Okay, firstly, no-one has defended £2.3 million for a footballers wage. That's that out of the way.
Hostafan, were you drunk when you posted your tirade last night or were you just desperate for a fight or to try and belittle someone? Hear this, you are a tosser! If you were face to face with me, I assure you, you wouldn't rant at me like that. You are a keyboard hero who sits at his/her computer, afraid of no-one. However, your not afraid only because you know your safe in your little cyber world and the person you're having a go at doesn't know who you are. You're probably the type of person that when faced with a real life confrontation would be shitting in his pants.
As for you Fishy, why do ill informed people always use ridiculous and extreme scenarios to try to emphasise a point. Nuclear war??????? What does that have to do with sports peoples earnings. Again, were you drunk? Maybe just a little eh? Blurred your sense of proportion a bit did it? Good god man, get a grip on yourself.
Most people believe that some sports people are paid a ridiculous amount. Most people have the sense to realise that most sports people earn a decent living and that's it. Everything is driven by the market in which they operate. The wages are, ultimately, determined by the people who watch and enjoy the sport. They are, ultimately, paid by those who watch and enjoy the sport. It doesn't cost you anything. It doesn't cost the tax payer anything, in fact, it brings in tax revenue. It doesn't cost anyone who doesn't have any interest in sport, anything. Taking money off sports people wouldn't increase the wages of anyone else.
Professional sports people don't choose this as a career for the money. They choose it because they love the sport and they are good enough and dedicated enough to make it. Don't have a rant at someone who did what most people would love to have done. Is there a hint of jealousy in there boys?
