Subject: RE: BS: The reason I stopped watching football (UK)
Third umpire has ruined test cricket in much the same way 20/20 has deskilled players in the first place. I'd hate to see football go down a similar path.
Mind you, before having a go at young players who are told that winning is more than important, (if Man Utd slip too far down, they can, thanks to a contract with a sponsor in the States, be bankrupted, and there is being corporate and being corporate..) then at least look at the real problem with football.
Are there enough prisons to go round once their gravy train finally derails? It's one thing to say kids learn to dive, but with FIFA, they can learn corruption, sexism, racism, homophobia and how to get excited by brown paper envelopes.
