The ESL is collapsing as we speak. Even though the threat only lasted a few days (as of now), it's a warning that these owners care little for the significance of football for fans all over the world and would do anything within their power to change the structure of how football works so long as it resulted in them lining their pockets.
Carragher and Neville were mighty tonight, they really put into words how all football fans are feeling about this ESL situation and how vehemently opposed we are to whole thing. As Jamie said, there's still a chance that we can stop this thing from ever going ahead.
If you're looking for a decent book to read, I'd highly recommend Rivers of Power by Laurence C. Smith. It gives ya a plethora of insight as to the importance of rivers to inhabitants of Mesopotamia nearly 5,000 years (as well as all subsequent civilisations), how important they are to us nowadays as well to how they can aid us in the future.
Once I have these exams over my head, I'm thinking of putting together an idea for a Persona roleplay and the primary colour being purple. Be sure to let me know if you're interested in an idea, I'll be sure to tag as I think it out further.
