Glazer Hate Getting Ugly

February 19th, 2010

A guy named David Gill, who runs the business side of Manchester United, is looking over his shoulder these days. 

An angry faction of United fans who believe the Glazers are ruining their beloved team with massive debt is growing increasingly vocal. And now some of these rebels have taken their protest to Gill’s house. The picture below is of a banner hung — without permission – at his home. It quotes Gill himself when he opposed the Glazers’ takeover of the club.

If the Bucs keep losing — and not spending — Joe would imagine many Bucs fans would become over-the-top furious. However, Joe does not condone defacing Mark Dominik’s home, and Joe doesn’t think Bucs fans would ever go that far.

They would just stop showing up for games.

    You mention here that basically you disagree with the europeans with there anti-glazer ramble…And how you believe this hate would lead on to buc fans (which in some cases already has), as much as I would like that to stop and seems like you would agree? (debt aside I am a huge glazer fanatic) because the word about there glazers ruining man-u and the bucs is non-sense IMO, don’t you think posting the euro gibberish on man-u makes it a bad idea considering how it could place a change of opinion and make fans jump onto that hate-bandwagon because of our rough rebuilding process?

    IMO, I think it’s a bad idea to post the euro trash talk on the glazer’s because of our club…How do you feel about that? Or did you already think about it and don’t care?

    And on a more positive side, Chucky likes Freeman.
    From ESPN chat:
    Dave (LV)
    The Bucs struggled this past year. What do you think of Josh Freeman? What would you do to develop him?

    I like Freeman. I liked him at Kansas State. I think he’s going to be a very good QB. He’s got mobility. He’s charasmatic. Stay away from the interceptions and master the offense. His upside is huge.

    Joe here,

    Ajay – Don’t think Bucs fans would ever unify and rally with anti-Glazer hate, or anti-anything hate, like they are in England. …It’s just not how fans roll in most U.S. cities. Don’t think occassionally reporting on what happens over there will do anything more than satisfy some curiousity.

    Joe is amused at the Eurotrash. They are totally freaked out by the Glazers for reasons Joe doesn’t quite comprehend, other than the fact they are colonists.

    It’s one thing to protest a complete and utter dirtbag, piece of human debris like Vince Naimoli. Last Joe checked — and he is not wont to monitor kickball at all — Joe believes the Glazers’ kickball team is winning.

    What’s the problem?

    All the protests in the world aren’t going to force the Glazers to sell their kickball team. It’s wasted time and energy of the highest order. If the hooligans are going to protest, why not protest something they may be able to change, like the food and beer served to the masses in Great Britian?

    Joe here,

    BudfanJeff – I watched Chucky’s 14 minute chat. Might post that later. …

    Chucky also liked John Parker Wilson.

    What would be more interesting to Joe would be if someone could find a player Chucky doesn’t like, aside from Michael Clayton.

    Very true Joe, very true.

    I wonder if the Glazers regret buying the damn soccer team? Id rather stick needles in my eyes than watch an entire “football” match.

  9. Joe Says:


    Joe used to do some work years ago for a businessman that knew the Glazers. Said businessman told Joe how much the Glazers liked soccer.

    This was before Joe ever heard of Manchester United.

    (Before anyone piles on, if Joe doesn’t like a sport, he spends zero amount of time following, watching or reading about said sport, doing his best to insulate himself from said sport. Rather, Joe immerses himself into the sports he enjoys.

    For example, Joe has never seen this LeBron James play. Ever. Not one second. Joe doesn’t do the non-basketball association. Last year Joe read a headline on “Wade wins MVP.” Joe’s first though upon reading said headline, “Who’s Wade?” For Joe, “Wade” means Boggs or Davis. Then Joe had to look up who this fellow was. Joe learned it was someone named Dwayne Wade.

    Additionally, Joe has no clue what a “birdie” or an “eagle” is in golf, and really doesn’t want to know. Joe would be hard-presssd to define “par” on a golf course, but Joe knows the definition of “par” is “even.”)

    Meshawn hated Chucky more than Chucky hated Meshawn.

    Very true as a player, until he got into Gruden’s face on national tv. Funny how bosses/coaches don’t appreciate that at all. I know mine would be livid.

    Lebron = probably the MOST HATED player in the NBA
