Some observations:

 

  • Chara is only a DP for this season as his salary is a DP salary. This is this way because of the transfer fee we had to pay.
  • Who decides to pay someone 61,666.67? Just a weird number.
  • Well I don't feel so bad about teachers only starting at 32,000 a year in Oregon, a professional soccer player makes the same coming out of college.
  • Some of the division 2 players really cashed in on their success with the Timbers, I am happy for them
  • The salaries are all about what I thought they were getting paid.
  • Our total Base Salary is $2,247,120 and the total compensation $2,652,808
