Bruce Smith, here you are making $2.2 million a year for playing a sport, one day a week, for 5-6 months a year. How much do you need already?
You make more in one season than us average Americans make over a lifetime. And don't tell me you put your career on the line.
How about the fire department and police department. They put their lives on the line every day, year round. My older brother got burned over 60 percent of his body in a fire accident. All he could receive was $5,500 because he was a volunteer. What's wrong with that picture?
Let's base everybody's salary in sports on performance, not by who you are. The salaries would go down.
