THE ROAR ON
I reckon the following equity model could easily be achieved at every existing A-League club and in every township hub that services at least 500k people.
There would be 5 categories of Shares sold. Each share is worth $1 and each share carries 1 vote.
Category A: Local Council 500,000 shares
Category B: Big Businesses (turnover more than $5m/yr) 20,000 shares
Category C: Small Business (turnover $1-5m/yr) 10,000 shares
Category D: Sole Traders (turnover up to $1m/yr) 5,000 shares
Category E: Individuals 1,000 shares
Then I think it's not unreasonable to project the following numbers for each Category & Total Equity raised.
Category A: 1 x $500k = $500k
Category B: 10 x $20k = $200k
Category C: 50 x $10k = $500k
Category D: 200 x $5k = $1m
Category E: 5000 x $1k = $5m
Total Equity: $7.2m
Licence Fee = $5m
Operating capital = $2.2m
By getting a Local Council (or group of Local Councils) as an equity ownership provides clubs with a real local identity.
But, that's just 1 aspect of football. Penalties are a minor part of the game.
More relevant to take a corner & try to score. Or, free kick from outside the box.
Playing Golden Goal with players fatiguing would be riveting.
Give me the 2015 Asian Cup final tension - real tension; not contrived for TV tension that we get with a penalty shoot out.
"now that sports science has advanced they have realised that a squad of 23 puts players at risk."
Where did you read that? I'd be keen to have a look at this report.
I've only read research that says footballers need a minimum of 3 full days between competitive matches.
In 2014, Germany won the World Cup with a squad of 23 players who played 7 matches over 27 days.
