Ceci Pas Une Permiter Sign Board
I don't want to toot my own horn, but I am a LEADER in the football writing world. My audience of twenty looks to me as a voice they can TRUST, not a voice that will shank them around like a Gerrard strike into Row Z, or yell at them at a press conference or something. Some ask if me if I'll ever sellout, and I say, you kiddin'? NEVER!
I mean, yes, it's true that footbo.com is the world's leading football friend network, but I'm not going to peddle a website just because some guy emailed me or something!
And what of it if I exclusively purchase my football-related gear from SoccerPro.com? Sure, they may have politely asked me to review their products at no cost to myself, but that's what we call in the business a happy coincidence. It's called Serendipity, and the movie-version was totally awesome.
Sometimes I think to myself while listening to Five Live on a special Five Live widget that allows me to listen to Five Live on my website whenever I want, available now at www.bbc.co.uk/fivelive, how could people be so callous as to cave in to commercial demands?
Sure, it would be easy for me to give into the almighty dollar, (not that I need to now that I pay such low low prices to watch football at http://www.free-football.tv), but some of us have higher priorities in life. So the next time some bozo says, AMSL is a phony website that is out trying to make a buck rather than tell the truth about football, you tell them 'f*ck off,' and go download the greatest podcast known to man, The Guardian Football Weekly hosted by James Richardson.
Note: Jokes aside, prods mentioned get nuff respect. Especially footbo.com, but especially that Five Live widget dealie. Don't send me hate mail. Word up.
