93% of Newcastle United supporters, apparently.

From the Graun's article on St James's Park becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bonesaws-Я-Us:

Quote
Downing Street and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport have maintained a deliberately hands-off approach.

One mustn’t bite the hand that feeds one buys one’s guns, and as to the notion of our freshly-promoted Super-Twat Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport actually, y'know, doing something?  A prospect that makes the mind boggle on both pistons!

I'm hoping they've stopped discussing it by the time I get back in the office on Tuesday. It's a slim hope, but I'm clinging to it.

They haven't. It's international scale fantasy football for 'our team'. We've got hundreds of hours on who 'we' can buy ahead.

It’s seems to me that the one thing the Americans have got right with their ‘football’ is the draft system which stops the oligarch with the deepest pockets dominating from one season to the next.

I’m waiting for one of them to buy Arrington Stanley and promot them to the top of the Premier League.  ;D

Nooooooooo!!!!!!!

Just look at the English teams that were involved in the attempted ESL breakaway francise league.  3, or even perhaps 4 of them are essentially yankee owned and the other two are oil-i-garchs.  The draft works in yankeeland because there is nothing lost in being "last".  The entire rest of the world (nearly) plays sport on a basis of some meritocracy.  Obviously deep pockets can buy success but with franchises there are in effect no losers so very few incentives.  This leads in the capitalist shitstorm that we find ourselves living in to ever greater commercial exploitation.

Money buys success but monopolies merely lead to exploitation of a much wider consumer base.

I've finally drawn a line under 60 years of support.  Thinking of getting a t-shirt printed with "One of the 7%".  Oh, and guess where the Saudis get those guns...... and planes, etc.

I suppose if money can buy access to the government and their policies; better healthcare; better education; avoiding prosecution for law breaking.  And ways to avoid paying tax ..... corrupting football is minor league.

Is it arrogance or idiocy that leads this lot to utter such contemptible twaddle do you think.

Arrogance.  Pure arrogance.

They used the "deal" to get elected on a populist ticket.  Now they need to convince the very same gullible fools that all of the problems are deliberate malicious intent by the EU so as to ensure that they don't believe that the deal was either incompetence or convenience on the part of Frost&co..  As we know, if you say the message often enough then the radicalisation embeds itself quite thoroughly.  Just look at autocracies of the past 100 years or so ...

Quote from: Frosty The Wasteman
Most obviously, we no longer have an interest in coalition-building across the EU to shape EU rules.

While this may be technically true, it's only because you and your ilk expect the EU to accede to BRITAIN'S every whim.  And I'm sure I remember Midair Bacon describing the NI Protocol as a “cracking deal” and as one of the alleged bright sparks of the Conservative Party he couldn’t possibly have been in error.
