A total disgrace - continue paying millionaires their tens/hundreds of thousands a week (delete as appropriate) when they are doing money and furlough staff paid a fraction of that to get money off the government.

I'm sure when these measures were announced they were not intended for this purpose.

I'm also sure no footballers at that level will be furloughed

Ridiculous isn’t it. But then again it’s no different than any other company with huge turnover, profit and fat cats at the top table furloughing staff.

And also why are footballers any different to any hedge fund manager or billionaire?  I don’t see our city bankers being asked to take pay cuts to bail out an under funded NHS

I suppose the argument is that City bankers are now having to earn their crust. Presumably they are working.  Footballers on the other hand are still being paid but haven't kicked a ball in anger for several weeks and aren't going to be doing so for several weeks more....

Don’t forget that these footballers will be making a major contribution to the national purse through HMRC. Swings and roundabouts

I don't think the outrage is really to do with the fact that overpaid footballers are still being paid for doing nothing, it is the fact that some clubs have furloughed other staff to get government money whilst doing so.

Interestingly Liverpool, one of those clubs, has done a U turn (after severe criticism from their own fans) and announced they will not be using this process.

I  appreciate that and if there is anything good to come out of all this it will hopefully be that we all realise that the society we have built relies on an awful lot of hard working, not too well paid people to keep the rest of us safe and comfortable.

The markets should be suspended.

The very fact that they are earning exuberant wages means that the Tory party should be targeting them publicly just like they’ve targeted sports people.

And what about all the Tory party donators with billions in the bank?  Will they be contributing like all the sports donators?

Apparently National 2 clubs who can make the move have been contacted. I'm hoping its the same for N3 so we get the fixtures sooner rather than later.

I can confirm that clubs at Level 6 have been contacted, too.  Been told 'expressions of interest' need to be submitted by the end of next week.

I would say that City Bankers will already be paying their share through PAYE whereas most Premier League footballers will have complicated company structures to minimise theirs. The last thing the government wants is Bankers and high earners to stop working as you lose all the tax revenue, 40% above £38k and 45% above £150k plus the NI  on top
 
...................and by the way when did this  become a political thing?

You don't think that City bankers will have "complicated company structures" to minimise their tax liabilities too?

I'd say city high-fliers are likely to still be working, even if from home, whilst footballers haven't 'worked' for weeks.

The structure was confirmed in a link to a Twitter post from Hants RFU on this thread about three weeks ago:

All pretty clear, but, unless I have missed something, what are the three windows?
