of great importance to our lives
. No one can deny their
effects in our health beneficial health effects
. Many people take part in at least one type of them in their life for entertainment/spare time. However there are some people who play sport as
it is a way they work and make money
Some people believe that professional athletes deserve to get more money. Firstly they devote
most of their time on exercising
for heavy in intensive
sports. It has dangerous impacts on their body. A good example here is weight lifters. So earning high pay
might compensate such problems. Secondly their performances are assessed by many people all over the world and it puts them under severe pressure psychologically. Expectations make it hard for them to concentrate on their work. For example wrestling is one of the most popular sports worldwide and so is the result of its contest.
However others are of the opinion that it is unfair to pay sports professionals considerable salaries compared to workers in other important jobs. Anyhow sports are kind of entertainment means
and not so serious for the economical or social aspects of a country. While there are jobs which results are fateful to country's future,
politicians and government
employees that manage organization of country and approve law based on needs of society are good examples in this case.Moreover it is not justified since children are asked mainly to study their lesson at a first place and sports
at the is of
second importance. But the money devoted to sport shows an alternative.
In conclusion, there is a vast discussion on the issue of paying. But I think professional athletes deserve great money as it is their only job and they are responsible to perform well in it.
- u can also add points that in the current scenario, money is blindly spent on sports persons. They have become a celebrity instead of an athlete..
- what about justification of the money they get? David Beckham gets millions of dollars just for hitting a goal. On the other hand, a soldier patrolling the borders of a country, burning himself in scorching heat and living on the edge gets just a small paycheck ??? A scientist who is working 20 hours a day to do research for us humans gets what....not even recognition (sometimes). Is David Beckham's goal or Sachin Tendulkar's six more important ? or a soldier's/scientist's work is more important?
- Athletes are being overpaid for sure...n the only reason it is because their field is glamorous. they are being watched by millions of viewers while a soldier gets no attention. Pepsi, Adidas, Puma, etc...they all will like to hire Christiano Ronaldo for an advertisement and not a team of scientists/soldiers who are working for us. Why? Because we our responsible for it. We will go and buy a Levi's jeans , just because Messi has signed on it , but we won't go and buy it if some unknown army man signed on it...
-players do represent the nation, but so do the soldiers and scientists. its the limelight, fame and glamour that get them hefty cheques and not their work for mankind. Entertainment is not everything in life. Companies, governments and other associations should raise their levels above this shallow approach....
