Leeds Return Only To Go Away?

I know this is Premier League related, but think of it this way. When Leeds United make it back to the promised land of the Premiership, their first season could see them going abroad to play a fixture!

Jonathan Fear gives his views on the suggestion that Premier League games may be played abroad in the future.

Ok, we all know by now the proposals for making the Premier League a franchise and selling the game down the river in the pursuit of a few more pennies for the money greedy men who ruin, sorry that was meant to be run, the game.

The news for many came as no real shock, we as fans have been moved from pillar to post for years with ridiculous kick off times, late changes to fixtures to suit TV, new replica kits being introduced every other day (!) and a constant lack of respect to fans, we all have to sit down and woe betide any fan making any noise above a polite handclap, not to mention the very important health and safety rule that fans can't be trusted with the very dangerous bottle tops to their drinks.

However surely the fact that all 20 of the Premier League Chairman voted in favour of looking at the proposal to further erode the great tradition of the game proves that for once, fans have GOT to unite to put an end to it? If they can't see that they will be destroying football for the want of a few more pounds in their already swelling banks, then the fans will have to show it.

For me, if we franchise the game and start this world wide circus, I think I'll break my own heart and leave the Premier League and the club I love, it will be the straw that breaks the camels back as I don't think I'd want anything to do with it.

A few examples of the feelings of editors across the Vital Premier League sites are here and then below is a link to a petition set up by our Vital Arsenal editor. Yes, it is 'just' a petition, but we surely have to start somewhere? Sign it, send it to your mates to sign it, even the teams in the Championship, Cola 1 and 2 etc should put their names against such a move because what the Premier League starts, other leagues are bound to try to replicate in some way, shape or form. This goes beyond team loyalty and hits at the very root of OUR game.

Arsenal: PL Threatens The Essence Of Our Game
Villa Stick Your Global Brand Up Your ****
Chelsea: First overseas Premiership Fixtures
Manchester City: Selling Its Soul To The Devil
Manchester United: Overseas Prem Games? Please No!

Sign the petition here: Don't Ruin Our National Game

Other network and independent sites, PLEASE replicate this, publish the petition and spread the word. All individuals against the PL proposal, please forward to all your friends to sign.

(Published across all Vital Premier League sites. With thanks to Rocky for getting the petition set up.)
