Grow up?? There's a bit of difference between all those examples above and what happened with Cheslea getting CL instead of Spurs. None of those clubs will miss out massively on losing what they lost, however the consequences for Spurs as a club, without trying to exaggerate, could be dire. Modric for one will probably leave, Bale could, those our 2 of our most potent attracking options. Not only that but our transfer targets will be lowered, for the obvious reason of not having CL and for also not having the funds the CL generate. Also there's the small matter of our current manager, he needs to be replaced. He lost the players with all his talk of England, and made some baffling decisions throughout the season that had an obvious negative impact on the team. How many managers will want to take over Spurs now?
So as you can see there's a bug difference in the examples you gave and consequences for Spurs of Chelsea winning the CL. To repeat, they're a pair of gumps, they could at least have said nothing and showed some sensitivity towards their employers and their employers' fans.
