    He agreed his salary and signed a contract to do a job, plenty of people do good jobs and get told that's what they're paid for. Despite getting bonuses in my job I never agreed with the principle, I took mine as I saw plenty of others getting them for doing f.a. In my experience most bonus payments are based on financial targets which can be manipulated or be achived by failing to do other tasks.

    They have positioned the payment as an additional non compete clause that was not in the original contract... Whether or not you believe them is a different story

    I still don't get the point? comparing him to yourself or us is just silly because I am not and neither are any of us the Executive Chairman of the biggest league in the world, I could not do the job and even if I could I don't have the job. Good luck to the bloke

    Don't believe I compared myself with him, more that I don't agree with the bonus system.

    Sky Sports: EFL agrees new five-year television deal worth £595m with broadcaster

    T
    he English Football League has agreed a controversial new television rights deal with Sky Sports, worth £595m.

    The deal, which runs from the start of next season until May 2024, is a 35% increase on the previous contract.

    But a number of the Championship's larger clubs feel it undervalues how much the rights are worth and will meet on Tuesday to discuss their next move.

    One senior club executive told BBC Sport: "The EFL has just started a war."

    The broadcaster will show 138 league matches a season as well as every play-off game and the Carabao Cup final.

    They will also show 14 ties from the earlier rounds of the Carabao Cup and the semi-finals and final of the Checkatrade Trophy.

    The list of Championship fixtures to be broadcast will include 16 on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with an additional eight to be broadcast simultaneously.

    Sky have the option to increase the number of matches to 158 in the final two years of the agreement - these games can only be taken from weekend games.

    It is understood that Derby County, Leeds United and Aston Villa are among the clubs opposed to the new contract.

    Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani, who also owns broadcaster ElevenSports, has previously criticised the current deal, saying clubs are not getting enough money for games which are shown on live television.

    'Unanimous decision'
    upload_2018-11-20_10-18-4.gif
    BBC Sport understands that the nine-member EFL Board unanimously agreed to the deal, including representatives of three Championship clubs, Reading, Brentford and Bristol City.

    The deal covers the Championship, League One and League Two, with the money split between all 72 clubs depending on which division they are in.

    EFL interim chair Debbie Jevans said in a statement that she will review how the league discusses future deals with clubs as a result of the concerns:

    "Concluding these negotiations has indeed been challenging, as is the case when managing a diverse group of stakeholders, and the board took on board the comments and frustrations voiced by a number of clubs and has committed to reviewing the way the League engages with its clubs to ensure that we move forward in a collaborative way in the future," she said.

    By comparison, the Premier League's three-year television deal with Sky and BT Sport is worth £4.55bn, but the amount Amazon paid for one package of games has not been disclosed.

    "The deal we have entered into with Sky, after fully testing the current market through our external advisors, allows our clubs the benefit of financial security which was an absolute priority for us throughout this process," said EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey.

    "It is a partnership that, as well as having the necessary financial benefits, provides the EFL with the platform to maximise reach and exposure for its competitions, alongside providing further opportunities for clubs to monetise some of those games not broadcast on television through a DTC offering."


    'They have just started a war' - Analysis

    Simon Stone, BBC Sport

    The EFL have stuck their necks out in signing this deal.

    This morning, I was told 21 out of the 24 Championship clubs wanted the EFL to ask Sky for more time, or even negotiate a shorter contract, to allow some of the issues - amount of money being paid, the number of times clubs are on TV, the mass streaming of midweek games - to be sorted out.

    Should this deal go through against their wishes, I was told by one senior club executive that the "EFL should not be patting themselves on the back thinking they have won and they should not see this as being done, because in fact, they have just started a war".

    Now the Championship clubs must decide whether there is any substance behind their rhetoric, whether they are willing to do anything to back up their claims of incompetence.

    A meeting is due to take place on Tuesday. The outcome will be very interesting indeed.

    I actually like the Championship. In many ways more than the Premiership, and I certainly dont hold anything against the clubs looking for the best deal in their interest. Especially when you see the disparity between them and the Premier League financially.

    The interesting part is that it appears the league struck the deal, and the clubs arent happy with it - could get very messy...

    I'm all for them getting as much cash as they can, but we've seen this before with ITV digital, is there a market beyond the fans of the clubs involved?

    Honeslty? I think there is, increasingly, but clearly also nothing like the market for the Premiership.

    I think a lot of people enjoy the Championship, like I do, just as a football fan.

    And I think when the league can attract the like of Biesla, its telling that its profile has increased.

    What sort of mug wouldn't, it fitted my financial plan and allowed me to retire at 54 and become the longest living male in my family line.

    How much does each club get from the Sky deal? I think they are missing a trick to gain a TV audience. A lower free-to-view deal allowing the BBC, ITV, etc to show many games on TV might draw viewers from pay-to-view PL coverage.

    Between £95m and £150m, depending upon number of games shown and final position.

    Which makes up over three quarters of the income for most EPL clubs.

    Latest Deloitte rich list shows we've broken the top ten. Two things surprised me. One I hadn't expected to overtake Juventus as they've recently being following the commercial approach of Man Utd and Liverpool. Two, the gap to Arsenal is smaller than expected, even though we had CL and they didn't. I suppose that Wembley revenue is a sign of what to expect in NWHL, where the corporate should be significantly more.

    It will be interested to see how long the stadium takes to make tangible difference to our player purchasing?
    I’m not expecting anything major for a few seasons.
