然而，也可以说，职业运动员“收入不足”的原因如下:收入不平等;经济学中的一个正常特征。我们知道职业运动员的报酬，因为这些是公开的。许多银行家、首席执行官、公司董事，甚至是特许会计师的薪酬、福利、激励和奖金都非常丰厚。在自由市场中，收入的不平等和不公平是一个不可避免的因素(BROWN & JEWELL, 2006)。职业运动员的报酬来自他的优点、卓越和价值，而不是裙带关系、偏袒或挪用公款。不确定你的职业:职业运动员的职业生涯可以在任何时刻突然结束他在法院或音高或跟踪。他的身体总是有风险的，他的职业或身体受到的伤害能得到赔偿吗?开始Young-Finishing梦想:职业运动员可以玩一辈子,而他已经开始他的比赛在很早的时候,获得这一技能和熟练程度,失去了他的替代保护和有利可图的事业。他失去的机会成本与他得到的报酬相比可能是相当低的，因此报酬很低。
However, it can also be said that the professional athletes are‘underpaid’ because of the following reasons:Income Inequalities; a Normal Feature in Economics.We know about the remunerations of professional athletes because these are published. There are a number of bankers, CEOs, Company directors or even Chartered Accountants who are paid enormously in the shape of remuneration, benefits, incentives and bonuses. In a free market, inequality and unfairness in incomes are an inevitable factor (BROWN & JEWELL, 2006). It is the merit, excellence and worth that make a professional athlete paid- no nepotism or favouritism or monetary embezzlement.Uncertain Career：The career of a professional athlete can end abruptly at any moment when he is on the court or the pitch or the track. There is always the risk to his body and can the money he is paid for compensating the damage caused to his career or body?Starting Young-Finishing Youn： Professional athlete can play for a lifetime whereas he has to start his game at a very early age and has attained this skill and proficiency, losing his alternative secured and lucrative career. The opportunity cost that he lost may be quite low compared to what he is paid for and is thus underpaid.
Uniqueness：A professional is one of the few or even the only of his kind in his field of sportsman skill. As per the economic theory, the price of a unique thing cannot be measured by any economic input. The human factor works here. For instance, an antique and a piece of art can fetch a price, unimaginable by others who do not know their worth. Willing Purchasers and Consumers：Paying to a professional athlete; whether ‘over’ or ‘under’ is an economic transaction under the law where both the seller and purchaser agree to the price and others have no ethical or statutory right to say that the amount was overpaid or underpaid.They Pay for Every Penny They Get Paid：It is often seen that when a professional athlete is in his full form, his contract value is increased for the next season. This indicates that he was underpaid in his earlier deal. Yet, he has rendered his services to the extent as desired by the purchaser; here the team. Does the team not have back its investment in the earlier deal; it would not have increased the remuneration. Mass Entertainers：There are other celebrities in movies that are considered as mass entertainers who are paid huge remuneration and compared to that, it can well be said that professional athletes are ‘underpaid’.Motivators of Young Generation：Accepting them as their icons, young generation gets inspired and learn from the professional athletes.
