"The OWS protests have no focus. No goals. And because of that they are easily manipulated."
This is a mainstream media lie.
If you look up the general assembly or the "occupy" websites, you will see that there is a very clear and concise set of demands that people are happy to rally behind.
Folks - these events have been happening all over the world - not just in lots of American cities, but all over the UK and europe, South America and even as far away as china.
As for the football analogy - dick has misapplied boberts analogy, as boberts analogy is based on the idea of the players of one team being succesful against the players of the other. Dick is talking about spectators.
The OWS demonstrators are not spectators. they, and we are all players.
Working people are saying - if you want us to participate, you must renegotiate the deal.
It is very clear and simple.
