Sports and games are meant for recreation and physical fitness. But in today's world sports persons are labelled as professionals and they get paid heavily. Huge money is thrust into this sports and games activities while many go hungry and shelter less in the world.How can sports and games be professions?

There are two kinds of Sports when it comes to that! People can choose which way they want it.

Glorifying sports persons and the sports is responsible for taking it as profession.Youth find it a shortcut not only to stardom but also to a rich life. Youngsters who cannot contribute to the society and thereby earn their livelihood in the ways others do, resort to this field. What is the contribution of sports to the society? Professions are created to serve humanity. What service these sports persons as professionals do to the society? Their records at the national or international level are empty rhetoric which are nothing but paper records with no benefit to the society in any way. The beneficiaries are sports persons themselves and not the society. The money spent on these activities are a terrible splurging costing the people dearly. A responsible society should know its priority.

"sports persons" lol!! Well you're clearly not a fan of watching sports. HOWEVER the majority in our country are sport fans, therefore why we have Pro sport teams(the best of the best players in their sport) to ENTERTAIN us. The reason these professional "sports persons" are paid A LOT of money is because we living in a FREE country, choose to pay the high ticket prices to watch our teams play. When a team is doing poorly for an extended period of time though, the ticket prices and salaries for those professional players on that team tend to go down...supply and demand.

With your Communist minded logic, as a typical compassionate liberal who is a killer of all things FUN in our great country, actually have NO CLUE that your "feelings" are the same as the leaders of the USSR...forcing their citizens back then into lines of work(for the GOOD of society/their Communist country) based on the USSR's mandated government test results of all their citizens to see where THEY as their country's "leaders" thought their citizens would fit in best in their COMMUNIST country....thus back then their citizenry being forced into working at jobs that the USSR government deemed they should work at!!!!
As well as the USSR government FORCING those they deemed to have superior athletic abilities, to be taken from their families at a young age to be trained year round by the USSR's sport trainers to eventually compete in the Olympic Games, to prove how STRONG AND POWERFUL they were as a Communist country.

Your asinine ideology ONLY makes SENSE to stoners, "progressives", layabouts, Anti-fa and today's lifer elderly Democrat politicians who BTW all are now 1%ers themselves being LIFER politicians as their career choice, who supposedly for DECADES in office were/are still fighting on behalf of the poor and needy in their districts and states as they as your representatives live like KINGS and QUEENS off of the tax payers...eh yet with them still being able to convince you all to keep voting for them to being reliant on the GOVERNMENT...other people's hard earned money!!!

Everything related with entertainment is about being entertained - sports and games are the same. They are being paid to do that professionally - meaning, they have to focus on that a lot more than everyone else. They have to put more than average dedication to it. Is the money being paid outrageous? Yup, no doubt about that. The amount of money that are given to such things is beyond ridiculous in my opinion, but that doesn't mean what they do stops being a profession.

As already pointed out sports and games are recreational activities meant to improve physical fitness. Only a misguided society which wants entertainment more than anything else will convert even sports into entertainment!
The views expressed are not communist ideology but a humanistic view. The so called free society cannot understand this basic philosophy.
Whether it is a communist country or a democratic dispensation, training kids to become great athletes in future is a terrible wrong doing. Physical fitness needs only simple exercises and not sophisticated gadgets and play area. Let us spend the hard earned money gainfully and let us not waste it in the so called entertainment

Your ideology is that of the leaders/dictators of N. Korea, Iran etc....We live a big world pal, with many countries in this world having dictators who have the same exact beliefs as you do, so just emigrate to those countries, INSTEAD of you trying to change the USA into your vision of how you think we all should live our lives in a FREE country.
It's really this simple pal, if you as a USA citizen do not like/agree with all this entertainment stuff(lol) in our great country, just simply migrate to a country that has your same beliefs of how YOU want to live your life, INSTEAD of you complaining about the USA and wanting to change the USA/America into YOUR f'd up vision/version of an AmeriKa you want to live in.

Both sets of my grandparents were LEGAL immigrants, where all 4 left their home country's of Sicily and Ireland as teenagers to take the long journey(each one ALONE on that boat) to come to the USA for a better future life than the life they were living as teenagers in Sicily and Ireland back then.....to ASSIMILATE as AMERICANS and to raise their future children as AMERICANS as well, not coming to our great country to change our great country, as you liberals want to...JUST LEAVE already if you don't like living in our great country.

All the countries of the world are interdependent. No country can survive without other countries' cooperation. Let us love all people.My opinions do not have anything to do with America. You are thinking as if you are the sole representative of America. Let common sense prevail over the parochial mindset of people like you. Have some broad minded thinking and think of other people also as contributors to world prosperity and well being.Let us live a life of civilised human beings

Nope wrong, not ALL the countries of the world are interdependent on each other, though you as a globalist/socialist would like to think so in your unicorn and rainbow mindset.
It's pretty simple......there has and always will be the 'good guy' country's and the 'bad guy' country's in this world, with the 'bad guy' country's always wanting to ultimately have complete CONTROL over the 'good guy' free countries in our world ala Hitler, ISIS and Dr. Evil to RULE THE WORLD(lol).

Even though your idealism is commendable, it's just not how the real world works pal....because unfortunately no matter what century one lives in, there always has been and always will be evil f'd up people in this world, where no amount of reasoning or being "tolerant of all" will ever change their f'd up mindsets.

Eh you as a compassionate liberal minded person in the 21st century, probably think that you and your liberal ilk of today could have reasoned with Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Lenin , Pontius Pilate etc. etc. while sharing a cup of Starbucks coffee together to convince them all to not be so evil lol!!!

The reality may be bitter.But we, as civilized societies, should move towards idealism. That should be the goal of any progressive society. Let us not worry much about the past. We never learn lessons from the past and make the same mistake again and again. That is a tragedy.That shows that we don't evolve properly. We must be able make healthy,good decisions based on reality. Pessimism will take us nowhere. The present should be the foundation on which we have to build our future

Please give examples for good guy countries and bad guy countries.Countries as a whole cannot be branded that way.In every country there will be good people as well as bad people. In my opinion most countries are ruled by dishonest people who capture power by dishonest means. They are not the ideal representatives of the countries' people. As long as people are not civilized enough, the scenario will remain so. Social movements are needed to change societies for the better.
