Forum Post: Why call the CEOs out for pay when college football coaches make more?

It's a fact, CEOs make a ton of money. They have a ton of responsibility. They do earn their pay.

However, most of the 99% seem to think higher education is a godsend, and that teachers are underpaid.

Why is no one crying foul that many college coaches make more than all the faculty combined at many institutions? They don't add anything academic to the school, which has a goal to "educate" people.

actually i agree with only part of your post most coaches make 100k they also bring in alot of money to the schools which at least in my day helped keep cost down for every one and if you think any of the college coaches dont teach these young men an women anything then you are wrong! they possibly teach a far greater lesson ... teamwork charity how to deal with losses an above all hard work

I learned about teamwork, charity, and how to deal with loss as a child. Glad we have 20-somethings that need this from an ass-slapping adult who is overpaid.

I’m afraid that class warfare is inevitable. This plutocratic society has gone too far in exploiting and taking unfair advantage of the middle class and the middle class are finally getting wise to it.

I don't think they should make that much, but it's not true that CEOs "earn their pay".

[-] 1 points by Materia (17) 3 years ago

Why don't they? They have jobs with responsibilities of entire corporations. Are you an idiot?

[-] 1 points by GammaPoint (400) from Oakland, CA 3 years ago

No, are you?

Please use English, I sure as fuck hope you don't have a degree. College footballs coaches do nothing to shape the youth of an academic institution. They coach football. Anyone can do that. CEOs have to ensure the financial success of sometimes a ridiculously large corporation. You are a moron and a half, jesus.

The finances of a company are actually the responsibility of the CFO.

[-] 1 points by Materia (17) 3 years ago

The overall wealth of the company ultimately relies on the CEO. The CFO answers to the CEO. If a board deems shit's going downhill, usually the CEO gets the ax, not the CEO.

I don't know about you, but I rent mine. If I don't pay the property taxes, they will come with guns and put me out.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 3 years ago

so you are also more taxed by rent than the government

most of the top administrators at colleges are crooks but they were never bailed out with taxpayer money
