There has been talk in other threads about the cost and risks of trying to compete in the Championship, and how the current losses are unsustainable.
Maybe things are starting to come home to roost?

It's because I just wonder if Argyle will be in a good position in 3 or 4 years time to sweep in and be financially stable and step over a dozen or so (maybe more) cash-stricken current Championship clubs..
What is going on up there is absolutely unbelievable at the moment and how these club owners on mass are just gambling with their football teams. Of course while they're almost all at it, gambling makes even less sense because the playing field remains fairly level, just the debt gets ever bigger.

Most Championship clubs have sold their grounds to make "profits" to stay within the 3 year loss rule, they can't sell them a second time.
I wouldn't be surprised in the next 5 years or so we see a firm push by the Championship to move to a separate structure with their own TV rights, unless of course the EFL get their act together and sort out this financial crisis (fat chance of that happening).
