Life, death and football


I remember a seeing an interview with Harry Kewell a couple of years back where they discussed his salary being almost the same as the annual salary cap of the entire AFL.

You don’t even have to like football to know that all that money is changing the game and not necessarily for the better.

Which is why I am anything but surprised by a story coming out of the UK about an ad for World Vision being pulled of air. The reason?

The V/O compared the £49million sponsorship of the England team to the 60p a day it costs to sponsor a child.

What on earth is the world coming to?
