    I thought their salaries are too high. But i think this salsries are appropriate now. Because players payed high salaries have good balance and power more than another players. So i think high salary is not unfair, because this is their ability.

      I agree that the top players have something other players don’t have. But if salaries are too high, poorer teams will never have the chance to get a top player. What do you think? Is this unfair?

      • YoungJun02

        I see this unfair situation is play point too.

      Almost players started because they love soccer. But if players get more and more money, there nature mind will get dissapere because of money.

        I agree too. if sararies are high they will purpose changes

    I think that is not too high. Because, for example, Cristiano Ronaldo have great marketing power. Ronaldo’s uniform is the one of the best selling and that money exceed Ronaldo’s weekly pay.

      That’s a good point! Top players like Ronaldo are not just playing, they are selling merchandise like jerseys. This makes companies a lot of money, too. Players like Ronaldo should get a big part of this money.

      I agree your opinion. Because i have real madrid jersey. And then i saw many of my friends have real madrid ronaldo’s jersey.

    • YoungJun02

      I agree. player’s persnal ability is important too.

  3. MyeongWoo02

    I don’t think so. Because their marketing effect is very amazing and great. For example their uniforms sales volume are highier than other normal players. And then they can attract many sponsors.

    • KwangSik02

      You’re opinion is similar to me. Interesting lol

      • KwangSik02
        22 November 2016 at 11:14

        And then can you explain any other example of amazing marketing effect?

      • MyeongWoo02
        22 November 2016 at 11:21

        For example, one of the marketing effects is ticket sales goes up. Because best players can attract many fans.

        That’s right! Players not only have to play well, they also have to bring in fans to watch the games — a very important source of income (money).

    • SeoYeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:16

      Your opinion is very interesting. Marketing effect is very good. If company earn lots of money. Company should give money and it’s part of salaries.

    • DongHa02
      22 November 2016 at 11:27

      good opinion i agree what you say!

    • Heeyeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:32

      Your opinion that game’s marketing effect and uniforms price is very interesting opinion. I agree that.

    I think there salaries are too high. Rich teams wants good players so there salaries are going higher. Then poor teams cant buy good players and cant win a game. Also players get too much money that they cant even spend during life. So I think there salaries would get lower

    • YoungJun02
      22 November 2016 at 11:13

      Your opinion is different my opinion, so ot it interesting.

    • Eunji02
      22 November 2016 at 11:31

      I agree wholeheartedly. they earn too much money. That is unnecesarry and waste.

    • WonJin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:32

      You think that their salaries too high. My opinion is different. Higher salaries motivate athletes after time. I think other poor athletes same result πŸ™‚

  5. Heeyeon02
    22 November 2016 at 11:03

    I think professional athletes’ salaries are not too high. Because they earn lots of money as game’s polularity is high. And they practice hard to be now. So their salaries are the product of their hard work.

      That’s true. These players have a special gift that they developed to a very high level. Their playing entertains and inspires us. Maybe they should be paid very well because of this.

    • YoungJun02
      22 November 2016 at 11:22

      Plus, athlete’s life is so little, so they earn money in 20-40.

    • TaeGyu02
      22 November 2016 at 11:23

      I agree to your oppinion too. But players pay is getting high more and more. So I think there pay would have a little limit.

    • Eunji02
      22 November 2016 at 11:25

      I agree with you up to point. but i think their effort is not enough than other job.

  6. JeeSoo02
    22 November 2016 at 11:04

    I think that their salaries are not too high. Because they practice very hard since they were young. Also their salaries were paid in proportion to their abilities.

    • ChaeWon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:16

      I think so. They recieve their money according to their ability or skills.

    • YoungJun02
      22 November 2016 at 11:26

      Right. Although some players receive salaries less than star players, because their ability is different.

    • Heeyeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:28

      I agree that. They are acknowledged for their effort by their salaries.

    • MyeongWoo02
      22 November 2016 at 11:31

      I agree your opinion. Because their effort to climb best palyer is very hardworking. Then their rewards are reasonable.

    • TaeGyu02
      22 November 2016 at 11:32

      I think so too. But if they get more and more high pay, there nature mind that when they firtst stared soccer will dissapear.

  7. WonJin02
    22 November 2016 at 11:04

    I think their earn is not too high. Because consider their effort,job and passion, that is not overprice. Also they more effort.

    • SeoYeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:11

      I think same. Their salaries is result of their effort. But I think fassion is not invlove for salaries. Because it is not define with money.

    • YoungJun02
      22 November 2016 at 11:27

      I agree. Atletes efforts are must consider.

    • HeeJin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:31

      You have same opinion with me. High paid athletes are do how much they paid. And that results are good.

  8. SeoYeon02
    22 November 2016 at 11:04

    I think professional atheletes didn’t earn too much salaries. Because they practise hard from when they was young. And as they practice they have good reault. So I think their salaries are proof of their effort.

    • WonJin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:20

      I agree your opinion. Maybe their effort young. Consider their young’s time and today effort ,high salaries is right. And in other side, promote advertise that athletics.

