Reportedly City is getting out as well.  Seems like it could lead to a total collapse.

I read another team or two may be doing the same thing.

Glad to see this ill-conceived money grab running into problems. That said, I have no desire to gloat. I'm just too damn happy that the traditional structure and rivalries may stay intact!

All of the English teams have officially pulled out. Levy’s statement was as weak as you know what and I’m embarrassed to support a team run by a guy like him. 

It was never about furthering the sport, or fortifying the club or the players, or making things better for the supporters, this was all about Daniel Levy trying to make Daniel Levy and the rest of ENIC money. At least Arsenal honed up to their mistake and apologized. Levy’s a worm through and through.

It's over, baby.  Barca, in a blatant attempt to cover their as$e$ said they were leaving because their fans demanded it and they are all about their fans.  Don't these people realize how bad they look when they make statements like that?  I guess they are just money driven.

Props to Arsenal, who said they made a mistake and apologized to their fans.  Class there.

Woodward resigning
Angelli resigning 

Wonder who else gets the axe after this.

Even rumblings FSG might be looking to sell Liverpool.  I know Arsenal fans are dying for Kroenke to sell.

Crazy, but if the teams were going to get a $400 million euros to join,  I could see a club like Barcelona, that is in serious debt, want to jump at this.

As a fan of Napoli is Serie A, giving a big f-u to Juve, Inter, and Milan would have been nice. I mean, I do it anyway for no reason. Here I have one.

Well that took quite a turn rather quickly.  And here I was hoping to hear some more enlightened musing on the subject from Kornheiser and Wilbon.  I swear they tried to talk about it yesterday and it was like watching the chimps try to type out Macbeth.  It was painful at best and disgusting at worst.  Those guys, especially Wilbon, have devolved to become an embarrassment to crotchety old men everywhere.

Reports that the five English sides are facing probable sanctions from the league.

Also, another report that some of the teams involved may not be quite done with the concept stating that the execution and timing were bad but the idea is sound.  Since Real were apparently at the point on this gotta think that it's their comments.
