image for England to change "three lions" badge
English football's new symbol

In a farcical attempt to steal more money from fans, the FA have decided to change the iconic three lions badge. Instead of the three lions, there will be a tiger, a cheetah and a leopard. All whom are vicious enemies of the lions. Disgusting.

A complete, and 100% change. To go from the lion, to its literal enemies, is almost blasphemous. And to add insult to injury, the FA are planning on charging fans 90 Pounds to replace the three lions badge on old shirts with the new one. And for new shirts, there will be no badge on them initially, however one has the mere option of the new badge, which will cost 50 pounds, on top of the original price. Givers and not receivers, the FA...

In any case, the money was not the main problem with the fans, it was of course the badge. One fan said,"It is not right. I don't want cats with fuck**g black marks and b***shit on them, I want the manly, rugged cats with the bare skin and with no marks on it." Another said, "I think it is pretty cool, the lion was getting old. It's just too 1966."

No more are the three lions the symbol of English pride, forever more the legendary Skinner/Baddiel song shall not go "Three Lions on the shirt...", but rather it will go "A tiger, leopard and cheetah, on the shirt..."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
