How Long Does It Take An Athlete To Make $100,000?

Obviously a lot of preparation goes into being an athlete, but let’s ignore all of that and focus on the gory numbers.

The WSJ has published this delightful chart in which we learn that Mr. Ben Roethlisberger makes $100,000 every 4 snaps. If I were in a position to sack Mr. Roethlisberger I would keep this in mind, you know, for schadenfreude purposes. “Whoops, there goes $25,000.”

Alex Rodriguez, MLB 6 pitches
Ben Roethlisberger, NFL* 4 snaps
