  • Yes they are paid too much

    The people who risk their lives everyday for us are not paid enough, but its not just the people who risk their lives its the people who educate us and help us grow up and mature so we will ready for when we grow up. So my point is yes they are paid to much

  • NFL Players are payed too much

    NFL players make nearly $1 million a year while people like doctors hardly make half as much. The football players are doing it for entertainment while doctors are saving lives. The NFL players may get hurt and have only their gamely salary to live of, but anything like that could happen to anyone. The people who save our lives like the U.S. Army aren't getting paid nearly as much as people who do it for fun. I think the NFL should cut down the $1 million a year salary to about 300 thousand and give the rest of the $ to people who matter and make a difference like doctors.

  • It's just a game

    I was just reading an article indicating the average NFL player makes just under $1 million a year, and yet they were claiming that was too low. Let me ask you this: what are they doing that demands this kind of salary? The NFL itself averages $9 billion a year. I cannot see why they don't pay its players $100k a year and pay for medical expenses and retirement. Even that would be a sweet deal for players. My reasoning stems from this fact: the people who actually work hard to benefit society make far less than someone who plays a game for our amusement. Civil engineers who build and maintain our roads will make $100k after 20 years of service. Most start off at $50-60k a year after 4 years of college. Doctors who work tirelessly to save our lives and improve the quality of our lives may make $300-400k a year, but when you factor in how much 8 years of medical school costed along with the long, stressful hours associated with the profession, it isn't as lucrative as it seems at first. Our teachers make $45k a year, yet they work very hard to prepare all of us for the future.

    That being said, we still pay people close to $1 million a year just to play a game of football. This does not include the endorsements and bonuses players can also receive during their careers. I understand there is a risk of injury or permanent trauma, but I can't see why the NFL can't foot the bill, considering they are pulling in billions of dollars off these players.

    Quite simply, society needs to step back and get our priorities straight.

  • I think so

    I think most famous people or people in big time stuff make way to much compared to how much work they do vs. how much work the average American has to put in to even come close to that kind of money. All we are doing is over-glorifying the players.

  • They are lucky.

    Obviously, anyone who joins a pro-football team loves to play the game. Even the least paid players would rather be out on that field in the worst weather conditions than working a 9-5. It doesn't matter how banged up and tired they are, they want to be out on that field more than any place on earth. Sure, there is a lot of physical risk in the game but they also have some of the best medial treatment available. The risk of injury is also lessened by, not just the equipment but the rules of the game. Yes, there is some risk of a career ending injury but we all face factors every day that could mean the end of our own jobs.
    Some say that the higher pay is because of the physical risk, that they may no be able to do a normal job afterwards, but if that is the case, why would they be allowed to sue the NFL because of these injuries?

    Did they not see the risk of severe head injury? If not then they were not right in the head before playing.
    In the old days, players got very little for playing. It was just something they did on weekends to get extra money. In fact, many teams started as company sponsored teams such as the Packers came from the Indian Packing Company and the Bears started out as The Decatur Staleys from the Staley food starch company.
    Besides their regular salaries, players also get a signing bonus, and other income such as book deals, guest appearances, and such.
    In the end, why are we paying them so much for a job they, or many other people, would love to do for a whole lot less.

  • I can not agree nor disagree

    I am on the fence about this. I feel that while some players are surely overpaid, I believe the average salary for players is acceptable. Not all players receive endorsements in addition to their salary so their pay is all they get. Many get hurt in the first game and are out for several games or even the entire season or sometimes even have a career ending injury, so their guaranteed pay is all they have to fall back on. The way their contracts are structured are so that they make so much up front per year then so much per game that they actually play. So if they get injured early in the season and are out several games, they don't actually get paid all of that money. They also risk getting dropped from the team in coming years if they miss too many games which jeopardizes their future. So, do I believe some players are overpaid when they are already receiving commercial/ad endorsements in addition? Absolutely! But I also feel that with the high risk of injuries they have, the players average salary is acceptable.

  • Too much money is being wasted!

    You guys say that they are the best in the world an they deserve millions of dollars? No, there a lot of other jobs that deserve the pay they get but I guess we don't throw our body around for a football so we cant get the wealth. In todays world there are several high school players better then some NFL players; making it all American or D1 but damn i've never seen them get paid.

  • They are not worth the monery thay are paid

    It is a joke how much these apes make. It was meant to be for fun. Most of the players cannot even speak or write proper english. Sports are getting way out of hand and people should boycott Games!
    Of course that will never happen because the worlds values are so messed up.

  • NFL Players Are Compensated for the Risk

    NFL players are well paid, and they should be. They're the best in the world at what they do, and they put their bodies at constant risk to entertain fans. The toll that professional football takes, physically and mentally, lasts for the rest of their lives, manifesting itself in conditions such as degenerative joint disease, chronic arthritis, and various forms of depression. The league is extremely profitable, and the players deserve to share in that wealth.

  • Stop Paying Then

    Several of the posts seem very socialist: let's take the money they make and give it to the poor, or to doctors, or first responders or maybe soldiers. NFL players deserve the money they make because we are willing to keep paying it. As soon as we stop paying for tickets and swag, and stop watching the ads that run during game time, they will deserve less. Until then. Go Broncos.

  • Look at the Grand Scheme

    NFL players are paid an extremely huge amount of money, but I think that people really lose sight of the big picture. There are roughly 1700 players that get to showcase themselves on Sundays. This is a tiny, tiny group of people in this country as opposed to say 1.1 million law enforcement officers. With that being said these 1700 people have an enormous amount of talent unlike anything you will see. They are freaks of nature that use their talents in positive ways.
    For example not just communities, but cities and even states rally behind sports teams. When a team wins a Super Bowl there are parades and celebrations that create a sense of community and rapport that has a HUGE impact on the people. Also consider the impact they have on individuals like a kid who aspires to be a great athlete like say Peyton Manning. This kid will not be more active and live a healthier lifestyle because of this athlete he looks up to.
    NFL players are paid A LOT of money, and personally I wouldn't mind to see some of that money shifted to more people like police officers IN A PERFECT WORLD. But these are only 1700 people being paid these huge amounts by ticket sales, advertisements and other contributions to their respective organizations. These players overall have a great impact on our society, and with them being so few in number I do not think they make too much money.

  • NFL football players do not get paid to much.

    NFL Players do not get paid to much for many different reasons. For example NFL football players use their money for food, shelter, clothing and even to support their families. ( anyway NFL players do need to still be able to support their families and even themselves. Clearly, NFL football players do not get paid to much because they use their money for good usage and most do not use it for stupid reasons like to buy a new xbox 1 connect and a call of duty gamer system. But still some just blow off their money like it is whatever. But most definitely use it for good causes.

  • No they are the Best Football Players in the world!!

    Players that get paid the most should be paid that much. There is a reason why they are in the NFL. And that is too win a Super Bowl. And most players wouldn't play if they didn't get paid so much. Which means there wouldn't even be an NFL to watch. SO NO THEY DONT GET PAID TOO MUCH. And also they can get seriously injured as in paralyzed for life from playing this sport. So they play with a big risk over the heads. Because if they did get paralyzed and they didn't make as much money as they did. Who is going to pay the bill??? That's right they have too. So they need the money. Also most of the players have families to support.

  • It may be entertainment but.....

    I think that since so many of the people in America are poor and homeless that we should take some money from the millions they make to help out those struggling and in need. I mean they may risk injury and harm but people in our country our in need while they make millions for running up and down a field while holding a ball and being tackled.
