Okay I don’t watch hockey, I don’t play it, and I’m not a big fan of it, but from what Ive seen and heard, some changes need to be made. This goes for all other sports too.
Really how do they decide how much a player is worth. I know that they base it on how much the person contributes to the greater promotion of the team to bring more people in. But really is a hockey player really worth $10,000,000. How about this, how about players get paid on a performance basis.
Lets say every point a player gets, they get $1000. An assist $750. and so on. If you work it out an good player would bring home about $500,000. I think that is plenty for a pro sports player.
This way of wages would make the game more exciting because players would have more of an incentive to play harder and try to win. Look at the CFL about half the players actually don’t play football as a fulltime job, they have other jobs. And you know what CFL games are exiting to watch. Hockey has gotten so bad to watch it like watching golf. SO give it some thought maybe its time to change the way players are paid.
