Wayne rooney has just re-signed for man utd for £3,00,000 a week plus sponsorship, does any football player play that well to earn that kind of money? Even if you are a utd supporter just look where your gate money goes while you work that 40hr week to pay and go and see them play.

Like he is god? No. he can be seen on the pitch (some of the time) and he is not credited with every goal scored by his team (goals conceded being the fault of the rest of the team).

Does Wayne Rooney play like he's God? He's been non-existent for England for as long as I can remember.

True,so why were all these clubs willing to pay millions for him if he wanted to leave united. If I were manager I would of sold him and bought a replacement.

This topic is being discussed on the politics board. It is hardly a religious matter. Let's try to be a little more intelligent.

Wayne Rooney is paid what the capitalist system deems he is worth. People can only object to this if they also oppose all aspects of the capitalist system. Otherwise it's a case of shhhhhh!

You make it sound as if Wayne Rooney is some kind of exception. He isn't. There are a lot of other footballers who do not exactly starve. And other sports/film/music (etc.) stars too. Rooney is just one of many.

And I bet, a lot of you, folks, would accept such money if anyone offered it to you

So a person can't object to, or wish to change or modify just part of a capitalist system, unless they wish to entirely dispose of it or change it all? Could you explain our taxation system to us all then please? You see unless I've been misinformed then higher earners are taxed progressively in increments as their income increases. Don't governments set wages for some people as well? Policemen, firemen, nurses etc..

Whether Rooney or any soccer player are worth the obscene wages they earn is debatable, but it would have to be weighed against the amount of money they earn their employers I suppose.

Wouldn't mind just a thousand pounds a week Anita,wouldn't know what to do with that I can assure you.

Anita says:
I think you would know were you used to having a lot of money.

I agree, this amount of money sounds crazy, but it's not Rooney's fault. And if I'm honest, I don't think the world would somehow become a better place, if Rooney were paid 1/10 of that. That is, I don't think that those who really need money would get more of it.

Surely I may be wrong though

Stu says:
I am use to about £128 a week Anita, a thousand would be massive.

Silly reply. The fact that some people are not happy about the large sums of money paid to Rooney shows that the tax system is irrelevant. He may be taxed more, may ...but like Chris Moyles, he may have ways out of paying what he owes. Even if he pays his full whack, he will still take home over half of what is is paid. So in a week he will earn what others will have to work ten years for. So Doccy baby, yes, the system must be changed.

Well done you've missed the point completely, as my ref to taxation and the way it increases in line with earnings was to illustrate how silly your comment was that we should accept capitalism either as it is or reject it completely. Your last sentence is a direct contradiction of your earlier post.

So either you've not understood what I've said, or you've not understood what you've said. Or possibly both.

Heretic says:
Wayne Rooney plays football like a rugby player, and come on his face looks like it has been used as the ball in a few rugby matches. He went to the same school as my children but a year older than my oldest, my daughter, and I am told that he was always convinced he would play professional football but I think there was only a cigarette paper between what he is doing now and being a drug dealer.

Amazon is now considering building one of it's mega warehouses on the site of that school.

Nothing in life is a certainty but there is a significant probability that you might be right. However my children grew up in the same environment and none of them were ever tempted in that direction and he might of been the same (back peddling in case I'm sued).

No

But it is football supporters who feed that kind of salary. No one needs that much money. We spend our money entertaining ourselves while our NHS is falling down around our ears, the police and fire brigade and army are scrounging. Community care and residential care budgets are cut. Mental health care is cut. But we have enough money to pay one man £300,000 per week. And enough money to give MP's an 11% pay rise. It's obscene.

I find it quite tragic that there is so much money in English football but so little of it trickles down to grass roots and nearly all of it ends up in the pay packets of Premier League players and their agents.
