There is something fishy about this whole Super League thing

Did they do this as a stunt knowing it would never happen anyway? Why? I think mischief is afoot

it smells like a PR stunt, aye
porbably to wangle more money for the big teams somehow or get a format they like for the CL
well it was fun anyways

Don't think they expected this big a reaction. Leagues, Uefa and Fifa sure but not their own clubs fans, managers and players being 100% against it and governments getting involved

Florentino and others have said they expected massive backlash. They are all well co-ordinated. To think a bit of twitter rage and a couple hundred people outside the stadium will change anything is hilarious to me
Keep inhaling that copium

UEFA was secretly behind it to make the UCL reforms more palatable.

4 D chess, announce a horrible move to cover up a bad move

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if something else was behind it

It did come out of nowhere and there's no way they didn't know about the backlash, because why else wouldn't they tell the managers and the staff until the last minute?

Maybe they did this, so in a couple of years thye can introduce a half super league, which people might accept because it's "not as bad as last time"

No way. They had it all set up and ready to go. They just thought the outrage would be less and that it would go away after a few weeks. Twitter tards getting angry and few small protests is all they expected I bet. Instead they get the Neviller declaring war and governments intervening.

It didn't come out of nowhere. It was known months ago but at that stage it was only a plan. The outrage came like a tidal wave when people realized oh shit these cunts are actually doing this.

There's no way it wouldn't get leaked if they did that so I guess they valued a joint message more than everyone being informed

Not everything is a conspiracy, sometimes powerful people are just retarded.

Because he's the hero Europe deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector.

A dark knight.

Well the head of these clubs still own the clubs, right?
They could unironically start killing football from the inside now. Making the product even more expensive, pricing out fans, making it boring, more bullshit like VAR

So football becomes a husk, everyone is fed up with it, and then they reintroduce Super League. But they say it's the only way to save football. They say they'll reduce ticket prices. TV subscriptions will be cheaper. They'll promise al the good stuff. People will bend over. Then after a few years, they reintroduce their original plans, and super league is live again.

i think some of the owners actually wanted it, but they definitely knew it could be a bargaining chip to push UCL reform/concessions (which is exactly what happened)

They got the concessions anyway, they got them from the mere threat of the super league months ago. Then decided it wasn't enough.

>>1 My guess knowing BlackRock who owns Jp was
They tried to set up a salary cap based league
They knew euros would fight it
Now its rejected

They will buy up all talent.

I’d easily believe the whole thing was a bluff for bargaining, but that wouldn’t explain Woodward resigning

Oldest move in politics. Make a wild proposal nobody but lunatics want. After everyone's lost their shit over the proposal, reign it back in to the intended proposal you wanted which will go through without nearly as much dissent as it normally would. Goys fall for it all the time

Real 5D chess thats ended with a CEO resigning, a governmental inquiry into football ownership, a loss of influence at the ECA, and all their fans hating them. Absolute masterstroke from the geniuses of the super league. They don't even have the super league leverage anymore, they can't threaten it now everyone has seen them back down.

yes goy, push for the Super League, there will be no repercussions

That's because the "football pyramid" has no power outside of England and maybe Germany. Serie A and La Liga are bound to lose money and viewers because their product is simply inferior in every way possible so the big teams from those countries are trying to save themselves, especially the Italians
