out by higher fines. Con wasted Pro's time though, so I'm going to give Pro the benefit of the doubt. Conduct to Pro, because of Con's forfeiture. No sources on either side.
