I’m not surprised by the reaction, yes Sky etc. Stoked it up as to be expected, but it’s the closed shop aspect that crossed the line for most normal fans. PBP got a similar reaction and that didn’t really affect sky, that wasn’t creating a closed shop, but they wanted special voting rights for 12 clubs, no parachute payments and the ability to veto new ownership. It wasn’t a closed shop in name, but it was an attempt to pretty much sew up permanent membership for 12 clubs, one of them bizarrely being Southampton, but not Leicester. The ESL was a move to a completely closed shop which was a step too far. I think most fans accept the money in football and that the bigger clubs are naturally greedy, but most accept that in the basis it’s in theory a level playing field. The elite trying to shore up wealth for themselves made from previous generations of real fans was always a step too far, Sky or no Sky.
