It is also informative for those interested in the relationship between pay and performance, as discussed in this NFL piece about the chaos of fairness.

The GSSS 2011 was published in April last year and also revealed Barcelona and Real Madrid had overtake the NY Yankees as the world’s best paid sports team, and that the NBA is the world’s best paid league by average earnings per player.
