That's according to Chris Sutton, who believes that Premier League clubs involved with the European association need to face punishments over their controversial actions.
Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham have all withdrawn their support for the European Super League, which has been met with widespread backlash across the world.
But American investment bank JP Morgan, which was giving a £3.5bn backing to the league, has now pulled out of the breakaway competition and issued an apology.
Sutton, 48, now claims that an effective deterrent is needed in the wake of The Super League.
Speaking on BT Sport, the former Celtic player said: "I'd give them a 12-point deduction immediately and I'd give them a European ban for a couple of years.
"[UEFA president] Aleksander Ceferin called them snakes, well take the venom out of the snakes.
"Give them a European ban, let other teams come up and compete. Otherwise what is the deterrent?"

According to Sutton, a fine wouldn't impact clubs' billionaire owners unless it is a staggering amount of money.
And the BT Sport pundit added that it is time to "take away the power from these billionaires," saying they should not be "anywhere near the decision-making process."
Sutton explained: "If you expel them from the Premier League, they can go and set up their own other league.
"I think there are things which can be done. How do you punish a billionaire? I think we can fine the billionaires heavily and put the money into grassroots football, say £50m per club.
"What we have to do is take away the power from these billionaires. Don't let them become anywhere near the decision-making process.
"These six clubs didn't think about the other clubs. Take the power away from them."
