Douchebaggery by the Numbers


It is difficult to quantify the levels of douchebaggery at Milan this season. But that didn’t stop me from trying. Ahead of our final match of the season, I wanted to put some stats together for you to demonstrate some of the atrocities fans have endured at the hands of our beloved club this season. Even though numbers do not truly do justice to our pain, it helps me to see that my pain was not imagined. Where actual stats were not available, I have offered my best guesstimate, which is not a guarantee of accuracy or even sanity. I give to you Milan’s Douchebaggery by the Numbers:
