I have a problem with the ammount of money thrown around in sport and entertainment in general. Sport as a whole sees capital in the quintillions every year around the world. Yet that capital never truly goes back into the economy or infrastructure. Yes, you pay tax, however the capital generated by the sport and entertainment industry only really circle in one area; the sport and entertainment industry. Some of these are tax exempt organizations which makes the effect even more pronounced. Yes, tourism and such are factors. Yet tourism sees the same issue with 80% of the revenue generated never leaving the tourism area. So basically you have generators that do not benefit economy outside their respective fields. Yes there are exceptions. Not extremely often though.

I honestly feel that sportsman get paid way too much. The capital generated by sport alone in America within 5 years would be able to buy America out of its debt twice over. I would rather see that money go toward economical growth, infrastructural growth, job creation, education and trade.

That's just my opinion though.


But then how would Chris Brown buy his maserati with phantom rims?

Many Korean pro gamers make just as much money as real sports players do.


Maybe as much as little league

I dearly hope you're exaggerating. There isn't even quadrillions of dollars I'd wager in North America.
