Tajshak2k: Whether or not he deserves it is irrelevant. What does it matter? It's not making you any richer or poorer. On a second note, this is a useless debate because there is absolutely nothing anyone ever could or should do about it. The organization decides who makes what money in order to keep them on their team. The millions of dollars these players make is pocket change compared to what the organizations make so they will dig as deep into their bank accounts as they need to build a team. Everyone acts like it's their tax dollars going into their salary. No! It's some fat rich guy's money going into their salary.
Our society is out of wack!! Yes they are overpaid! Should a man playing a childs game ever make more money and be held in a higher esteem then a doctor who performs surgery to save or extend human life? That would just be one example !!
Engineers would be another, we wouldnt want to use a bridge designed by tight end or a center fielder now would we.
