We all know that many, and I mean MANY, members of the NFL are among this nation’s über-rich.

Remember the old says when you had to actually do something to be considered a civil rights incon?

Anyhow, just to keep things in perspective regarding those poor, suffering footballers, let’s do a side-by-side comparison between the National Football League and the Canadian Football League.

Wait. Let’s kick it up a notch. How about we instead do a side-by-side-by-side comparison between the National Football League, the NFL practice squads (also known as: The Practice Dummies), and then finally the pros from The Great White North.

Minimum salary:

  • National Football League – $465,000
  • NFL practice squads – $7,200 per week (During a 17-week schedule: Sixteen game plus one bye week equals $122,400 for 17 weeks of work.)
  • Canadian Football League – $53,000 (But in all fairness, that’s in Canadian dollars. So I’m not sure if that’s equal to a butt-load of money or more like a buck fiddy.)

Average salary:
