    That's not whataboutery or apologism. I'm calling them hypocrites.
    The Premier League was literally formed as a super league at first, but then they needed more teams to carry it.
    The initial offer from ITV was to 4 of the Super 6, plus Everton.

    What was the first thing the Chairmen of the 5 clubs invited to that meeting with LWT do afterwards?

    Oh yeah, that’ll be speak to the F.A., who then picked it up, the entire league was consulted and then collectively signed up.

    But yeah it’s a great piece of whataboutery to excuse the actions of the dirty dozen.

    I haven't excused anything. You're the one trying to excuse something, because it involves your club.
    It was a money grab then and it's a money grab now.

    @captain wrong 9 pages to go, don't say I don't try and help you out.

    Anyhow, I've been thinking about this closed shop stuff, and remembered decades ago the EFL use to run a closed shop itself, because it would vote on whether a team from the National League could be promoted in place of a relegation from Division 4 (L2).

    It was very rare for a team from the non league to be voted in to be promoted. The last one relegated under that format was Workington being replaced by Wimbledon.

    Good job I remember this ****te... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workington_A.F.C.

    In 1974 and 1975 the club finished second from bottom, and in 1976 they finished bottom, but at the end of each season they achieved just enough votes from fellow League clubs to retain their Football League status.[2] However, in 1977 the club won only four games all season, and again finished bottom of the league, with home attendances falling well below the 1,000-mark. This poor run finally led to the club to be voted out of the League in summer 1977, being replaced by Wimbledon.[28][29] Workington were the penultimate team to fail the re-election process before it was scrapped in 1986 and replaced with automatic relegation to the conference National; Southport, who were voted out the season after Workington, were the last club to lose their Football League status this way.

    Correction; Southport were the last relegated under the old format.

    Oh and btw lads @Tel @PINKIE

    Kroenke Jnr told the Gooners fan forum yesterday, that his father would take the ‘considerable costs’ associated with cancelling their ESL membership out of his own Co and not AFC.

    I wonder if we’ll ever find out what they are?
