FOOTBALL RICH LIST: Who the hell cares?

The FourFourTwo.com Football Rich List 2009 has just been released, and I’m curious – why does anyone care which footballers earn the most money?!

So David Beckham earns X and Steven Gerrard is worth Y; why is this news? Why do we care? Why is this such a big deal?

Fans seem to lap up this kind of info and often seem impressed by it even though this outrageous, undeserved wealth is basically being rubbed in their faces.

I’ve never understood the fascination with such lists to be honest.

All it proves is how grossly overpaid these preening, pampered primadonnas really are.
