Harvard professor Gene Genepool today announced that the multi-billion dollar sport of soccer, slavishly followed by billions of people all over the world will die out as a spectator sport within the next two years.
Professor Genepool told us that he'd carried out exhaustive research into internet contributions relating to the most popular sport on the planet, and concluded that, at this point in time there is very little, if any interest at all in the megabucks generating activity, and that its day as a popular sport was finished.
"I expect that people will get heavily into basketball," he told us. "Watching genetic freaks slam dunk a ball into a hoop in an auditorium that holds ten thousand privileged ticket holders, as opposed to a hundred thousand fanatical spectators seems to be the way the world is heading,"
In response, Donald Skoob, a shit shoveller at Salford University in the UK told us:
"This Genepool fellow is talking out of his arse. Just wait till the footy season starts again in August. The daft twat has based his research on the close-season."
More footy related fantasmagoria as we get it.
