No offence suffered.
But wouldn't it be great if some of the BILLIONS that are involved in this major industry, and that's what it really is, were spent on keeping schoolkids fit and healthy?
I am of the opinion that the only spend is to advertize and extend the gravy train enjoyed by the management.
I'm sure Sepp and his mates would disagree with me. But fck them. They are totally corrupt.
What do you, and other footie fans, do to ensure that the vast sums involved are distributed to the ground level and are not siphoned off by the parasites at the top?

This argument pertains to everything and everyone that/who is/are overpaid. Overpaid being defined by me as those who earn more than is required to lead a 'decent' life. In this age of the easy buck (for those who are in the right place at the right time) those millions of people who do an honest day's work and accept a responsibility - mostly according to their abilities - are left hanging. In my opinion the world is out of control - we live under a constant stream of delusions. Paying a sportsman 1m dollars for winning a game of tennis shows how the lack of commonsense in the world of sport and other - often pointless - worlds shows itself.
Last year in spring my brother from England visited me for a few days. He's a keen football fan and has spent his life refereeing amateur games at a good level. He asked me if I'd take him to the Fifa building up by the zoo. So we went. To no avail. This building is placed completely away from public access. Typical Sepp arrogance.
Just something personal here - I've spent the last four years as a voluntary Red Cross driver for Spitex. According to the records I've kept I've driven 430 people to a doctor, hospital or clinic - waited for them and then taken them home. The hours add up to 1000s. The price of petrol has always been reimbursed. But at the end of every year (and I'm not jealous) the baur-au-lac hotel in Zurich hosts a party for all those celebrities who have somehow added their name to the Red Cross 'do-gooders' - the photo's are always in the papers. Thousands of people like myself who plod on doing something we find worthwhile are not even mentioned. There are millions of other people in exactly the same situation.
Sport should be a hobby - not a job.
Anyway: I hate ice-hockey.
