Replace 'government' with 'league' and you've more or less got yourself the basis of how the NFL is run.
I am astonished that a consortium of the leading clubs - Portsmouth, Sunderland, etc - has not (yet at least) requested the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to investigate this anti-competitive proposal by the EFL.Weybridge wrote: ↑Wed Jul 15, 2020 11:00 amHow does a 'rich' club lure the best players with a wage cap? Five year contracts as the norm? Hugely inflated signing-on fees? Massive promotion bonuses? The last two will be monitored by HMRC, so you'd risk retro-active fines and points deductions.
All I can think of is the long contract, and potentially some dead wood on your books.
They're ridiculous proposals aren't they. I can't see them standing up to legal challenge plus today I read somewhere that they are already talking of postponing it by a year.Locky_McLockface wrote: ↑Fri Jul 17, 2020 1:30 pmThe more I read of these proposals, the less I like them.
Clubs relegated from the Championship will not immediately be subject to the wage cap, meaning that they can keep their better quality, better paid players, thus giving them an advantage in L1.
Furthermore, if a club does not currently have a playing budget of £2½M, an owner can top up from their own funds - loading the club with debt, which is, supposedly, what these proposals are trying to avoid.
What is wrong with the EFL?
I wouldn't have an issue with this if we were able to cancel the deal when we are re-established as a Championship club ourselves and we then get our own feeder club.

I can foresee a situation where this accelerates the lower leagues just being feeder clubs for the Premier and Champ. For example, Chelsea make a deal with us that they loan is 6 of their U21's each season and we guarantee then first team football.
