    Thanks for posting. Is it just me or is the Derby Telegraph website desperately slow ?

    It bombards you with so many adverts that I usually have to give up before getting to the end of a story.

    Thanks for the info, Sawl. Has it been trouble-free for you ? I'm a bit wary of what I load onto my laptop.

    whilst I am not Mr Morris' biggest fan in the way he is running his train set I totally agree with his stance on this - it is a major source of income yet the clubs are not allowed any say in how it is negotiated or to even know the terms - that is preposterous - I know it is about us getting a bigger share of the pie ultimately - the next nudge towards premiershit level 2 - which I totally am against but I think he would win a legal challenge- what business would be forced into agreeing a contract with out knowing its terms - madness

    C'mon Mel.....

    The acrimonious battle between Derby County and the Football League about TV rights took another turn on Wednesday with claims from the Championship club that they are gaining considerable support from other clubs.

    Derby chairman Mel Morris, who was denied access to the TV contracts, wrote to every League club to ask for their backing as he seeks more transparency from the EFL.

    Derby say that the growing list of clubs lining up behind them now includes Wigan, Cardiff, Fulham, QPR, Preston, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Leeds and Charlton


    Mel Morris wrote to every league club to ask for backing as he seeks transparency from EFL

    And they claim that those backing the EFL from the Championship are so far limited to Blackburn, Norwich, Brighton and Brentford — the last three of whom have representatives on the EFL board.

    Morris believes the £90million-a-year deal with Sky that runs until 2018-19 with the option for another year is poor value compared to Premier League riches and offers no premium for exclusivity.
