Television money is making relegation from England's Premier League an even bigger deal

Things we have in the United States that you won’t find in England: Gun possession, drive through liquor stores, comedy that’s not dependent on puns.

Things in England but not the U.S.? Monarchs, grass court Grand Slams, and promotion-relegation, which is becoming an even bigger deal in the Premier League because of television money.

Now listen to Simon Carr for three minutes.
