So it looks like the big clubs owners knew this would get a bad reaction and are pushing ahead anyway. Now personally i like the idea of a more sensible and competitive PL, although there are concerns about how much money would be available, and i'd expect some turmoil with salaries and the like when the new lower value media deals are inked. However two things would be catastrophic - firstly the rest of the football pyramid would be royally screwed, and numerous clubs will go to the wall. Secondly international football will become on a par with football at the Olympics as far as legitimacy goes. Enough top players will choose the money of the super league to take all the shine of world cups and the like. But then, the FA and UEFA are also to blame. They saw dollar signs and welcomed outside money with no vested interest in the cultural underpinnings of these clubs. They knew these people were simply buying into a money making opportunity. And they welcomed them, without adequately safeguarding the history of all the clubs whose futures depend on the status quo. They are all guilty of creating this too.
