Reiterate what I said on TBL, there is no way that shit happened as that guy claims it did. 'Obvi.'

+1 to georger for putting up with the comment section of TBL. Those threads are a festival of celebrated idiocy.

re: player salaries

It seems that the Brits talk about players being paid per week, while on the continent it seems typical to talk about what they are being paid per year. Are those different systems of paying or just another way of expressing it?

If a player gets paid X per week, does he actually earn more over the course of the year if his team goes on an international tour in the summer or advances in some tournament - thus he plays more weeks for the team and gets another check?

And, yes, this IS a goofy question.

i don't think it's any difference in pay, just a different way of expressing the amount. i kinda like the weekly pay usage because it really highlights how ridiculous the amounts of money the players make per week.
