Soccer protests

Nope, I dont get it.
Why all the uproar over Brit football teams joining a league? Because they apparently then immediately did as the fans wanted and UNjoined?

I mean, I know it is FOOTBALL. (Aka soccer). And fans are rabid. Err...intense?

But the teams have already backtracked? Shouldnt you be settling down again and not fighting with police at the stadium? Like, you won? Stop protesting? It is not the game?

I dont even know why it was such an earth shattering thing in the first place? As far as I can tell from here players get traded all the time, borrowed, loaned, new combinations for special competitions? All the time
Teams play different teams all the time. There's Cups all the time!

Were you worried that your players would get tired playing in some other league & not do well at home? Is it money going to some other league for those games? Is it...is it just anything Euro is triggering?

I dont get it? 🤷

Ok, I do get some of the "Americans bought the team?! Yargh!"
But. Yeah, these things happen. Yes, it sucks. It is sports! Sports are about cash. Reality check.

But the rest i dont get.
