The wealthy - the more they have, the more they want. More football/money for the big boys. Less football/money for the rest.

Greed rules yet again

...a ban on transfers between elite sides.

How does that work then?

Sounds like a s**t idea though, I don't watch the Champions League, have no interest in it.

Who knows how it could work. It's effectively saying to players that once you join an elite club then you can only be transferred to a lesser club. There is no way they'll be able to enforce that. One day in court and the rule will be thrown out.

Definitely not. They will lose a fortune.
