Richard Scudamore Takes Big Stick To Championship Over Parachute Money
Published May 17, 2013
STANDING ROOM ONLY: In London, Charles Sale wrote before the two main proposals could be debated, FL Chair Greg Clarke "read out an email he had received from the all-powerful Scudamore" at 9:30am -- just two hours "before the start of the club summit." Scudamore, who had knowledge of the two plans, made it clear in his message that if the talks advanced, the increased PL solidarity payment offers -- worth £2.3M ($3.5M) per season to Championship clubs, £360,000 ($551,052) in League One and £240,000 ($367,000) in League Two last time -- "would immediately be off the table." The news of Scudamore’s intervention "caused pandemonium," with Crystal Palace Chair Steve Parish saying he was "appalled" by such bullying behaviour (DAILY MAIL, 5/15).
