Culminating in a great gesture for Malaysian fan Rick Wee at the Palace game last night.

Bit like cutting your nose off to spite your face though isn't it? I mean we have discussions in football at the moment about putting nets up because some idiots insist on throwing things at players. We should try and avoid judging the majority because of the actions of the few.

For what it's worth, I'm not personally outraged, but I have thought for some time now that the club is missing a huge opportunity to engage with fans. Lots of other businesses have done this really well, and I dare say the connection Everton has with its fans is deeper than that enjoyed by most businesses.

In any case, I don't see the cause for all the outrage. The club obviously has its reasons, and the club must come first. Boycotting the club is a terrible and counter-productive idea.

We USA fans of Tim Howard and Landon Donovan commiserate with our brothers and sisters in blue and white. :(

For too long the "official" pages from Everton have been SORELY lacking in content beyond that of the first team.
Unfortunately it seems that this is all the fault of people who have nothing to do with the club, Everton just pay some company to make the site and then step aside. It's a real shame that the club can't make better use of community based and made websites like kipper and GOT.
