1. I think that male athletes more than female athletes because generally the male sports area draws the bigger fan base. The male sports, not all but some, out draw the female sports. I mean compare attendances, TV money, sponsorship.... etc for the finals in male and female sports and you will see why the male athlete will tend to out draw the female athlete.

2. Again, it goes back to the fan paying top dollar to watch a male athlete throw a 90 MPH fast ball. Or watch a basketball player dunk or shoot a ball through the hoop. Plus, these are entertainment areas. The cops, firefighters.... all put their lives on the line, but it is not entertainment.


3. Male.

I am male.

1. Atheletes are entertainers. People are willing to pay money to buy tickets and watch them perform. People, men and women, would generally rather watch men play ball than women.

2. This is the same reason why athletes earn more than docs. I am willing to pay a lot to a doctor to cast my broken arm, but that is just one customer. Athletes play for full stadiums on a regular basis, and each person sitting down contributes to their salary. The ownership is the real money winner though, when it comes down to it.

No problem, though I don't think a quote from luigi>mario looks like a great source. Just use the idea without the name.
