Super League collapse shouldn't stop Farhad Moshiri's call for huge punishment

Should these brazen, opportunistic, self-serving clubs be let off scot-free? Should they cancel their Super League subscriptions and be welcomed back to the Premier League like nothing has happened?

Deduct them all 10 points - would make a very interesting league table then

Er... small technicality: they never actually left the Premier League.

Sorry but I just can't see the rabid desire for retribution being assuaged, amongst the calmer heads of the ruling bodies, sepecially if the reaction proves to have been strong enough to force a complete climbdown.

Sometimes just the intention can be enough. Surely some sort of deterrent may be acceptable?

Of course only if the rules allow it, the rules they seemed quite happy to flout, and to stymie with their pre emptive injunctions.

Michael, exactly. There will be no retribution. It will suit EPL, UEFA and FIFA to accept whatever nonsense the prodigals come up with. It really is a great game and I don't me football. Just a bit of testing the water, probing and seeing what's what. Round one is over and this is the most outrage they will ever face. I predict a win on points a bit down the line.

The power of the dirty dozen can, and should be taken away from them. Never again should these clubs be allowed to blackmail the football world ever again.

I will let the authorities decide on whatever punishment to be meted out but punished they must be.

We need to be clever about the punishment so that we increase the divide between the oligarchs who don't need the cash and the other American backed retards. Some discipline is required but we need to be sure not to increase solidarity in their ranks.

And as long as we are handicapping this action, I say we will see a full face plant from the greedy bastards. It may roll out as some rotation at the top but make no mistake it will be fully appreciated for the failure it was.

If I try to murder my wife and fail dismally, should I be allowed to say sory and be exonerated. I think not!

The simple fact is that the odious owners thought they could steamroller this and have now been shocked that the world does not agree with them.

I am incensed at the role of Perez at RM. He probably dreams of the day when RM ruled Spanish football with th collusion of their fascist dictator, Franco. Rumours of how they beat challenging Spanish opponents by sending heavily armed police into their opponents changing rooms pre-kickoff

No mercy to the traitor clubs, and examples must made of these clubs, and they are made persona non grata within the world foot ball hierarchies, as they can’t be trusted.

All the traitor clubs, to pay fines equivalent of what the EPL would have lost in revenues, banned for 7 years from Europe, banned from all youth football, and docked 50 points and sent to the non leagues if they contest their punishments.

The punishment must fit the crimes, they must be hit hard, and learn a lesson, that this brinksmanship and contempt will not be tolerated.

Heavy fines and points deduction and remove the voting power each club has as a member of the PL. They should no longer be allowed to wield any influence.

Pass legislation to prevent this from ever possibly happening and by statute make them share at least 50% of any CL revenues they receive with the football pryamid. Makes the PL more competitive. Reduces the gap between the Championship and the Premiership and gives the CL clubs a bit more financial certainty because if they fail to get into the CL their revenue loss will be at least 50% less (a "problem" they said they wanted fixing by giving them guranteed status in the Super League)

The Greedy Six clubs owners are not 'fit and proper' people to be making decsions on the future of the Premier league.

These subversive and secret actions of traitors prove that as an absolute fact.

A new charter needs drawing up fast that all must sign up to. Made by all stakeholders bar the Greedy Six.

It must ensure greater fairness in the distribution of money.

And any benefits must be as a result of sporting merit and nothing else.
