  1. You are right. Really spot on. However the clubs are willing to let us use their badges, faces and kits. But for a price. It's a product they can sell. And computer games are a lucrative market. They will not sit idly by whilst their assets are offered for free without their permission. The fundamentals of the situation we are faced with is that the legality of the matter is undeniable. The hosting & distribution of protected player images, kits & logos is illegal unless the access and authority to do so has been granted. We might not like that. But I do not believe t
  2. I'll start as i started the other comment. I agree with you in principle with what you are saying. But. This is off the mark. FM sold over 2 Million Copies in 2019.

  6. I'll start by saying. In sentiment I completely agree with you. My fear is this - Juventus does lose a penny. Many a penny. Why? ...Because if the FM Community were not providing these resources for free. SI & The 'Football Manager' team would come under pressure to provide these. Many people (Myself included) in this thread have stated they would not be interested in the game without the Graphical & Licence improvements provided by the community. So without a community provided solution, SI come under heavy pressure from their fan base to acquire official licences. The
