    In the meantime, we end up with a really competitive domestic league, which I think would be a lot of fun.

    Yea I agree I think it would be terrible after 3/4 years of exactly the same matches. The CL groups are already dull enough half the time with the same boring match ups each year. Just look at how upset/demoralized Arsenal were by getting trounced by Munich every season. Imagine that on a weekly basis for some of these clubs.

    fudging obscene.

    He should offer it to charity. He wont, of course, but if he had any shame he would.

    Bloke deserves the money he gets, taken the product from a £1bn deal to £5.5bn, overseas alot more than just sitting there and picking up his money.

    The Salary and Bonus for me are both deserved.

    I've got no problem with that, but it should come from the company, not a gift from the clubs.

    Clubs and company are one and the same with the EPL.

    I think?

    There is a separate stream of “partner” money though, that doesn’t flow too the clubs so cash shouldn’t be flowing the other way.

    It’s a bit harsh on the likes of Cardiff, Brighton and West Ham who have barely been in the PL.

    I agree in principle. It’s up to any organisation to decide how to reward its employees. I can’t help think though that he should have been bonused for performance as part of normal remuneration rather than this golden handshake.
    From a PR perspective it’s been badly managed.

    Daniel is happy though. Cue utrage.

    It's like having to put money in the collections in work even though you don't like the fudgers.

    I'm guessing he'll actually get £4.75m, and the promise of a cheque being in the post.

    Levy is probably paying his share in installments over ten years, with a payback clause if Scudamore takes up a similar position in another league.

    Only because the press have managed to grab hold of it and twist it round but ultimately the whole thing is proportionate to what he oversaw in terms of growth. You don’t sit at the top of the biggest league in sport and oversee all that it entails and not earn for it.

    Conflation of the two is wrong IMO, if he was running the FA it would be a different story.

    Arsenal should pay for it after his “performance”’on THAT day in May 2006! The tosspot.
