Thats a pretty accurate assessment except it's Sevilla, Villarreal and the other four clubs that made that proposal.
The Real and Barca deal would guarantee current income and only share whatever extra money the clubs managed to negotiate in any new deal with the television companies.
The consensus among analysts is that they could expect between 200 and 300 million euros more per annum than the current total of about €600 million.
Real and Barca would get 34 percent of the extra income, with 11 percent for Valencia and Atletico and the rest shared among the remaining 16 clubs based on their position in the league standings.
Nothing has really changed. Sevilla, Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao, Espanyol, Real Zaragoza and Real Sociedad are against the Real/Barca accord which has the support of 13 others, with only Malaga on the fence.
The final part of the article demonstrates the financial disparity between Real/Barca and the other La Liga clubs. If the study is as accurate as it appears, then change is in order...
A study published in May by Sport+Markt, a consulting firm, showed Real and Barca earned almost 19 times more from TV deals than the smallest clubs in the top division, by far the biggest gap among European leagues.
The richest clubs in the English Premier League, which earns just over a billion euros a year in broadcast revenue, earned about 1.7 times more than their smaller rivals.http://supersport.com/football/spain/ne ... ng_TV_cash
