Monkey, soccer or journalism news?
>Romanov goes bananas with new tirade (The Guardian)
This one hits three of my five primary interests: Monkey news, soccer and journalism. (Missing: Cat pictures and BSG.) For background purposes, Vladimir Romanov is the Lithuanian owner of the Scottish Premier League club Hearts. From the story:
“Addressing the media, who Romanov has taken to describing as ‘monkeys’, the Lithuanian declared: ‘Today I will express my opinion in English about refereeing in order that your Mowgli will not make you tell lies,’ he said. ‘To discuss whether referees take money or not is the same as discussing a woman who gives herself with no love. Isn’t it better to concentrate on the standard of their work instead of looking for reasons for their poor performance?’”
A toast to Vladimir Romanov! Your indecipherable rants make even our most outspoken professional sports franchise owner seem like a shrinking violet.
