Christ, you are over 18 an throwing about words like 'LiVARpool'

Disappointing

I used to think this was a glory hunting thing (maybe it is in some cases, I dunno) but then I read a Dan Dennett thing asking what logical compulsion someone is under to support their local side and I thought 'meh, true' and stopped caring

I don't because I don't care for things like football or rugby or that stuff in the first place. I mean sure if you throw a ball at me I might play with it but apart from that, I know jack about teams. to me, that gives me the freedom to just appreciating the skill of the best players. Even then though, I tend to just watch random clips that pop up in my feed and then be done with it.

Well football is a sport for snowflakes but used to be worth watching before 2016 I'd say

Football is fixed in LiVARpool's favour. Massive profits generated from them winning the Prem

Seen it and I don't. The mancs and bitters that populate my friends lists refer to him constantly, and even most of them know it's balls, they're just trying to get a bite

I don't disagree. It's an overpaid mess and extremely corrupt
