It depends what you play, who you play for, and how good you are. But the average athlete gets somewhere from five thousand to thirty million a year.
Becuase NCAA is a college team and people who play sports for college don't get paid.

they get paid
The GAA is an amateur organisation so GAA players and managers do not get paid. Many would all have their own jobs or be students, and their GAA activities are basically done in their own time, in the same way that many people are involved in sports. Players and managers do get expenses and occasionally some payments.
In my opinion yes because they play a lot more games than any other sport. Football players only play up to like 20 games. In baseball, they play over 100 games. Plus baseball is a very athletic sport. Yes they may get paid more than they might deserve, but so do most sports figures.
Okay so it does depend on what sports you play. I understand Hockey Players, Soccer Players, Football Players. But I've never understood why baseball players are paid just as much, baseball players don't have to go through the same training as any other sport would. But that's is my estimation. Tell me what you think.
They get paid to play.
Sports is actually both because some people play it for fun and other people play it for money like NBA players or NFL players.
the only time you are usually paid to play paintball is if you win a tournament
