players get paid over $1000

Players get paid a lot of money for like the first season and some of them barely did anything but they still get paid a lot.

over $1,000 per what? Technically we all get paid over $1,000 (anyone with a job that is), it just repends on how long it takes. For instance, $1,000 per seson isn't a lot of money, thats next to no money, however $1,000 per week is still pushing it a bit. I mean we are talking about people who travel and practice hard to be good at what they do and clearly they are some of the best which is why theyre in a professional league, but even $1,000 per week seems to be on the low side of money to be honest you should factor in their bills, the taxes they have to pay. Im sure they don't pay for travel expenses but if i had a job that asked me to travel so much and be away from my home and family I would expect to be making more. However, $1,000 a day IS in fact a lot of money. So this debate depends on the time frame you are claiming

The notion of being paid too much rests on the belief that it is unworthy

To say that sportsmen are unduly paid requires us to believe that this sum of money is unworthy, for it it was so, then we would say that they are paid 'enough'. here, we are looking at a benchmark of judgement in evaluating whether the work itself concords with the remuneration's received. Often we use the range of professions in the market as the touchstone for calibration, as when everybody is paid for working differently, we have something to compare. Many are likely to argue that Sportsmen are paid unduly because other job's which pay less perhaps deserve to be paid more, not necessarily because sportsmen are not hard working or because they are not talented enough.

Sportsmen are paid relative to what the sport earns in revenue

I used to think that sportsmen and women were overpaid, but you have to realize that sportsmen and women generate enormous amounts of revenue through ticket sales, sponsorship and especially television rights.

For example, the Premier League television rights are worth about $5 billion a year
(http://www.albawaba.com/sport/eenglish-premier-league-tv-rights-break-%C2%A35bn-barrier-450951). Divide that figure by 380 (the number of games per season) and each game is worth $13 million in television revenue alone!

One could argue that sportsmen and women could take less money and more money could go towards more worthy causes, but in the end it is their money and they are entitled to spend it as they wish.
