Well, I give a fuck if smaller clubs go out of business and I’d imagine all the people they employ do too. I fail to see why anyone should lose their living because someone else wants every single game of football to be on tv.
As a kid I went to see Dover all the time and so did all my mates, we all supported other teams but we went because it was live football and it was on our doorstep. It wasn’t what got me into football, that was my family and watching Arsenal in the few televised games there were at the time.
But Arsenal wouldn’t have made anywhere near as much money from me, and thousands of others if not for lower league football. It’s what gets thousands of fans out watching games, it’s what thousands of families do together because they can’t afford the insanity of Premier League prices. It’s not worth nothing and it’s not to be chucked away just because you want it to be a bit easier to watch a game on a screen and moan that the fans in attendance aren’t making enough noise for your liking.
