Money spent on sports?

Posted 10 November 2010 - 11:55 AM

To start, I love all sports. My favorits are UFC, Soccer, and Football. I'd probably be in MMA by now if I had the your life becomes pleasing people and constant training mindset but I don't. Just wondering though, is it just me or are wasting tons of money on sports, then again, entertainment period.

I hate how you watch TV to here Brad Pitt makes 5 million dollars a year for doing what toddlers do to get what they want. I honestly would'nt hate the idea so much if I didn't have to deal with a police officer giving me a ticket because my car was on the white parking line which is likly because he needed to find something to collect a managable base pay. Either way, it's more than that, I don't get why people who have jobs helping people who are very much needed make hundred thousands less than people paid to look pretty.

My guess of how this happened is simple, once peoples worry of neccesity went away, comfort came up which led to luxury ( which I also think revolved around Rome back then. Rome could be why things are like this..) and along that, wasted money on luxuries and placing luxury at the height of our civilizations took over. Just a thought, not saying it's right.

All I'm saying is It's already hard to get jobs. It doesn't help knowing some jackass idiot makes money for existing when you keep peoples water flowing, houses warm, or even their electricity on. No wonder main companies are being disbanded, most of the economies money belongs to people who buy things they don't need and then they wonder why people rob em.

On a side note, why the HELL were 20% of kids tricker treating as snookie from Jersey Shore. Again, why are they even famous, they're morons who are hated by their own culture? Nough Said

For the impatient, the TL;DR version:

  • I might spend too much money on entertainment.
  • Some people make way more money than I do doing seemingly easier jobs.
  • When people have more money than they need, they buy shit they don't need.
  • I find the subjective theory of value frustrating.
  • It's a Jersey thing.

I find it interesting that you list UFC first. I don't consider this a sport. Certainly it's a physical medium performed for entertainment, but int my opinion it's still not a sport.

It's their money. I could give a shit if they are spending it on guns, dope, booze, hookers, pornography, donations to their favorite charities, donations to their favorite political party, Halloween costumes, the homeless, some dude from Miami, xmas gifts for their family... any amount of concern from myself regarding their personal financial transactions isn't going to change a thing, except waisting my time.

I've never seen a toddler make a film like FightClub or Snatch, but whatever. If it bothers you so much, then don't watch TV.

What does watching Brad Pitt's financial success have to do with you getting tickets for failing to control (or park?) your vehicle? Maybe you should adhere to the violation, take it more seriously, & take actions to prevent further violations, rather than filling your time with celebrity statuses.

Hrm, I thought you were talking about sports....

& it wasn't hard to get jobs when? I'm in my mid 30's & I've never seen a time when unemployment wasn't an issue. The way I see it, you have three types of people. Those whom want to work & earn a living, those whom want to work an easy job & skate by, & those whom want a handout. There always has been, & always will be unemployment. If our economy was still based on the barter system, most American's would starve.

It's a mater of need vs what someone is willing to spend. I'll venture to bet $5 that you own both a cellphone & cable television. You can live without either of these things.

End zone opposite of the dog pound, 20th row. I'll throw on one of my DreamInCode t's. I won't make the mistake of waring (or cheering) for the Jets. Last time I did that I got drinks thrown at me. Which ... ironically hit other Browns fans.
