The debate over salaries for professional athletes is never ending. It all comes down to this: they make the big money because of several factors, but the biggest reason is the fan base supports it by buying season tickets, logo merchandise, watching the games and generating advertising revenue. If the players can score a big contract, and have a 6 figure base salary for everyone, then more power to them. It is indeed no different than actors making millions for starring in a movie. Plus the players are taking a big risk with their bodies and many pay a bigger price later in life with pain and so forth.

And....a big salute to the Packers! I knew they were going to win the Super Bowl and never doubted it.
