An apology on behalf of all Liverpool fans

Despite not having done anything wrong myself, I feel as though I must apologise on behalf of all Liverpool fans to all of you in America.
fficeffice" />>>
I’m sorry that some of the moronic ‘insert your own word here’ (they don’t deserve the term fans) that claim to support the club, decided that the best way to register their disappointment that Benitez is no longer the manager of Liverpool was to do something that will offend an entire country, and in doing so have sunk to whole new depths in their pathetic attempts to run Hicks and Gillett out of town.
>>
For those of you who haven’t heard, after the news broke of Benitez’s departure, a small group of imbeciles, who’ve been pied-pipered by some utter nonsense floating around on message boards and forums known to be influenced by certain fans groups/rabble-rousers, decided that their collective brain cell was due a rest and decided to participate in a flag-burning of the Stars and Stripes.

As Americans predominantly read this site, I feel as though I need to emphasise that these actions are the result of a tiny minority of idiots that believe everything that some of these bile-spewing fans groups tell them, regardless of the facts. They DO NOT represent the views of the majority and there IS NOT any anti-American hostility in Liverpool or the UK for that matter. I’d hate for anybody to think that there was.
>>
Some supporters groups are convinced that every single apocalyptic headline and doomsday scenario they read about Liverpool is the gospel truth and will not be convinced otherwise, despite all kinds of evidence to the contrary. These are the same forums that put the blame for every single thing at the door of Hicks and Gillett and absolve Benitez of any blame whatsoever. These fans are probably now sitting in total darkness as they believed the sun shone out of Benitez’s arse.

Liverpool as a city has always been known as being cosmopolitan. Its rich maritime history has meant that people of many different cultures and nationalities have always been welcomed and accepted in the city and by it’s citizens. The same goes for the football club. The club has always been proud of it’s global fanbase and I find the action of flag-burning to be completely at odds with the ethos of the club and it fans, and those fools that believe they are doing it for the good of the club are dead wrong.

With no local investors on the horizon, it looks as though the next owners of Liverpool will be from abroad. Bet they’re eagerly looking forward to dealing with xenophobic, flag-burning idiots. Actions like that only serve to portray the club in a negative light, attract more negative press and make the club less attractive to investors. Those who want Hicks and Gillett gone have scored a massive own goal.
>>
Some have described what happened as a ‘spontaneous reaction’. Utter Bullshit. Do you honestly expect us to believe that those fans responsible just happened to be walking past Anfield carrying an American flag and a lighter? And just so happened to meet a load of other fans carrying the same items? This was an orchestrated action discussed on certain Internet forums.
>>
Some are trying to excuse this action by saying the flags had pictures/slogans of Hicks and Gillett on. So that makes disrespecting the flag of our country’s greatest ally alright does it?
>>
Now that these militant fans have set themselves a precedent, what happens next when the club is sold and the ownership doesn’t go as smoothly as they want it to, i.e. The owner doesn’t throw hundreds of millions at the club without expecting anything in return? Will they progress to burning a United Arab Emirates flag? How about a Saudi Arabia one? That’s even got a passage from the Koran on, so that won’t offend anybody, will it?
>>
I understand the position of those who want Hicks and Gillett out, but there are other ways to do it. They have already put the club up for sale so really, until a buyer is found, there’s not too much anyone can do. Threats and flag burning are for extremists and terrorists, not football fans and definitely not Liverpool fans.
