I have asked before what you think is likely the going rate for skating shows for an upcoming star like Rippon and Hanyu, the cost to manage them and whether these can be justify from merely 10% flat rate earnings given the types of shows and the number of shows they do a year, since I have already indicated they can't earn that much from prizes, and endorsements even if they medal. Why don't you put forward something, you don't have to name anyone in particular. Please bear in mind an established skater who earned his brilliant credentials to have become a PRO is no way going to command the same rate at their humble beginning when they are just starting out. No skaters get the same rate in the same show either, and it is likely a skater will modify their fees according to the type of shows based on their scale and budget throughout the year. Today's market is also very different from a few years ago. The type of market, the cost/budget running these shows, the scale for the show, where these show takes place. No one is going to pay more than they have to, and no skaters can command more than the market will allow them to, especially when the 2 of the biggest market for ice shows are ran by the very sport agency who also represent majority of the skaters in these 2 dominant countries.
An agency's role is suppose to represent their clients to get them the best deals and bargain hard. This cannot be achieved if they also act as their employer, which is in direct conflict of interests. Show are driven by profit. They can profit through great box office, but also from keeping the cost down. Even though they are earning from both pocket of business (shows and talent management), as long as they can earn more from one pocket to another, the weaker pocket are always going to get bad deal. Apart from that, it shouldn't be hard to work out how much can say Mirai, Rippon will have to earn to justify agency's business interests, consider agency rate typically charge around $400 an hour (maybe less in figure skating?) If agency spend 100 hours a year (again simple numbers for sake of argument - which works out 12.5 days a year), they would gain $40,000 from clients earnings per year (which is reasonable from how much agency can get from a lead), which means the skaters will have to earn $400,000 a year from skating show to justify the agency's time managing them.
Do you think an upcoming skaters can earn that much? Do you think agencies only spend 12.5 days manage their clients activity 1.5 weeks out of the entire year consider there are so many competitions to arrange per year to begin with let alone their training and day to day requirements?
