Comparing how MLB players are paid vs Moto or supercorss.

All this, "today's riders are spoiled" bullshit doesn't pan out..

These MLB guys don't risk their necks week in and week out, but are better paid, and seem to earn more respect.

It just show's how far that we are lagging behind from other sports.

Some of those MLB fat bastards are sorry excuses for professional athletes.

They have so little risk compared to other sports.

The fans pay the bills. We have nowhere near the fans or as many events per year as stick and ball sports, therefore our boys get F'ed when it comes to making the kinda money that other pro athletes make.

GuyB.

Please delete this. These guy's are just to hard core to take a realistic look at two different sports.


What was I thinking?

But yet the fan base is there, the sponsorship dollars are there and the money is there to support the players. Motocross doesnt have anywhere near the following of baseball or the other big sports so your comparison isnt correct.

I agree that in a perfect world pro riders would be paid millions of dollars, but the facts are the industry cant support it.

And to say that based on danger alone riders should be paid more doesnt make sense either, are highly paid executives in more danger than the plebs they send out to do all the dirty work?? It's just not how it works in any industry unfortunately.

You ever been plunked in the ribs by a 90+ MPH fastball? You're kidding yourself if you think MOST baseball are not extremel talented athletes. You can not really compare them as there are over 3 MILLION kids alone playing youth ball. I agree that its a disgrace what pro riders get paid in prize money

Just a question, if you have you know it hurts like hell. No sir, some high schoolers and college kids are throwing in the mid-90's. I love and have played most all sports but suck at the one I love the most----mx---figures.

Motorcorss doesn't have even 1% of the revenue that baseball generates. They have 162 games a year, with an avg attendance of 20k people. Not to mention TV revenues that each team gets. That's the difference. Why do NASCAR drivers make 20 mill a season for driving in circles protected by a cage? Because they have the revenue streams to allow it. Motocross doesn't
