Why Are Footballers Highly Paid?

Footballers
(Includes Bank of England report)

The demand for talented football players is high as they increase the team’s chances of winning titles. Successful teams make more money from broadcasting rights, merchandise and ticket sales. Clubs have to compete for the best players by offering the highest wages. If a particular club was to offer lower wages, other clubs would simply outbid them. Football is a globally popular sport, with millions of young hopefuls aiming to reach the top, but very few will be good enough to play in the best leagues and an even tinier percentage will be considered among the world’s best, able to command the biggest wages.

In addition, football is not run on the same basis as US sport. There is no salary cap and no draft system, so there is little to stop the teams with the biggest resources simply outbidding smaller teams to secure the best talent around. An example of the competitive nature of football can be found in England, where it is estimated that of the 1.5 million young players taking part in organized youth football in any given year, only 180 will ultimately make it to the Premier League as professionals. The pool of potential superstars is therefore small, yet the demand for the kind of football talent that can help a team to win trophies is insatiable. Good players not only increase a club’s chances of winning, but they can also boost the club’s profile, which in turn means that the club will be able to attract more fans and more sponsors.

Players are being paid increasingly high wages because the clubs are making more money than ever. As a result of globalisation and technological advances such as the pay TV market, football has become more popular and so more profitable. If people lost interest in football, clubs would not be able to make such high profits and the demand for players would drop and so would their wages.

County Lines

by The Redbridge Police communications office

Healing Relations PR has received important information from communications office at Redbridge Police station.

What is county lines?  Children as young as 7 are being put in danger by criminals who are taking advantage of how innocent and inexperienced these young people are. Any child can be exploited, no matter their background. Criminal exploitation is also known as ‘county lines’ and is when gangs and organised crime networks groom and exploit children to sell drugs. Often these children are made to travel across counties, and they use dedicated mobile phone lines to supply drugs. The children’s commissioner estimates that there are at least 46,000 children in England are involved in gang activity. It is estimated that around 4,000 of those are in London.

How are children being exploited?  Criminal are deliberately targeting vulnerable children those who are homeless, experiencing learning difficulties, going through family breakdowns, struggling at school, living in care or trapped in poverty.

These criminals groom children into trafficking their drugs for them with the promises of money, friendship and status. Once they’ve been drawn in, these children are controlled using threats, violence and sexual abuse, leaving them traumatised and living in fear.

What are the signs?

: Returning home late

: Being found in areas away from home

: Being secretive about who they are talking to.

: Unexplained absences from school, college training or work.

: Unexplained money, clothes jewellery phones

: Increased disruptive aggressive behaviour

: Coming home with injuries or looking dishevelled

: Meeting with unfamiliar people or associating with a gang.

: Leaving home not telling anyone where they are going.

If you have any concerns about these issues or you know someone who is being exploited in this way, please contact the Metropolitan police on 999 if they are in Immediate threat, or 101 in non-emergency, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

Teenagers accounted for more than 1,000 admissions to hospital as a result of assaults with a knife or sharp object last year 2018, NHS figures show. Admissions for all injuries caused by an assault with knife or other sharp objects have gone up by almost a third since 2012-13, from 3,849 to 4,986 last year.

Doctors warned that high street sales of knives is helping to fuel the rise in stabbings, and called on retailers to do more to stem the tide of available weapons. Admissions involving youngsters aged between 10 and 19 increased nearly twice as fast, with 656 hospital admissions in 2012-13 up to 1,012 last year – a rise of around 55%. (England.nhs.uk 2019)

BAME staff on the road to inclusion

Edited by Jennifer Valentine-Miller

“The NHS depends on black and minority ethnic staff to provide high quality, reliable and safe care to patients.” (The Guardian, 2018)

The creation of the NHS 70 years ago coincided with the beginning of a wave of immigration from the Commonwealth and colonies. The British Nationality Act of 1948 affirmed unrestricted movement within the Commonwealth. In 1962 Enoch Powell, the then Conservative health minister launched the Hospital Plan – which envisaged the NHS expanding due to a short supply of skilled staff. Because of their value to the Service their contribution was recognised.

Unfortunately, today many BME staff are experiencing a different NHS which is not as successful or rewarding compared to non-BME staff.

The NHS Leadership Academy state that they hold the principles of equality and inclusion at the heart of everything they do and all that they stand for – the NHS is a universal service and are committed to developing a leadership community which is representative of the groups they serve.
