I Think Pro Athletes And Actors Make Way Too Much Money

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 478 People


    The professional sports industry is one thing and a very different machine than acting in its various forms. But... check the statistics. The vast majority of those who make a living from some form of acting are living at or even below the poverty level. Less than 1% of all...

    It has always bothered me

    that a football player or a star actor make millions while the police and paramedics are barely able to support their families? I hope it's not just me but doesn't this obviously seem off?

    that save lives just because they have an entertaining talent. It shows the priorities that humans have.

    Sure Do

    Most actors don't make nearly as much as pro athletes make annually so my focus here is on the athletes making the rediculous amounts of money. Tiger Woods... the richest man in sports almost became the first sports BILLIONAIRE, he was worth 900 million before his divorce and now...

    For kicking a ball around they make millions,

    while people who save lives make little to nothing. Don't upset me.. But hey, it's we the people that make them rich. No one to blame but ourselves.

    criticized athletes, entertainers, or actor/actresses for making too much money, or comparing them to soldiers, teachers, or police officers. But, completely ignore that athletes and entertainers are workers in *billion* dollar industries. Most people completely neglect the...
