I suppose with such high moral fibre you would turn it down?


Personally to have Sean as our coach it is worth it. His contract takes zero away from the team.

That is chump change when compared to corporate executives. The top 100 ALL get paid more than twice what Payton receives.

#1 GOOG GOOGLE INC Eric E. Schmidt 2011 $100,980,262
#2 ORCL ORACLE CORP Lawrence J. Ellison 2012 $96,160,696
#3 CBS CBS CORP Leslie Moonves 2011 $69,900,677
#4 GBL GAMCO INVESTORS INC Mario J. Gabelli 2011 $61,693,390
#5 KOS KOSMOS ENERGY LTD Brian F. Maxted 2011 $57,553,715
#6 CACC CREDIT ACCEPTANCE CORP Brett A. Roberts 2012 $54,282,500

...

#99 GD GENERAL DYNAMICS CORP Jay L. Johnson 2012 $18,010,762
#100 PPG PPG INDUSTRIES INC C. E. Bunch 2012 $17,891,543

I would say that head coaches are easily worth the kind of money they make.

Top 100

If a guy can make my company 20 million/year, I have no problem paying him 10 million/year if he's the best qualified person to do so.

Re: Saints coach Sean Payton is highest-paid in U.S. sports

When it comes to executive Management, salary does not not equate to a days work @x$/hour.

For Executive Management, Salary is native to that persons market value in comparison to his peers based on his impact on revenue and profitability. The wash is that if they do not meet increased revenue/profitability expectations they are quickly replaced. Or the Success of the Company.

Sean Payton brought a Super Bowl to the land of have not's, and I expect will do this again. Sean Payton's salary pales in relation to the money put into Benson's coffers for winning a SB but it is very relative.
