Footballers wages are too high…says who? so what? & SHUT UP!
Because Human beings all contain chracter traits such as jealousy, bitterness, inadequacey and selfishness added to our love and desire to collectively bully and belittle people we irrationally despise, we live in a world full of hate and contempt for various things which people feel are not fair or immoral. These “things” take many forms but all of them are subject to the unwritten rule of the majority that means it’s ok to hate and judge those which we secretly want to be and are no better than.
Confused? I’ll start with the best example of a topic/occupation that everyone gets on thier high horse about and no-one ever tries to defend…
Ask your average “down to earth” aka “thick as shit” person on the street about Footballers wages and you’ll hear the standard replies of indignant outrage;
“Disgusting” “Outrageous” “Undeserved” “Immoral” “Ludicrous” and many other small nuggets of contempt and horror which follow that theme. As sincere as you might want to be the truth is…you are full of shit and lying through your teeth!
First of the wages a footballer recieves are always blown out of proportion. Whenever someone rants about the weekly salary recieved i bet you anything the number they always use is “£100,000 a week”…isn’t it? that’s the figure that’s always brought up…never 80,000 or 50,000 or even 15,000 NO! it’s always “They don’t deserve £100,000 a week” or “If i was earning £100,000 a week like them”…This figure is nowhere near the average wage of every single premiership footballer.
The yearly salary, pre tax, of the average premiership footballer is £670,000…which is a fucking shit load of cash i’ll grant you…but that means the average WEEKLY wage is only…£12,884.61p……which is over £87,000 less than the frequently mentioned £100,000.
In fact the footballers on the fabled £100,000 a week are barely even in double figures…
Ronaldo, Rooney, Ferdinand (Manu aka “scum”)
Gerrard, Carragher (liverpool)
Shevchenko, Ballack, Lampard, Terry, Drogba (Chelsea)
That’s 10 players in total (i might have missed one or two but no more than that) Arsenal has no 6 figure salary players since Viera, Henry and Campbell left.
But why does anyone care about what a footballer earns? who are you to say what they deserve and don’t deserve?
Why are people so arrogant that they feel no sense of doubt when they say “All they do is Kick a football about”…as if to say “I could do what they do”…
WELL WHY DON’T YOU DO WHAT THEY DO THEN? IF IT’S THAT EASY AND CAN EARN YOU HUGE MONEY THEN WHY DON’T YOU GET OFF YOUR ARSE A BECOME A FOOTBALLER?
…exactly, because you couldn’t…and you’re quite wrong to say that all they do is “kick a football about”…because actually they kick a football in a very precise and specific way, using techniques which are intended to move the ball in a specific direction taking a precise route to get there and requiring a skill and discipline that takes years
