CEO of the year Winners
At the bottom of your post you say, with regards to the media, sky and bt etc ".....deepest apologies for not needing your money like the others do...."You ever hear the old saying “He who pays the piper picks the tune”
Well Sky and their faithful lieutenants in the media world pay the piper, and they damn well pick the tunes.
But there’s one problem, Spurs don’t dance to that tune.
We used to get applauded from the media back in the days when we finished 5th or 6th under Jol, Redknapp, Boas etc etc, and in turn the media would turn a blind eye to the occasional 4th spot finish from Harry, I say a blind eye, however they did try everything in their power possible to sell all our top players for us during that time, the British media’s coverage of Bale to Madrid was a disgrace to journalism.
Now that we finish top 4 (top 3 actually lol) on a regular basis the media in this country hate us, simply because we are doing this for almost free, we are certainly not reliant on their money to the extent of others, so in a nutshell we are the worst advertisement for their controlling money machine there possibly could be, with the exception of that Leicester City season.
But when it did come down to Leicester and Spurs in the end, they had no shame in tying their colors to the Leicester mast, in fact most in the media were quite publicly open about it, why? because they knew Leicester City would go away as quickly as they appeared. But Spurs on the other hand have stayed strong, and didn’t go away, infact we are still there, mixing it up with the £200m a season membership club, and by god the powers that be can’t stand that, and that makes me so happy...They can not handle the fact that if their money left the game tomorrow, many clubs would die a slow painful death, but Tottenham fcuking Hotspur FC would grow stronger and stronger...
So finally media controlling bitches, we are happy to play every 3 days over Christmas, we don’t even mind playing cup games at Tranmere on a Friday night 3 days after our last league game even with our very small, lacking quality squad (their words not mine) while the super strong “quality laden” squads of other clubs get as much rest as possible, not even after our grueling schedule at your request by the way, we still managed to put on a 7-0 exhibition for the British public, yet you still won’t acknowledge us, no no no, you now drag up the Y word argument yet again and you still try and whore our top players out to cream of European football (it’s so strange that you actually want some of the best players to leave this league).....So media, Sky, BT and the rest, sorry to keep crashing your top 4 club and daring to be in a title race, and sincere apologies for continuing to punch above our weight, and deepest apologies for not needing your money like others do.....so could you please go fuck yourselves with bells on, because this club is going nowhere, get used to it....#COYS
Only, we're more than happy to take that money like the others do.
We more than happy to extort the transfer market when selling players like the others do.
We extract higher ticket prices from our fans than all the others do
We pay our chairman / ceo a higher a higher packet than all the others do.
So I'm not quite getting what the moral of your story is, tbh.
