A 55 yr old signing for over 100 million quid. Absolutely mental.

Surely the saddest fuckers are the ones that have no point other than signalling their own self-importance...?

Ha ha Pony you clown, the irony of you posting your angst about what you deem worthless posts on a message board. Your memoirs will no doubt be riveting!!!

Pony if some discussions vex you so then here's a hint, don't bother reading them, and in turn why waste your precious time commenting on them when you could be doing something that might be meaningful to you on your deathbed instead?

Sad wankers picking apart Ronaldo's sponsorship. Who gives a fuck who is paying what? Imagine how important that will seem on your deathbed.

Re: Ronaldo
Sorry collyrob got that back to front. Im pretty sure its Adidas paying part of his wages as part of a bigger marketing ploy as Adidas took over the kit of Juve from Nike recently. Its not like they need help selling Madrid shirts. Whatever way and whether that rumour is true or not its a deal that will pay for itself through marketing revenue alone. Great bit of business and a cracking player to boot. Well done Juve.

Re: Ronaldo
Nike are picking up a large chunk of his wages as they make Juve's kit and he's a Nike sponsored Athlete whereas at Madrid their kit sponsor was Adidas.




You sure mate?

True.

The NFL coaches nearly always come out of it looking terrible. As if they’re thick and can only shout. In reality though, to understand all those different plays and be able to process them quickly in a match situation, they must be pretty smart.

Yeah, just wondered if the concerns from the actual were similar. Whether it's the management wanting the money or the League forcing a team.

Re: Ronaldo
Irons, different in the NFL. In football, it’s the club who makes the decision, the league can’t make them do much.

Be interesting to see.

Teams in the NFL hate it when its their turn to do one.

they'll probably get another large payment if they allow netflix to do another series of the juventus documentary, im sure they'll ask now he's signed

The extra revenue players like this generate the club make it a commercial no-brainer. When Beckham signed for Madrid, granted it was a mere £25/30m they had made a profit on him before he had even kicked a ball in competitive play through shirts alone.

Re: Ronaldo
When Real bought him from Man Utd 9 years ago, it turned out to be one of the greatest signings ever.

Who was their manager at the time?

Re: Ronaldo
TMTY

I read recently that Real Madrid sell something like 2m shirts a year and well over half of them are attributed to Ronaldo. So if Juve can sell 1m shirts per season over four years down to Ronaldo's signing then that's 200m in revenue generated over his contract. And that's just shirt sales, can you imagine what else he brings to the club in terms of sponsorship, profile etc etc etc
