I had gone to bed before the incident during the Chelsea / Swansea game on Wednesday night. And it is a good job because if I had seen it I would have worked myself up into such a rage I wouldn’t have been able to sleep for a week.
A 17 year old ball boy gets kicked because a premiership footballer thinks that the boy has held on to the ball for too long and is “time wasting”. This footballer is on £170,000 a week and he thinks that kicking another human being in the ribs is justified.
Words fail me.
And then we see this on Twitter. From another so called professional footballer:
Hazard only crime is he hasn’t kicked him hard enough…

Despicable. Utterly vile.
Send them all off. Every one of them. Football is full of overpaid egotistical men that think they are Gods. And that because they are good with a football it gives the right to behave in any way they like. On and off the pitch.
This just reinforces why I despise the game and eveything to do with it.
