    Gareth Bale , Obscene Wages

    whilst teams are looking at getting wound up , bale is on 600 grand , a week

    25 million a year ?

    And his sponsorships ?

    Nice genuine guy , supremely talented

    But this sort of money means that the premier league just doesn't really give a ****

    What a disgrace

    All earnings of that level are why this world is going to eat dead rats just before the lights go out

    If the money filtered down to lower league teams there are plenty of dodgy owners who would mess it up. And the more lower league clubs got the greedier the footballer and their agents would become. Owners of clubs like Macclesfield and Bury would just be rubbing their hands and still getting their clubs in to debt.

    Thats another question , football should be reformed with wage caps etc and community involvement should be improved and fit and proper person checks increased

    Are you saying the big clubs that used to distribute money to the lower clubs before the establishment of the premier league and struck a deal to keep more of the money in football shouldnt give any money to the teams outside the Premier league at all ?

    If that's the case one day , we will have liverpool , spurs , United and four or five others left .

    Ludicrous money of course, but in one week he pays more tax than most of us in a lifetime.

    I'd rather he gets it over anyone else who is directly in the food chain. He is the product, and there are lots of people making a fortune off the back of him.

    well his talent is beyond doubt and he's a good bloke

    But the money run modern game has bred a monster

    If this what football is about ?

    I think its appalling and a symptom of capitalism

    I'd rather he get it than just the owners.

    The fact that numpties from Cardiff, Moss Side or Glasgow can earn a fortune because of their talent is brilliant.

    If he couldn't kick a ball he'd be a pleb like the rest of us.

    the wages are obscene, but at least the money is going to the workers generating it rather than the wealthy owners just leveraging their wealth.

    He's not on his own, the whole lot is obscene, premiership clubs spending hundreds of millions on assets.

    If Gareth Bale is on 600K PW and he is paid on a 24/7 basis, he earns more in 3 seconds than the new weekly state pension.

    24% flat tax rate as well thanks to the Beckham Law. To be fair i'd say he didn't even pay that much either, probably put it through a shell company or invested in Dwayne Johnson films

    So far this yea since January 2020, Jeff Bezos net worth increase has averaged $2.25 billion per week.

    so Bale makes 0.012% a week of what Bezos does.

    The most successful con in history by the elites is to have working class people, believing working class people who have done well for themselves is what is messed up about the world.

    Re: Gareth Bale , Obscene Wages

    Why should the big clubs help the small clubs ?

    Why should the mega rich Gareth bale maybe donate a weeks wages , half a million quid to see league two clubs through a tough time ?

    Why should we as cardiff fans be part of a football league that is competitive but has a small pot of money that helps a club that has been run badly to at least have some breathing space till the fans or new owners can keep the club going ?

    I hate Swansea and when they beat Hull to stay up in the football league I was gutted as I wanted them in the conference for 5 years and us to rise up through the leagues and be the the dominant club in south wales like toshacks swansea were in the late seventies and early eighties

    But I never wanted them to go out of business , when they nearly went to the wall with doug Sharpe as chairman and the petty business I sent my Jack mate from morriston 50 quid for the fighting fund

    Is this what football is now ? Why should he , why should Liverpool help Oldham, its not our fault , they had a dodgy chairman !

    Survival of the fittest ?

    Football is about losing at home to the side bottom of the league then coming back from two nil down with ten men to win three two

    Its about bumping into someone at a wedding or a party who has followed Stockport County since he was 6 or a fella who lives in torquay but travels to Hull 6 or 7 times a season as he grew up there , left for work at twenty but loves his club

    If you have to justify the modern game or just say so what thats life then I have to say that you just don't get what society on a bigger level means

    Brian Clough was what he called a football socialist , sure he spent money when forest became a big club but todays outrageous money in the game and the lack of redistribution to keep the football family together would have him turning in his grave .

    I despair at what football has become

    The book by David Conn, searching for the soul of football is many years old now but talked about the monster the premier league was coming

    People should remember that hammam shafted Wimbledon and nearly killed us .

    When it comes to looking after each other a lot of clubs when we were in and out of court wanted us buried and dead

    People should remember that next time macclesfield or Chester or Hereford or Bury are in trouble and their fans are crying out for help from the rest of football

    And a player meanwhile is on 600 thousand a week and the premier league pushes for bigger and bigger TV deals

    Fight the power
