It is hard to see how clubs will be deterred in the future with a miniscule £ 20million fine; While the agreed-upon point deduction is certainly significant, one would imagine that teams would endure it on the basis of harvests of greater rewards once the breakaway league is formed.
Of course, knowing how the tide of public opinion would unleash once again on the owners, one imagines that few will be tempted to mount another blow so soon.
At the very least, this is good news for FSG at the moment, who will not be forced to pay the £ 15million fine initially proposed for each individual club.
