The sports that don't allow the walking billboards have prize funds big enough that the players don't need to beg everyone for sponsorship so they can continue to compete.
We're watching a lot of the US Open tennis, and when the #20 seeded woman (Vinci) played #2 (Radwanska) the other day (I had vaguely heard of #2, had no idea who #20 was), they mentioned that the #2 seed had made $10m in her career, and the #20 had made almost $4m, or almost as much as WRW has made in 30 some odd years on tour. Vinci is 29, and 15 of her 22 titles have been in doubles.
The disparity of top athletes' earnings is ridiculous when you try to compare bowlers to tennis players or golfers. Tiger just went over $100m in career earnings (prize money only).
