It’s televised teary anguish time again, the time of the season where defeat hurts, hurts, hurts like a cold-hearted bastard.

The face of the middle bloke in the last one is the apogee of football anguish. “I’ve made the effort to paint MY face and YOU BASTARDS have let ME down!!!”

I suspect that defeat doesn’t hurt as much as it appears to. I suspect that the anguished reactions are the result of the media’s pavlovian conditioning. Murdoch’s told them that football is truly important and by jiminy they’re going to look like proper fans that proper care. I suspect the truth more like this.

The bloke on the end is pretending to be upset whereas his mates are already thinking of the pub.
