    If the Chilean league has just started falling behind paying wages, it would make it the most responsible in all of South America. Good luck to the players, they are going to need it.

    Have not followed this story much, but IIRC, Walker and his wife are parents of a newborn. Not the best time to be without a paycheck.

    Chile is the most reponsable in terms of finances, and the basis of how good they are doing is how well Jonny Walker's team is doing (financially). They have just recently stop paying their players, and that is an indication of the level of financial difficulty in Chile. The thread listed is the one to go to...

    Is there ever a good time for this before retirement?

    What is this thing you call retirement?

    I got this from a person who plays an online game (www.hattrick.org) from Chile.

    It is suppose to end soon, but the thing is very bad here, the teams have no money for paying, even the most powerful ones. This weekend the teams will play with the younsters.

    the things are so bad, that the team that came second last season fired all his players"

    I don't know for sure if the teams used youngsters yesterday or not. Fox Sports World Espanol was supposed to have San Felipe v U Catolica on yesterday, but they replayed a Pre Copa Libertadores match (and I don't speak Spanish, so I don't know if they announced anything).
