On a lighter note in here, When I was 16-17, for some odd reason my girlfriend at the time was getting credit card applications, so we started filling them out and sending them in, made out to other members of the household. In the end, one appeared in her 4 month old daughter's name and one emblazoned with Mickey's name. Mickey was their big white dog.

And here I was thinking, 4 month old daughter, and Mickey's last name was going to be Mouse.

re: and individual entertainers and athletes on the national scene do affect more people than individual teachers do. I'm not saying the effect they have is more profound, just that the sheer number of lives they touch is greater. I don't really think it's a bad thing for them to make the money they make.

What do you think would affect the long term economic outlook of your country more, no football players, no basketball players, no baseball or hockey players or no teachers?
Doctors and nurses save lives daily yet, most will never see the kind of remuneration athletes do.
I simply think it’s so unfair and just plain corrupt.

Stop watching sports and going to see them and the salaries will drop due to lack of funds. I think pro athletes are over paid, however the money keeps flowing and they deserve their share. The owners take all the risk and as such deserve a bigger share.

I think I'll do that. Oh, wait, I already did. ;\)

FWIW, elite athletes have been very highly paid since the days of Roman gladiators.

Medical advances extend life. Entertainers and athletes make life worth living for some people. What's more important?

Good point. It's medicine and entertainment in one.
