This. Earn what you can, while you can.

For the most part football players' salaries don't. Those guys leave a piece of themselves on the field every time they play. Hockey players as well.

I don’t mind if Mike Trout or Lebron or Pat makes $35M. Anymore than it would Tom Cruise or Beyoncé or Madonna or whoever.


But Ian Kennedy pulling down $15 large last year? Yeah.

3-5 years in the NFL can help set them up for future success. Power on

Salaries don't bother me, but how some GM's deal with their budget bugs me for sure

No - but it does bother me that both franchises and the league are tax exempt.

In the larger sense, that the players make more because the league makes more, and the league makes more while raising ticket prices every year and forcing taxpayers to pay for their new stadiums, yes. Just on football terms, no.

I am not and will not ever be bothered by players getting a fair percentage of the revenue generated by the league they drive.

Yes, costs keep going up and the teams keep making more. But let's not pretend for a second that lower player salaries across the board would decrease costs for the average consumer.

We could cut player salaries 30 percent across the board in all pro sports, but we sure as shit wouldn't see a 30 percent drop in costs to attend games.

And that's fine. Attending the games is an experience - you pay a premium for it compared to sitting on your couch or watching from the neighborhood dive bar.
