the major football broadcasters are fuelling the fire over the super league because of the fear in losing the tv rights
they have drummed up a fan revolution to put a stop to it. even pundits are drilled before the game to make as much noise as they can
sky and BT-sports are running scared of the internet companies that want to invest in football
most people in the world have internet at home or on the phone and if they ever got hold of football it would be like printing there own money ? Amazon or Disney would blow sky out of the water if they was allowed to bid for the rights
but sky and its premier league will be just about safe this time around because of clubs hands are tided
if they get the new law about clubs leaving gets voted in then nobody can leave and sky will be home and dry
everybody been fooled into thinking all the tv rights slots are up for sale and bidding has been invited ? but the truth is skysports slots are solid and and water tight and not on the table
the reason behind all this super league bashing from sky and BT-sports is when clubs would have left and signed up to the super league with a major internet company after a couple of seasons the amount of money they would have made from playing in the super league would have blown the clubs mind and they would demand changes in the uk and its broadcasting
sky would have been blown out of the water because the internet companies can offer much lower subscription fees each month and still make football clubs £billions. £7.99 a month or £80 a month its simple maths
but the top 6 clubs are not daft and you can bet sky will be used against a internet company to get a much better tv deal next time around and demand a big cut of the money from subscription fees
Yes, I was a bit surprised that Sky/BT agreed to that, unless they really were scared of the likes of Amazon and Disney. I felt had it gone to a bidding process that the deal would have been significantly lower given covid and associated financial issues.Haven't all the deals just been negotiated at the same rate as the previous one?
I'm not. ESPN are owned by Disney and haven't really shown any serious interest in the PL.Yes, I was a bit surprised that Sky/BT agreed to that, unless they really were scared of the likes of Amazon and Disney.

Klopp is utterly full of shit! City haven’t spent a net spend more than the TV revenue deal money since 2015 on transfers. We are self sustained and haven’t touched the Sheikh’s money for the team for years.Just reading this again from the CAS verdict Klopp in there predicting a super league breakout of maybe 10 clubs would be all our fault.
'If the richest people or countries can do what they want in football, then that could make the competition really difficult,' he said.
'I think that would lead automatically to a kind of world super league with, like, 10 clubs.'
What — the sort of league that Liverpool keep talking about, in those secret meetings with other elite members like Arsenal and Manchester United, that always end up being uncovered and reported in the media?
Meetings with foreign power-brokers, often American, who want to create a closed shop Champions League, composed of the established elite?
As for making competition difficult, Klopp went on to espouse the German vision of club ownership, a system so competitive it has resulted in Bayern Munich winning the Bundesliga title for the last eight seasons — when no club in the history of German football stretching back to 1903 had previously won more than three on the spin.
MARTIN SAMUEL - CHIEF SPORTS WRITER: This is not over. There is still a Premier League investigation into City ongoing. There is still a chance to pressurise.www.dailymail.co.uk
