5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
All 20 Premier League clubs were asked by Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck for a 250,000 contribution. 15 have agreed, 5 have not. The guy apparently earns 2.5m a year already and this would be a leaving present.

My view: Fuck off your rich enough already.

That bird Susanna Dinnage

The Premier League says its prospective new chief executive, Susanna Dinnage, has told the organisation she will not be taking up the position.


BBC

Wonder if someone told her the ironing is piling up?

Well some clubs are not willing to “gift” Scudamore anything. For my part I would say to Scudamore “which charity or worthy cause would you like me to donate to on your behalf”?

It’s almost as if the greed is good culture never went away.

If someone did a deal that earns my £100m a year I’d happily give them £250k as a gift.

I noticed that some big name retired footballers are up in arms over this. I have to assume they passed up their massive wages and bonuses and passed them on to grass roots football.

They should make him give it to the Brexit camp. Give the snowflakes something else to whine about.

Can't see why so many are up in arms about this? Let him have his gift, you can't say Scudamore hasn't earn't it. Some people earn more than others.

Change.org are running a petition to get Scudamore to give this money all to grass roots football.

you're right Ham BUT it isn't to the 100,000's of people that play and volunteer to run games week in week out. It means something else to them. Especially to the very brave people who ref junior and lower level games why they want to do it I don't know

If you pay to watch football it is your money they are giving him. Think about it

The 'scheme' is a cunt then.

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
£250k per club is one or 2 players weekly wage as a one off payment. Not much in the scheme of football money.

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
When you actually think about it, 5 million is fuck all in the crazy world of football - its a token gesture.

Yet it is obscene amount of money to give to most individuals.

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
Football wasn't created to be turned it to the cunt it has become.

That applies to what goes about on & off the pitch.

It sets the standard of how not to be in life.

I agree mate, It's vomit-inducing, but we should be used to it by now.

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
Cheers Westside - just my suspicious mind, then.

I think suspicion, is the correct posture to take, when dealing with these money grabbing bastards.

No need at all for this payment.

shit about grass roots football? where do you think many of the young pros start? everyone knows the FA are inept but it doesn't stop the Premier League from doing more

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
So the bloke is meant to say no to £5m because a load of people that he has never met, or ever will come to that, are pissed off about someone getting money that isn't theirs anyway.

Oh, and by the way all this shit about grass roots football is the the FA's domain NOT the Premier League but that's by the by.

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
another interesting story is currently happening at the PFA where new chairman Ben Purkiss is asking for an independent review of the organisation after discovering they've built up a £50m warchest. it seems £2m a year Gordon Taylor is very upset about the potential investigation :.)

Well I suppose you are right. I sort of meant that in business big company chairman get big pay offs from money paid by investors when they retire.

I thought he was retiring. But as he is not I stand corrected and it makes it a bit less easy to stomach.

Years ago I would've got angry about this but football went to the dogs years ago and nothing surprises me anymore.

Re: 5 million gift for PL Chief Exec Scudamore
I'm not sure it's quite the same, Russ. I agree that if a chairman or senior exec gets the push then the company will throw money at them to keep them quiet. But Scudamore left voluntarily. I'm not sure many companies shower non-contractually obliged money on people who just leave of their own accord.
