The fact is these guys get WAY too much admiration from the general public for a high skillset that really isn't all that profound or inspiring when you think about it.

Kids should look up to the hard work that some pro athletes put in but intellectually, most of these guys behind the scenes represent the skewed nature of value society places on petty bullshit when it boils down to it.
The average pro athlete isn't dumber than the average person. If you exclusively compare them to college graduates they're behind but generally an NFL RB isn't dumber than the guy mowing the lawn. They might even be smarter than the average person.
