If you want an interresting argument in favor of high salaries in sports, you could compare them to all the money made by artists like singers or actors. I know most of you may not agree with that but why should people who have talents in arts whether because they have a great voice or because they have an excellant hear for musical composition or because of their talent in movies should be paid more than those who are the best in their respective sports in the world. Jagr earned 75M$ in his career as of now while Celine Dion certainly earned over 250M$. I don't agree with all these high salaries but I have problems agreeing with those who complain only against the sports professionnals as overpaid human beings. That's just my opinion but I thought it could be useful for your work.
