Struggling Footballer

Gary Madine jailed for Sheffield nightclub attacks on fans.
Quote
Madine was ordered to pay £1,500 in compensation to Mr Beresford and £4,200 in court costs. Ms Dorrell (defending) said she believed this would be difficult for the defendant as he had not been paid by the club since he was convicted last month.
She said although he had been earning £5,000 a week he was struggling to pay a mortgage on the house where his family lived.

Quote
Much of the £5,000 a week went on high living

Maybe we should organise a collection for him....or maybe some lottery funding.

I hate football. They all get paid too much and because of it, they feel that they are immune to the law. Well, they aren't.

Quite frankly if he was earning £5k a week and can't afford to pay his mortgage and a fine then he isn't safe to handle money at all. The bloke should have his finances controlled by someone else.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Struggling Footballer

I stopped caring about football years ago, the last Sheffield Wednesday match I attended was a reserves match 20 odd years ago.
And yes, footballers do get paid too much, £20,000 a week for kicking a plastic ball round a field for 90 minutes? To quote The Miz off the wrestling, really? Really? Really?!

David Beckham - for sitting on a bench!!! Only with football, would you get paid for that. They're busy doing nothing and getting paid more than other people ever will, who work five thousand times as hard.

Re: Struggling Footballer

But who is to blame for them getting paid so much ?
No Prizes for guessing the answer to that !
