    exactly. I think a million a year is the top paycheck anyone aught to pull down… if you can do better on your own, do it. The Magic Johnson contract seems to be the best for all concerned. $1,000,000 for the rest of his life as long as he never plays for another team. MJ asked permission to play on the Dream Team. Imagine the work ethic a CEO who is motivated to see the company remain profitable for the rest of his life.

      Yes, it’s a Liberal double standard and it’s what virtually every Liberal applies to every situation, problem or circumstance.

        the sports figures aren’t all that liberal

          Don’t know, don’t watch sports. What I do know is that Liberals apply double standards to every situation. Liberals love to pay for freebies with other people’s money. Liberals will lie every time they speak or communicate. Liberals support a narrative that furthers their objectives regardless of who it hurts or how many it hurts. Liberals support violence and hatred under the guise of peace and equality.

            It is not just the Liberal who is prone to violating the 10th Commandment.

              Well there are those who call themselves “Conservatives” who aren’t at all conservative nor Republicans. It’s that lying thing again…

              another commandment that is not the sole purview of one group or the other for violating

              As the scriptures say: “none are perfect, ALL have sinned and fallen short”. It really comes down to deliberate lies or unintentional mistakess. The godless wonders would like us to believe that it’s all the same.

              and the willingness to recognize one’s errors

              That “willingness to recognize one’s errors” comes under the “all have sinned”. This is why the godless wonders who don’t believe in God are clueless and narcissistic.

    I did not read all of them, but am assuming your are speaking of Trump. He is supposed to be running this country, not with the head in the sand about his millions he can make.

    Don’t blame the player, blame the “payer”! It is the people buying the tickets that allow for such paychecks that those people get. For instance, game 5 between Golden State & Cavs set records for ticket prices. The commentators briefly talked about the courtside seats went for $125,000 each! How about the upcoming Mayweather fight to which he said he would not fight for less than a guaranteed 7 figure payday.

    I personally know several sports nuts that would spend their last dime on a ticket rather than a life-saving morsel of food to eat. About the only thing I know of that comes close to what people spend on sports is what Americans spend on pets. It is so far unbalanced that it is really hard to believe but again, it’s the “payer” that’s to blame. One can’t blame another for excepting those paydays. Like anyone else, it is a job to them and they are earning the best living that they can get.

    I am nobody special and the 1st to admit it but in the best working years of my life, I was clearing $300,000 per year. Was I worth it? Absolutely NOT. Did I take those paychecks? Damn right I did! When I was in my 20’s and my friends were all making $2.10 per hour, I was knocking down $27.50 but only because I was doing the things that people would spend, spend and spend even more for getting what they wanted. I learned then that if one watched what people were into at the time (trend) & learned how to do it and do it well that there was almost no limit to what one could make.

    Sorry, I sort of rambled on but as I started off with is the long & short of it all … Don’t blame the player, blame the “payer”
