Then there are the grossly overpaid, Neanderthal athletes who can't form complete sentences in their after-game interviews. Then they go out and sponsor illegal dog fights, beat their girlfriend, get in shootouts at strip clubs, drive drunk, and just generally prove that they have no class and no upbringing. These people shouldn't be role models. They should be inmates.

It's a hideous injustice that someone who can't read and write, but can throw a ball because of massive steroid injections, gets paid a thousand times more than one of our soldiers in Iraq.

No arguments there. Most athletes do get away with crimes that us normal people could never dream of and they're grossly overpaid especially in comparison to the men and women who wear the flag.

In fairness, most athletes ask NOT to be viewed as role models but children will still view them as because they don't have much as to look up to as most parents in America only see their children for a few hours per day at best while teachers, babysitters, day care workers and other people's children play bigger hands in raising them.

Go deeper and point the fingers at the real culprits. Trust, it's not the athletes.

My "end game" is to logically understand why a supposedly grown adult would wear sports jerseys with a players number and name on them. I mean, I used to play army and wear helmets when I was a child while pretending to be a soldier. But then I got past the sixth grade and stopped. I find issues regarding mental health to be important, hence my desire to understand.
There are a multitude of educated idiots that will never understand sports and their fans, but that says more about you than any fifteen posts could.
So now that you are in 7th Grade, does your teacher know you troll the internet making an Aaaassss of yourself?

Yes, what society needs is to elect you dictator in chief, then like adolph hitler, you can decide what people are worth, privatize the NFL, privitize banks, require mercedes to make chevy volts, build some shovel-ready autobahns, whatever. all hail socialist drivel.

do you have any proof of your "facts"? because people do not normally go to federal prison for dog fighting; they get a fine. People do not normally go to prison in new york for shooting themselves in the leg, they get a fine, maybe small jail time.

We already have a dictator-in-chief in the White House whose main hobby is urinating on the United States Constitution. And he's a sports nut, of course.

By the way, it's been considered extremely passe` for over a decade to bring Hitler or Nazis into internet debates. You might want to stretch your imagination a little bit and try to get past Hitler comparisons or Yo Momma insults.

Purple Faithful, let me educate you son. Sit down and pay attention now.

Michael Vick did something horribly unprecedented and there were over 70 animals abused and/or found dead on his property. He was also guilty of illegally funding the bets and illegally betting on the fights he was funding and he was also found guilty of drug activities as well. So yea, if a normal guy did the same thing, federal prison he goes!

Plaxico Burress was indicted on TWO counts of CRIMINAL possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment which carry no less than 3.5 years in prison. The gun was not licensed in New York or in New Jersey, where Burress lived. His license to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Florida had expired in May 2008 and New York gun laws do NOT recognize other state C&C laws. On top of that Burress tried to hide the gun after the altercation so AGAIN, if a normal guy did the same thing he too goes to federal prison.

I don't know where you live but if one gets to do all that and serve little to no jail time or get a slap on the wrist fine you'd better keep it a secret because there goes your neighborhood!

Schools out and look how much smarter you are now...

I think for Purple Faithful to "stretch his imagination" would be too much of a stretch. I think he's good and harmless where he's at mentally now.

no, they do not. that was the point of my bringing it up. Dog fighting is not uncommon in the south. guys just don't go to prison for it. it is also not uncommon to get charged in NYC for a gun. Again, it is uncommon to go to STATE prison. You stated sports athletes get treated easier, not the same. I offered two examples where they were treated harsher than normal. You need to find some other people who went to FEDERAL prison for longer than Mike Vick to prove your point, on him. or longer for a gun charge to prove your point on Burress - saying normal people get the same treatment does not prove your claim athletes get special treatment for crimes. Nor did you offer proof of that new claim, that athletes get treated the same.

And yet you wish to abolish the free market, because it is unfair to pay someone based on what the market dictates for their skill.

Allowing your self to be offended isn't very mature. The statements stand and are very sincere and clear. Debate them or don't. I could care less. No one has demonstrated any ability too yet.
If you could offend me you might have a point but since I was speaking in generalities and the fact that you can't, you don't.

You say out of one side of your mouth you're sincere. Very sincere even. Then, out of the other side you say you could care less. I say I'll let you remain ignorant because if you've gone this long in your life thinking the backwards way you've been thinking there's nothing any of us can say to change your mind now and furthermore seeing as I believe you're as sincere as cancer stop your bullshit charade already and hurry up with your anti-climactic end game already.

Dude, everyone knows but you it seems that athletes get "special treatment" when they get in trouble with the law. The NFL and NBA etc are their own organizations that most times govern themselves.

I personally don't care about who is in prison now serving more time than Vick or Burress as I'm sure at some level they deserve it. I was merely agreeing with Overseer about the class of lacktherof that some athletes have and I took it a step further by pointing out the obvious that average Joe's get the book thrown at them while most athletes are allowed to slide for one reason or another.

Look, I'm a former athlete who played at a semi-professional level in soccer and I played football and basketball also. I'm also a die hard 49er, Lakers and Manchester United supporter and you're coming at me like I'm trying to put supporting your club down or something...Chill.

Just for the hell of it since you think you have a point, go ahead and prove beyond a doubt that people that committed the same acts and the same multiple criminal offenses as Vick, Burress, Stalworth etc. served less time while pro athletes served more time. Knock yourself out.

No, I want people to re-evaluate their priorities and values. That alone will kill the 50 million dollar salaries for athletes.

Which athletes make 50 million dollar salaries? I'm not aware of any that make that much
