Video: Dear Mr. Hicks



Dear sweet Moses this is powerful stuff. Hollywood filmmaker and Liverpool fan Mike Jefferies, the man behind the Goal! trilogy, spent the week in Liverpool making this video as part of a campaign to let fans express their desire to see the club's American owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett, get the hell away from Anfield. Sh*t, he even got Ian McCullough in there looking like a moody Unibomber speaking his mind alongside the every day fans.

I know it's a business but damn, when the fans hate you this much you really have to question yourself as a man, not a businessman, as to whether or not what you're doing is necessary. Is your pursuit of paper really worth this much sorrow?

I'm surprised they managed to find that many Liverpool fans in Liverpool.

Wierd world.

"Greedy" US businessmen, balancing profit and loss: bad.

Billionaire Arab/Russian playboys throwing around a bottomless pit of cash: good.

Wow. TFC's fans can learn a lot about how to rattle a few cages from these guys. I bet they'll be making a movie just like this towards ML$E.
