Yes they deserve all that money. Some people don't know what its like to be a athlete they give up so much in there life.

Con

They have way too good of a life why others have nothing. They deserve money but not as much as they are getting

Did you know that the players that earn that money donate to charity's? I think they are also taxed more.

Not gonna vote on this one.

+1 tmar19652's argument. You think the players earn tons of money? Think about how much the owners of the team are getting...

The athletes dont deserve a ludicrous money, but they earn their teams or clubs so much money that they do deserve a share of what they bring in, whatever that may be.
