LONDON 2012 vice-chairman Keith Mills is spoilt for choice for new roles when his Olympic post comes to an end in December.
He is being touted for both chairman positions at the FA and the Premier League, plus head of UK Sport when Baroness Sue Campbell steps down next year.
WHY DID former owners Portpin suspend their bid to take over at Portsmouth again?
One big factor will have been the six-page letter they received last week from the Football League. After taking the club into administration TWICE Balram Chainrai & Co were told the chances of them passing the owners test were somewhere between very slim and non-existent.
PREMIER LEAGUE clubs will vote on THREE different versions of financial fair play this week.
The smart money is on some pretty fierce debate on Thursday.
West Ham and Sunderland are driving calls for restricting wage increases to a set percentage over a three-year period.
But it’s unlikely the necessary 14 clubs will back a concept which would dictate how they could spend their incomes.
Manchester United and Arsenal support a break-even regulation based on the income that clubs receive from the TV money pot.
Finally, there are calls to ban the kind of ‘assignment deal’ by which clubs borrow money by agreeing to hand over future central payments.
Everton have already signed over TV cash from NEXT season — and they are not alone.
Only Fulham are opposed to any kind of Premier League FFP and they will get their way, for a while at least, if none of the proposals get the required support.
OLYMPIC television bosses stand accused of treating the London Paralympics as a second-class event.
After the Games, Olympic Broadcasting Services removed from the Aquatics Centre the special cameras, which provided the underwater shots of able-bodied swimmers.
Channel 4 apparently offered to pay for the floor and wall devices to be retained for the Paralympics but to no avail.
A C4 source said: “The achievements of Ellie Simmonds are every bit as incredible as those of Michael Phelps, so why should the Olympics only benefit from the underwater cameras?”
Sources have also revealed coverage of the Paralympic equestrian and rowing events was also not as extensive.
