    One thing people forget/omit about the NFL salary cap is that there is also a very high NFL salary floor. The players unions would never agree to the cap without the floor being present.
    Each team must spend 90% of the cap, and the league as a whole must spend 95% of the cumulative cap. Any less and compensation must be paid to the players to bring it up to that level.

    Apply a cap/floor like that to English football, and you pretty much kill stone dead the romantic idea of a Grimsby finding their way to the EPL for a few seasons.
    Apply it the UEFA competitions and you're into farce, as clearly the resources of the 5th team in England and the Albanian champions in a Europa group have no happy medium point.

    Which is not to say I have a solution either, merely a rejoinder to the lazy 'salary cap like wot they have in America wud sort it' efforts at solutions that pop up in the media.

      Was absolutely horrific. Mad that there only been 2 over 25+ years and he’s been in both matches. Career over I’d say.

        Number of Covid-19 patients in hospitals slightly up. Hopefully its not the start of an upward trajectory, but it wouldn't surprise me.

          never seen anything as clean as that one tbh. the whole leg just wrapped around the tibia, and when he goes to stand on it was even more sickening.

              Being a Spurs fan waiting for the EFL Cup final against Man City is like being invited to a fully participative threesome with Scarlett Johansson and Mandingo.

Their '5 year plans' go up in smoke and have to be rebuilt.

                There is nobody that would be left in the championship that realistically wants Liverpool, City, United, Arsenal, Spurs & Chelsea to be dropped into their division.

                You could argue for a points deduction I guess and they have to fight their way out of a -15 at the start of the year or whatever but I'm not sure what mechanism that would have to get that through in the absence of them actually starting a breakaway league. Especially considering their whole plan was to continue to play in the premier league, but then I have no real idea of the legal ins and outs. I would assume that they all did their due diligence and found a loophole or caveat that would allow them to do so without being punished for it. Otherwise it's hard to see any of them signing up so publicly and being left open to a double whammy.
                I’d say all but 6 maybe 8 would be absolutely delighted to have them until their league, season tickets would go through the roof, they’re guaranteed 6 full houses at least, likely more with higher season ticket sales. Yes less likely to get promoted but I actually think it’s like a huge donation given the commercial revenues that they’d generate they wouldn’t be otherwise available.

                  Maybe, it’s hard to know for sure though. In the last full season with fans, championship attendances were the highest for any 2nd division in the world and higher than some 1st divisons.

                  14 teams at >75% average attendance
                  18 teams at >60% average attendance

                  bear in mind there are also a lot of small stadia in the championship so the upside is relatively small, but then their costs are also lower so maybe that’s a wash too.

                  I don’t think there’s any doubt that there would be more interest and money as a result, i’m not sure there would be enough to offset the negative impacts once they go back up but obviously that’s just personal opinion and I could be way off.

                      It would surprise me. Given the profile of those getting covid vs those vaccinated.

                        Seems like only yesterday I was plotting and planning with the crew throwing this legendary knees up.

                            I didn't realise you were involved in that! Very cool. I was at that, and the one at donabate. My friends were reminiscing about it earlier.

                              Watching The Righteous Gemstones after letting in slip through the gap a few years ago. It's very good. First episode was the worst, which maybe encouraged a few dropouts.

                                  I wonder do some countries just naturally look more chaotic. Like remember the wailing and collapse of Italy compared to the apparent serenity of the UK during covid. Despite both countries having the exact same covid outcomes. Maybe the media bias is to emphasis the chaos of certain countries. Like, people were being treated in carparks in Belfast just a few months ago, but it wasn't really filmed as it was viewed as an intrusion of privacy.

                                    I think Italy was special - but only because it was the first country in our sphere to get totally slammed by covid. Any country finding themselves in that situation, even Switzerland, would have looked chaotic at that point in time and on the learning curve. Call it first mover disadvantage.
                                    It's interesting you think the UK looked 'serene', given that they had the worst outcomes. Worse than Italy. Maybe it's just they are led by a fool who is incapable of taking anything seriously, except his own ambitions?

                                    India and Brazil (and much of the rest of South America) are getting slammed now as the rich countries gradually get their vaccine programmes into top gear. It's a function of many factors - underfunded and underdeveloped health care systems, irresponsible political leaders, even culture to some extent (for example the Hindu festivals which as usual were thronged this year and undoubtedly were super-spreader events) and, of course, poverty.

                                    Probably the most surprising aspect of the pandemic for me has been the comparative lack of outbreaks in Africa where you have vast city-slums which in theory should be perfect breeding grounds for covid.

                                    edit to note that of course our impressions are completely shaped by what we see in the media - for whom of course chaotic scenes are ratings gold! India probably too democratic to stop these scenes being shot, compared to some other places where the management of the pandemic is shrouded in mystery.

                                            35th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident today.

                                            According to the official, internationally recognised death toll, just 31 people died as an immediate result of Chernobyl. Model predictions with the greatest confidence values of the eventual total death toll in the decades ahead from Chernobyl releases vary, from 4,000 fatalities when solely assessing the three most contaminated former Soviet states, to about 9,000 to 16,000 fatalities when assessing the total continent of Europe.

                                            In Ireland alone, 4,873 deaths have been attributed to Covid. Globally we are over 3 million.

                                              I thought housing shortage was a problem, turns out the oul childminding / school shortage also an issue!

                                              Not just able to point at a school in your locality and say "will send them there", heaps of hoops to jump through - including non-refundable waiting list deposits for montessori schools!

                                                      I was at the very first Creation beach party, maybe 2 years before this one and my buddy Matt hit it off with Cozzy and became a core part of the crew soon after as he had some experience with the free party scene in London and knew a fair bit about PAs.

                                                      So I was always hovering around the periphery doing small bits and pieces to help Matt out more than anything.

                                                      Did 'security' on one of the buses that went down the quays for this one (we arrived just as the first Guard arrived and slipped in past him as he looked fairly bewildered) and a couple of other bits and pieces including an ill-fated van journey to procure the famous camouflage netting they used for this and other parties.

                                                      A ladder on top of the van wasn't secured properly and flew off going up a slip ramp on the N11 IIRC and we were lucky no one was hurt. We sensibly took that as an omen and went home that particular evening.

                                                      I spent the day in court with Matt a couple of months later - (certainly many hours as the superintendent who was supposed to give evidence didn't turn up and had to be sent for). Think he got fined e500 into the poor box. The Guard was very senior but quite complimentary about how the party was run and the interaction with the organisers.

                                                      PS.. the Brew Dog pub and Indeed offices sits on that exact site now.

Bought the shares with Biden money, as you might remember, at an average of €1.32 last October and November. Some return!

Love Ben Kingsley and he was as intense as I was expecting him to be. Ray Winstone suited to his part well also. Worth a watch.

I read they held a party at the start of the filming, Kingsley turned up in character and was so annoying Ray W climbed out a window to get away from him!

I guess we should wait and see where he ends up. Maybe he is that most dangerous of things, a true idealist. In which case we're best off rid of him.

                                                                                                                        Wonder does he get ministers pension or a TDs?

                                                                                                                        The local secretary of the labour party spent about 2 years asking me to join in my early 20's, because he wanted a take the piss lefty in the Sligo branch

                                                                                                                        if he had pointed out to me that all I had to do was get elected (not the easiest for anyone from Sligo town due to Leitrim/Co Sligo vote)
                                                                                                                        and hold onto the job for 10 years to be pretty much sorted, he might have gotten a different reply
