Here in the U.S., we blast the rich teams in sports.
People hate the Yankees, the Redskins and the New York Rangers because they spend so much money.
This week, the Real Madrid soccer team has spent $97 million to sign free-agent Kaka, and now $131.6 million JUST TO TALK to Christiano Ronaldo.
That’s $228 million on two players, with one of them not yet signed to a contract.
The Yankees spent half a billion on free agents last off-season, and they still can’t beat the Red Sox.
The Redskins have poured hundreds of millions into free agents this decade, including $100 million on Albert Haynesworth this year, and haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1991.
We know about the Rangers.
So, if soccer in Europe is anything like pro sports in America, Real Madrid isn’t going to win any championships.
Since losing soccer games causes riots in Europe, I’m guessing expensive losing soccer games cause even greater criminal activity.
Redskins owner Dan Snyder likes to spend so much on players, he should join Stan Kroenke (Rams, Arsenal) and Malcolm Glazer (Buccaneers, Manchester United) and get himself a soccer team, too.
