of course, the president in all 4 years of office makes about 1.5 million dollars. but you have to remember the president does not pay for anything, the government does, and he does not pay taxes, the government pays for them. he lives for free, he just runs our country
less the president makes between 300 and 500 thousand dollars a year. a athlete can make millions
There is no comparison, the president makes crap money compared to these athletes now adays.
More money should be spent on academics rather than athletics in school. This is because school is created to educate students rather than to make money via athletics or create athletes.
It could bring in more contestants for the Olympic Games and more viewers for it. If they win a medal, they could score even more viewers (and more money) by becoming a new famous athlete.
Athletes need more sleep so they can be less tired when they need to perform.
Yes they get paid too much not only do they get paid for the sports they play they also get paid for their endorsements which only doubles their pay. Porfessional athletes don't even contribute to the forward progress of society. They do not save peoples lives, or help people. All they are are people with a natural talent showing off. Some athletes do volunteer their personal time and donate to charitable causes. They also help to set good examples to our youth to play sports rather than do drugs. This is why its very dissapointing when an athlete who is looked up to screws up some how with drugs, drunk driving, steroids etc.
because they have more money to by more expensive equipment and facilities
Swimming athletes make 10g a year sports track only makes 1 paeso a year
Athletes should definitely get paid for their skills, and they do. Thousands of people come each year to watch them in person, and even more watch them on television.
Athletes should not be paid as much as they are now because they lose the love of the game and start playing for the money. Athletes need to focus on the game to make it more enloyable for the players and the audience. The only reason that they are still playing and making money is because of the viewers so they need to play for the enjoyment of others and have fun doing it. I believe if they lower the salary then they will get more out of sports.
It is a matter of personal opinion.
Some people believe that sports have become more focused on money than the game. This is due to the high salaries athletes earn.
Generally there are more spectators than athletes.
More than 11,000 athletes
