They are still top 4 and know there is other ways to earn income so don't need to be selfish and crap on other teams to get back into top 4 unlike Liverpool. Really disgusted Liverpool want to do this. It just shows how shameful they really are and without the backing of the top 4 they haven't got a chance.

If you are so disgusted with the idea, then stop commenting on the subject. I'm also against this but that doesn't mean i'll start posting crazy sh*t.

liverpool is craping on other teams?

Yeah.. ridiculous wages and cheap tactics(etihad-deal), ain't these things destroying the league.

look at your own club first.

Crazy sh*t? You losing your mind.. As for cheap tactics.. Oh dear.. Like the deal united got for training gear wasn't cheap? the etihad deal was at least for a stadium people will see every time they visit a match and watch on TV. United got a separate sponsor for training gear that was a joke of a deal but yeah lets all have a go at City and ignore the obvious as usual.
