European Super League Reaction With Rory Smith
Neil Atkinson is joined by The New York Times’ Rory Smith to talk about the European Super League, what it means for Liverpool and the rest of football…
Rory wrote on Twitter: “I don’t think it is necessarily true that national leagues are the natural conclusion of football, or that the Champions League (as it stands, or as it is about to be) is somehow perfect and unyielding. I think it’s important football has space to change and, ideally, improve.”
“But even to someone not unilaterally opposed to the idea, this one falls down in two ways. One is the permanence: not because it doesn’t protect the pyramid – the current status quo doesn’t protect the pyramid either, nobody on either side actually gives a shit about the pyramid.”
“But because the ‘pyramid’, here, basically represents the pretty basic sporting principle that attainment is a direct result of effort. You have to earn your spot, every year. The permanence of the 15 founders in a super league contradicts that.”
