BIG Question Winner

The winner of the BIG Question: Do you think footballers should be paid so much? is Liam Cocker (Year 11).  Liam impressed Mr Holden with his answer giving a clear and justified argument in favour of footballer's salaries.  Liam wins 100 vivos.

Here is Liam's answer:
"Work should be paid in terms of the societal benefit it imports, and in terms of that factor, football is less important than other industries. However, the problem is, the owners of the team make tremendous revenues and as long as that continues, the players are entitled to high salaries. Few attention is paid to the fact that owners make a lot of money."

We are currently sifting through your suggestions for BIG questions.  We had so many good suggestions that we have decided that, as we pose your questions, we will award 100 vivos to the student who suggested the question.  Stay tuned as a new BIG question will be posted shortly.
