Heaps more money in cricket, now that Twenty20 has taken off you don't need to be playing test cricket (or even any form of first class cricket if you're Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Hathew Hayden etc) to still be raking in the coin playing in IPL and big bash tournaments.
AFL is still mostly winning the battle for multi talented 18 year old kids here, but the odd one (Geoff Marsh's youngest bloke springs to mind) has cottoned on that you can play for 20 years, travel the world and be well paid for it.

He's a midget, jockeys like to hang around him so they look normal, maybe he's got an eye on the mini flyweight title...
