Footballers. The typical weekly wage is now an average of £60,000 a week. The highest earner in the Premier League at the moment is, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo, who now earns £145,000 a week after signing a new contract with Manchester United.
Compare that to a Police Officer. A profession in which you risk your life every day, and they get £20,000 a YEAR. This means that it would take your average Police Officer 7 and a half years to earn what Ronaldo does in seven days.
How the hell is that fair? To make matters worse, some soldiers get paid £15,000 a year. They're fighting in a war zone. Ronaldo runs around after a football. Fair? Haha.
Take a monumental twat like Ashley Cole, who had the audacity to complain about receiving JUST £55,000 A WEEK. He took the decision to leave Arsenal to move to Chelsea who have the dosh to give him what he wants.
Not long ago we had an appeal that asked every Premier League footballer to give just one days wages to help the NHS nurses who get crap money. £20,000 a year I believe. Some footballers had the cheek to say that nurses are overpaid. That's simply disgusting.
Now I'm not saying it's the footballers fault that nurses get sh*t wages, but they could easily afford to be of some assistance. What some footballers don't seem to realise, or care, is that every time they demand another £20,000 a week, they are pushing their fans closer to being out of pocket.
The Sun launched a campaign to bring prices down, and it worked at some clubs. However, the majority of those clubs were clubs that were not paying over £100,000 a week to almost every player.
It shows the difference when the people who either keep the safe from terrorists, yobs or keep us safe from diseases (not very well in some hospitals, but that's down to the cleaners) are driving home in crappy Nissan Micra, and footballers drive home in a flash new Bentley Continental GTC.
Anyone who supports the extortionate amount that footballers get obviously doesn't...
