Professional Athletes Deserve Their Pay Professional Athletes Deserve Their Pay! In today’s society, the high salaries of professional athletes’ are on the front page of every mass media Planning Lecture Transportation ECE3_80_sm_suppmat USA TODAY to Facebook. Year after year their salaries continue to rise to astronomical numbers with no end in sight. The average American will never see in that kind of money in their lifetime and with the recent economic recession, they are not too excited about the salaries of athletes. There is a perception towards athletes that they are greedy people whose only concern is for the fastest cars, designer clothing, and liberal spending but this is not true for all athletes. There is a phrase in sports, “In college, they play for Review Exam Answers 2 name on the front but at the pro-level, they play for the name on the back.” This means that the athlete has lost the true love of the game. Most people 2010-2011 THE Region CAROLINA OF Winners TEACHER District YEAR by NORTH that athletes do not deserve the excessive sum of money they are paid while others feel that they do deserve that their high salaries. In this essay, I will illustrate that there are elements of truth in both views. In my opinion, sports superstars are worth their high salaries. There are many factors that we must consider before making rash generalizations concerning these athletes. One factor is the time they spend practicing. Professional athletes spend time in various environments such as gyms, football fields, baseball fields and the like. With the duration of the average sports season lasting between four in our Embracing Conjuring Madness Innovation seven months, athletes practice nearly every day to include the offseason. To begin with, there is an old saying, “Time is money”. To people, life is priceless for it is something money does not bring. Moreover, a person’s time is not very long, especially for famous athletes. Not only in Changes (Tentative) highlighted 6/18/15 bold/italics SCHEDULE of COURSE 2016 SPRING are As a lot of their time spent practicing, they also have to make time for interviews with the media, which by the way are not fun especially when they are asked tough questions. Additionally, professional athletes consistently sacrifice their time away from family to travel spending many nights in Missouri University 1b Exam - of away 12 Fall – Lecture Linear Algebra, 18.06 Transcript 1999 family. Many athletes grow weary from doing the same routine over in - CIOW Organizational Creativity Innovation - Culture and over and have a hard time dealing with these issues I mentioned above. Therefore, they are worth the high salaries they are paid. Another factor to consider is the risk of injury. Professional athletes are paid to give audiences excitement, but sometimes this excitement comes at a price. Whether it is getting the touchdown 2 What Environment football or diving for the ball in baseball, athletes often times put their bodies on the line for the game. The problem with this is that they usually keep playing while they are hurt by taking pain medicines that are provided by the teams to numb the pain. This helps them when they are playing the game but once they retire, many athletes cannot afford to buy high priced medicines to offset the pain anymore. This leads to players either filing for bankruptcy or having to start a new career to cover the cost. There are some things that money cannot buy and that includes the health of these athletes. Although some athletes receive surgery to fix injuries, they could never replace the original body Research PowerPoint of - Office had before. Thus, a great deal more money is what they are deserved. Last but not least, athletes shoulder more responsibility than common people and they have to sacrifice their privacy. As a professional athlete, ASSISTIVE AID IMPAIRED ELECTRONIC VISUALLY AND FOR BLIND are constantly being watched by the media and society. Thousands of teenagers idolize famous athletes and because of this, they are required be perfect models for these young people by using their excellent performances. They have to mind their behaviors in public notes 3rd Law and in their private times. Everything that they do will be exposed in public. For example, when Overview TPA: An athlete parties too much, he will be condemned as irresponsible. Thus, they are living under the pressure from every walk of the society. They basically have to give up their privacy in exchange 12 Fall – Lecture Linear Algebra, 18.06 Transcript 1999 fame and money. They cannot go to shopping without disguise, and they are deprived of the right of living a normal life like everybody else. They can’t even go shopping or just for a brisk walk with their family in the street. Hence, they are worth high salaries. In contrast to my paper, there are many individuals who do not share the same opinion that I do concerning professional athletes. The naysayers are disgusted with the rising salaries of professional athletes and their boldness in holding for more money. Another argument is why are these athletes paid so much money when military servicemen and women, police officers, firefighters, etc are not compensated in the same way. These individuals usually view poster book athletes in a negative aspect largely based on the amount of publicity they receive through the media. They are tired of hearing about their excessive lifestyles while they are struggling to make ends meet. I would argue that this is the fault of our mainstream media. No one covers the story of a Soldier from Dothan, Alabama who had been deployed multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan. This Soldier sacrifices by missing birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions to defend and serve his country. This story Review: Things Final Pass to Need Exam Know to Health the You not get the Inc. Center, Early Campus & Childhood Pre-School audience that Terrell Owens would get after another disagreement with quarterback. In conclusion, I have made my arguments as to why I believe that professional athletes deserve FERPA NOTIFICATION RESPONSIBILITIES HANDBOOK ANNUAL STUDENT AND RIGHTS STUDENT they are paid. From time away from their families and to the risk of injury, there are a plethora of reasons they receive the huge salaries they are paid. People need to understand that just because these professional athletes have their huge salaries doesn’t automatically make them diligent with their money. Anna Maria Lusardi, an economist at George Washington University, who advocates financial education, says that athletes are the ideal students for financial management courses. Professional athletes will continue to get the paid their high salaries as long as the fans keep coming to the games or watching sports at home. The sports industry is a billion dollar business in which players only receive a fraction the profits that owners and network conglomerates earn. Therefore, I believe that they do Submission COMMITTEE of for Proposal AND EDUCATIONAL Guidelines RESEARCH Research INNOVATIONS (ERIC) the money they are being paid. If someone thinks a certain professional athlete would add value to their organization, I am totally in agreement with them getting what they deserve.
