I wonder* if anyone at the FL has actually run any studies on what the impact of this is going to be:

How much money are is the FL collectively forecast to get?
How much will it cost to provide the service?
How much Sky will get out of it (more than the FL?)
What is the likely impact on attendances?
What are the different scenarios of new income versus lost income, and which ones are needed to ensure there's at least a break even?


And if the extra revenue more than covers the lost income, what will be the impact on atmosphere and the overall character of the game? Is it OK if there's enough TV income to play in empty stadia?

* but suspect the answer is 'no' - ITV Digital, [cough].


Då ska vi vända hem     Then we shall turn home
då vill vi dit igen             there we want to be again
Till det ställe som             To the place from
vi ifrån en gång kom     which we once came
     
För längtan finns             For the longing is there
hos folk som minns             in people who remember
Den tid som var             The time that was
finns i drömmen kvar     remains in dreams

This is my major concern.

The money men will tell us all that the income will increase and that HAS to be good for the game. Understandable perhaps but what happens when the next generation expect to sit in their armchairs and have no inclination to go to live games? Will TV keep paying out huge sums of money for games played in empty stadiums.

Just smacks of short termism to me and that is a thought that runs through so much of the schemes dreamt up in current day football

and the other problem that Chairmen will vote yes or go along with it as they will be sold headline cash figures and benefits to cause them short term gain blindness....come any detailed announcement it will be too late to realise they have been shafted.

Would that apply to 'non Chairmen' as well Moosey ? 😉


Why?
