5. OFF THE POST: Fan Appreciation Millwall-Style

Millwall striker Darren Byfield decided to connect with fans by entering MillwallOnline's chat room and offering to answer any questions.

Problem was the fans didn't believe it was really him, so he promised to send them a signal at the next game, kicking the goalpost twice before kickoff.

Then someone who claimed to be Millwall keeper Lenny Pidgeley began posting messages on the fan Web site. When he asked if he could do something on the field to prove it was him, a chat room denizen replied, "Yes, you could catch the ******* ball for once, you useless ****."
