The few thing I have not agreed with when it comes to professional sports is the ridiculous amount of money that is handed out for athletes to perform!
My passion is baseball, and I'll use that as an example. This year the New York Yankees signed five all star players to their line up this off season simply just on free agent signings. This doesn't include any players that needed contract extensions already on the team, or official office employees. On those five players, the Yankees spent $465 million dollars on their contracts.
I'm sorry but these men get to do what they love, getting paid for it is a bonus, this money is great for them but think on a larger scale; this money is so much more useful outside of spending it on these athletes. The list goes on and on as to what it could go towards so I am not even going to use an example.
I love baseball, and sports is my passion. But this amount of money being spent on athletes is simply wrong. I don't believe we will ever see shift in the way this money is being handed out and it is a sad, true reality.
