I do not agree bacause if you thank about it there are people who fight for there lives and they do even get as close to as much as athlets like police they mite get payed Aalot but if you conpare they are not even close and even if you look at the milutary they also might get payed alot.

Athlete's bring in so much money over national television that they've clearly earned the money they are being paid. They deserve just as much money as an actor or actress. They work their whole lives to become an athlete, they put in so much time and work into this, it's not like you work your whole life to become a banker or someone who works at a gas station. This is real, they deserve every penny they make. Its easy to say that they don't deserve so much money but it goes far beyond that. The teams play all season to win games and produce revenue. They only make so much money because the team does. A doctor has no feasible way of making 15+ million a year or some wild number, because tens of thousands of people don't have his jersey, or season tickets to watch him operate on people. It really is just business as to why athletes make so much money.
