Professional Sport players should not get that much money.
Debate Rounds (3)
Look while the salaries of high end sport players may seem ridiculous the alternative is much much worse.
This is all about the free market. Sports players can be paid a lot (most are not paid that much) and that is because the market has created a demand for them.
And no not everyone can play sports professionals will spend often their entire lives fine tuning their talent. They put as much effort in as any other professional.
Have you ever watched Ratatouille?

Concerning both doctors and sports alike, it know they all needed to work hard to achieve their point of success, don't get me wrong! But is a Multi-million salary in fact needed to fulfill it?
After food, one of the things people spend money on is sports. Come to my house, you'll see a sports jersey, or a hat. Something! And it is the same thing you will see in most people's house around the world. All that money could be used on other things, that were more important!
I'm not saying I don't like sports, but sports athletes get too much money! When they break a bone, they need a doctor to fix them up! And it is most likely that if a doctor had not helped fix them, they could die from disease or permanent damage from the bone not fusing back together properly.
Yet athletes are making tons of money, and how much of well spent minutes that would be used for the greater good have been used? Not much. Not much at all.
Athletes do possess a skill that is more or less unique to them. The reason that they get paid so much is because there are none or very few people who possess the skills of athletes. In this circumstance the free market decides that wage and the wage that the free market has decided is the wage they currently have.

Reasons for voting decision: I will not be awarding points, as little effort was put in to the arguments, but Con's argument about supply and demand was a good one, explaining both how and why sportsmen are paid so much. Although Con's tangent onto Communism seemed a bit out of place, he did have better arguments.
