I think you misunderstood me here a little bit. Where did i indicate this sport is stupid or caveman like ? Generally speaking they don't give a monkey, cos this sport is about danger. Nobody wants to be injured, that's for sure, but they probably worry more about injury putting them out of the next competition. To me they have one of the biggest pair of balls.

" the best athletes in the world are sprinters and marathon runners (the most straining mentally and physically)"

Dude, this statement tells me that you know about sport as much as my 8 year old son, if not less. Sprinters and marathon runners might be the best at what they're doing, but the most straining mentally and physically ? You made my day, I'm still laughing Runners' over all fitness is nothing to be proud of. Poor balance, coordination and flexibility. In general they don't have tools to survive wrestling warm up. Their over all fitness and mentality would not last 2 minutes in wrestling conditioning workouts. On the other hand any national level wrestler will complete a marathon. The only thing marathon runners and sprinters are good is running a marathon and sprinting.

I am not bashing any sport, golf involves a lot of skill too. I just think some athletes deserve a better payments than the other.

Here is a good, funny post on what Red Bull Rampage is : http://www.mtbtreks.com/quick-guide-red-bull-rampage-free-ride-mountain-biking/

These guys don't really give a monkey about safety, millions, and what people think about the risks. They do it for glory and honour , and they'd do it even if they dad to pay themselves for doing it. If real skills and hard work were paying, it would be them, Olympic wrestlers, gymnasts, and a few other athletes making real money, not fat old geezers hitting a golf ball. But unfortunately it's fat, old geezers that make rules in this world.
