some basic contract math
« on: March 17, 2017, 02:09:52 PM »
here are some basic figures, just to put these nfl [and other sports] mega contacts in perspective...

at $16,000,000. a year, an nfl player would get [not counting playoffs] a cool $1,000,000 a game.

which could work out to approximately, if he plays 50 snaps a game, a paycheck of $20,000 per snap.

Even better the top punter, Dustin Colquitt, is making $49,000+ a punt

The real money is being a mediocre pitcher in the MLB. Easily sign for 12- 15 million (add 10% if you're a lefty) a year once you win 50% of your games and pitch into your late 30's. I don't know what CC Sabathia makes per pitch, but it's in the 10's of thousands for every single time he throws the ball in a game, whether it's right into the batter's wheelhouse who takes the pitch for a moon shot, or a walk, a wild pitch, a waste pitch, or an actual good pitch.
