Default Re: Ridiculous numbers I heard about the WNBA (salaries)

My dad used to work the docks in Ontario back in the late-50s/early-60s with NHL players from the Maple Leafs (and CFL players too) who needed an off-season job to supplement their income. Off-season jobs used to be very common in pro sports, it has only been recently that salaries have gotten high enough to allow them to rest during the off-season.
