Least surprising development ever

I just had to steal this picture from the spoiler. Is anyone really surprised the Kaka to Man City deal fell through? Anytime you start hearing 100 million pound transfer rumors you know it's a bunch of garbage.

3 quick thoughts on the deal that never happened.

1. A team would be full of idiots to pay that much money to any one player. If you think Man City is just one Kaka or Ronaldo away from winning the Champions League, you need to stop playing Football Manager '09 and spend some time outside. And if you're going to pay 100 million pounds for a player, anything less than winning the Champions League is a complete fail.

2. A player would be an idiot to agree to that kind of transfer. Imagine the pressure of not only being the highest priced player in the world, but the pressure of trying to keep an asstastic Man City team out of the relegation zone. Sounds like a loads of fun to me. Also from what I've heard Manchester is a much nicer city than Milan.

3. Soccer fans everywhere would be idiots to support this kind of move. You know why I buy all my soccer jerseys straight from China off of E-bay? Because that 100 million pounds comes from somewhere. It's like trickle down economics, except instead of minimum wage jobs us average joes are left with higher ticket prices. And it doesn't stop at ticket prices. Shoes go up in cost. Jerseys not only go up in cost but they change every year so you need to keep buying new ones. Advertising on TV becomes more obtrusive, in fact everything fun about being a soccer fan gets a little less enjoyable. It's the reason the terrorists hate us.
