I feel as though a lot of people make the comment that professional athletes get overpaid. i dont agree with this and would like someone to convince me otherwise.

Ok to stat off this debate I would like to offer the following sources for my reasoning.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok according to this the average football professional player gets paid an average of 1.8 million a year. Taken into account the Superbowl winners and hall of fame players.
For what these athletes do they are payed much to high considering the ones that some years don't even do anything. I'm talking about the players that sit on the sideline and cheer fr theirs teammates. Now what do they do? They come to practice: ok that is like going to the gym everyday and getting paid over a million dollars for it. I would think that there is something wrong with that.
According to my second source the NFL has experienced a need for different programs to be cut because of a loss for money. A money problem that could be associated with the over paid NFL players.
Now it is always great to get paid tremendous amounts of money and spend to your heats desire. But what do these NFL people do after they get too old to play?

Ok my third source says something very interesting, not only do these players get paid tremendous amounts of money they can't get enough of it. A simple TV dispute and they are asking for 707 million dollars! Seems greedy doesn't it? Well not to them, they get paid so much anyway that money is no option to them and somehow they have to get enough to what? They buy more cars bigger houses. What does this do? It creates a huge amount of our money and economy in the hands of people who can't get enough of it.

Don't get me wrong some of the NFL players are very good men and use their money very well, but there are still the others who can't get enough

Back to you Con

I know this is restated the argument I gave, but I have nothing to say

I hope well on tfizzman in case he has any computer or other problems that are causing him to not post his argument.
