Why don't they pay professional athletes..
« on: October 09, 2012, 07:03:18 PM »
Why don't they pay professional athletes a normal salary (like $80,000), but give them multi-million dollar bonuses for wins?

 ???

Motivate these stupid fuckers to really try.

sounds like a great strategy, but you could lose out on top players that would prefer guaranteed money instead of having to earn their cash.

Happens in baseball every once in a while. David wells got paid based on wins during his last few years with the Yankees.

lebron can put 20k asses in seats plus millions on tv.   the 'cost' of production of the game is minimal - just a nice court, cameras, and 2 teams of 12 guys playing...

lebron makes 350k a game because he makes way more than that for the owners and tv companies.

somebody will definitely get shanked when they miss a field goal, drop a pass, have a last second goal scored, miss a shot, etc..

Yep, basketball players...even with the amount they get is just a drop in the bucket for all the revenue they bring ihn
