Don’t disagree with that. I completely agree that it’s also a balance of affordability but no more so than choosing to spend an afternoon at the footy verses the theatre or cinema.It's not a bargain to anyone who used to go to football before TV money drove everything mad. It's not always a bargain for people who have to balance other commitments against following their team.
Premier League football is a bargain for people who want to want to smooth over corrupt gains. But that just applies to owners, not supporters.
