If the olympics are for amateur athletes how can these people be earning so much? That clearly makes them professionals and therefore not eligible to participate! Clearly cheating!!!

Fozzie1 remember the Dream Team? That was the first Olympics that professionals could compete. For most of the sports it's OK (even volleyball) but the soccer and basketball teams have gotten ridiculous.
