What is more obscene, Randolph's gesture or his pay?

More on money and values. The Oregonian reports today that when Blazer star Zach Randolph was suspended for one game because he made an obscene gesture to the crowd, it cost him his one-game salary.

And what would that be? $1,000? $2,000 $10,000?

Not even close.

Randolph is so "valuable" that he "earns" $133,333 a game.

"Valuable" to whom? For what? And why?

And Randolph is complaining. He says the penalty "isn't fair."

The penalty may not be "fair," but only if his salary is. Anyone care to argue that it is? Fair to whom?
