This is the world we live in. I agree that professional sports should be an outlet from the stressors of everyday life. I look at Twitter during the work week and see thousands of average people arguing about what 22 millionaires are doing on a football pitch. The lines between reality and pro sports become blurred, and often times the public tie too much of our identity and ethos into a professional, money making entity, in which they have no control or say. It's fascinating to watch. It's an interesting cultural and psychological study, really.No-one should feel that their identity and well being is this tied into a football club. Nobody should be disgusted at anything to do with football (unless it does cross over into the real world), and certainly not whether a manager chooses to sign a new player or not. It’s too strong a word for something that is meant to be fun.
Too many people are taking this far too seriously. The fume over signings is simply mind-boggling. As it’s now at the point that winning the European Cup at getting the third highest points tally in league history can’t persuade some fans that people at the club know what they are doing, and are deserving of their trust, I think football is broken.
As for RedForever, I do respect his stance and his opinions and I wish he wouldn't have deleted his account.
