A Mackem is a person from Sunderland. Someone who would never call themselves a Geordie (a person born within spitting distance of the River Tyne, which flows through Newcastle).

A person from Manchester would never say there are from near Liverpool, to give another example.

They are wayyy too overpaid then... £100k to run and kick...
Ok Ive had this argument before and disproved the person

it's simple think of football clubs as companies and the players as employees the players generate a certain amount of revenue they are then paid for that revenue they generated now they cant be overpayed cuz if they were the clubs would be making losses, moreover there is about 40%income tax so the more they get payed the more tax they pay this tax is used to improve the company

so there is no way they are overpayed or else football clubs would be making losses and as business men they want to optamise profit

moreover football require way more skills and hard work than u think

I'd argue that they're overpayed in the sense that they're payed disproportionately more than people who do other sports requiring a skill level. I suppose the whole problem there is supply and demand rather than the clubs giving the players more than they're able to.
Becoming a professional footballer does require lots of skill and hard work but there are lots of other sports with many people who work as hard or harder* than the majority of professional footballers and don't get payed anywhere near as much.

The bottom line being: their pay is justified by public demand but not by skill (as compared with other sports)

*I justify the use of saying that they work harder as there are lots of professional footballers (in the region of 4000 by a quick browse on the interwebs) which means that there are more at lower skill levels who are still able to become professional as compared with a sport like cricket (400) - which I would call a moderately comparable sport in terms of team size. I assume that the cricket players are the best in the UK and therefore comparable to the best 400 football players meaning that, for their sport, more football players at a lower relative skill level are payed

The main point I was tryna make is that the pay is justifiable by the revenue they generate

The comparison you’re missing is the number of people that play football overall, compared to the number of people who play cricket overall.

The best 4,000 football players in the UK will be a smaller percentage of the overall than the best 400 cricketers against the overall number of players.

Football is far more widely played both in the UK and across the world as a whole than any other sport, so is then far more competitive to get to the top level.
