Maradona turns to fans for helping hand

“I recall an English club chairman indignantly saying some 20 years ago that the fans were mad if they believed their ticket money paid the players’ wages. It was a classic case of someone knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing. True, in cold, economic terms he might have been correct. Money pours in from other sources – TV rights, sponsorship deals, corporate boxes and so on, but take the fans away from the stadium and all those other revenue streams instantly dry up.” (BBC – Tim Vickery)
