The use of television has been a source of controversy in the sport, but experts insist it offers a fool-proof method for determining whether a team is good at football or whether it is simply a collection of absurdly over-compensated, second-rate commercial brands with ghastly, vulgar wives, locked in a sado-masochistic relationship with a cretinous media that merely reflects a society that has taken its natural intelligence, its sense of perspective and its values and violently drowned them all in a bucket of piss.
Yup, that just about sums it up...
UPDATE: I enjoyed this from NewsArse too.
NASA ‘faked England 1966 World Cup win’
A leading ex-NASA scientist has gone on record to confirm one of the longest-standing conspiracies in the football world: that the American space agency faked footage of the 1966 tournament in order to imply an England win.
Dr Robert Wellington—who worked for the agency throughout the sixties and seventies—spoke out following ongoing speculation on the internet.
“We needed a practice run for the moon thing,” he said, from his home in Florida. “And the soccer world cup seemed just the job. We wanted to see if we could delude an entire nation that they could achieve something that was frankly unimaginable. And it worked perfectly.”
“But we had absolutely no idea that it would become a recurring delusion,” he added.
