bet West Brom fans are delighted with that
 
So what will the Government say when fans complain that Opera is allowing Audiences and so why not football. What you worrying about all Premiership matches are on TV. But I support a lower division team. Well at least you can pay through the nose to watch televised matches.
In other words they will not want to know and fans getting back into the stadium is even further away.
 
I bet a fair few do pay it tbh.
Football fans should stick together and refuse to pay it then these money grabbing bastards will have to rethink
Sky & Bt are at it and always have been for every one punter that’s says no there will be 3 that will agree to pay it unless EVERYONE says no then it won’t change I rehashed my mums Sky package paying £34 per month reduced too £17 for two years.
 
How many comments start with ‘I can afford to pay, but...’,this is why football has become what it has; why our average fan age at a game is about 55 (too young?) and why Sky is still going. The bottom will fall out eventually, however, it will take longer than people assume.

It really doesn’t matter if you can afford to pay, that’s not the point. Millions can’t, they are unable to afford to watch a match on TV never mind going to a game (London and SE in particular). If fandom actually existed, we could have eradicated the appalling situation PL football is in (for English, some Welsh and a few PL Scots fans; the rest of the world gets it pretty good) The ONLY reason why the rest of the world watches PL is because English fans were passionate, fun to watch and known (Hoolies helped with this a bit I feel) and some smart arsed suits took advantage of this ‘pashun’. Great drama, theatre and a bit of sport in 90 mins.

if we all made a pact that we wouldn’t go to games, purchase BT/Sky (Especially before the world market really took off) then we would have football as we wanted.

But it’s all good as, well, ‘I can afford to pay, but...’

It's purely classist. Protect the culture that is "fine" and "fancy" whilst leaving working class culture spots like football clubs or night clubs/small concert venues to die.
 
It is the PL setting the £15, as I understand it BT & SKY are just covering costs.

Always willing to put the boot in but should be aimed mainly at the clubs for this idea
 
See Government are trying to pressurise BT to show Merseyside derby for free. Holding out for now. If they relent then it will; be open season for other matches to go the same way.

Yeah there’s call for it in Scotland as well for the old firm game.

You'd think they would be more likely to protect football, as its the bread and circuses for the masses that stops them thinking too hard about other stuff. At least that's the Roman theory
