For me, the QPR comparisons come more from the football strategy side.
If you go back to the 2012/13 season when they finished 20th, they had a squad with a lot of players with good Premier League pedigree which they signed like Ji Sung Park, Chris Samba, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jose Bosingwa, Robert Green, Jermaine Jenas plus they had spent big (for that time) on Esteban Granero from Real Madrid and Loic Remy. On paper QPR looked like they had a good bunch of players...
But the reality was their transfer policy was scattergun based largely on the availability of players without thinking of a system to play and they tried to pick up quite a few freebies like Joey Barton, Kieron Dyer, Ryan Nelsen, Andy Johnson, Julio Cesar, Tal Ben Haim. There were big issues with discipline, lack of professionalism and obviously those players who might have done well before at Chelsea, Man Utd, Spurs and Man City looked crap on the field.
Check some of the wages players like Bobby Zamora, Chris Samba, Ji-Sung Park and Joey Barton were on: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2316528/QPR-signed-25-players-years-relegated--heres-fared.html
I just fear that Everton are following a similar misguided path in footballing matters. It's great that Moshiri has improved massively our finances, commercial deals and is making great progress on the stadium front, but the footballing side carries the most weight - if we fuck this up on the scale that QPR did then should we find ourselves relegated, then our revenue will drop and commercially we will be seen as a less attractive option and goodness knows how that will impact raising funds for the new stadium.
