Time to preach.

My idol, Thierry D. Henry, was born ‘77. These guys (footballers) give up a regular life and are 247 in the spotlight.

By the rules of balance, it’s only fair they get paid lavishly.

You think the universe isn’t in equilibrium? Fairness prospers because good is better than bad. Good is stronger than evil. Right is superior to wrong.

That idea.

The ‘average’ ones sitting on the bench are still elite footballers.

Mostly because of the broadcasting monopolies, not so much supply and demand.

That’s about the extent of how much they are ‘overpaid’

it's based on demand, thousands of people are willing to pay hundreds of pounds for a ticket, it piles up quick

Sounds like you don't understand capitalism OP. Football is a multi-billion pound business. The money has to go somewhere; either to the owner's pocket or the players

But it does not matter whether average or world class. Footballers don't get incentive wage, their wage based on the turnovers of football clubs produced within a season and what they are willling to pay for each footballer they have or wants to engage. That is unfair, that is crazy, yep, but that is the business and demand in this sport.

People, wherever they work, get paid relative to how much they're worth to the company. Footballers are worth a lot due to the amount of revenue they bring in for their clubs. It's much more than just football nowadays.
