re: Why are european clubs so quick to fire managers? - RTR America
[quote]I don't have a problem with that though because it's the free market at work. What I don't like is the leagues manipulating their position via bogus anti-trust exemptions to create a de facto monopoly over major competition in each of their respective sports. They have abused that position to...

[quote]As already said, a degree of uncertainty is one thing, full on parity is something completely different. [/quote] No league in the world has full on parity even in college sports, but there is a reason people adore their being Cinderella teams in the NCAA tournament. People love the ...

[quote]As previously mentioned, studies have shown that parity has no impact on fan interest. [/quote] Except all of the metrics that prove otherwise. [quote]Saying "they can go play in China if they don't like it" is not a sufficient response. It's a really lazy argument actually and proves ...

re: Why are european clubs so quick to fire managers? - RTR America
Or you know the fans. Again the players have options to go play all over the world. China for example his dropping boat loads of cash on American players. Their goal as an organization is to produce a product that people will consume. Most normal people love parity when it comes to sports unless ...

re: Why are european clubs so quick to fire managers? - RTR America
Seriously. My favorite league is the NBA and it seemingly has the least amount of parity of any America professional league. If I had a championship or bust attitude it would be a very miserable experience. I personally hate the soccer fan idea of calling out these leagues for how they are struct...
