Is there any crime that isn't directly harmful that you think should be illegal?

Hence why I dislike sports. You've got football players earning £20,000 a week or even more, and then there's nurses, doctors, police officers and people in the armed forces doing much harder jobs and saving lives who get nowhere near that kind of money.


As cruel as it sounds, it boils down to simple economics. Which doesn't bother itself with what's right/wrong or morals.

That's because there are more doctors, police, nurses, and military people...

A job with many people working at it will logically get paid less than a job that doesn't have as many workers... With more people to go around, you have to pay less money. It's economically impossible to earn that much money if there are a lot of people doing the same job.

If there were as many pro-athletes as there are other workers, then pro-athletes wouldn't get paid as much,.

It's got absolutely nothing to do with that! There are loads of footballers in all different teams, and the footballers in big teams like Man U and Liverpool FC get paid ridiculous money.

Did you really think it was because of how many people there were? Is that why some jobs are minimum wage and some jobs pay huge amounts of money? Just numbers? No, of course not.

Owning a gun or AT LEAST limiting the use/carrying of guns.
That's it really. I don't feel safe when I literally see white ppl walking around with guns in a grocery store like



I bet they have Southern accents so thick I could hear the civil war in them.

Right, so basically anything privately owned can do anything they want and not follow discrimination laws. yeah, makes perfect sense

Seriously... you have TWO DIFFERENT LEAGUES!!!!

You can't possibly expect them to be paid the same. It's not discrimination unless you/re doing it in unisex sports.... now if you pay male atheletes in a unsex team more money... then it's discrimnation.
However, you can't expect two diferent organizations, two different administrations, different teams, different owners, different CEO's.
How is sexism to blame? The NBA doesn't pay WNBA players. The WNBA does... they simply don't have as much money.

How can you discriminate against people if they don't even belong to your organization?

In fact... That's not fair to women. You wanna FORCE a womens league to pay their atheletes as much as a mans league, even if they don't have the money. They CAN'T pay womens sport teams as much, unless people buy more memorabilia, and more people go to their games.

DUH!!! The big teams, get more money... They're more popular. They sell more merchandise, more people love them. They're gonna get paid more.
Another team can't pay as much because they don't have as much money

Well... Then again, I don't see LGBT people as a "class" or a "minority" at all. I see them as a bunch of people who choose to live their lives differently. So I guess you're right.

They're a minority all right.
Almost everyone that isn't white & straight is considered a minority in America.
Also being LGBT isn't a choice. If it was we wouldn't even have LGBT people.

There is absolutely nothing of merit to be had from this discussion.

Locking and closing.

FYI, i'm on about football. Not american football. Actual football! That thing WE invented but you guys called it "soccer" just to be annoying.

There's more than two leagues in football. But no matter what leagure you're in, earning thousands in just one week is not right. I don't really know what american football pays and to be honest I really don't care.
