I eh know what worse, that somebody ask the question or that somebody answer it.

Them men on the bottom in it for the love eh, b/c yuh could make more money pullin bull in Brooklyn (Remsen!)

I wonder what Sealy does think when is both he and Johnson starting, but Johnson making 23 times what he make to sweat.

I suppose if yuh have a good season and a good agent, you could get a nice raise.
I eh know if yuh could live on $31,500 a year nah, yuh need a side-hustle in Wal mart

 :-\  Ah doh know how some body cud even ask dat question, when we all seeing Johnson making $750,000, how on earth dat cud be monthly even worse yet weekly, hello.....  If Ronaldinho, Rooney and Beckham names was dey, ah would have understood de thought behind de question. Dat $31,500 per year is really ridiculous, ah would like to believe, in his contract there is a separate allowance for housing/apartment and a car. If I'm correct, well dat money not 2 bad, when yuh around Sealy's age, ah not sure, but ah think he is  22 or 23 yrs old, wid no wife and kids, just you and your girlfriend, a car payment and yuh send some money home tuh help yuh parents (if dey need it) you should be living descent. That salary ($31,5000) is broken down into the folowing gross pay, $606.00/weekly, $1,212.00/bi- weekly and $2,424.00/monthly, he making $15.15/ hour  :o :o HIGHLY BLESSED.

Breds you could easily make more than that waiting tables or valeting cars and that's take home...no taxes ;D .

What kills me though is that they'll pay him that crap and then if a European clubs comes knocking they won't let him go.

Then again it cud be ah descent check also, when yuh around Sealy's age, ah not sure, but ah think he is  22 or 23 yrs old, wid no wife and kids, just you and your girlfriend, a car payment and yuh send some money home tuh help yuh parents (if dey need it) you should be living descent.

Sealy is about 25-26 and it was reported that he has a kid.

No matter, he will definitely get a raise soon.  He probably already got a raise for this season.

Yea, that is real poor for true...

But then again, there might be some other perks and bonuses that come with his specific deal (i hope) that are not listed, eg housing, car, etc...

Also, I think he have his degree from a US school right...And now he would most probably have his green card sorted out...so looking at the bigger picture...he could be playing with the long term aim of attracting more national call ups and bigger club attention, as well as consistency for a pay raise...

If all that fall thru, he could very easily just settle in the US and fall back on his degree and make 2-3 times what he making now, or even go into some kinda sports admin. The main thing is that he have a foundation in the US.
I know he wish he coulda be making some more $$ for real, but if yuh reading this Scott, hold some strain man, things will look up soon, one way or another...

Them top men who playing pro league in T&T I feel making the equiv. in terms of standard of living, so he still doing better than most if not all of them, plus the US factor...

But Eddie J salary...wheys... That woulda inspire me to play like I possessed and earn some more recognition.

Sealy still on his first contract. So even doh he coreing it eh make no diference. But now his stock rising. So hopefully when they come to negotiation time he could command more. But they does chick feed men over there...dem foriegners doh make plenty. This is because in MLS, every team does pay piece of a players salary and then a group of investors does pay the rest...WHO IS SCOTT? WHat can he sell? Unless he become household and sellable he will get chick feed. ASk AVERY JOHN. why you think he was trying to go england so bad. HE making scott money...take a look at 2006 for all teams....

What I don't understand is why Sealy settling for medicoracy. He is one of the top strikers on the team, he starts almost every game and he is not in rookie status anymore. It hard to see what he is being paid as compared to other players who are in and around the same calibre as him. Sealy, your agent sleeping or what?

Yuh clarify someting fuh we dey kiffysmooth, there was an older thread about whether or not the MLS players are provided w/various amenities to cover accomodation and incidentals, your post seems to confirm that, in which case you could easily assign some multiplier to the MLS salaries, good going Scott, keep yuh head up

Boss, thanks for helping out the thread but listen..... You feel they ain't taking care of Jimmy Conrad and Johnson and them fellas expenses too? Of course they are!!! Of course we have to compare earnings because we must not settle for medicracy. Scott has been a prolific player at Kansas since his rookie season and the club have not shown favorable appreciation for his efforts. When a club put a price on you, thats how much they think you are worth. Is Scott worth US$35,000 a year? HELL NO!!!

He might as well use his degree and start off at $40 plus thousand a year working full time. He is worth more and he deserves it. They taking advantage of him and I don't like that. Another minority have to struggle in the white man country.  Why? For nothing!! Steups!!!

Well I really hope he gets something better as you say. And I hope he really peak at the right time. Anyways, thanks!

Fellas calm down nah. 

I eh no the man contract situation, however, it is possible that he signed a 3 yr deal as a rookie and he in the process of negotiation.  It's the MLS it have nothing to do with race.  He was rookie when he signed his first contract and now he will get his chance.

I know for a fact that there is a rookie on the KC Wizards team that signed a three yr deal this year and he probably go end up in the same situation.

If they don't want to pay him more when he renewing his contract, then I would have a big problem with that.  But remember when Stern was at Columbus scoring all them goals, the Crew preferred to sell him to the Englsh leagues than pay him.  The MLS salary structure is wack!!!
