What kind of salaries do you envision these teams paying? How many of the best Latvian players would go somewhere other than Latvia to play? If most or all of the best talent goes elsewhere, how much would local fans be willing to pay to watch the leftovers play? I am just curious about your vision.
^That surely is Estonia's population, no? Anyway our top football teams budgets are $2 dollars, they are similar probably in basketball so you figure what our regional hockey teams could pull together.
