    its all very well saying that ppl can be saved by doctors but if their life is boring what is the point in living, football provides entertianment for millions
    But footballer's pay could be capped. I don't think any of them deserve to earn what they do.

    Well not having ever been, it's hard to say - but i think you should prepare yourself for the possibility that there isn't. At least you'll then be pleasantly surprised if there is.

    Yeah, maybe their pay should be reduced, but you have to remember that the average profession of football only lasts about 12 years before retirement(from an earlier post), so they should be payed quite a lot; otherwise they wont have much to live on for the rest of their lives....

    Think about it this way how long does it take a doctor to be a doctor and how long does it take a footballer to be a footballer?

    But not as much as they are. Beckham earn over 3 million a year, I'm sure he will be rather comfortable in his old age.

    And as for lesser footballers - why can't they do what everyone else does when they lose their job - find a new one.

    it probably takes less time to become a world-class doctor than becoming a world-class footballer on average, but this is not important

    I think there's a "slight" difference between training to become a footballer and training to become a doctor.

    And what do you base that on?

    No, they aren't.
    I have friends who's starting pay for their jobs next year is going to be the same as what ill get some 5 years after finishing clinical school - ie some 8 years away from now. By which time i'm sure they'll have progressed far past my pay.
    It's temptimg to pack up and go abroad :|

    Would I be right in saying that most consultants can earn £100 000-200 000 a year, with a bit of private work? If so, they are paid loads compared to teachers or university academics. They're also garunteed a job and can pretty much work anywhere in the world that they want to.

    No, you would be very wrong.
    the average consultant will make some 50k-70k.
