Uproar Found

   Previously, The Long Fly Ball posed a question regarding the absence of an uproar over the recent spending the Boston Red Sox have been doing.  According to an early report from, we have found that uproar.  However, it is coming from a bit of an unusual place.  It seems to have taken some time for the cries to be heard because they had to yell loud enough to be heard across an ocean.

It seems, the monumental deal that has brought Carl Crawford to the Red Sox has upset a large amount of Soccer fans in England.  That's right, folks. Soccer fans in England.

Recently, the Red Sox organization purchased the Liverpool Football Club. A troubled but very storied English Soccer team.  There were some thoughts that the organization would not allow both teams the financial freedom to field winning teams.  But with this recent signing, it is clear which team will suffer.

From pubs to PCs, Liverpool fans in England are voicing their frustration using Twitter, Facebook or word of mouth.  Chris Whelan, a 49yr old fan, said: "It's all very well spending all that money on a shortstop or whatever but we haven't had a decent left-back for 12 years."

At least someone is making a little noise about this injustice.
