Oh yeah..... they have marketed that.

Soooo. Some beef sides are worth more than other beef sides?

Well; Mahomes is the newest replacement to corn feed beef and then Kobe beef, You pay more to get more.....

I just can only watch in some ways; as the prices go up and up and up. Iíve never had Kobe beef. Never even seen it.

Yup, capitalism is great, and in a way, itís made America great. But with the price of some things going up and up, I do not look forward to the idea - I might not be able to afford Kobe beef.

Weíre not that close to that scenario yet though, right? So go get all you can, before it is that scenario.....
I applaud you for choosing a handle that so accurately represents this post.

Nope. Make as much as you can while you can. Nothing wrong with that, and it's really none of my business discussing someone else's financials.

Only time I may have some issue related to pro athlete's salary is when they complain.

I don't wanna hear that shit. Same with politics. They're a form of entertainment., nothing more. That's why unless I personally know the guy, I don't have any ounce of emotional attachment to any pro athlete.

Some people make it this big ****in thing when an athlete dies, most recently Kobe Bryant. I have a friend who literally almost started crying when he heard the news and confirmed said news was legit/real. (At first we didn't know if news was real because the Twitter handle posting it was not heard of before). Certainly a sad story for sure, and I felt bad for the family, the daughter etc. But I'll be honest I was tired of hearing about it by the end of the next day or so, and after that decided not to turn the TV onto sports for a couple/few wks.

Personally I don't care much about these guy's personal lives/what they do off the field, what kind of trouble they get into, what they buy etc. Not any of my biz.

Just play, get paid, entertain and stfu.

I havenít read much of this thread.

Does what they get paid bother me? No

Do I think they are over paid? Yes

Would I rather the money go to the owners? No

I think the biggest problem is what we are charged for cable/dish/tickets and so on.

Do I pay it? Yes

Nope.

Athletes are paid handsomely due to the league's TV contracts. More viewers equal more advertising dollars which in turn lead to larger Broadcast Rights fees.

If the NFL, NBA or MLB were less popular, thus less eyeballs on their broadcasts, the athletes would be paid far less, like those in the MLS.

But the NFL remains the TV Ratings king and there are no other programs that have the kind of reach that the NFL has each and every year, and look no further than the 2019 NFL season, which had 41 of the top 50 rated broadcasts.

There's no one to "blame" for athlete's salary other than the fans themselves. Outside of the 16 games aired on ESPN, all of the other 240 regular season games are broadcast on Free Over-The-Air networks, not including the playoffs and Super Bowl, which are also aired on Free TV.

That was my point... we are over charged all around. Iím not complaining and I obviously pay it like everyone else. Just answering the question. It doesnít bother me what they are paid, just stating the fact the owners, cable companies, And businesses who pay for advertising and so on make more than they should off of us. It is what it is and wonít change, so Iím glad the athletes are getting a bigger chunk rather than all of it going to the owners.

Dude, what the ****? You donít NEED cable in order to watch NFL games.

If a game is on ESPN but in your teamís viewing area, you can watch it for free.

Youíre just totally missing the point.

I think youíre missing the point. Youíre too focused on the cable part. And itís not really even that big of a deal to me, just more pointing out why they are paid what they are paid.

No, you're NOT pointing out how they're paid. You're missing the point in its entirety.

That said, have a great night!
