The difficulty in the CC is that all players are, technically, semi-professional. This means that all other "earnings" unrelated to the club or their role are not included as salaries. There have in the past been some imaginative treatments of alternative employment, particularly for imports, although none have yet been earmarked as "billiard hall markers".

Yes it is, and it is classified as sponsorship, hence income.


We must ask them for our money back then.

Who should we ask, BSJ ?

It's a no.

I spoke to a bloke from Newcastle earlier this week about their contract and salary cap process.

Most illuminating. They are supervised much more deeply.

No doubt this stems from the Melbourne scandal.

The salary cap in Oz does seem to even up the competition though, whereas here it has had no such effect.

Because in Australia, pretty much everyone is paying up to the cap, which means that the squad strengths are more even.

It also means that, until now, they have had to let some better paid players go when they wanted to recruit younger ones, so the talent gets spread around a bit more. Will this continue with the new TV deal?

Melbourne broke the salary cap big style a few years ago.

We'll see - but spreading the talent around is the idea of the Australian cap. Over here, it's a (vain) attempt to stop clubs going bust.
