What I fear the most is to see Lady Gaga on teli sliding down a rope from a helicopter hovering above San Siro.

I will certainly not watch that Super League shite but the virtue-signaling that's going on right now on social media won't do it for me either.
Instead of the Champion's League, we'll have to recite some Chicago's kid's slam poetry while taking a knee

Every other week will be some trans-related paraphernalia stuck to our neon pink kits. We'll have to play the finals in nothing but boweties and suspenders to rid ourselves of our toxic masculinity. It will be brilliant

My mindset so far

Pros
1. More entertainment value, you get to watch more top tier teams and players compete.
2. The 12 clubs get richer. Most of them are already richer than the clubs around them, and if you add Bayern and Ajax to the equation that?s around 60-70% of the total UCL wins ? It?s a pro here because I?m a Milan fan tbh.
3. Because there are no real consequences for losing for the tournament after, teams should be playing with a more offensive mindset, again more entertainment value.
4. End/limit/counter UEFA and FIFA monopoly.

Cons
1. It?s bad for football in general, specially smaller teams and younger unknown talents.

Ouch.....
"Why aren’t UEFA and La Liga salaries public? Why haven’t salaries been reduced like everyone else during the pandemic? We need more transparency. We know the salary of LeBron James but we don’t know the salary of the UEFA president."

Former Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi said he hopes the Super League ‘will be shelved’ and claimed ‘football is part of the human race’.

The 75-year-old helped Milan win two European Cups and one Scudetto during his time as a coach in the fashion capital.

The Rossoneri hero doesn’t agree with the breakaway tournament formed by 12 European giants.

“Football is liked because it belongs to everyone,” Sacchi told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “I don’t like this, because football is so beautiful for its universality.

“It’s popular because anyone can practice it, it’s part of the human race. It’s difficult to find such a universal sport.

“But it has three great opponents: stardom, business and the balance sheet.”

Sacchi said he’s not worried about the future of the game, as he doesn’t believe the Super League will happen.

“No, because I hope this project will be shelved, but I don’t hope for a compromise. Half solutions are useless.”

I would like it but I don't want us celebrate a win after 10 losses in a row because that's what will happen.

this is why Europe will never get out of its recession. People there are too resistant to try new things

This thing hasnt even started and leaf is already playing the victim.
Lol

Anyway, this is a terrible idea. Gonna be some hypercommercialized nonsense, its gonna take all the good david v goliath stuff out.
Americans will probably gobble this shit up cuz they love watching snippets of sports between their commercials, but yeah this is silly.

Also takes out a lot of David vs. David, and that's part of what's making people upset

Glad it’s dead. Seems like curly and city pulling out forced everyone’s hand. This was all the American owned clubs pushing it. They never understood relegation and how finance in football is tied to success
