Oh man. I almost wish we'd lost the cricket now it's made this cunt happy.
If footballers would be better if they were paid less, why doesn't this apply to Sir Philip Green and the like? Why are these traditional values only a good thing in sport?
The bit about Bresnan is the best. Like a Tommie apparently. As if people who never won the Ashes (including Stewart, Atherton, Hussain and Fraser) were all conchies. Possibly they just played against better Australian players.
The money thing is bullshit and peculiar, for two reasons:
1) Any team in football that has won anything at the top level will be made up of people earning massive amounts. See any World Cup winning nation in the past 30 years. I'm not sure why people can't understand that.
2) Moneymoneymoney is the Express's creed! Or one of them. But it's fine when a businessman makes loads. But not okay for people to have mega bonuses. Or for footballers. Etc.
Bresnan was essentially treated like a poor Yorkshire chap who has done very well good lad salt of the earth etc. All well intentioned, but it seems, absurdly patronising and contrary to his apparent stoic and quiet nature, being a Yorkshireman etc etc.
