The European Super League is simply too dangerous for the future of the sport

Fans? outrage was justified after Juventus joined other top European clubs to announce the new ESL. You saw it all over social media on Sunday evening as words including ?disgraceful,? ?greedy? and ?disgusting? trended across football Twitter. It is pretty clear this is not a completely unpopular opinion, but I think it needs to be said as much as possible.
The decision to form a European Super League is just dumb.
It?s bad for competition, it?s bad for fans and it could even be bad for players as the possible long-term side effects could ruin careers and clubs as a whole. The decision certainly does not come as a surprise because we know how much rich club owners love their money, and while the line on some of the decisions should be drawn much sooner, taking down the game just to make an extra buck should be an easy no.
The current system may not be perfect and we certainly know the current governing bodies aren?t anywhere close to perfect, but I have no idea how someone thought this would be the right solution for club football in Europe.
And do you know how bad an idea has to be to get fans on the side of FIFA and UEFA" Because I didn?t even know it was possible to see this much support behind those federations.
I won?t dive too much into the details of the league?s formation because there?s no doubt you already know about it if you?re reading this. You can find in-depth info here. So instead, I want to run through just some of the many reasons why this money grab could have a negative effect on the sport we all love. The first is the most obvious and could be the most detrimental as parity among some of the top leagues in Europe continues to dwindle. I hate a lot of the negative talk around Serie A as much as the rest of you, but even with Juventus currently sitting in fourth, we cannot pretend the league is as competitive as it should be from top to bottom. And that?s a growing theme among all of the top leagues in Europe.
If you take the 15 teams committed to the ESL ? 12 confirmed and three more expected soon ? off the list of domestic league champions, it?s hard to find many among the remaining clubs.
In Italy, there has not been a league champion outside of the three clubs joining the Super League since 2001 when Roma claimed the title. A season hasn?t happened in Spain without Barcelona, Atletico or Real Madrid winning since 2002 (Valencia) and Dortmund is the only other club to win in Germany since 2010.
And yes, English fans, this is even affecting your league, too. There have been plenty of jokes made about where the teams currently sit in the table (Sorry Arsenal fans) and even more about clubs without silverware joining a super league (Sorry Spurs fans), but when you put the jokes aside, even England can?t escape the lack of parity among league champions.
Since 1995, there has been just one non-big six club (Leicester City) to sit atop the Premier ...
