This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

It would matter less for the Big 4 leagues and France. by Shadyirish
Whether Liverpool or Arsenal got in could change over time, but it would still matter if the team that is in at the start is pulling in significantly more revenue and able to attract better players than the team that is out.. But for teams in smaller leagues, such as Ajax, PSV, Benfica, Porto, Olympiacos, if they don't get their slice of the superleague pie from the start, they will never catch up. They are already struggling to keep pace because they are in smaller national markets. They'd be even further down the foodchain if they weren't in the superleague. For those teams, where they start would probably determine where they'd stay.
