Mick
Practically every civilization has had the equivalent of the Romans' "bread and circuses" to keep the masses happy while the elite pick their pockets clean. I can't see that aliens would be that much different, save that they might be intelligent enough to know the true value of 11 blokes running the length of a field to kick a ball into a net while 11 other blokes try to do the same thing with the same ball in the opposite direction. Three hundred grand a week each plus sponsorship income on top?? Cricket might be unfathomable to the average alien/American but at least it doesn't award unspendable incomes to knuckle-draggers.
Just don't get me started on golf..................... :o

That's because they have a Naughty Step in football. That's where you send babies when they misbehave.  >>:-(

Yes Dave sports salaries have become stupid. Then we have the World Baseball Championship over here & with the exception of one Canadian team they have the gall to call it a World Championship. They sure have invented a lot of ways to steal our money. Mick B.
