Do you realize what would happen to ticket prices if they paid any player 43 million per year. Southward season tickets would have to triple at the least and they would still make a loss. The average ticket price in the stadium would have to be $103 to just break even on Messi's salary. Nevermind the transfer fee. $103 * 25,000 seats * 17 home games = 43,775,000. The would only make profit  in concessions, playoffs, CCL, and Open Cup tickets. Thats only if they can sell tickets at the average cost of $103 per game and manage to sell them out. Only the biggest NFL teams have average ticket prices that are above $100 per game face value.

You're not giving enough weight to the boost in jersey and empanada sales

After watching his two goals today, I cannot see why our FO does not think he is worth the transfer fee ...

Attacker for Red Bull = "But can he press?"  <_<

 

Seriously though, they would sell SO MUCH SODA, and this team is primarily a billboard for them so why not.


RED. BULL. OUT.

We wouldn't have to recoup solely from ticket sales. The amount of Goodwill that RB parent would gain by having Messi walking around sipping Red Bull would be unprecedented. Come on papa RB make this happen!

If we signed Messi in his current form, I would replace water in my diet with Red Bull.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

What about the sales of churros and $1 bottles of water?

Grandfather SW & current ST holders.
Sell seat licenses to the rest, plus higher ST prices!

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

No thank you to Neymar. We dont need a man-child to help the Team.
