Model Answer 1:
As a result of constant media attention towards sports players, they have become superstars like the filmstars. They are getting huge salaries and they are the owner of luxurious homes, supercars and sophisticated mobile devices in order to show off their personality as a superstar. Actually, the media is playing a vital role in increasing the popularity of sports stars 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 immensely high. However, scientists and doctors’ salaries are far less than sports players. Numerous people recommend that salaries of sportsmen should be reduced to bring it to an appropriate level.
On the other hand, growing numbers of people believe that sportsmen are playing a vital role to show their skills in front of the camera and no doubt every stunt they perform is real and cannot be hidden from the public. Life-threatening risks are taken by those 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 the aeroplane and takes a huge risk of life only to amuse public. Moreover, they practice numerous times to become experts no matter which game they intend to perform in front of the 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 the record of previous players. For this purpose, they also spend huge money to buy a lot of equipment and they spend many nights and days keep practising. 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.
