Just thought you would appreciate this...

There seems to be an inordinate interest in the NBA--Simmons might need to bump up his assertion that there are only 15 of us left--so I thought with my final blog for a little while that I would give you a great website that has compiled all the contracts of the genetically blessed. The woman who maintains it--Patricia--is really good at updating as soon as trades and new signings go down. Kind of like Cott--except the exact opposite. Enjoy the weekend fellas (and Beth)! thejaywhite get some more STD's to add to the repertoire.

Seeing what pro players make just depresses the hell out of me. I make a decent living and consider myself to be a pretty bright guy (contrary to some posts I've left)

But seeing what these guys make...sigh.

I'm out of the office tomorrow and won't have access to this but I'll check in over the weekend.

Sons of KC! VIVA LA REVOLUTION!

Teacher (Carson)- 4 years at Bucknell, 2 years at Temple...not making shit compared to these pro athletes!

Doctor (Corey)- 4 years at LaSalle, PSU Med School...doing residency working 80 hour weeks not making nearly enough!

I should have accepted that $250 a game contract from the Arena 2 league out of college and maybe I could have worked my ass off to the NFL or something. The money would have been great! But who the hell am I foolin?

I'm just glad to be here and part of the "Revolution"

I think thejaywhite is full of shit. Anyone who talks that much about getting pussy prob doesn't get that much pussy. He might be a writer for the NY Times.

let's give our canadian friend the benefit of the doubt as far as numbers. can't say i can bring myself to saying anything about the quality. the numbers just aren't there. i mean, canada only has like 10 million people. unless, like beth, he swings both ways you just cannot have quality hookups with such a limited genetic pool.

oh, i forgot. well then. i have to believe him if he says it on his blog. doesn't he live--admittedly--in some crap hole of a town though? what sweet babies (said like Double Down Trent) would come from all over to a garbage town? i could see coming to a world class Canadian city like Vancouver or Montreal--but i dont think our man-whore lives there.

GM-Carson said...

People complain about MLB players salaries...well they play double the amount of games NBA guys do, but NBA guys get huge contracts. Also, NBA games generally draw less than MLB games with fewer home dates...I just don't understand where in the hell all the money comes from!

mound of venus said...

merchandise, my man. merchandise.

What about the dough actors/actresses get? I know it's a smaller demographic when you talk about the "A" list people truley making bank but still. How long does a movie shoot take 3 months tops? 10 Mil for that kind work or the Friends cast getting a Mil an episode is insane even compared to pro athletes.

i think our header should say "where Vengeance lays its head monday through friday"

viva!

jugdish said...

Its a lot of money for a short amount of time (actors), but on the flip side if they made much smaller salaries all that money would have to go somewhere. The actors are the reason people are tuning in to a show, so if the show generates that much money, they deserve a good chunk of it. I would say the same is true in sports. MJ made about 35 million each of his last two years with the Bulls which is insane, but he generated much more than that.

The Rev said...

Another day of vengeance...

The NBA might be the league where players are paid more not to play than in any other league. It's amazing how many of these stiffs get paid when they are no longer playing for a team. I think Dikembe Mutomo is still getting paid by the Nuggets.

anonymous said...

i heard the Sonics pay off shawn kemp in coke now.

jugdish said...

Didn't Albert Belle stop getting paid like last year in MLB? :)

GM-Carson said...

The NBA salaries are staggering. I enjoy watching the Sixers, but other than that, I just can't get into the NBA. I'm biased for baseball, but football and hockey I believe have more merit than basketball. This has nothing to do with race/ethnicity, I simply am just not the big of a hoops fan.

GM-Carson said...

Joey Belle- there's a dude I haven't thought of in awhile.

Martin VanNostrand said...

He and Mo Vaughn.

jugdish said...

How many teams is Larry Brown getting paid by right now?

anonymous said...

13

The Rev said...

The Sixers... they've done more for the economy of bad players in the last 15 years than any team.

The amount of money they paid Scott Williams alone would feed Sudan for 5 weeks.

Richard Dumas, Shawn Bradley, Sharone Wright... and that's just from the mid 90's.

THE CHAMP. said...

The big thing with the NBA is how young the players are. That's changed a little with the new rules, but still one year out of high school is still young. Hockey players are younger some time, but they don't get as much money. Probably nobody cares in here but a 13 year old soccer player in england was recently signed for about 50 million.

anonymous said...

youre right, nobody cares.

now die.
