Setting Yourself Up Here Laddie

This is the sort of thing that can trigger an investigation you know:

A senior executive at one the Premiership's 'big four' clubs told Observer Sport last night: 'There has been no formal discussion between clubs about this, but when speaking generally with other executives I sense there is certainly a feeling of "no more on player wages, otherwise where will they stop?" In negotiations, we now have an element where player representatives point to the new TV deal as if it is more money for the pot to pay player wages. That is not going to happen.'

Collusion leading to the creation of a monopsony. Tsk, the EU hears about this and you can all be fined 10% of annual turnover.

Don't they tell people about the law any more?
