Even after sacking wildly unpopular manager Steve Kean, Blackburn's fall from the Premier League to 14th in the Championship has ensured that the club's owners remain thoroughly despised by the fans. This sentiment was on full display when the Venky's executives pulled up in their chauffeured Rolls Royces for Saturday's 2-1 loss to Charlton at Ewood Park.
The rows of fans stuffed behind a metal barrier jeered and chanted their disdain for the poultry magnates, but the day's snowfall offered another means of expressing their disapproval. The husband of Venky's chairperson Anuradha Desai was hit in the side of the head with a well-placed snowball as they walked into the stadium.
Mr. Desai can take solace in the fact that the next day, Spurs fans made it rain snowballs on Patrice Evra while he attempted a throw-in (gif here).
