but don't you think its strange that clubs pay millions of pounds to footballers to play football (a sport that is in all honesty 20 odd men kicking a football around a pitch ).

Please express your thoughts .

It's justified. Particularly the more talented footballers more than earn their wage back for the club.

Of course, but what can you do. Ultimately it's the billionaire owners that are giving away their money to said footballers, it's not like it's the taxpayer at least

They can afford to because it's so popular.

It's a huge, entertaining industry so they can. Baseball and American football players can earn way more than footballers.

You can say the same about golf that it is just hitting a ball with a stick.

Don't get me wrong i love sport but there must be a point when the figures they earn start getting ludicrous.

Footballers for example, only in the top leagues at the top teams do they get huge salaries. In lower leagues (League 1 and 2) they can get paid a few hundred pounds a week.

It's not a secure occupation though, realistically they'd only get paid high amounts for a decade or slightly more. A lot of players get a lot of income from sponsors as well but they don't last.

There is a lot of talent in football compared to other sports, and as long as people keep watching it then it will continue to be this way
