I try to be as objective as possible, but of course I will have a bias as an MLS fan.
I think, on average, they are about the same. The average npower wage is about 250k a year, which is about what the good starters in MLS make. A bit more. But, the U.S. has all of its high quality designated players that would be too high quality for npower, like Donovan, Keane, Henry, Cahill, Di Vaio, ect. So MLS has weaker benches (MLS teams spend no money on depth players due to the cap, a lot of guys making league 2 wages), but higher top end players than the championship. I'd place the leagues about even.
