That is true in a way. In the US Basketball is more popular than soccer. That is why basketball players are paid more. In other countries, soccer is more popular so soccer players get paid more. Soccer in the US is becoming increasingly popular. Soon soccer players could be paid as much as basketball players.
Soccer, since its the most famous sport in the world. Lots of spectators = Lots of Money.
On average basketball players do. Also all of basketball players money is guaranteed money. Normally, a large amount of football players money in their contract has to be earned through statistical and performance incentives.

In America baseball players get more money. In the world soccer players get more money. I know a great soccer player who plays in Barcalona was offered 100,000,00 pounds. That means that in the US that would equel 200,000,000 pounds.
Basketball players do not get food money, they have a salary. The use their own money
Soccer. Because it is worldwide not nationwide, they make a lot more from ticket sales to merchandise ect.
Soccer players in France make $400,000 per year and American soccer players make $300,000 per year.
A baseball player makes more money then a basketball player... most money payed for a baseball player right now is 30.5 mill for Alex Rodriguez. Most for a basketball player this year(2007-08) is 21 mill for Kevin Garnet!
The likely answer is that male soccer players will make more money. This is because male soccer has a larger audience, and therefore gets more attention from corporate sponsorships.
The club plus I think around 15% goes to the players agent
In America, football players. In England, soccer players.

If you mean more money then yes they do get A LOT more money.
Soccer players are like any other athletes. Their pay depends on how good of a player they are, what club they play for, and how much money that club actually has to pay him.
basketball players get paid as much as 20,000,000 a year 456,000
Yes, NBA players get paid to play basketball.
It depends on wat they are or like on how they are famous. Some people might like soccer than basketball or some people might like basketball than soccer. So it depends on the personality to others. They both go to the stadium and battle others right. But other people buy tickets to see them so it really depends on the other person personalities.
