Of course, it was indisputable, and it was the logic adopted by Ashley, but it has always impressed me as a false similarity. As far as I know, there is no conclusive evidence of a team seriously demoting a domestic cup. There isn’t even convincing evidence that it necessarily makes the difference between the 15th and 16th finishes.
And the interesting point from Paul Bauer: “I think the Premier League was trying to find a way around the Saudi ownership dispute. If they didn’t allow it, the Saudis are likely to go to other leagues with their money. I think. “
The idea was raised elsewhere, especially by one of the lawyers involved in the acquisition, but I’m not sure if it reflects the Premier League mindset. Major League Baseball in the United States, at least externally, seems to think much more naturally and much more often strategically and collectively than Major League Baseball in Europe. Many Premier League members tend to confuse the best interests of the league with their own best interests.
That was serious. The trivial things come in the form of many inquiries about the correct pronunciation of my name. It’s Roar-Ee — it might actually be better to spell it that way — but try to get as close as possible.
Perhaps there were some suggestions that this wasn’t the best similarity — I’m not sure if the Leeds kids in the 1980s saw it that way, but my name is clearly pretty common. It’s a target — and using it has shown my own privilege. First of all: It wasn’t necessarily a serious example. But since I thought about it, I’m not sure if I would buy a privileged idea for this.
Some names are difficult for some to say. It’s universal. It crosses beliefs, colors, nationalities and everything else. And I thought it was universal to accept it. Of course, we all need to work hard. I take great pride in putting my accent in the right place. But we also need to strive to understand if people are sometimes in short supply.
