It's very simple math to take care of the conversion. All US based players could still be paid USD, for that matter so could the London based players and no you wouldn't have to make any absurd adjustments for cost of living, is the salary cap adjusted across the US? Nope. I can request my employer pay me in one of about 20 currencies no matter where I work or live.
There is an expense with the flight however is not prohibitive to keep this from happening and certainly something a London based owner would know going in to this
There is also not a magical 3 hour flight difference on the return flight
Actually, I work in Houston for a London-based company. I know about business.
Anyway, as I said, we will have to agree to disagree. I'm done with this conversation.
A London team will not happen.
