what do you think?. coud it work like in NHL!!.
According to this guy ... yes.
I read a salary cap is actually against EU laws? Also how would you enforce it? There are 55-56 different European leagues of differing financial abilities, would there be a single salary cap or would each league have their own?
I would like to see FFP be more strict and followed by all clubs (not just teams who qualify for Europe). Find it ridiculous how big in debt these clubs are yet they still spend spend spend
EU labour laws would never allow a salary cap.
It would definitely not be legal, more likely footballers will have more freedom regarding transfers in the future.
Why, so the owners can embezzle and steal more money from the game? I don't think so.
The NHL would be better without a salary cap.
Not a chance.
The issue right now is the precedent of rich oil tycoons buying teams and playing football manager in real life.
I'm pretty sure the French rugby league, the most(?) lucrative rugby league out there, has a salary cap.
Love too underpay my players under the guise of providing more parity.
Incredibly difficult to formulate and implement if not impossible
Good luck getting teams to not abuse it.
"Neymar signed a contract for 4 years worth only $4million dollars! And we're pleased to announce his father is getting a management position with our club for 4 years for only $100 million!"
In rugby there's a dubious construction in which some domestic leagues have salary caps, and star players are excluded from the national team if they go play abroad.
An UEFA-wide salary cap would definitely not fly. However, individual domestic leagues could theoretically institute a salary cap for themselves. But why should a league do that if the other leagues don't do it as well? It would hurt their competitiveness vis-a-vis the other leagues. Imagine the Primera Division introducing a salary cap: Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 would send them gift baskets with a thank-you note.
And of course there is this:
Well, I guess this is an interesting look on it.
They are the owners, it's their money.
I would be in favour of a salary cap in football. Regardless of other things (like, shock, the investors getting a bigger return on their investments) it would definitely improve parity and emphasize the importance on coaching, management and good scouting/training.
Though again...it'd mostly be impossible to implement fairly across Europe without some kind of revenue sharing system between all the leagues with UEFA controlling the money and that just won't ever fly.
It's not the game's money, it's the owner's money.
You are not European I take it.
Nope, the Euro view on this stuff boggles my mind.
No, not even. Other than the handful of owners who decided they want to play Football Manager, the money comes from one group of people.
It's the FANS money. But I guess those FM playing owners are fans too. All the match-day revenue comes from the fans. All the TV money comes because the fans are watching and paying for it. All the sponsors come because of how many fans the teams have. That some people don't understand this is completely baffling.
It is the club owners who provide us entertainment, not the players.
It's no different from a regular business. We are the consumer of a product, we enter voluntary transactions to enjoy the product they produce. We don't have any more rights or privileges when we buy an iPhone, it's no different when we buy tickets to sporting events or buy a jersey or anything else. Fans are simply the consumer, we pay money for a product that we enjoy, and that's the extent of the transaction.
Just how owners pay the players for the value that they bring.
Anything left over is up to the owners/shareholders discretion. Without owners their would not be a product. Without fans their wouldn't be revenue, without players, their wouldn't be a product, and without the owners, there wouldn't be the infrastructure needed to run the club and sport.
Many big clubs are fan owned, so certainly that is not true.
Let's also implement the draft while we're at it. Let's North American-ize football because they know what's best for sports.
