Overpaid

The NHL, MLB, NFL, NBA, CFL... etc. Although I am a fan of most, is bleeding the economy dry. Look at how much some of the athletes make:

See that? Terrible. Shows awful greed. Sure when your famous you get fan revenue, sponsorship deals and such but $100 in one year, Tiger Woods? No. To be honest, I'd hate to be rich, having so much money not knowing what to do with would suck and lead to temptation in the world of drugs, alcohol and other vices.

Actors are overpaid as well. For what? entertaining us (except if your name is Seth Rogen... he sucks).

I often ask why these people are paid do dang much? and people who work way harder than any combination of them combined gets barely enough... it's stupid.

ATTENTION ATHLETES AND ACTORS: YOU DO NOT DESERVE YOUR INSANELY HIGH WAGES!!! ASK FOR A HUGE PAY CUT!

Here's a suggstion: they should either make minimum wage, or have a MANDATORY clause in their contract stating they must give at least 1/2 of their money away to a good charity (clean water in Africa, AIDS, Tsunami relief, Haiti etc).

Perhaps this kind of pay cut would help poverty. Perhaps I am bitter... perhaps we cold start a revolution?
