This is, well, bad.

The EFL agreed to a terrible TV with Sky and now it’s all gonna kick off.

The deal give each club £3 million a season for TV rights, despite some decent TV numbers that would suggest that a greater sum for each club could be obtained, and the deal pales in comparison to the almost £100 million that each Premier League club gets from their TV rights deals. And yes, the Premier League TV deals include international viewing, but the difference is stark.

How serious the Championship clubs are about the being upset about the terrible deal, but it sounds like we’ll know more later today.

On to the links.

EDIT:

This is pretty much what I image a meeting between the EFL brass and the Championships clubs will be like:
