As a result of constant media attention towards sports players, they have become super stars like film stars. They are getting huge salaries and they are owner of luxurious homes, super cars and sophisticated mobile devices in order to show off their personality as a super star. Actually media is playing vital role to increase popularity of sports players and to make them popular among people so that they can get huge amounts in shape of salaries.
Some people believe that sports players are receiving excessive big salaries and they have become extravagant compared to doctors and scientists and which is unfair. Therefore, sports players are not contributing or taking any part to provide helpful services in order to give advantages to people. But still their salaries are in immense high level. However, scientists and doctors’ salaries are far less than sports players. Numerous people recommend that salaries of sports man should be reduced to bring it to appropriate level.
On the other hand, growing numbers of people believe that sports men are playing a vital role to show their skills in front of camera and no doubt every stunt they perform is real and cannot be hidden from public. Huge and life threatening risks are taken by sports players and life is in danger while performing a live stunt. For instance, a motorbike rider puts his life in danger and climbs to jump from a mountain to hit his mark. Furthermore, a skydiver jumps from airplane and takes huge risk of life only to amuse public. Moreover, they practice numerous times to become experts no matter which game they intent to perform in front of camera. Therefore practice is likely to be long run or short run but still they give every effort to win an ordinary competition and to show impressive and distinctive performance to break a record of pervious players. For this purpose they also spend huge money to buy a lot of equipment and they spend many nights and days keep practicing. So, they are competent of receiving huge salaries which are uncountable.
In conclusion, I strongly agree that sports stars should be given immense salaries as their constant practice and hardworking is much more than doctors and engineers no matter even if they do not provide any advantage or service to public but still it will be justice to reward them with big salaries, the reason behind this that sometimes they involve in life threatening games.
