Benefits to our players : South American football leagues
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:28:07 PM »
I wonder if the agents  for our footballers ever gave thought to marketing our players in the Mexican and South American leagues as oppose to Vietnam and India?
 
Would our players garner the same marketability in South America as oppose to Asia?
Would it be a better place for skill development and knowledge of the game?
What might the financial playoffs be like?
Since we tend to adapt styles and brands could we learn from the pace at which these South Americans play the game?

We do tend to come up against teams with similar styles in our CONCACAF playoffs- serious advantage to have experienced players who are use to this style.

FRINGE benefits:
- mating with some Brazialians. Argentinas  etc-- could produce some potentially future. "Me dad"

The problem is that there is a huge surplus of decent players in those countries. That's why they export. Therefore, the salaries are not that good. An equivalent third division player in Brazil would be as good as a Pro League player (or an English League 1 player) and probably play for less money too! Vietnam etc pay more money because they have less talented players at the moment (up to US$6,000 per month). But, of course, in 10 years time, they will have caught up and that market will shrink.

They also tend to have strict rules on foreign players - but Brazil Link (or TBL for their football wing) is looking into it extensively.
