This article is fine if you ignore the fact that the reason most Premier League clubs still have plenty of money is because of the way that the Premier League has systematically stolen money from the rest of the football pyramid over the last 30 years. Shared gate receipts? No. A league-wide TV deal? No. EPPP? Thanks for training up those youth players, here’s virtually no money for them! Football League Trophy? You don’t mind if we parachute in our youth teams to completely undermine your competition designed solely for small clubs?
Fine, some lower league clubs have wealthy owners but the whole pyramid is fundamentally rotten, part of the blame lies with greedy club owners who have run up debts and can’t cope with a rainy day, but the lion’s share of the blame lies with the way that the Premier League has been doing everything it can get away with to distort the competition since its inception.
As with football, so with life. You see this sort of poor-blaming attitude in life too, ignoring all the things that stop the playing field from being level.
