@Ddr it's not that simple. When all the 2nd places of kimmich TAA hakimi kroos KDB maddison messi depay neymar become payable on an even more regular basis that's a fuckin mountain of cash because the amount of futures in these players that are held across the index are absolutely huge, as indicated by their high price, and every share held will be payable, that's where the problem is
This is why I'd suggest lower payouts for the winner. Obviously they can't go back on what they have now but at the next review rather than, for example, a 50% increase for star man and top position they keep those the same and add in second and third on gold days.
I haven't done any of the maths on players like Kroos, TAA etc but I would think a lower payouts for top position would go a long way to offsetting any extra payouts they'd get for second and third. It also makes more players likely to pick up dividends which would boost their price. I've just checked Pulgar as a player I don't even own but know is a pretty good pb player. I 2019 he was top midfielder three times which is decent going, but he was also third twice and second four times. If he had been paid out lower amounts but nine times he'd be much more attractive and likely be a pound or more than he is now. If it's 600 to move his price a penny then that's about £140k spent on just one player.
The drawback for FI would be that it makes non pb players or he general shite even more worthless than they are now so may limit trading but I always think there will be people looking for quick flips and pure capital appreciation.
