We all know it’s a free market. Capitalism y’all. But fo real, does it bother you at all?

The only way it possibly bothers me, would be the contribution to higher ticket prices. But they are not the sole factor in ticket prices, so no.

Salaries don't but their greed and whiny bitch attitudes do.

It's the trickle down effect that bugs me..... 50% of live sporting events are commercials despite already paying for the cable/satellite, where the channel lineup can change at any time depending on when contracts run out and one side wants to hold out.... paying $50+ to park at an event, etc, etc.

It's a cash cow, and everyone who stands to profit inside said cow should get their part of it while they can... it just sucks when the greed is so blatant as to fuck your customers from behind and they can't do a damn thing about it as long as they want your product.

Anyone remember Juan Gonzalez? Played 30G for Royals in 04 and made 4.5M. Quit on the team with a mystery “injury” mid season. In 2005 he signed for $600k with Cleveland and hurt himself again - in his only AB! Quit again.


Come on. Don’t any of you tell me he earned his salaries. That’s bullshit.

Player salaries don't bother me. Corporate executives that constantly run companies into bankruptcy and raid pension plans while getting a bonus bother me. We as sports fans are the consumers of sports and through our actions support the salaries.

Get what you can get. For participants of contact sports, there is a real danger that the players will suffer life changing injuries.

Life isn't fair; so what? That's life!

I don’t mind a bit. But I also don’t think just because someone is a bazillioaire that it means they are some sort of expert on politics or social shit. The only thing that irks me is millionaire athlete trying to tell people how they should think or act

Some of you are stating "take all you can get while you can". Lets say you, as a die hard Chief fan, are a gifted athlete and have two offers on the table. One is from your lifelong favorite team, Kansas City, who offer you a three year contract averaging $8.5 million. The other is from the LV Raiders as a three year deal averaging $9 million. Which do you accept?

As a businessman, I take the Vegas offer because there's no state income tax.

If anyone ever bitched about a player and referenced his salary, he is barred from choosing “0”

Players greed irritates me, like the Prescott bullshit.
