There is practically a full page article about the Matadors in the sports section for USA today. DId anyone know that those guys only get paid in the form of tickets, free food and promotional items?

Isn't that enough compensation for people whose only relevant talent is being morbidly obese?

They have to spend a lot of time working on those routines. I think it takes a lot of balls to get up in front of 20,000+ and shake your flab.

It is a simple matter of supply and demand. Suppose the whole group decided they needed to be paid more. The Bulls probably could fairly easily find replacements that would not hurt the Matadors' popularity one iota. If anything, the press attention proabably lessens their market power, if anything, since that likely increases the number of folks who would like to be Matadors.

For that group free food is probably enough esp. if they get free beer too.

In fact, for that group, food is probably more expensive than a service fee would be!
