Last time they did a deal, when the FL was essentially forced to sign up to EPPP in order to receive anything I think. Think it went to something like 2 seasons at £16m and 2 at £8m.
EDIT: Seems its currently £15m then £17m then 2x £8m. It came in a year before EPPP was agreed too, but I think the PL threatened to withdraw it.
Aye, the premier league blackmailed the league, threatening to withdraw parachute and solidarity payments if they didn't vote though EPPP. It was outrageous, they didn't even euphemise it, I was shocked at how little anger there was at the time.
