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.
