Anyone following the fantastic Rabin account recently where he (or she) has took on the anti city media with style and professionalism well would you believe someone masquerading as a city fan has attempted to blackmail our good friend Rabin . What a fucking disgusting world we live in .
Blackmail? Fuck me the lengths some folks will stoop to. I'm not on Twitter so you will have to keep us updated
You can look at tweets .
It is disturbing how media like the British press and particularly the BBC are willing to lose all the built up respect over the years , by chasing the google dollar.
The Authorites Worldwide will soon be breaking up or drastically clamping down on FB, Google , Amazon and Instagram , these companies are abusing their power and more importantly , not paying taxes where they generate wealth, rather through offshore shell structures . Even Apple has had it's day in the sunshine.
Quite why a company like Sky can claim subscriptions for watching Sports content and still advertise is disturbing . In the UK , the BBC cannot advertise and is supposedly paid for by the license fee.
This is unfair competition.
Also , Why doesn't sky provide terrestrial channels like ITV and BBC are forced to provide .
Last season in Europe Sky somehow wangled the deal with UEFA to get Champions League footy , and with the BL for their games.This meant that nobody , or very few people in the large German speaking market could see CL and Bundesliga football without signing up to Sky . And guess what ? very few signed up ( Swiss and Austria have always shown Bundesliga until last season when it became pay per view). The company that bought the rights to show CL and BL in Switzerland went belly up mid season as many subscribers dropped them . In between they have been taken over by another telco company.
It's time to take back Football from UEFA and sky and time to declare the G14 as illegal. ( they are after all a Cartel ).
Similarly so, The premier league should not be a separate entity from the FA.
