I did a bit of googling and the average Barnsley player in 2016 (when they were back in Leavue One) was apparently on roughly £2k a week, £104k a year. Average salary for full time workers in this country is £35k a year (combined full and part timers is just under £30k) so even at Barnsley they're earning three times the national average. A ten year career and they've earned what the average person takes thirty years to earn.
Now I know they'll pay more tax on that, but it's not like they're poorly paid at that level.
