How much does an Aussie sport earn

Check out the recent report on Aussie Sports Stars Wages

• Full-time players in Rugby League, outside the first tier roster of 25, receive incomes less than the Australian adult minimum wage; and

• Netballers, who are employed on a seven month contract, have minimum payments less than the adult minimum wage, as do most swimmers and, indeed, many women athletes in a number of sports.

Which goes to suggest that the FFA set the bar too high in terms of costs to start an A-League side.

Where will we turn when Lowy, Sage, Tinkler and Palmer move on?
