Robbing the poor to pay the Bates'

Leeds United have been seemingly clever about the decision to go into administration and be relegated this year rather than risk going down and potentially start in League 1 minus ten points.
Little, however, has been made of their long suffering fans (not that sympathy for Leeds fans is a natural tendency), many of whom bought ten and twenty year season tickets which are now null and void. As the most minor of the clubs creditors these fans will be the last to get anything back and at that it will be a tiny fraction of what they paid only a year or two ago.
Leeds should take a note of Charlton's behaviour. The south London club are offering a free season ticket in 2008/09 (Premiership they hope) to fans who sign up for a Championship one now. Bravo.
