Re: Tony in Top 50 Athletes

I couldn't get past page 2. I really don't think it matters as I'm not in their league anyway. All sports that collect sponsor money is paid by the sales from the the public. We decide what we buy but that ends our part in the whole money thing. It han't always been Gasillion salaries per year as it is now. I remember Frank Gifford saying that he was thrilled when he made $10,000 a year because he didn't have to find a job that winter to keep the family afloat. Does all the money that is spent on sports bother me? Not really. The person has to earn it and they do sacrifice part of their lives to do just that. Just ask their spouse and children how that works. Now do I think they deserve those big bucks. Well that is the biggest question of all. And I reply I haven't a clue as to what they deserve.

Interesting read. Thanks for the link. My favorite number is 29 so loved seeing Tony in that position. No surprises really on the list.

Ahead of Jimmie Johnson :P .

But no real surprises on the list. Except I thought after last year with Ford stepping in that Carl Edwards would be on it.

Wasn't the article about money [b]earned,[b] not money paid to you because you're there? ;)
