This is why the NFL has salary caps and why all sports need them

Chelsea makes good on Abramovich's $2.8 billion investment by winning Champions League


$2.8 billion to buy a championships? ğck that. How can you be proud of that? That's worse than the pathetic NY Yankees trying to buy the World Series.

too right it is a lot of money however the money is made back through prize money for league finishes, cup wins, attendances throughout the season, t.v rights, merchandise and most importantly overseas sales. Manchester Utd and Chelsea make hundreds of millions per year from sales of shirts and kits in places like Malaysia and China. That is why they go on pre season tours there. Sometimes these clubs will sign an Asian player to boost sales even though the Asian player hardly plays.

To me football is like religion. It has the ability to make vast amounts of money from its fans/congregation. For example Man Utd makes over three and a half million pounds for every home game played. You are right that they should have salary caps on players but then who gets the money? It would otherwise go to club execs, business men and owners. What really needs to happen is a reduction in costs across the board for match tickets and shirts etc but as long as fans are willing to pay the money, which they are, then nothing will ever change.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

What the NFL does is total up every penny brought in from anything related to the NFL and takes out something like 28%. That 28% is divided by the number of teams and that total is the amount each team is allowed to spend on salaries for players. (This year it was $120 million.) The rest is used for operating expenses. That way you don't have the wealthiest owners spending several times more than the less wealthy. It makes it more fair and competitive when your wins and losses are determined by coaching and playing as a team rather than who has the most money. I say that championship was a hollow victory.

I would guess a majority of their merchandise is manufactured in Asia as well. China would crash if we all brought our business home. chuckle.gif

i'm not sure it was a hollow victory. Real Madrid and Barcelon spent far more money than Chelsea did. Remember Real Madrid paid 80 mill for Ronaldo alone and only managed the semis. I do agree with you about the spread of money though but even with all the money spent by Chelsea they only managed to finish sixth in the league. what is not said in the article is that most of the money was spent buying the club to begin with and then making improvements to the actual stadium.

They are already moving on. Many have discovered the mistake of leaving the States and are returning. I always said that claiming we had to move on from industry into "services" was stupid. How can you clamor for more jobs and then when they start creating new jobs (service) they send the old ones away.
