The head of the Russian basketball Federation Andrei Kirilenko shared thoughts from the salaries in the world of sports, noting that people of other professions can irritate a significant difference in fees.
“I think the situation with the fees athletes will change because next year will be different. The market creates supply for players.
For example, you are a journalist, you come to the representative log of The Times and says: “I Will pay you $ 1 million.”
What normal person would refuse such an offer? No. The same principle works in all other fields — from medicine to politics, and so on.
And in sport. When a team offers the player a contract he will compare it with other incoming offers.
If in this command, the athlete will be able to earn more, of course, he will consider this proposal.
With regard to the relationship of people to big fees athletes in the United States and Russia, in USA this information is in the public domain, can not be said about Russia.
Maybe finding such information in the closed access is the right tactic, because people are annoyed when a doctor or a teacher earn up to 20 000 rubles, and the sportsman — $ 20,000.
Of course, there is a strong dissonance in society. A similar situation occurs in America.
But we must understand that the role of the athletes is not just to play sports, and they represent a character within the entertainment industry.
For example, the game of the same LeBron James comes 2000 spectators. In addition, people are buying broadcast, cable broadcast, subscription to watch games. And so in every state.
In Russia this system is not always the case, and unfortunately, according to statistics, 95% of the clubs suffer losses. Therefore, a mismatch in earnings and spending.
In the NBA most teams still earn money”, — quotes Kirilenko publishing Forbes.ru.
