My response to anyone that thinks sports or movie salaries are crazy... get a job where people are willing to spend their hard-earned money to watch YOU do your job.
What president would that be? Because Obama had 4 yrs and he didn't do squat about wealth inequality and he just won a 2nd term and he hasn't helped out yet. I wish he was the socialist liberal some say he is.
When anyone of us goes on a job interview and they ask: "How much do you want?" You say: "$25m a year." They say: "We will pay you $10m." You say: "NO....$25m!" They say:"Ummm.....well....ok." Then they raise ticket and concession prices to help pay you. But, now the fans can't afford to come to the games as much. So the owners cry in their soup, and want the players to take a pay cut blaming the players for making too much. Well dumbo if you wouldn't have agreed to pay Cindy Babycry that much to play on your Penguins to begin with you wouldn't have locked-out all the rest of the players putz!!
I can't blame the players for asking for the money because they can ask for whatever they want, but, I can blame the owners for agreeing to pay it because it is up to the owners to agree to sign the checks in the first place! Hows it go??? just say no to their high salary request's during the interview!!
As for blowing all their money. You take most of these players who come-up from having nothing to now having it all. They don't know how to handle it so they hire someone who ends up cheating um out of it, or mishandles it as well.
And yes if you had that much money odds are you too would go broke. Just look at all the lotto winners whom hit it big and a few years later they too are back to work again.
And Millard Fillmore had nothing over Pappy No and Lora C. Cord........EH!!
And what was traction is now skid marks... Another 2 weeks of the season cancelled, thru December 30. Next announcement will either be a deal or cancellation of the entire season.
I'm hoping for cancellation at this point.
Missing my St. Louis Blues!
Almost all of the top line professional sports have fallen off my radar due to the ******* and moaning of players and owners alike. Baseball remains iffy.
there an't going to be no 2012/13 hockey season it's too late besides they canned the outdoor game & the allstar wkend :bawling:
