My girlfriend is from Napoli and is a Napoli fan, I spoke with her father earlier who said Napoli would jump at the chance to join this and the owner has already spoken to people about joining, its inevitable that chairmen are going to want to do this, particularly as global interest in the domestic game is superseded by the SL.
This is a major issue, it's 15 for now but this will rise to 40 in a fully closed league and they will leave the domestic leagues and what then.
I hope you are right. But as it stands, 48 hours on from this shit show being announced, the only official comment issued in the name of our club came from Joel Glazer, on our website FFS.Yes definitely thinking of pulling out because of 1 or more of the following reasons.
1. we had a gun to our head and were forced to sign up
2. we weren't given enough time to read the documents, panicked and signed anyway
3. we were unaware entering a competition that you don't need to qualify for and gatekeep others out of is actually anti-competitive
4. despite making the decision to not post the Super League statement on any of our social media outlets we were unaware that the backlash would be severe.
The hierarchy of our club are not greedy like the other 11 they just misunderstood the situation.
