Sports Stars
Professional sports people are the ones I find get right on my wick. These types, usually of the little to no intelligence and of no real life ability other than being able to kick or hit a ball get paid millions and squillions of Dollars, Pounds, Euros for PLAYING GAMES.

I have heard it being justified, “Oh they have to train very hard and make a lot of sacrifices”, THEY PLAY FUCKING GAMES. A woman living in war torn Africa getting raped by marauding soldiers and taking it so they don’t find her children hidden under the floor boards is making a lot of sacrifices, these cunts hang out with their mates, PLAYING FUCKING GAMES and don’t eat KFC, that isn’t a sacrifice that is a lifestyle choice.

Yet for some reason we hold these cunts up as role models and examples of all that is good in our society. Give them father of the year awards on Tuesday and Wednesday they are out with their over paid, under brained team mates hovering up great piles of cocaine, forcing them selves on women (although some don’t really seem to mind being forced on) usually in a group, cheating on their wives, abandoning their children and generally doing all the worst things you can do for society.

They don’t actually contribute anything to society other than PLAYING FUCKING GAMES for the entertainment of the masses. Doctors save lives, doctors make people lives better, sure they get paid reasonably well for what they do but, bloody hell, they do make a huge difference to people lives yet their salary is a 100th of blokes like Noberta Sola.

And finally, what about teachers? The people we trust our children’s minds to, the people who outside the family have the most amount of influence (and in many cases more influence). If we paid teachers a million pounds/dollars/euros a year, it would probably attract the best and brightest people to become teachers, rather than merchant bankers or lawyers and ensure the long term betterment of our society rather than the large number of no hopers* who can’t make it in the real world and choose to impart their mediocrity on to our kids.

It’s just fucking wrong getting paid huge money to PLAY FUCKING GAMES. Give them 20 quid a week and a free meal after the match. That is fair remuneration for what they do. Maybe then the cunts would have to get a real job Monday to Friday and the time they have for taking advantage of society would be greatly reduced.

*no offence to all of the good teachers out there.

as much as i agree
If teachers were paid that much we would end up with a bunch of bankers, although very good pay and resources would be good.

Whilst in South Korea,
I saw a demonstration game and autograph signing for two local 'sports stars'.

Their sport?


They have professional (and apparently well paid) starcraft players. I even saw games broadcast on what seemed like a dedicated TV station.

nutting fuckers.

You get a clicky from me. Quite outrageous.

If you offered a million quids to teachers
It would just attract more people who don't give a shit about the kids and are only in it for the money.

why blame the footballers?
most of them would happily play for £20 and a free meal. Beckham, rooney et al play for the love of the game, not the money, although that is a rather large bonus.

Instead, why not blame the fans who are willing to turn these ordinary bloke into role models by paying £50 a week to go and watch them.

I agree that nurses and teachers should be paid more, but I don't think footballers do anything wrong. it's the business around football that you have the problem with.

I'd pay fifty quid a week to watch nurses...

The only way I can begin to justify the vast amount of money they make is to look at the extremes.
By scoring goals and helping their team win leagues/trophies Rooney and Drogba are making millions of pounds in prize money, attracting sponsorship etc. When was the last time you made millions for your company on a Sunday afternoon?

(For the record, this doesn't justify the atrocious amount they earn, it just helps me kid myself into thinking maybe its not that absurd)

...but some Premiership teams are spending over 100% of the years takings on transfers. It's being funded by Russian sugar daddys and isn't sustainable.

The man laughing all the way to the bank is Rupert Murdoch. Fuck off Sky, I hate you.

PLAYING FUCKING GAMES for the entertainment of the masses
Yeah. And whilst were at it, let's hate actors and musicians.

A person's wage depends on what they are worth to their employers. I'm not saying people get paid that amount, workers are exploited and if they weren't, profits would be shared accordingly and you're wandering into Marxism there.

A pro footballer might get paid several million per year, but how much are they worth to the club they play for? Many millions more. They are private companies after all and can pay what they like.

There are only a few people that skilled at the game. If I was in say, the top 100 most talented people in my line of work, I'd want paying a small fortune too.

If you're going to have a dig at footballers, or any other professional athletes, then concentrate on their lifestyle and contempt, not their wages.

I wonder how much David Beckham et al paid in taxes whilst he lived in the UK.

Well said.
Also try to focus on their immunity from the law. Take Steven Gerrard (or Stevie G as the proles call him); he assaulted someone, and despite video evidence to support this, got off scot free.
On the other hand, I wouldn't be unhappy if they let him off, then just appended the punishment to Joey Barton.

tbh the players are only as bad as the culture of the game
I speak as one who has carefully mapped out every pub without TV screens near my work and home so that I can have a world cup-free summer because to someone who has no interest in other people playing games, the whole thing looks fucking retarded.

My godfather is a British stereotype; a relic of the long-forgotten empire.
When he was 18 and applying to university, he was asked if he did sport.

He replied "I shoot, and I fish, but I do not hunt."

They said they rather meant rugby and football.

"Oh!" He replied, "You mean games ... "

annoy me - a bunch of prima donna neanderthals paid hundreds of thousands of quid a week to shepherd a piece of leather up and down a piece of grass? Fuck off! - but your godfather, I rather think I like.

I like the idea of
Paying professional footballers £20 a week and a good meal. We might win a world cup then...The 1966 winning team were on hardly any money and often lived next door to the very fans that supported them.
