Doing FA for common sense!

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Its water-pistols at dawn methinks. 

A couple of kids are name calling in the playground, it seems that's what football has degenerated in to. Don't get me wrong, I love football. I do begrudge the high wages but at the same time I recognise the skills that are on display.

So what's happened to bring the Fruitball Association into disrepute. 

The inmates in the playpen of the Fruitball Association have become embroiled in the cloud-cuckoo-land that is Twitter. Footballer Rio Ferdinand, was charged with bringing the game into disrepute by the Fruitball Association after acknowledging a tweet from a Twatter follower earlier this month. The Tweet on Twatter described Ashley Cole another fruitball player as a “choc-ice”. I kid you not, the Fruitball Association has its knickers in a twist, because Rio Ferdinand acknowledged the tweet on Twatter.

Now, when I was at infants school, and someone called you a name. You gave them one on the nose and unless observed by a teacher that was the end of that. If a teacher saw the altercation you were both drawn to one side and warned about the consequences of any further fisticuffs. No one bothered about what the names being bandied about were. No one cared about who said what. Well unless it was a very naughty swear word. At that point you had to have a lick of the soap bar by way of washing your mouth clean. 

To put it into perspective: 

First, of all I think that the Fruitball Association should spend more time on more important issues around the game of football than reading comments on Twatter. 

Second, Twatter is full of Trolls and this sort of reaction will bring them out in droves. This is just the sort of reaction they are looking for. If you don't know what a Troll is, have a look on the CanalWorld Forum there you will find a good selection to pick from.

Third, Real football fans think its you bringing their game into disrepute and into the realm of fools. You need to get out more. If you choke on the word choc-ice. Go to a football match, have a meat pie a cup of bovril. Listen to what's being said in the various chants and songs.  I am sure that given enough time you will get over your collective apoplexy. One day you may even come to understand the game, its players and the fans. 

Football, can't continue without the teams, it can't continue without the players, it can't continue without the fans. It can however continue without the Fruitball Association and the megalomaniacs in charge of the playing field. 

Give me strength....
