The Football Attic's 'Worst Thing About Modern Football' - The Result

After eight weeks, five rounds and nearly 8,000 votes, we can finally announce that The Football Attic's 'Worst Thing About Modern Football' is...

Greed In General!

(Who knew?)

As predictable and logical as it might seem, the lust for money that pervades the modern game only just snatched a win in our Final with 53% of the votes cast compared to 47% for the runner-up, 'Rebranding / Ignoring Club History'. Suffice to say that many of you were torn between two such emotive issues and the final voting reflected their significance in the minds of the modern-day football supporter.

It goes without saying that 'Greed In General' was always an early favourite to win, and it lived up to its top billing with strong victories in each of the rounds leading up to the Final. It's also interesting to note that 'Greed In General' and 'Rebranding / Ignoring Club History' were the two qualifiers from Group B in the Third Round, and even then, the former only just received more votes than the latter.

So with that, we draw our 'Worst Thing About Modern Football' contest to a close. We'd like to send an enormous 'thank you' to all of you that took the time and trouble to vote and for making our informal competition such a great success.

Now go back to watching Premier League football on satellite TV while wearing your expensive replica shirt... it's the only decent thing to do! :-)
