Bubble Buster

Two big snippets of footballing news this morning.

Broadcasters have warned that the value of television contracts will fall dramatically if proposals for a "whistle to whistle" ban on gambling advertisements, proposed by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling, are introduced.

and,

Rangers owe more than £20m - the highest borrowings in Scottish football - according to figures highlighted by Kieran Maguire, a lecturer in football finance at the University of Liverpool that show British football clubs owe more than £3.5bn to banks and owners.

Will the football bubble burst? £3.5bn of debt that has been left to get well out of control, how many clubs especially in England are living well out with their means and no offence to any specific club, but acting like a 'Big' club when in reality they are a decent sized 28-30,000K home support at best.

TV has been picking up the cost, reduction on the way.

He won't walk away.

As long as the club needs support, he'll keep putting other people's money in for as long as he can.

Is anyone really surprised rangers have the highest borrowing in Scottish fitbaw?

Thought it was fairly obvious and common knowledge

To be fair, you're talking about six minutes of ads in a whistle to whistle ban. It's hardly dramatic.

Just before the start - 3 minutes of betting companies.
Just after full time - 3 minutes of betting companies.

This is a gimmick from the betting companies. Nothing more.

Maybe it’s just me but I don’t see the borrowing as a problem for any club so long as they have the means to pay it off

Not so sure - these slots will be the most expensive as they have the biggest audience. Vast majority of people watch the game then switch off / over.
