Beckham vs Blanco

There's no end to the articles that keep taking the Beckham $250 million dollar salary as fact.

Beckham is actually making about 5 million a year in salary, which is still twice what Blanco will get from the Chicago Fire, but not the huge disparity this article envisions, which is a scenario where Becks makes more in two weeks than Blanco does for the entire year.

I get irritated when i read about that non-existent $50 million a year salary Becks gets. I don't know why the Galaxy or AEG ever floated that figure out to begin with.

At this point it doesn't matter how much anyone says that that figure is untrue because it's already out there and already the perception.
