Retread: Just another bitch

Post by BiscuitRanger » Sat Jul 29, 2017 6:16 am

GBP 350,000 per week after deductions, every week until 2022, should be enough to see young Gareth ok for a while.
Not a dig at Mr Bale, who is undoubtedly a great player, and a Brit to boot, but this is beyond obscene.

I can't bring myself to follow football much longer. Please let's all just stop.

Come the glorious revolution brothers... :lol: :lol:

Better it goes to the players rather than the agents.

If we stop (watching football - live or on TV) it stops.
Much better than revolution, which tends not to be glorious.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

I don't think money at the gate goes anywhere near financing football now.

Heard an interview with a Man City fan on talksport who said his season ticket hasnt really changed in 3 years. Still around the £700 mark and for that he gets to see some of the best players in the world. He couldnt care less what transfer fees and wages are because these are funded by merchandising and sponsorship. Certainly one view.....

Im sure that Bale deal will include profits from products sold with his name on it and corporate deals where he'll have to represent these firms. If these deals are around why shouldnt he benefit from it.

Look at the Naymar numbers. There's a lot in these number outside of football. Bet that wont include a head and shoulders shampoo advert or being the face of sellotape.

I'm not blaming the players, and accept it's more than just running around a bit in pursuit of a ball of air, it's just the disproportionality and obscene numbers that sicken me.

I would wager that Lewis Hamilton and Anthony Joshua will earn more than Bale this year.

But I agree nobody needs that amount of money. But Bale seems a down to earth type of guy and Im sure his family and friends are looked after as well as local charities.

Apparently Harry isnt in football for the money its for the love of the game. Proper football person.

I've already jacked it in.
Apart from Rangers.. I couldn't give a flying one about the rest of football. Not going to even bother hoping the mongs lose anymore.

I get more anoyed with the players who ''only earn'' £10k a week but can't do the basics.

£500k a year to be an average player is nuts.

Defense spending over the last year:
Moldova - $ 30 million
Malta - $ 57 million
Macedonia - $ 106 million
Albania - $ 147 million
Bosnia and Herzegovina - $ 164 million
FC Manchester City - $ 226 million.

I became this way along time ago, footballers do what they want, and also saw about Man U that they employ people to go round the players houses and turn on the oven etc, if i were a player i would be ashamed, i actually hate ALL players, our own included, my allegance is to the name of the club, that is all

The only way to stop it is to stop giving Sky, BT Sport etc money each month but as Sheepy says other sportsmen earn just as much if not more.

Hollywood A listers get millions per movie.

Tracy Ullman, remember her, with her TV and short music career is worth 80 million.

Syd Barrett the founder of Pink Floyd left 60 million when he died in 2006 and that was only from the re-release of all of Floyd's pre 1970 material that he was involved with, he didn't work at all after 1970.

The entertainment industry overall just generates trillions of pounds meanwhile we have people living in poverty, less police than we had thirty years ago and virtually nothing done to combat online fraud.
