Dutch star Robin Van Persie made waves in the soccer world by announcing his intent to reject a new contract offer from Arsenal this week. RVP will be out of contract at the end of next season and this decision for all intents and purposes will bring an end to his time at Arsenal sooner or later. Van Persie made it clear in his statement that the ambitions at Arsenal (appearing more frugal as a "big club" compared to the likes of Man City, Barcelona, and Real Madrid) did not match his own ambitions. Van Persie led the Premier League with 30 goals last season, but it was another season without a trophy for Arsenal, who haven't won a competition since 2005.
Why does this matter to you? It matters because this guy, KSIOlajidebt (who appears to be something of a Youtube sensation), has made one of the great fan rants of all-time. If you want to imagine the pain on display below, imagine being a fan of any team that has seen their star player leave for seemingly greener pastures - Toronto and Chris Bosh, Cleveland and LeBron James, Orlando and Dwight Howard, etc. Imagine your franchise savior in Minnesota, Milwaukee, or Cincinnati leaving you for the Yankees. Except, Arsenal is supposed to be a big club, not a feeder for the big spenders. After all, it was less than 10 years ago when Arsenal went an entire EPL season undefeated with The Invincibles.
All of this leads to what is a fantastic eruption of volcanic proportions. Our friend KSlOlajdebt not only rips Van Persie, his statement, and his ambitions... he drives a stake through RVP's heart by quick selling him from his FIFA 12 Ultimate Team. That'll show him!
ESPN has gone from being a rock solid sports network in the 80's when they were a young and hungry sports network showing college baseball that no other networks would even consider. Now they have morphed into a glitter and glitz Hollywood style production. They have become so arrogant they the think nothing of creating their own stories out of ersatz information and touting certain teams to the point where it gets into the area of actually influencing the outcomes of the very contests they attempt to report on. Very sad indeed.......
i stopped watching espn when i got access to the league channels. espn focuses on 4-5 teams in each league. you arent going get in depth analysis on the padres starting rotation on espn. but you'll hear about a-rod not having enough change at dunkin donuts all day on espn.
