It's interesting that Nancy's husband Jerry says that she's not motivated by
money and yet he says she's made over 10 million.  I seem to recall a pro
competition a couple of years back where Nancy explaine to a TV comentator her
poor performance saying in effect that since she was getting an appearance fee
it was hard to get motivated.  Even Scott Hamilton criticized her statement.
More than the Oksanana makeup or Disney quotes, that was Kerrigan's alltime
blunder, since there was no Olympic pressure to blame such a dumb remark on.
If she's not motivated by money and she's not motivated to do her best by a
competetive fire, what's left?  Love of skating or her audience?

Its really interesting and funny to hear all the pro athletes who say
"Its not the money".  OK, then skate for $50k a year ,PROVIDED the
savings are passed on to your fans.  Then I can believe "its not the
money".

And coaches, costumes, music rights, choreography, ice time, skates,
trainers, gym time, travel -- these would be paid by whom?  You're not
leaving those folks much (if anything) for food and housing.

     According to research I did (using published reports), if Tom Collins cut
his profits by 25% and the skaters cut their salaries from him by 25%, giving
the savings back to the fans would result in an $18 reduction in COI ticket
prices across the board.
