Moneyball

Money may not be able to buy happiness, but it can buy success in sports if managed correctly. We as fans of sports love to marvel at the physical performance of the players who play for our favorite sports teams, but what many of us do not know is without the financial cooperation of those players with their organizations, the success that results on the field is not possible. The premier example of this phenomenon is the success of the New England Patriots. They were able to win 6 super bowls in 20 years with their Quarterback, Tom Brady, simply because he took less money to help his team manage money around the roster in a more efficient manner. The result of this method: one of the biggest dynasties in the history of professional sports.

The Numbers Behind Team Building

When you think of success in professional sports, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Trophies? Superstars? Expensive diamond-studded rings? I’m here to tell you that every single one of those things are direct results of one thing: cap management. Cap management is the single most important thing when it comes to building a championship contending team in any sport. Without it, where do you think those superstars come from? Without those superstars, who wins your team those trophies and diamond-studded rings? The successes of any professional sports teams all starts with the successful management of the salary cap in their respective leagues.

    Yo, CW, I love the first one almost as much as I hate the second one!

    Seriously, the Moneyball version is quite brilliant. The first sentence gets right to the point and confirms what a lot of us casual sports fans have always suspected: that money drives success in sports.

    I REALLY LIKE your use of first-person plural here, CW. WE sports fans. OUR favorite teams. You MIGHT want to create a small space between experts and CASUAL fans as in “what few of us stop to consider is that . . . ” instead of “what many of us do not know.” I suggest that to help you avoid sounding like a know-it-all, never smart after you’ve worked hard to establish rapport.

    You might also want to create a comparison between that well-oiled ONFIELD cooperation known as team play and the rarer, MUCH RARER, financial cooperation that occurs only in the most enlightened situations. I say THAT because I read right over the word “financial” on my first read and didn’t catch the reference to the money. Maybe they won with extraordinary team play because their quarterback was an unusually good financial team player.

    I’m just quibbling though. This is really quite good.

    Trash the second version. Those rhetorical questions are really annoying.
