"Fulham later responded to Hangeland's statement via Twitter."

Nobody at Craven Cottage has this guy's phone number?

Not quite as impressive as Brighton and Hove sacking Poyet. Maybe they should've gotten Hangeland to do a press conference, then release him.

I like that we're still pretending email is somehow an invalid form of communication for certain things.

Apparently, being released by a team requires a call on your rotary phone or possibly a telegram.

Honestly, who wouldn't rather be fired by email? Saves me a trip to work, plus no walk of shame.

In major sports, you are supposed to at least have the class to call the talent up and tell them you need to discuss their future with the team with them in person, hold the meeting, thank them for their time with the team, shake their hand, and personally wish them the best in their future endeavors, *then* send out the e-mails informing the media that so-and-so has been released by the team. Doing otherwise might send a message to the talent that everyone else is nothing but a set of numbers to the management.

Yeah, my work fires people first thing in the morning. It's really shiatty, because then they have to clean their desk in front of everyone else.

"Hangeland" is a actually derived from an old Norse phrase, which roughly translates to "He who is of proud of Viking heritage but for some weird ass reason was born in Houston, TX."

Since midpoint isn't in this thread yet, let me post the details of the World Cup prediction mini-league he's set up for soccer/football Farkers:

 "The Fark Fitba Prediction League for the World Cup is now open - all welcome. A simple fun game to fill in the excitement gaps in [say] Switzerland Vs Ecuador, or Netherlands Vs. Spain.

Go to: http://predictor.talksport.co.uk

Please join under your Fark name or closest possible. Slapdash amateurism is very much in our idiom.

Search for our private mini-league: FD3AE-RFX

See the Talksports pages for help on making predictions.

We'll take scores from the 1st round of games commencing 12th June. If you miss this deadline don't worry, you won't be far behind the leaders.."

I bet Dempsey tries to pull some strings to get him to Seattle.  Those two saved Fulham year after year by themselves.

fulham looks like their goal is to be in league two by 2017
