  1. European Super League | 14 Premier League Clubs to hold emergency meeting today

    Agreed except 90% of his statement is about money and how the pandemic has affected them.
  2. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    We are talking about the main American sports. Theres not much to disagree with. NBA for example has no grassroots play except basic pick up games.
  3. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    Yes people watch it but there is just not in anyway the numbers compared to playoffs. There are no narratives except basic rivaliies
  4. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    Sure but the difference is that there are narratives in football because of all the things involved both from a national point of view and a historical. In basketball there is nothing like that literally every game means nothing except rivalries between players and a few teams.
  5. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    It all depends on money. If all the money from sponsors and TV goes to the SL then it doesn't matter what the likes of Everton or West Ham do in the champions league the money will disappear they won't be able to run the way they currently do and there won't be any money to trickle down because...
  6. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    The biggest problem is that except from team rivalry there is nothing to talk about in the normal season there are no incentives for players to do well except just basic pride. In the regualar season there are genuinely no narratives to discuss at all.

  8. The 'I am looking forward to the Super League' thread

    Or people have looked at the most clearly corrupt sporting proposal in history and called it out.
  9. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    Yes regular season games in the NBA which I watch alot of can be extremely low energy almost like they are just waiting for playoffs.
  10. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    Remember that would only include the very elite level every other football level below that will fall apart and no longer exist grassroots football will be dead. So it's not about whether or not you can create a good tournament with the best teams it's whether you want to do that whilst killing...
  11. Sensible, non-hysterical ESL and CL discussion only

    This is where the merits of the discussion begins and ends for me. This is what some on this forum who want to support it are clearly hoping it changes but you have to realise this rule is intrinsically linked to the whole idea of the SL they will not change that clause its the most important part.
  12. Debating the pros/cons of the "European Super League"

    So the champions league?
  13. Debating the pros/cons of the "European Super League"

    Pros: glaziers get another couple islands Cons: destroy football at all levels except the elite level.
  14. European Super League | 14 Premier League Clubs to hold emergency meeting today

    Anything that means the destruction of football below the. Elite level is bad on every level and should be stopped by everyone
