Are sports atheletes overpaid? Well yea..
My point, which it appears you missed entirely, was that of all the sports, hockey seems to be the one the players play for the love of the game.
Baseball players make the 2nd highest salaries, and whine the loudest. Granted they have alot of games, but their sport is the least excercise intensive.
Football players have maybe the 2nd most physical job out of the four, followed closely by basketball. They are always in trouble for some idiotic thing they are doing. I used to be a die hard Cowboys fan, but now have lost interest.
Basketball, has the highest salaries and they are in trouble too. Watch TV sometime, you'll see more trouble from football and basketball players than all the other sports combined.
Hockey. They have the most physical sport in the US, make the 2nd worse salary, and whine the least. They play for the love of the game, the money is just a pleasant bonus. You can tell the intensity of how much they love the game, in every game.
