We, sports fans, are having our experience of watching our teams play spoiled by cheating. This site is dedicated to changing the way sport is played, making sport more honest in this professional era.
18 DAYS ONLINE, 1330 HITS, 140 SIGNATORIES, 5 SPURS SITES, 1 TOON SITE, 3 GENERAL FOOTBALL SITES AND 2 NON-SPORTS SITES AGAINST CHEATING, 5 CHEATS NAMED AND SHAMED, 1 UNPRODUCTIVE MEETING OF THE I.F.A.B. INVOLVING RULES ABOUT MASKS, ALL PREMIERSHIP CLUBS CONTACTED WITHOUT REPLY AND STILL ONLY 1 ACT OF SPORTSMANSHIP SINCE 2001
MOST OF THE HITS COME FROM PUBLICITY ON SPURS SITES, IF YOU ARE A SUPPORTER OF ANOTHER SIDE AND COME HERE PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD THROUGH COMMENTS AND ARTICLES ON YOUR SIDE’S BLOGS AND NEWS SITES. WELCOME, TOONS, TO THE GOOD FIGHT.
If you care about the way sport is played; if you care about the values kids learn from watching cheats prosper; or about our most public display of ethics and principles in society today then please, please, PLEASE: SIGN THE PETITION AND SEND A LETTER. It will take 6 minutes, tops (I timed it).
This can only be done through pressure on associations, sponsors, teams, players and the way the media reports it. But only if we care enough to make them change.If we are willing to spend around 2 hours a week, in some cases more, on watching our games and supporting teams doesn’t it make sense to take an hour a week to force a change. Ultimately sport and our support of it is used to sell us stuff.
If the sponsors believe we won’t support cheats and will boycott products connected with them, they will not sponsor those players. If the associations, teams and players start to believe they will lose sponsorship they will stop cheating.
Who is with me?
I am starting on football, specifically the English premier League, but you don’t have to be a football supporter to sign the petitions page or boycott sponsors of cheats, just a sports fan.
Things to do:
(1) sign the petitions page
(2) email the FA (‘send a letter’ page)
(3) email barclays, sponsor of the Premier League (‘send a letter’ page)
(4) tell everyone you know who is sick of cheating to do (1), (2) and (3).
(5) boycott products that back cheats (sponsors wall of shame)
(6) write to those sponsors telling them of your boycott.
(7) link to us from your weblog, write about cheating, increase the pressure!
(8) spend 15 minutes a week sending more emails to sponsors and the FA.
