    Yeah well it's us fans who fund to it so we got nothing to complain about.

    "We fund it so we don't have anything to complain about"? Are you having a laugh? Lol!
    Football clubs make most their money off advertising and television deals.

    If you think it's ok for a football player to earn £250,000 every week, then good for you. But I think it's outrageous and a joke.

    Eh its all whatever to me, you can see plenty of problems in anything if you look hard enough, theres not alot we can do about it, but i read something saying that if soldiers were paid as much as footballers it would mean taxpayers pay more and more and basically in time we would be paying nuts amount of money, and likely some footballers would stop playing to become soldiers since they could earn the same wage

    I'm not saying that soldiers (for example) don't earn enough. I say footballers earn too much.

    And I'm not complaining about it either. As pointed out, it's not our money being pissed down the drain, it's the club owner's money. I'm just making for a discussion here

    You're being a fool, they get money from TV because WE are the ones who watch it. If Football drew zero viewers then they would get no money. Advertising depends on us taking an interest in the sponsor. Do you get how things work now

    So how many people had coupon's ruined by Man fucking Shity's inability to score ONE goal against fucking Stoke?!

    Does it sound like I did? Cost me nearly a grand. Oh well, next time.
