The one problem I have with professional soccer is no real opportunity for parity among teams. Real Madrid is basically an all star team of the best players in the world. There is no revenue sharing and no salary cap....and even no ownership so zero incentive for any kind of profit. Also, the figures are slightly inflated due to the Euro-U.S. exchange rate. With that said, I love soccer but much more from the World Cup point of view than any club professional soccer.
