Both Norwich & Watford promoted to the PL after one season away thanks to the Parachute Payment system skewing the Championship.
And if Bournemouth went up via the Play Offs then those parachute payments would have totally done their job, All three who went down bounced straight back up.

Maybe it would be an idea for parachute payments to be stopped if a club goes back up at the first time of asking? Why would they need the extra money? Maybe this money can be filtered down through the divisions instead?

Since when have those greedy beggars wanted to part with any more than they have to? In their case charity certainly begins at home.

I think that parachute payments are paid for three seasons after relegation but if, in that time, a team receiving them is promoted then their payments stop. The "saved" money is distributed amongst the Premier League clubs rather than filtered down to the EFL.
