Poofters

Just to show you what a bunch of gay-ass poofters some of this nations Premiership football 'stars' are, I've blatantly ripped off Motorcycle News and compiled a small table of injured 'athletes' compared to young Bradley Smith, Britain's up and coming 125cc racer:

Gary Neville (2002) broken 5th metatarsal, predicted 6-8 week recovery, returned 21 weeks later.

Ashley Cole (2005) broken 5th metatarsal, predicted 6-8 week recovery, returned after 12 weeks.

Michael Owen (2006) broken 5th metatarsal, predicted 6-8 week recovery, returned 12 weeks later.

David Beckham (2002) broken 5th metatarsal, predicted 6-8 week recovery, returned after 7 weeks.

Wayne Rooney (2004) 5th metatarsal, predicted 6-8 week recovery, returned 14 weeks later.

Bradley 'I Feel No Pain' Smith (2008) broken 5th metatarsal, predicted 6-8 week recovery, returned 22 HOURS later!

17 years old and he's a legend already!

Yeah, but you don't have to KICK the motorcycle.

(Wait a minute--did I just DEFEND soccer? When are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse gonna get here?)

Hmmm . . . you're right, you don't kick, but you do brake, change gear, corner, and steer, all through your feet.

Wayne Rooney looks like my ex-husband.


and the rest don't look like poofters to me at all! arent' you just being a bit harsh there eh inchy old boy?

Footballer are vastly overpaid and I personally blame this culture of chucking money at them for the current credit crunch.

Inchy said...

Kate - I certainly am not, I'm being quite lenient! They get paid obscene ammounts of money for kicking a ball for 90 minutes twice a week, yet ask them to play a third game in that week and they complain of exhaustion! I thought they were meant to be fit?!

Steve - Right on, brother.

Perhaps if we paid them a little more, they'd have more of an incentive to return to work {ahem} ...

Poofters? Who are the ones dressed in leather?

Inchy said...

I don't need an old man with a wet sponge to man-handle me every time a blade of grass grazes my knee.

Bright Ambassador said...

Why do they wear crash helmets then, if they're so hard?

Inchy said...

Cause it looks cool, and chicks dig it. Why else would you wear one?!
