I see Sky won the rights for all but one of the EPL TV deals, paying something like £1.7bn in the process. This was an increase of 5% on what they last paid. I really thought in these tough times that Sky would have made an attempt to bid a lot less, which may in turn have helped curtain the madness around the money and wages in the EPL. But alas. We will continue to see the footballing world leave the ordinary supporter behind, and the wages and transfer fees continue rising.
