  1. No I don’t think it is not too much money. Because they can earn money equally or more over. They have commercial value. Because of they earn much money fans yearn for their life and love them. And they train practice their skills to maintain their money. So I think it is proper!

  2. I think it is okay to professional athletes earn very high salaries. First, soccer player like Ronaldo try his best to get high level player at young age. Second, they try hard and use good skills to win the game. That’s why they have a lot of fans and able to get a lot of money.

I thnk profressional athlete’s high salaries are maderate. because they exercise hard to be the number 1 player in their sports session. also usually in their salaries, the advertiesement fee is included. in nowdays many supet sports stars appear in advertisement. because many peole love their sports and love them. so I think advertisement rates are reward of sports star’s effort. also almost of the sports star exercise very hard everyday for their competement. for example the Olypmic games are held once a four years. almost sports stars exercise hard and put many time in toe exercise for their short game.It will be very good when sports stars win the game or get gold medal but it’s very difficult to be number 1 in the game . so I think high salaries are approproiate for some great sports stars.

    and before he get that payment, he competed soccer skill with other players from his youth.
    Finally, he overed all players and became one of best players in the earth. Why that payment is exccessive?
