Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.

If the footballers didn’t get paid as much as they do and the 40% of their wages didn’t go to the government every month (plus all the money they raise for charities etc.) then guess who would have to pick up that shortfall? Who would the government be taking it off then!?

It’s not their fault they have an ability and SOMEBODY ELSE chooses to pay them that much money! Also a lot of nurses, firemen, police etc. Use their hard earned money to go and watch football and help pay the wages of these players, why? Because it’s a release, it’s their passion, it’s their enjoyment!

If you said to a plumber look mate you are absolutely gifted at your job so I am going to give you £100,000 a week instead of the £2000 grand a month you get, would they say no? Give it to the nurses instead?

Like everyone has already said, yes public services should get paid more but let’s not just slam footballers for it, it’s not their fault!
Well said, fully agree.

👍

Seems a tendency to blame footballers just because they are good at what they do.

Daily Wail brigade hate them.
