    Relegation for AFL debate was sparked this week by a couple of suggestions.

    Shot down by most pundits, but its there. Thought I'd mention it.

    Oh? How did they suggest it'd work? As I understand all the main Aussie Rules states have their own comps below AFL.

    Interesting article on English football's player salaries as ratio of club's incomes in yesterday's Independent.

    No fewer than 8 clubs in the top two flights pay over 100% of their total revenue on players' wages. Blackpool the worst offenders with 134% paid. Strikes a stark contrast with the (IIRC) 27% AFL players were campaigning for.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Sounds like 2 divisions tbh. How would you jump from the bottom tier to the top and vice/versa?

    That can't be correct.

    However, buried in the report, 39 pages in, it is noted that Blackpool, paid significant promotion bonuses. Deduct the bonuses, which have been reported to be around £5m, and Blackpool’s wage-revenue ratio is 81 per cent.

    So basically they paid bonuses with the money they would get for playing PL in 2010-11.

    So a £5m drop sees wage ratio go from 134% to 81%?

    Something still doesn't seem right with those sums, given every single side in the EPL gets about £35m in TV revenue.

    Is it based around previous season's revenue?

    (I haven't looked at the figures)

    Yup, all 09-10 data. So it's all Championship revenue.

    Because it was debated a bit on radio today, and shut down by both.

    We have a whole thread about relegation, so thought I'd mention it.

    Back off ****
