    Only says that twice and it was pretty much at the end so you got through most of it.

    I think it's pretty obvious given the Euro windfall in 2016, the American investment and the subsequent signing of McEleney, Duffy and every other attacking midfielder in the league that Dundalk, clearly, have the fourth highest playing budget in the league.

    Maybe its like Nascar and in fact all the top teams have identical cars.
    So we all do have the 4th biggest budgets

    Chippie living up to his moniker.
    Are any of the assumptions wrong or do they just not suit your agenda ?
    Feel free to correct any invalid assumptions, presuming you can.

    Interesting to see that Rovers lost roughly 200k in 2017. To put that in perspective that's roughly 1,000 extra tickets per home league game. I think Rovers averaged around 3,000 in 2017 so in theory if Rovers could get similar crowds to Cork (4,000-5,000) the club would make a profit each year as things are. Also something of note is that's equivalent to a TV deal worth just 1 million per year for the premier division if split evenly, which is nothing really and shows how handicapped the league is by the lack of one.

    Groundbreaking insight . Somebody should really tell all the LOI clubs that they will make a profit if they can improve their attendances.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    I pointed it out as Rovers have hit those numbers at times recently so there are clearly that many people with some sort of interest in attending regular league games so it's a very achievable figure and shows the club aren't far from being self sufficient.

    If ifs and buts were candy and nuts ... we'd all have a merry Xmas.
