Someone needs to bring pro-athlete salaries back to earth !
Pro-athlete salaries started getting out of control like 20 years ago. No athlete deserves mega-millions for playing an unimportant game. Life would go on if these games did not exist.
Why should these guys thrive this way when most of the country is struggling just to survive and put food on the table ?
Lance Briggs left a $250,000 Lamborghini wrecked on the side of the road as if it were a cigarette butt, just to avoid a DUI. 30 years ago,it would have taken like half an NFL team to afford that car. And he's not even very good.
C.C. Sabathia.... $161 million.... 7 years a yankee . He's a pitcher that plays like once every 5 games. Do the math. It comes to about $78,000 per inning pitched. And that's if he pitches a complete game every time. I don't see any championship rings on him.
Just 2 examples out of many of how out of control things are in pro sports. Why is it continuing to get more and more out of control every year ? Because fans not only let it, they make it happen.
There needs to be a nationwide boycott now ! On all pro-sports. Stop watching. Stop buying apparel. Stop betting on it. Stop buying tickets and going to games.
