Leeds United Message Board
“The rebuilding of Leeds United is a bit like sex. In an age of instant gratification, Leeds United is having a long, drawn-out affair with plenty of foreplay and slow arousal.” Ken Bates
Apart from the unappealing image of Ken Bates having tantric sex, the statement above is revealing – note there is no mention of love or passion; or even buying us a meal and a glass of wine!
The statement is tantamount to him saying, as he rapes the club, “don’t struggle, don’t scream, no one will help you, you are mine to do with as I want, I will take as long as I like to do as I will with you, the doors are locked and no one will come to your rescue. When I have finished, you may complain but no one will listen because I will claim ‘our relationship’ was consensual and it will by my word against yours. As I have ensured there are no witnesses, courts of law will have to find me innocent as there is no proof of guilt”
The Freedom of Information Act has to be applied to football, without transparency all fans will be screwed by unaccountable owners – whether we love or loath them is irrelevant.
