Yes, it's a disgrace that they earn so much for playing a sport. Governing bodies should cap players earnings and players should be given less power to demand high wages

No, they work hard to be in the peak physical condition, have a relatively short career and people want to see them play. So they deserve all of
the money they get.

There should be a limit to the amount they earn because some players are getting a stupid amount of money, but they are highly skilled so it's understandable why they are paid a lot.

They don't earn too much but we are in danger of turning them into superstars. The money is worth it as long as their feet are kept on the ground.
