I thought it funny that DQ mentioned the sacrifices of family members.

 Yep, must be rough to only be bringing in 450K to 20m a year. Just no.

It’s not just about money. Lot of these guys live somewhere in off season away from families. Working 80-100 hrs a week takes toll on family. Sure they make more money but every time they step on the field it’s a risk.

Absolutely true.  I am not so far from retirement and I always tell my wife when she talks about us working "1 more year", " We can always trim the budget but I cant add another day to my time on this rock".

That being said, they are away from their families for extended periods during the season, and the off-season to hone their skills. What they do can have physical implications for years if not for life.

I have to travel for work and it is a burden no matter the money you bring in.  You can't replace those hours with your children and they grow up so fast.
