2017-2018 Superleague Season

Recommended Posts

Blackhawk    799

The draw for the Superleague is taking place tomorrow. Let's not forget that the first 7 home game will be without fans. Of course we will play all our derbies in that time frame.

Superleague also will also vote on the league restructuring (14 or 16 teams), change in play-off format and the legal issues with NOVA.

So we avoid the bigger teams for our fan-less games? Wow.

 

-edit- Wait, isn't that just six games you listed? So we will have no fans vs Panathinaikos?

There will be one cup game somewhere in the middle that makes it 7.

But how did they fixed this? Hot balls? Balls with ridges? Hahaha

Ahh that makes sense. Too bad we didn't have more cup games that early. Especially since we'll probably end up playing some third division team.

Probably the same way Olympiakos got rid of all their penalties from the Platanias match.

So, according to reports, it seems the big 4 (Oly, PAO, AEK and PAOK) have agreed to eliminate the play-offs altogether.  Not sure what that means for this season, if it has to go to a league wide vote or what....but that's a step in the right direction.  Eliminating 2 teams from the SL is step 2 to getting the league on track.

We just got lucky with the draw. I really doubt the other big 3 would let PAOK manipulate the draw.

Good idea to scrap the playoffs, but I have a feeling that it's only a preemptive move to force NOVA to the negotiating table concerning the TV revenue. The league will have to vote on this and all the small teams will bend over to accommodate NOVA, since their existence depends on the TV revenue. it will be a step in the right direction to cancel the playoffs.

Does anyone here know,  how much money each club gets from the current contract that they have in place with NOVA?   Seems that nobody has that answer.

I haven't actually seen any numbers, just that they're trying to offer less for this season. I can't imagine that it's all that much money.

I believe it was 6 million each for the big 4,  and the rest of the clubs split the rest....those figures were prior to 2011.  When AEK dropped,   and PAOs fan base disappeared,  the number became 2 million.  I'm not 100 percent simply because it was a long time ago when I read this.

Start of the season is up in the air. During today's SL meeting:

- no TV contact with NOVA has been finalized
- no decision on how many teams will be relegated has been reached
- no decision if playoffs will be played has been agreed on

Basically it looks very likely that the season will not start on August 19 as scheduled. Like we did not expect that.

If we have a delay that ends with a decision on no play offs, we'll still end up with a longer summer break than before. Fingers crossed.

I'm surprised that this is even up for debate, though - were the playoffs always just pushed by the networks? I thought the league was in line on this as well...and that just the players/fans didn't like them.

The playoffs were dictated by NOVA that wanted to televise more games. However NOVA now wants to cut the already agreed TV contract by 18%, even though there is contract in place. The big 4 countered with the elimination of the playoffs if that was the case. The problem is that for playoff elimination and team reduction must be passed with 12 SL teams to to vote for it. The small teams seeing that 4 teams will be relegated are not agreeing. Not only that they say that if NOVA cuts the revenue by 18%, they want the big 4 to replace the cuts from their own pockets. In other words the small teams don't want cuts to their revenue and also team reductions.

The playoffs existed before NOVA became the broadcaster though, didn't they?

Let's face it, some of the big teams own the little teams in all but name. May as well make it official and have the money distributed transparently.

^^Olympiakos is the only team today that has the money to feed the little fish.   Going back over a decade PAO had Panionios and OFI in their pockets....now those days are over.  The mid pack and bottom feeders are getting more selling players abroad,  or holding on to them and selling them for a good price in the SL....lets not forget,  they make good money fixing their matches.....Those days Pash of controlling the putana teams are over.

They're offering 30 million to be split by 16 teams....under 2 million for each club,  that's a joke.

the schedule is very good for us let's go win the league ! 

The new business partners....Marinakis, the family and Alafouzos are becoming very positive for Panathinaikos!  You need more transfers to win the league, not happening as it stands.

Bizarre that an entire article would just consist of a link to another article.

Friday's Superleague meeting failed to resolve any outstanding issues concerning the start of the season as well as TV revenue. They set another meeting on Thursday saying that final decisions will be taken at that time. Why don't I believe a single word they say. I think it's pretty safe to say that Superleague will not start on August 19 as scheduled.

^^Why should it?  NOVA is taking advantage of the current situation....DON'T START UNTIL YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE!!!  Screw them,  offering 2 million a year....should be at least 7 million for PAO alone.  The rest of the putana teams should split 30 million....The top 4 should negotiate their own deal.
