Exactly. He worked for his money as does everyone else. Every year he has to go on tour, make endorsements and appearances etc for that kind of money. He also has to practice being one of the best in the WORLD at what he does. He didn't get this money in a vacum. I'm sure he has investments but he still must manage them along with paying taxes on them.

All that aside- Paying over half of what you earned in taxes IS absurd. No apologies or regrets required for the pc crowd or those filled with more class envy than an ambulance chaser at an accident scene.
