How can you earn $100 million a year playing GOLF.

Of course. If you excluded endorsements Fed would "only" have around 7 or 8 millions.

I'm surprised Woods still makes this kind of cash. He used to be EVERYWHERE, but you don't see him in ads much any more. What gives? Wait...what kind of cash was he making a few years ago?

No. 25 is the one who is most disproportionately paid. What was that again, 2 slams? Great!

the surprise isnt tiger woods earning 100 million.

its the fat slob phil mickelson earning 43.

what i find more amazing is jordan already retired still earning a trunkload of cash

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

Sharapova - I really don't get it. Good but not that good, prettyish but not beautiful although definately has better legs than me. A stone has more humour and personality than she has. She is completely manufactured and they forgot to include personality D'oh.

Scoobs totally agree - i'm not even convinced that golf should be classed as a sport

@ David Beckham making 33 million. MJ has been retired for a few years now and he still comes in 9th on the list!

a lot of ppl criticize sharapova, but really is becks any better.

Laughing my ass off at Arnold Palmer being counted as an athlete.

Beckham making so much is just hilarious too. He's not even in the top 100 footballers in the world and at his peak probably scraped into the top 20.
