Buying Success ?

Since Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea FC
at the beginning of July, he has spent over £111.15m on eleven new players
prior to yesterday's transfer deadline. Some think that attempting to buy success in football (soccer) in this way is tantamount to cheating. This has really shaken things up in the genteel world of football - but is football still 20-30 years behind US sports? (salary caps, etc.)
