Do you think soldiers should get paid more than footballers?

I think its ridiculas that footballers get paid more than people who fight for our country. How is it fair that people who kick around a ball for entertainment get paid more than people risking their lives for their country. I hope other people agree with me.

I think there is alot more money in sports related entertainment industry lot more financial advertisers promotion etc - soldiers are funded by national taxes - so sadly like all public sector and government posts there will be always higher salaries for sportsmen then soldiers though i see your point

Not at all, soldiers are professionals and have decided on that job. It would be impossible to pay all soldiers what a professional footballer gets! Footballers are paid by private companies and soldiers are paid by the government/tax payer!
This argument is so silly it makes me angry. People that decide to fight for their country do so for pride and patriotism not for monetary gain. I come from a military family and this stupid argument enrages me!!!

Here! here! I agree with you most whole-heartedly. Our soldiers figh for Queen and country and ultimately for us citizens. Footballers, in my eyes are just super-brats.
Of course I think that soldiers should earn more than footballers... and footballers wages should be reduced to less than 10% of what they presently earn. I accept the times we live in (commerciality, fame, et al) but even so reducing it to said amount would still be far more than thy actually deserve. Going on my limited economic knowledge I think soldiers should be on around the £50K bracket .... along with nurses too!!

It would seem the correct thing to happen but unfortunately footballers only get paid a salary which they can generate for the club. So while the work a soldier does is so much more important the country cannot afford to come anywhere near matching the salaries.
