The money exists because people pay to see the sports that they love... if you gave away half of that money to any number of more noble causes you'd see a huge drop off in revenue.

and yes... I understand that you weren't meaning that they should do that literally.

Not really a good battle to pick here ... there are plenty of other more obvious, and more useless, ways of spending money.

If the players dont like they shouldnt play. Someone else would step up for that amount of money asap. Nobody stopped them from becoming doctors or business execs. Why shouldnt the owners decide how much they want to offer players? The make money off jersey sales and endorsements also. F them.

It is a private organization, with private workers (players)

The boss sets the wage, if you won't do it for that wage, you should look elsewhere for employement.

If the boss (owner/ CEO etc) is making huge profits while paying peanuts (percentage wise) to their workers, the workers should think about looking for new work.

If players refuse to play for those wages, no game takes place, no game = no tickets= no money for the owner.

If the owner thinks he can recruit quality replacements that people will pay (the same amount) to watch-- then the boss will likely try to fill the slots. If not, the boss will need to negotiate with the skilled workers an agreed upon wage. They need each other- No owner= no stadium. No players = no revenue.

So- No I don't believe in salary caps. Your qualities and what you bring to the table determine what you make.

When you see 6 and 7 figure incomes, it is easy to say "they make enough" -- but in reality who am I to say you make too much. If I think you charge too much for your product, I will not buy it.
