How out of touch are athletes and sportscasters?

Posted by: 1814Username

I was watching the NFL Network and ESPN yesterday. These people are making millions upon millions playing a game and talking about games. Yet, they complain. Even the sportscasters are clueless, the female host on the NFL network was talking about how she has four figure shoes.

Most people in sports are clueless but there are a few that aren't.

America in general is clueless. We have millions going to bed hungry in this country and millions more throwing away massive amounts of food at restaurants. This is just one small example.

No one is clueless. They are just greedy.

The rich in America are clueless. Take the Walton family for instance. They have 147 billion in the bank just sitting there doing nothing. The could reinvest back into society much more than they do.

People in sports are clueless. To pay a person $20 million dollars for 16 football games is crazy.

I'd say a lot of people in sports are more in touch with poor people than the average citizen because so many of them grew up in poor areas.

Yep and once they make it, they forget those people I think. It is not everyone but most. I just chose sports as a topic for this poll, but really it is the rich. I am not talking about the middle class or the upper middle class, but the really wealthy people.

I might go with #6 currently...
