    I agree with you on that one... but what about the likes of Justin Beiber who pays £900 a month for his hair cut!? And what about Beyone who spent £50,000 on a pair of leggings which she will probably NEVER wear again? It's not just footballers who get paid stupid amounts...

    Think of the poor children starving in Africa...

    If there is someone who gives you a hundred thousand pounds for one reason or another, would that be disgusting because you don't deserve it? Footballers don't steal the money, it's the fans that pretty much give it to them

    We had this discussion in one of our college classes recently about overpaid footballers and many people had different views. My personal view is that they (footballers) get the joy of playing the game of football (which they'd play anyway regardless or not if they get payed) as well as being paid an absolute fortune, of a monthly salary of average £150,000 to £250,000 a week, £1,000,000 a month and £12,000,000 a year!! for kicking a damn ball around a pitch!!

    Many people go to work (and don't enjoy it) and work 8,10, and 12hr shifts on some really hard tough jobs and are getting weekly wages of about £250-£300 a week.

    I don't like football, I don't support no damn team but What is so interesting to watch about a group of grown men kicking a ball around a field and getting grossly overpaid?
    It's a business if you don't want them to get paid as much then manipulate people into not watching it.

    Overpaid? According to what objective standard are you making that claim?

    Actors are also overpaid. Why focus on the footballers?

    My point is; comparing footballers to regular 30k PA jobs is like comparing a major film star to a plumber.

People who argue like this are also usually hypocrits and say musians deserve there millions despite working less hard for it.

    Dear OP shut up,

    Actually take a look around see the amount of chavs who wear football teams items; yes Rooney is ugly and overrated but his name sells T-Shirts if his pay were to be cut ten he would move to a different club who would pay him that amount. These players are paid by welthy businessmen who realise that paying them this amount of money is profitable.

    Besides its the wealthy businessman's money hows is what he does with it anything to do with you?

    It certainly wouldn't bother me, It's a wage if they earn it they deserve it, Same with bankers, If the bank does well then they deserve a bonus.
