YCS Flawed Stats/Info Analysis: Part 2135143463463434

>> Wednesday

SI.com seems surprised that LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham is nowhere near the list of the highest-paid players in the game today. Beckham's salary ranked 44th in the world, at a little over $7 million per year. The defending World Player of the Year, Brazil's Kaka earns twice as much plying his trade at AC Milan.

However, there is a key difference. Beckham's salary is only the tip of the iceberg. Part of Beckham's contract with MLS was that he would control his image rights, enabling him to keep his endorsement revenue, and earn a percentage of sales of LA Galaxy #23 jerseys. Those shirts are among the highest-selling in the world.

Under many European contracts,* these image rights and jersey sales go to the club, not to the player. So while Becks may make less than Kaka, his contract situation is MUCH better, and Becks is not going to the poorhouse any time soon.

* I cannot confirm if this is the case with Kaka's contract, but it would not surprise me.

His name is Kaka?

Yes, and in a game last year or the year before, I seem to recall Kaka being subbed off for his fellow countryman Dudu Cearense.

I only remember because I was probably watching and laughing hysterically.

Whatever, neither one of them are any good compared to German goalkeeper Shitz Pupenburg.

Remember my goal of lowering the blog's reading level to "preschool"? I think we're almost getting there!
