Occupy movement, Payton Manning and the price of professional sports
Let me throw something out at you and see if it sticks.
Patyon Manning just signed a 5-year $96 million contract to play with the Denver Broncos. I'm assuming that put him in the one-percent (in Occupier terms), which brings up a problem I have with the whole Occupy movement.
What separates Payton Manning (and any number of other actors/athletes/radio/TV stars) from some Wall Street fat cat? Money is money and they have it and the other 99% don't.
I don't have an answer to this, I just find it interesting that no one seems to find his salary outrageous. I figure it has something to do with that fact we feel empowered by making his dance for his money. By dance, I mean scramble around on the field without getting his neck broke.
