I have season tickets for the Phx Suns, Cards and WNBA team ( daughter). Yes, they are way overpaid brats but I think things will be changing for the next few years and most teams will need to lower their prices in order to keep the seat filled...

I think you are right. Economic problems will catch up to pro sports by this summer, and they might actually have to deal with *some* of the real world problems us peons have. Wouldn't that be amazing? LOL.

On the other hand, I'm more irritated by top executives of Fortune 100 companies making more than a couple million a year. Especially when you consider at a few of the companies, the CEO makes more in a year than all his non-management employees combined. Thats just plain sick greed...

I've had Angels seasts since my dad started buying them when I was 17...(31 years)..

Artie Moreno has driven the prices so high that after the 2010 All Star game I'm likely to give them up because I (and my friends) just can't afford them anymore..

In 1999 we paid $3200, this year was almost $8500 for the same two seats and parking. Greed...pure greed..

I have Ducks tickets too, but up in the 400's...those I will hang onto. They have frozen prices and a full season of four seats there costs me about $2500..

I hope no one pays Manny and Boras and he gets to sit out the season. Turning down 45 million dollars for two years and saying it's not enough? Wow, just wow...

I've always enjoyed college sports more than pro because they're not over paid babies. They're under the table paid babies...

I went to a minor league hockey game with some friends last weekend!.

Great price and a nsv I was the small guy of the group..

I also was good I had a bottle of water and stayed away from the snacks!.

Those tiny seats are getting more roomy every day!..

I'll watch on TV. I don't understand how people worship these athletes. Athletes who probably couldn't care less about them, except for the fees people pay to see them. I don't complain, 'cause I refuse shell out my hard earned money...

Overpaid is subjective. Only about 700 people play in an NHL season, roughly 50 for only a few games..

The scarcity of people who can do the job has to be taken into account. It's different than a typical 9-5 desk gig - people don't pay to watch that. They don't place bets on it, they don't generate hotel or restaurant visits..

I deal with athletes for work and can say that despite some of the salaries, hockey players have been among the most level-headed people. Not just amongst athletes, but overall..

In some markets the "average fan" not going won't affect the bottom line. Case in point, baseball's Yankees and Toronto's Leafs..

I certainly can't fault those with an average career span of five or six years grabbing the biggest deal offered...

Greedy bastages, all of them. The career span of the sport yes but these are people with college degrees that can easily get another career after they are done with pro sports..

This is not the early years of these sports where the salary was small. It makes one appreciate a player like Robert Smith, the RB for the Vikes a few years back who leaves in his prime to continue his education in the medical field...

IMO they get paid for entertainment. So actors and actresses in Hollywood must be overpaid too for doing 1 to 2 films a year on average..

Many of the pro athlete's also participate in youth programs. I think it's subjective. If you had to stay in shape ALL YEAR AROUND, for fear of losing your job, play in a contact sport where you could be crippled for life, then I think you'd be okay with accepting the millions because they are paying for you. On the other hand if you had to do the paying, then you think it's too much...

I know all we hear about are the huge salaries in pro sports, but in reality those are probably the exception and not the rule. If you look over a 53-man pro football roster, there will be many more guys making 400,000-750,000 than there will be making millions...

I had no idea just how low they used to be until my late older brother explained to me..

He was drafted by the Chicago Cardinals in a late round of 1956. At the same time he was approached by the Marine Corps about joining and playing football for a team they fielded..

When he averaged out the NFL contract against the Marine Corp offer to join as a 2nd Lt., he found that he'd actually make MORE money by joining the Marines than by playing pro football..

He served three years and ended up playing in the AFL after all in 1960-1962 when an injury stopped his career. In three years of pro football he made so little money that he needed an offseason job just to feed his family. (I was an infant at the time, so I don't recall it all firsthand.)..

They go in the overpaid category as well..

Injury along with the medical struggles after they leave the sport can both be a burden..

So based on that I would have to say the actors are more overpaid as they can go on for years if they are talented enough...

Free Market baby. I say get as much as you can while you can..

If the common fan gets pissed off enough about his or her season tickets and stops buying them, the price will come down. It's all supply and demand..

I just wish that I could get a hit 3 out of 10 times successfully and get paid $10 Million a year. Failing 70% at a time and getting paid? That's really living the dream..

They deserve whatever they can get...
