Questions about Mexican league

I keep on hearing that the Mexican league is stinking rich compared to the Brazilian and virtually bankrupt Argentine league! how rich is say a club like Cruz Azul or America? could America for example buy D 'Álessandro of River Plate ?
Do these clubs get huge attendances for their matches, assuming that they are the biggest clubs in Mexico!? and who are the famous players playing in the Mexican league? any famous Argentines playing or managing or even Europeans!

and how is Sebastian Abreu rated in the Mexican press? thought he was alright in the world cup! and is Zamarano still scoring?

I dont know much about individual clubs but I know that most of the Club Money comes from sponsorship and TV rights by Major Mexican Tv Industries... TV Azteca, Telefutura, Telemundo, etc...

The Mexican National team made 70 Million last year Mostly off of TV rights.

As to individual players

Sebastian Abreu defenatly ranks amongst the top international attractions in the mexican league (him and Palencia will be very dangerous in the Libertadores)

However there is also

Jose Saturino Cardozo- Paraguayan National who didn't appear much in the WC only because of the gratenes of Santa Cruz.

Alex Aguinaga- Ecuadorian Legend, and still a pritty good player..

Lipatin (I belive his first name is Mario but not sure) - Plays for club America, I belive he is also Paraguayan... Thats a few that I can remember perhaps others can remember more.

Another very important fact is that MOST games in Mexico, day in and day out are played in stadiums either full or very close to full capacity...which greatly increases the profits already generated by the Media...
