Thread Name: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
What we think has mattered a lot, actually. A huge amount of the outrage has come from football fans. Football fans own this game, not bloody foreign billionaires. They just own the clubs, and wouldn't it be great if they actually had season tickets. The latest is that all the six clubs have now pulled the plug, but make no mistake, this isn't going away. This is just the opening gambit from a bunch of wealthy cynics who don't give a shit about the fans, the fans who are the people who have made the beautiful game what it is. The same blokes who might be hailed as "heroes" for pulling out and wrecking the scheme were signing their clubs' souls to the devil just three short days ago, and they haven't had sudden moments of enlightenment. What they've had is fan power kicking them up their arses. What we think mattered more than anything.
