In terms of cars, not only do they have much steeper decpreciation, they also entail insurance cost. I've so far never heard of required racquet insurance.
Uh...you won't get any argument from me that drug/alcohol/gambling addictions are worse than racquets and more costly. But the fact that something else is more expensive (and unhealthy to boot) doesn't change the fact that racquets are still damned expensive.
