Poor Little Rich Boy


Silvio Berlusconi is a horrible person. He has done some really terrible things in his time, and has an ego that allows him to somehow justify it all. I generally try to separate his personal, political, legal and business affairs from his role as owner of AC Milan, even though they are unfortunately all tied together. But even then, sometimes it becomes very difficult to maintain even a shred of respect for him and his infamous pocketbook. Especially when he says things like he did yesterday. Silvio, it’s not enough that you buy strikers like Rob Ford buys crack, or that you sell important players when you actually bother to look at the club’s bottom line and realize you never could afford them. But then to alienate the fans who you say you want to keep coming to the stadium…. No one ever feels bad for that poor little rich boy, Silvio.

You couldn't possibly alienate your "customers" any more... could you?


"We are still the most titled club in the world, and we are already working on building the future Milan. I'm not satisfied with how Milan are playing. Not at all. Therefore we have to reflect upon this fact."

"I'm suffering a bit more than the fans are, because I'm the one who is putting up the money." (translations courtesy of @Milanello on Twitter)


Dear Silvio,

You sold our two best players and cried broke, and have refused to put more money into Milan. Don’t you think there’s a correlation between that and the fact that you are not happy with how Milan are playing? So until you actually are putting the money into Milan, why don’t you just shut your mouth and try to stop pissing off the fans, especially those of us who actually put a larger percentage of our income into the club and don’t have any say in who is bought or sold?

You continue to lament the lower stadium attendance, but instead of doing something about it, you open up your big mouth and push more fans away. Oh, and let's not forget about the rumors of you sacking Seedorf, because that cloud looming overhead is not helping anything, either. So why don’t you clean your own house before you throw rocks at the people who keep you in it? Nobody ever cares about a poor little rich boy.

Disgustedly yours,

Elaine
