Besides all that people started investing in premier league clubs due to internet rights, as that is the golden goose, being able to sell individual matches to overseas fans at 5.99 a go is where the real money is
Looks like their ultimate dream is fading though, with Spanish football set to revert to collective tv rights.

It was as predictable as it is ridiculous. Money to money. It was only a matter of time before Sky's monopoly was broken and the price went through the roof. Like you say, there is still plenty of untapped mileage in the TV market yet as well

there will still be a market for club specific live matchday coverage, and a huge scramble to ensure the slant of that coverage - 100 a month for MUTV anyone?

Collective is for the good of any league, though everyone loves to watch an El Classico the rest of the matches probably pull less viewing figures than Stoke v Sunderland

Internet rights from a point of law (i think, will check) would be outside any agreement

it was a syndicate of banks. which is why the fight to stop the takeover should have targeted banks. and not with pizza deliveries.

the glazers have, predictably, made a lot of money out of united. it's not my definition of success.

Venture capitalists via another leveraged buy-out. Just like they would if they were buying the RAC or my current employers. Or even Ms.Dodgers emplyers, who were previously a non-profit organisation who provided a brillaint and important service, paid staff well and ploughed the rest back into the firm. It seems that's not the right way to do things though. :shakehead:
