Money money money

Imagine you're a top golfer, big shiny trophies in the cabinet, sponsors, houses, numerous bank accounts all loaded with cash. Just rewards for being the best, for all of those sacrifices, years of dedication and practise.

You're offered a couple of million appearance fee, for a tournament down-under. Great. I'll buy another pad or another jet. Hang on. Half the fee is being paid by the ordinary tax payer. Who already pay proportionally more tax than their richer buddies. How can you defend this?

It's not just in golf. Australians are stumping up a 20 million race fee to a billionaire motor racing mogul. If I were an Aussie citizen, I'd rather give it up to the golfer.

But to me they are both morally bankrupt.
