Seems that every one of the major spectator sports (in the USA) has about a 2-week period just before the start of the season when everybody and their grandmother are complaining about the high salaries that these jocks get.
And, all year long we hear about the high pay levels of entertainers.
My question for the throbbing brian of Cyburbia.....should they be getting these big bucks?
Jessica Simpson.....classic beauty......is she worth what she gets for being in a film? A 300-pound lineman for a pro football team.....is he worth what he gets paid? A baseball player with good eye-hand coordination.....is he worth it?
What say you?
This Bear's opinion (probably not widely shared): You get what the market will pay. Doesn't matter if they are good or not. If the market says "We want to see you" or "We want you in our line" or "We want you to hit 300".....they finish these statements with ".....and here's how much we will give you to give us what we want."
