Alec Summers a contributer to the Liverpool FC site KopBlog has organised a petition and called on supporters to boycott the new Liverpool 08/09 kit.
The new liverpool 2008-2009 kit is planned to be unveiled on Friday and the petitions organiser feels that fans should refuse to purchase it until current Liverpool owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have gone from the club.
The petition states:
We, the loyal supporters of Liverpool Football Club, have had enough of the boardroom saga for control of our club. We have staged protests and we have made banners, but the time has now come to take our efforts to the next level.
As we were made aware by the club this week, Adidas and Liverpool plan to unveil the new 2008/2010 kit next Friday, April 25, 2008. The undersigned of this petition have agreed to boycott this item, and refuse to purchase it until Tom Hicks and George Gillett are out of our club. We understand that the loss of potential millions of pounds will hurt the club in the short-run, but it is also true that this will hurt the current owners in the only place that matters to them - their wallets. We will always support our team, but until Tom Hicks and George Gillett are out of club, we will not purchase this item.
We refuse to accept the role of being a money-maker for Tom Hicks and George Gillett`s entertainment businesses. We refuse to accept the debt placed on our club despite promises to the contrary. We refuse to accept the owners` ineptitude and incompetence regarding our new stadium. We refuse to accept the spin coming from Tom Hicks' PR department. We refuse to accept the disgraceful public image these two have given our club in the global press. And lastly, we refuse to accept Tom Hicks and George Gillett as custodians of our storied, and beloved club.
