    In my opinion they are overpaid glory seekers, with little viable talent in the real world, but recently they have been gettin into a lot of trouble (with the numerous cases of sexal assault brought, tho not all true, and their general misbehaviour resulting in assaults, drinking problems and drug abuse).

    Is there a link between the "yob" mentality of the new breed of footballers and these recent spats of trouble they cause, or is it just that we hear more about footballers in the news than say, atheletes or golfers etc.?

    Yes. Football is a more working class sport than athletics or golf. Therefore, more 'yobs' are likely to become footballers.

    Like Wayne Rooney for example.

    Well it does in fact make financial sense for the clubs given the vast amount of revenue they receive from fans and TV rights. Its the people watching that are paying their wages.

    But, compare with a completely hopeless actor getting paid millions per film.
    i don't think anyone who doesn't perform a necessary and worthwhile function in society should get paid anywhere near the amounts film stars and footballers get.

    and it pisses me off even more when train drivers demand higher wages - whilst the nurses and doctors and policemen etc get stuck with their crappy salaries.

    The world is insane.
