I personally don't think pro athletes make to much money. Here is the way I look at it the average guy who works at an accounting firm makes his employer about $100,000 per year and makes about $40,000 per year.An athlete helps make his employer about $600,000 per game(just a wild stab at all these numbers) and makes about $4,000,000 a year on average. So considering how much they bring in they don't make too much. Also most workers are with there family's from 5pm to 8am plus lets say three weeks vacation. Hockey players for example get 2 months to 4 months and a few days during the season not with the team.Most of that time is spent training so athletes do have a very tough life so I think they deserve that much. So that is why pro athletes don't make too much.
