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.

Why are athletes overpaid?

"Overpaid" is an opinion in a Capitalist economy. Athletes are paid so highly because they are in very high demand, and the sport industries make a significant amount of money off of this demand. Because the industries make so much money, they pay as much as they can to attract the best players to play for their team, as most players are going to play for whoever offers them the most money. If society wanted to reduce athletes' pay, the way to do that would be to eliminate the demand of athletes and the industry would no longer profit.


Why are athletes used so much in advertising?

Companies make athletes advertise them and their products because they believe that if people see that a popular athlete (whom they like), likes a certain company or object fans of this person will buy from the company or the product. In return the athlete gets a sum of money. Also athletes are not forced to advertise a company or product. They advertise the company if they WANT to.


Is it right that so much money is being spent on making movies?

I don't understand. Do you have a problem with the people that make the movies spending their money to make it? Athletes get paid a lot, TV stars get paid alot Where will this end? Personally I have less of a problem with the money that is spent making movies then I have with the money the government seems to make disappear. Food for thought. This seems like a question that is asking for an opinion.

Why shouldn't an athlete be paid as much as they are right now?

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.
