Wayne Rooney, Over-Paid and Over-Hyped.
I'm slightly late to this party, but it is only because I have been so gobsmacked by the actual figures involved, that I have been unable to actually write down in words just exactly how PISSED off I am that Wayne Rooney is earning approximately.........
£300,000 a week.
and that is without sponsorship deals on top of those figures!
Excuse me while I go and retch up my stomach contents because to me, that is pretty indigestible.
Firstly, I am sorry, but NO-ONE is worth £300,000 a week. There are people out there on the front lines of the NHS, teachers, our emergency services and other extremely worthy professions that are worth a hell of a lot more than they are being paid, but £300,000 a week is just obscene.
I would add that up to the yearly amount but I haven't got anything left in my stomach and I don't want to yak up a kidney, or other vital organ.
The top professional footballers can earn a vastly over-inflated amount of money, for what exactly? Kicking a ball around? Sorry, but in my eyes, no-one needs to earn that much money a week for playing keep-uppy. It is football, and I am a huge fan of my team but that is too much money for anyone to earn, even a top-flight footballer.
And how much is a season ticket for Manchester United these days anyway? Or any season ticket for a premiership team?
When you are paying out for your match ticket, are you impressed that Wayne Rooney gets paid such a large sum of money?
Or would you rather your ticket was cheaper?
Is the rising cost of footballers wages driving up the price for the average fan in the stands?
I can't afford to take my three children to watch a game of football, but it's ok, Wayne Rooney and other players like him, can.
£300,000 a WEEK?
Are top players worth this amount?
Is anyone worth this amount?
I would love your thoughts on this matter? Whether you are a fan of the beautiful game or not, have your say.
