Wish I was making those salaries.


They're low, when compared with the other 4 major US professional sports.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I think the trio of Adams/Davis/Felipe more than makes up for the absence of Dax in the midfield. I think Felipe has been pretty good in that deeper role as well. Don't forget that in this off-season the team was actively shopping all three of Sacha, Felipe, and Dax as per twellman. 

 

The mistake is that we really should have used this money on a durable CB who was not a project. A Parkhurst right now would be wonderful.

we have quite a few guys that make in between $101k-$499k. would like a different category to be established in graphs like these where they make a differentiate guys who make north of $100k and guys who make in between $250k-$499k. 

 

Look at Orlando and LA. I'd be worried if I was the GM/SD of either team. I imagine Orlando's graph will be different next yr when Kaka (prob) retires.

There's some correlation between spending and PPG but not a ton. Overall I think the argument is more in favor of spending smart than spending a ton. Toronto's the only one doing both right now. I guess Atlanta too if you consider transfer fees in addition to just salaries.

 

This is why I'm more frustrated with our lack of impact in the $200k-$500k range than the lack of big DP spending.
