UEFA, the governing body of European football is demanding that the fast food place connected to a stadium where their youth championships are being held closes for the duration of the tournament. Why? Well, because McDonalds is one of their sponsors!

That really makes my blood boil! :evil:

Hey, I've got an idea...if McDs is so worried about the competition...how about putting out a better product?

About the only time we ever eat McDs is when we go to the Field museum. The only other on-campus food is a Corner Bakery, which besides being even more overpriced than normal, it's also usually overcrowded. With the kids, we need seats more than ever, so we just don't go.

And lugging food for 4 isn't exactly easy, either. I like to think their sign says "6 billion OTHER people served since you were last here...."

McDs sucks. I only eat there out of desperation. And what they're doing in this situation is total bullshit.

I wasn't referring to you.

I meant that's a bullshit policy about the place by the stadium having to shut down the fast food place.

Actually, that'd be illegal under WTO auspices, too. If the restaurant had the might, they could take it there...only they'd just be awarded damages AFTER the fact given that disputes take typically...18 months?

Actually, I can't see the Swedish authorities letting this happen - but it's the arrogance that leads to such demands that pisses me off the most.
