Williams: There Are Merits To A Salary Cap
Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams has backed the calls for a salary cap to be put in place in the Premier League, saying the merits of it make it worthwhile.
Williams believes that if a salary cap was introduced it would bring down lavish spending and prevent the bigger clubs from getting even bigger and bring more clubs to a more even level to make English football more competitive again.
Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I believe there are merits to bringing in a salary cap. The idea of capping to make everything equal in football really excites me, it would be like racing drivers changing cars with each other to stop the same Ferrari driver always winning.
"The problem with the idea of caps is when it is talked about in relation with debt and security. People say wages should be kept in relation to turnover and that would not help at all.
"If you said, for example, wages had to be 65 per cent of turnover, some of the bigger clubs' wages would actually have the capability to increase.
"People suggest capping as a financial security issue, that would make it even harder for the majority of clubs to compete in the Premier League."
JW isn't the only one who would like to see such a thing happen, but how is something like this enforced with the power that so many clubs have?!?!
