Yea, it's probably not Jerm than. My guess is Paige. And this is all wild speculation on my part.

hmm.. yes I am. But do you know for sure he (Jerm) is getting an actual salary from Innova? I just looked at Innova's star team, are all those players getting a base salary now? That would be awesome for the sport.

I was talking strict base salary. Not including disc sales. I am fairly certain I can name 6 players that have at least 100K a year from their sponsor.

Has the salarys been on this level for a long time or is it "a new thing"?

I guess that Pauls way of "coming out" with what he makes must have made for some interesting negotiations for the other top players.

Guessing....
MPO: Paul, Simon, Eagle, Ricky, ? ? ?
FPO: Paige

What I'm curious of, besides the big 6, is there any other pros getting any form of a base salary at all? I'm guessing on the FPO side it's a big no since several well known players have addressed cash flow problems.

Wasn't that Prodigy's thing when they started? Everyone on the team got a base salary? Wasn't that how they were supposed to change the game?

The number I heard of when they created Prodigy was 2k$/month as a base salary. And this number is from a player that received an offer from them, but didn't join them back in the days.

But, that was in 2013. It may be more now, at least for the core members.
