I do not support any pro sports!
When they make millions to play a game , when there are people out there working their a$$ off to pay bills.
We should pay them less and pay our military men and women more. We look at these people as they are heroes.

I would agree with that. And I can't stand the NCAA either profiting big time regardless of what happens to those kids, who mostly walk away with nothing financially since few make it to the pros. Most do get a free education which we pay for indirectly.

1. Supply and demand. There aren't too man GREAT athletes. MOST people want to watch sports, so great athletes are in high demand.

2. Some people that work their asses off may not have gone to college or worked their ass of to be that good at a sport.

3. The government doesn't pay these athletes. You can't say that we should pay our troops more INSTEAD. Although I do agree our service men and women should be paid better.

4. Some athletes ARE heroes and or good role models. It's when kids confuse the fame and money as the things to look up to that it's a problem.

His AMA super bike team also carries the National Guard livery.
Not all pro athletes are like Mike Tyson, Dennis Rodman and Arron Hernandez.
Sure they make millions to play sports, but they also create jobs and entertainment by doing so. Many also donate their time and notoriety to good causes, not to mention millions of dollars.

If you had the chance to play a game for millions, you'd take it, if you say you wouldn't, you'd be lying, period.

Are out military and public service professionals under paid? You're damn right they are.. That blood is on the hands of your elected officials and has absolutely nothing to do with pro sports.
People join public service willingly, no one is forced to these jobs.
