I think in past years someone has done a PL final table with overall spending, transfers, plus wages (not the infamous net spend), and the order of the whole table is largely related to spending. There will be the odd anomaly but actually far fewer than you might expect.Fair point though not to the same degree. What it did show though was, in Saracens case, that in sport the most money spent often wins and surely that stops it being a sport and moves it to a contest of wallet size. Admit I am talking idealistically and painting broad brush strokes but it does fascinate me how some sport is not really a sporting contest. Basically just one of those hypothetical debates I enjoy if it remains general and not partisan
For me, that's why I am not overly bothered when a rich owner comes in and spends big. Yes, I know the consequences if it goes wrong, but otherwise the status quo remains for ever more and that is plain dull as well as being a closed shop of just a handful of clubs.
I'd love the idea of a salary cap, that would equalise out the inequalities, but there is way too much money at stake for the PL to agree to that. Sadly.
