The issue on overpaid athletes has been a popular discussion topic over the past few years. I will state both the pros and cons concerning the issue. The cons are filled with facts that prove the excessive salary that certain athletes receive every year. For example, the lowest paid Cubs player in 2012 made 417,000$. In other words, the highest paid doctor makes the same salary as the lowest paid baseball player. Also, several football players are paid around $20 million annually. Everyone`s first reaction would be complaining and stating how unfair it is.
