I agree the finances in football are ruining the game. The German model of football seems to be the best for fans and football clubs alike. Sadly money talks and the English game doesn't look like it's going to change any time soon.
Don't ignore the fact that the epl is only made up of a few good teams. The other teams are average and will never win the competition. At least rugby league has a salary cap, therefore every team is on an even playing field.
The Premier League is more open this year than ever before. 5-6 teams all have very good squads (rosters) and if the hold their nerve anyone could easily win the league.
Compare it with the other leagues in Europe where only 2 or 3 teams ever battle it out for the title it's a fairly open league.
