MOST COMMENTED

“This is an utterly outrageous ripoff. Football used to be a working-class sport but it's been commandeered by greedy corporate interests. The FA has clearly lost touch with reality. The country is in the grip of a cost-of-living crisis and they should rethink this decision."

-- United Kingdom Member of Parliament Chris Williamson on England's Nike World Cup 2014 replica jerseys being priced at 90 pounds ($150). (Derby Telegraph)

    Dear Chris Williamson, Your FA is in bed with Nike. Please do not purchase an official replica kit. Instead, please buy the HK knock-offs readily available on the street corner for 10 lbs. While we law-abiding citizens do not normally condone illegal behavior, the economics of this monopoly transaction have been approved by your FA and you should in no way feel obligated to subsidize the FA's fat deal with Nike by purchasing an official kit.
