Is it a Bluff ? (its a big gamble by the league) My own personal thought is both Carlton and Granada are English Media giants /hotels
and resturants: If they do renage and cause the failure/collapse
of the Nationwide/Premiere league they would lose a lot of customers.
(advertisers)( hotel guest) so its also a big gamble for them.
This is a pan thats been boiling for a while now with players wages going through the roof,£350 million for about 30 games (On Didge) as it was then Must have known this was unworkable at this price.
(waiting to find NDS hired chairman who signed On didge deal to bankrupt company)
