To make a sport BETTER

It seems that every time a player gets a huge chunk of contract, they tend to abuse it by not playing very hard as to save their bodies for a super long career. And now they are fighting the owners for more money and rightfully so. But i have a suggestion that could stop the whining and lack of competetive spirit. Many have thought about it and it should be as follows.Every player is paid a league maximum of say 600,000, or less for non starters garunteed. Then all pay is performance based. If they make the playoffs then the whole team gets a good chunk of cash as would they if they won the superbowl and or championship. Now the owners would be making a killing. So install a tax penalty to where the team could fund itself plus make money but the tax would be spread through the community or nation (which would help the recession that we find ourselves in). It could be something of that nature. Everyone would say that they wont play for that kind of pay,well i beg to differ. How many seniors in college just played their last game this year? They would play their hearts out to just play in the NFL/NBA/MLB, because its the sport they grew to love and a bonus to get paid for doing just that. It would stop a player from making 30 million a year that had a mediocre season. It would get it back to REAL sport action. Imagine the ALL-Pro/ALL-Star game if it meant that you win an extra million dollars or so. They wouldnt go there for the show and albeit they wont opt out of the honorable game that they have got choosen for. Thats an honor to get voted in. But all in all it would bring back the real meaning of sports because if you got in for the money in the first place then become a banker. And if the flashy players dont like it well theres the door.
