Pretty vulgar, all this. The grand total is quite staggering.

Edit: I did try to format the numbers so that they were readable, but it seems to have failed miserably.
Second edit: That's (a bit) better

The stat I find the most amazing is that only 9 of Liverpool's matches weren't televised.

and the bottom 3 get 90m over 3 years on top of this? Plus what they make in the Championship?

They need every penny of it with the insane wages Premier League player contracts are these days.

The Guardian has produced an up to date guide to Premier League finances:

No wonder most of the clubs need ever increasing prize money. At least we remain relatively debt free although the figures are for the 2015/16 season.

Must be tempting for Huddersfield to retain their current 15 million wage bill, maybe pay them a promotion rise, and take the net 78 million with probable relegation at the end of the season. The incentive to stay up diminishes if you end up paying it all back out in wages.

It's an approach that's worked well in the longer term for West Brom and Burnley. Blackpool less so.

14 of our games televised.. still seems a luxury compared to the Championship.
