What? The single A player, who is 100% a professional, makes under $6,000 per year, plus a reimbursement of about $1250 for meals. So lets say this is $7,500 per year. If this were a team of 4, that woudl combine to $30K. So let me look at the curling tour, and how many teams earned more than $30K. There are 16 men's teams and 20 women's teams. So at least 144 curlers are professionals by salary standards compared to A ball. This does not include any sponsorship money, or government subsidies they get, just winning.

Now, this is a terrible salary, and needs to be supplemented by other income. But plenty of non-sports professionals work 2 jobs.



LMFAO curlky. That single A ballplayer also has all his travel and out of town accommodation paid for-unlike competitive curlers who pay their own. i
Most single A are also billetted out-reducing their costs even more.

Face it, your argument for 'pro curling' is bogus. There ain't any such thing. 😆

Have to agree with old Stevie here. Firsthand knowledge from a true non-professional, Lol.😃
