Premier League sponsorless after 2017

Having been sponsored by Barclays since 2004, in 2016 the competition will be known simply as 'The Premier League

Good. I hated the fact that the league was affiliated with such an evil organization...

evil?!

Barclay's is one of the biggest banks in the world that practically control the world economy. They were complicit in the economical breakdown in 2008 and have been on several times found to be partaking in criminal organizations such as money laundry and fixing foreign currencies, but their managers and CEOs always manage to escape jail time with plea bargains.

Chelsea FC is in Fulham and should have been named Fulham City or Fulham United or Fulham Road FC because Chelsea is Fulham FC Neigbour and Rivalry.

Also Aston Villa FC should have been named Birmingham United FC because Aston Villa is in Birmingham and because there is Birmingham City FC.

also Everton is in Liverpool so Everton should have been named Liverpool City FC or Liverpool United FC.

what are you're thoughts on this.

To be fair to Barclays - you have to separate the 'divisions' - high street banking is ok :) Bob Diamond was the biggest problem and he's gone now :)

All Banks were complicit in the financial meltdown and it started in the US with sub-prime mortgages being bundled with other mortgages and sold as investment opportunities. The whole system is integrated so everybody from Andora to Zimbabwe were involved. Then came the rate fixing 'Libor' again all banks have been found guilty.

The whole problem with banking is the obsene amount of bonuses - this leads people to do silly things...

But the Premier League sounds fine to me. ;)

Can't remember who said this, maybe Frankie Boyle, but it's probably the best thing I've heard about the meltdown: "Bankers getting bonuses after the financial meltdown is like Bin Laden getting air-miles for 9/11!"

The lot of wall street and the CEOs of the big banks, Barclay's included, have caused more suffering than most criminals and tyrants in the world. They should all be in jail. Simple as that.

Blatter's replacing Karen Brady. When your owners have made all there money selling dildos and wank mags Blatter's experience of accepting something dodgy in a brown bag will be invaluable.
