World Sport Salaries: It Pays to Play Soccer

This Table is from Nick Harris editor of sportingintelligence.com via ESPN.com. "Average Weekly Pay" is calculated from base player salaries from current or most recently completed seasons from each sport, and excludes endorsements, bonuses, appearance fees and any other source of extra compensation. All figures converted to U.S. dollars.

Note the Portland Trail Blazers are #30 in the world (though #12 in NBA) - talk about not getting value for money.  The Portland Timbers are #259.
