Haha! Sorry I did not want a debate about this, but surely you must read through your comment and see that it was a bit rediculous to say what you did in the way you did eh? And as for toning down, I think the internet made me seem a lot angrier then I was!
Anyway, that aside, I have no idea about teams financially, but I agree with you that as a trio they may be expensive for potential sponsors, especially with two of them asking for a world championship winning salary. Guessing Dan would be recieving what they do without the results bonuses, too.
But you will find the salary of the top downhillers is massive, the ones at the very top earn what you would expect from a world-beating athlete.
I have no vendetta against you bro - sorry!
