Perhaps it is not so much the amount of money that is poured in to any specific sport, including rugby, but where and how it is distributed. Take for example the recent TV rights deal for the premier league, which totalled more than £5 Billion. The rise in the amount of money in these TV deals over the years is staggering. The amount of that money filtering down to the grass roots game is approx 5%. To move to rugby, if there are lucrative TV contracts on the horizon how much of that money accrued by the pro game will filter to the roots ? More money, yes, as long as the distribution is effective to the game as a whole, not the top end only.

Well exactly.... the argument i would have had no answer for, is that if as in football, there is that kind of money, that would be 250 million which is still substantial as a figure, if not a percentage.

As expected the massive TV deal has seen huge money being spent on players. Bonkers :shock:




Quote:
Premier League football clubs have broken the summer transfer window spending record, according to analysis from Deloitte.
Clubs in the English top flight spent a total of £870m, up from the £835m record set last year.
The transfer window opened on 1 July and closed at 18:00 UK time on Tuesday.
Manchester City was the biggest-spending club, agreeing to pay about £160m for new talent, which was a record for a single club.
"This summer has seen another record level of transfer spending, as Premier League clubs continue to use increases in their revenue to invest in playing talent," said Alex Thorpe from the Sports Business Group at Deloitte.
"Total spending in 2015, across both the January and summer windows, is also a new record, reaching the £1bn mark for the first time."
Increasing domestic and overseas broadcast revenue was the main driver behind rising spending on players, he added.
"Looking across Europe, Premier League clubs' gross and net spending this summer is more than double that of any other European league."
