How much is too much?Posted Monday, August 25, 2008, at 4:30 PM
Peyton Manning will make over $1 million dollars per game this year.
Alex Rodriguez makes (I refuse to use the word 'earns') $28 million this year..... divided by 162 games equals $172,840 per game.
Kobe Bryant made $17,718,750 last year divided by 82 games equals $216,082 per game.
Scott Gomez made..... wait, do you honestly even know who Scott Gomez is? Gomez is a first line center for the NHL (that's National Hockey League) New York Rangers. Gomez made $10,000,000 last year..... divided by 82 games equals $121,951 per game.
Peyton Manning is due to make this year $18,700,000 divided by 16 games equals $1,168,750 per game.
Where do the owners draw the line? How high are the salaries going to continue to climb? What are todays players worth in your mind?
This should strike up good conversation. What do you think?
