ed002 this is a money question for you if the league continues and finishes. will the clubs be out of pocket i know there is talk about behind closed doors games so there would be lose on gate money but do you see more games being on tv to pay for, am from Grimsby and see somewhere today that they could stream games and am sure a lot of lower league teams have very loyal fans that seem to follow through thick and thin. am sure all the big clubs would make there money from games to. Do you see this as some way to cover the money maybe even team packages so say I could pay so much for all of Liverpool's last 9 games, and same for all clubs through out the leagues. I know you have said they want to finish the season but it does not look like there would be much chance of fans being at games and I know we need to avoid the psg game where fans turned up outside grounds but if all games where on tv am sure that would help and hopefully a bit of common sense would come through as well and people would want to stay away.

{Ed002's Note - Everyone is bound to be down on the money to some extent. I would think few teams in the lower leagues could realistically stream games but to do it in low quality would be easy. Else they would need to bring in an OB provider.

The problem with playing the Premier League games behind closed doors, even at remote locations, would be staffing, players in close proximity and of course fans showing up. It does not take much to imagine thousands of Liverpool fans showing up in Nottingham to be outside the stadium when the win the league. It would be nightmare for the overstretched police and give potentially serious medical issues.

FIFA have relaxed the rule that allow games to be shown at 3PM on a Saturday. The Premier League could then auction the remaining games that are not covered by existing contracts - that would likely cause an issue with Sky and BT so they could then possibly get some freebies and the rest be auctioned to Amazon, BT, Sky, BT and anyone else interested. There ould be a significant push to make these games freely available so the income would be limited - but there would be some.

Common sense is not something that many football fans have.}
