Tonight is depressing enough but some of the stuff posted on GAAboard today is making it worse.

8 teams will wage out at between 1.5 to 2 million each. Already 6m per annum is already allocated to professional services By GPA. Addison also gate revenue will bring in 5- 10. Sky will ultimately fund the difference. There'll be a loss of good of their health sponsors but outright commercial sponsors will increase, a la rugby league model. Without sky or similar  the model can't be achieved.
Why would anybody be against the lads earning a few bob?

I don't think Sky will have the appetite for it. Without an international element they won't want to know. I think a sizeable percentage of supporters will vote with their feet too if we head down that route...and gates will fall. What is a professional wage? 25'000? 30'000? per player?
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.
