Sorry but when the **** did making 100k a year become average as of 2010 the average income after tax of a individual was 32,100 how is 1 person making 100k average. The average is about 40-50k a year. That is a vast difference.

If we assume 40 is average than over 30 years they will earn 1.2 million if the hockey player makes 500k for 2 years than makes an average of 60k for 10-15 he is looking at a minimum of 1.6 million and has only worked 12 years to the average joe's 30 years.
