AFC Champions League Final[edit]

They will face Adelaide United, who are NOT giants, but rather giant-killers. The A-League has a salary cap of AU $1.9 million dollars per team. How can a club under such financial constraints, that has NEVER even won their domestic competition, be seen as "giants"? I have edited the article to reflect this, before anyone changes it back can they please justify why Adelaide should be considered "giants"?

The justification for their status as "giant-killers" is that they defeated FC Bunyodkor, who have a single player who's salary is greater than the entire of Adelaide Uniteds yearly budget. 121.215.49.62 (talk) 04:09, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Maybe we should just remove the reference together no matter how it's worded unless we see something sourced. —Borgardetalk 07:45, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
