Remarkably, 76% of ‘big six’ club supporters now want their current owners removed, which is unsurprising following the big protests held by Chelsea and Man Utd fans this week.

There is clearly huge appetite for change, with 78% of respondents wanting to see this model adopted in England after the Super League debacle.
However, fans were more split on the kind of punishment the big six should face for their antics this week.
43% of you said you’d support deducting points from these teams, but 46.5% said they would not support that kind of action, with some comments in the replies explaining that that would hurt fans too, and the punishment should hit the owners’ pockets instead.
