Where would this extra money come from? The Premiership TV deal is worth ~1.5m per club per year, and that was a 50% rise on the previous contract.

It's hard to see that growing massively.

Nor is it likely that attendances will see big increases - only a handful of clubs are capped by the size of their stadia.

I agree, unless we stick to the salary cap and maybe introduce other levelling devices (independent academies with a draft structure?), then there will only be 2 or 3 rich clubs, another 4 or 5 break even scrapers-by, and the rest clinging on.
