With a new Premier League deal just under way, United expect to generate annual revenue in excess of 420million by this time next year. MONEY LIST You’ll be amazed how much money the world’s biggest clubs make. Check out the top 20 from 2013 . Estimates are the new TV contract will represent an increase of “between 35 and 38 per cent on the previous three-year deal” according to Red Devils executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. But evidently, commercial income is the main force behind a 13.4 per cent rise in overall revenue to 363.2million. And the United States is where the Old Trafford outfit are looking to expand their horizons now. “The US market is under penetrated,” Woodward said. “It is a very big media market, the most developed sports market in the world. “But we don’t want to deals that are quick and wrong, that tie us up and we regret afterwards. “We believe there has been an inflection point from 2010-11 when interest levels in football have increased. “In the last three years the number of people watching Manchester United has gone up by between 30 and 35 per cent each year. NBC reported peak viewership for our game against Chelsea last month was the biggest weekday afternoon audience since the Olympics. “It is moving away from being a niche sport and into the territory of competing with some of the top sports in the country.” United’s massive commercial arm, which will shortly boast an office in New York, in addition to the one that was opened in Hong Kong last year, now represents 42 per cent of total revenue, with sponsorship deals alone amounting to 90.9million, a rise of 44.1 per cent.

United States Caught Exaggerating Terrorism Numbers

These inaccuracies are important in part because DOJ management and Congress need accurate terrorism-related statistics to make informed operational and budgetary decisions, said Michael E. Horowitz, the inspector general of the EOUSA. Indeed, these numbers are important, which is all the more reason it shouldnt take an audit to learn the right statistics. Mistakes happen, but inflating the rate of terrorist convictions by more than a quarter seems pretty fishy. Math isnt that hard. It doesnt take a conspiracy theorist to wonder whether the exaggeration is intentional to help fuel the fear of terrorism . The government has used this fear to push some unpopular agendas; making terrorism real might require convincing people that there are more potential terrorists around than is actually the case. That, or perhaps the focus is on embellishing Americas success in the war on terror. While spending countless billions in taxpayer dollars, establishing an elaborate international spy program and foregoing a slew of other civil liberties in the name of national security, American citizens want to know that these sacrifices are necessary and worthwhile. What better way to justify these costs than to exaggerate the number of terrorist convictions the United States is securing? Certainly, it wouldnt be the first time government agencies were caught playing fast and loose with terrorist data. When information on the NSAs surveillance program first leaked, authorities insisted that the information collected disrupted over 50 terrorist plots. Subsequently, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee acknowledged that that justification was patently untrue . For what its worth, this years review isnt the first time terrorist conviction statistics have been audited.