    • ChaeWon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:24

      I agree your opinion. Players pratice very hardly to achieve their position. So the salaries is proof their effort.

  9. Eunji02
    22 November 2016 at 11:04

    I think professional atheletes earn too high salaries. because many people invest their game, so they can earn high salaries, not their own effort. Of course, they practice a lot of time and put in effort but that is not.

      22 November 2016 at 11:16

      Do you mean that a team’s success is because of more than just a star player, but the star player is getting too much of the reward?

    • SeoYeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:20

      I disagree with your idea. people like their play because their play is good. Reason for their play are good is they effort hard.

    • Heeyeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:25

      You say that professional athletes’ salaries are too high, but you agree their hard work and game’s popularity.

  10. HeeJin02
    22 November 2016 at 11:05

    No, i think it’s not high. Because their level of contribution on team is so high. They are core of team’s championship. And they do how much they are paid.

    • ChaeWon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:11

      I think so . I agree the last sentence. When They recieve their salaries, they do their best in play.

    • SeoYeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:33

      I think simillar with youe idea. Professional athletes abillity make diffrence. It is point we shold give many moneny

  11. DongHa02
    22 November 2016 at 11:05

    I don’t think so. because they earn money as a player ability. So good player feel annoyed they may quiet the player. and they sometime donate money for sick,poor people. So I think high salary is fair.

    • Teacher

      22 November 2016 at 11:18

      I suppose that’s true. Players are not using their huge salaries only for themselves. Many of them are probably helping the poor or even the young soccer players of the future.

    • KwangSik02
      22 November 2016 at 11:18

      Yeah Ronaldo donate a lot of money for sick children. Of course, other players do that.

  12. ChaeWon02
    22 November 2016 at 11:05

    I think their salaries are not too high. Becuase they make an effort very hardly for their play. And they spend lots of money to improve their skills. So i think their salaries are appropriate.

    • WonJin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:27

      Wow you also same my opinion. Their result not appear nowtime. They effort young time , and now. Like entertainment apprentice πŸ™‚ also we did. Their earn is proper.

    • HeeJin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:27

      I think so too. High pay is the reward of their effort to improve their ability and best play. So they have qualification of high pay.

  13. Yujin02
    22 November 2016 at 11:10

    I think their salaries are not too high. It’s because they always work hard like exercise and managing they’re menu for their body prices. Also when players make a good play, they have effective promotions like to promote their team or their country or something else. And they earn their money for this way for limited period when they’re healthy and good players.

    • JeeSoo02
      22 November 2016 at 11:17

      I agree with your opinion. They spend money to manage their condition and poor people because their salaries are not too high. I think it is necessary.

  14. Narae02
    22 November 2016 at 11:11

    I don’t know much about sports, but i think their salaries are too high. Because it is too high compared to other occupations, especially the general athletes. Of course we must acknowledge their efforts and their pains. However other athletes work hard and have troubles. So i think professional athletes’ salaries should be slightly higher than those of other players.

      Interesting argument! I remember reading that the lowest-paid soccer player is paid about the same as the highest-paid doctor. What does everyone think about that?

      • Narae02
        22 November 2016 at 11:27

        I think that is unfair.Because they each make a lot of effort in each their respective fields.

    • JaeHee02
      22 November 2016 at 11:24

      yes, I agree that their salaries are too higher than other occupations, of course they tried that much

    • SeoYeon02
      22 November 2016 at 11:28

      Your idea is diffirent with me. But I can agree with porpotion. Genernal athletes also work hard. But result is bad they can’t earn many money. I also think it’s little unfair.

  15. Heesu02
    22 November 2016 at 11:14

    I think misbecome their salarie are too high.
    They until victory do many effort but other players do many effort or practice too. The score different because that salarie are high not fair.

    • Teacher

      22 November 2016 at 11:30

      So, you think their high salaries are inappropriate? You have a good point, but maybe the high salaries of the top players will motivate the lower-level players to try harder, don’t you think?

  16. JaeHee02
    22 November 2016 at 11:17

    I think best players are entitled to get high salaries. Because they spent their life for sports for a long time, then their efforts made team best and got country’s fame. If there is no big difference of salaries between best player and nomarl player, many players may not do thier best.

    • Teacher

      22 November 2016 at 11:22

      True. If there is no financial incentive to be the best, players may not do their best.

    • HeeJin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:23

      I agree that there are no difference on salaries it makes problem. Sometimes difference of salaries are driving force of improve their ability.

    • JeeSoo02
      22 November 2016 at 11:25

      I think so. Because famous athletes have big effect to others.

    • Yujin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:27

      I agree with you opnion ‘difference of salaries can make best players’ . I didn’t think of this way but I think it’s very good point .

    • Yujin02
      22 November 2016 at 11:27

      I agree with your opnion ‘difference of salaries can make best players’ . I didn’t think of this way but I think it’s very good point .

      Yeah that is true. That’s the advantage of capitalism. No pain No gain πŸ™‚

    • Narae02
      22 November 2016 at 11:35

      Your argument is almost true. But i think big difference of salaries between best player and normal player, many players may lose their passions. Because the normal players account for more than half of the team.
