Where will it all end?

Post by Bear-Grills » Wed Sep 27, 2017 7:57 pm

Surely at some point this will destroy the game -as we currently know it- in this country? You can't keep shriveling the roots and expect the plant to flourish indefinitely....

And yet, laughably, Liverpool are complaining about Sky TV's plans to move their Xmas game ! Do they realise how hypocritical this makes them look ?

Did you read and understand the article?

At the moment clubs have agreed that for UK TV 66% is shared depending on where they finish in the league and 34% shared equally.

The proposal is that 35% of the international TV is shared depending in where teams finish in the league and 65% shared equally.

It seems to me that clubs should mirror the split according to the current domestic split so the proposal is quite generous based on the existing principle of money sharing.

But that view wouldn't make good copy so it's positioned in a way of unfairness so people can say 'I object, this isn't fair'

Did you mean to sound condescending or did it just come across that way? Genuine question - not looking for a barney...

Wasn't sure if I was reading it wrong as the article didn't seem controversial to me, as it was for you. So more of a question really.

But can see now how it could come across in a bad way as it was a bit blunt. But was dealing with all sorts yesterday in work and was in p1ssy mood, soz.

giveup giveup
