    Renegotiate the deals then, no need to build a bloody new stadium to do that.

    It wouldn't halve the rights because the games that would be lost would be nowhere near half the audience, you'd simply have bigger rating (and more attractive) games left. 12 teams would leave plenty of room for expanding, much more so than the current situation, and I don't think that the...

    Would it though? A smaller pie with bigger slices? And would the pie even be that much smaller? Plus the clubs it would hurt the most wouldn't be an issue anymore, as they wouldn't be there. I don't know, I'm merely asking the question.
