The only way it stops is if you stop giving them money. It's a multi billion dollar business that pays it's players millions and millions of dollars because fans are willing to go to games, buy merchandise, watch it on TV, pay for Game Center and Center Ice, buy concessions, etc.
I don't bother getting upset about that ****, and I'm not saying it's the fans fault or anything, it's just how it is with sports. They make a ton of money because we enable them to, and that's fine. I know people say "hell I'd play hockey for a fraction of that!" and then you get out there and realize how much work you have to put in, how hard it is on you, and hey look that other guy is getting paid more/the owners are keeping all of the money, what the hell why shouldn't I get paid more instead of "barely scraping by"?
