Gareth Bale’s Wages Stat Attack | Can He Attempt a Scrooge McDuck?

Gareth Bale’s Wages Stat Attack | Can He Attempt a Scrooge McDuck?

Senior Cynic Chris Boud provides an alternative [and (probably) factual] look at the numbers behind Gareth Bale’s bumper salary deal from Real Madrid with a Stat Attack Infograph.

With Gareth Bale’s long running transfer saga finally coming to a conclusion most sane minded football fans hoped and assumed the constant articles and reports about Bale would at last cease; how wrong they were. The media rolled out the numbers behind the deal, the former players who thought his wages were shocking, having only earned half a million or so a year in their day, how his salary would compare to other superstars, the sponsorship deals and so on.

We here at 90MinuteCynic are no different and immediately wanted to provide some unnecessary number-related nonsense to fill our eager readers noggins, however with the saturation of ‘How much Bale earns a day/hour/minute’ articles, what original content could we bring to the football supporting public? Well for all the so called ‘Statistical Analysis’ there was not one mention of any of the Universal measurements that all good Statistical articles should employ: How many ‘Areas the Size of Wales’, ‘Football Pitches’, ‘Blue Whales’, ‘Double Decker Buses ‘, Olympic Size Swimming Pools’ or  ‘Trips to the Moon’ could Bale’s earnings cover/weigh/fill/match in height/reach etc.

With this in mind we have answered the questions the mainstream media were afraid to [or just not that bothered about] including the most important; with Gareth Bale’s increased wealth and propensity for diving can he achieve a Scrooge McDuck and swim in his own money? For the answer to that question, some poorly made digs at Wales and more, read below.
