Football the obsession

Have your say

Here we go again, ‘Football the beautiful game’.

There is nothing beautiful about it.

It is responsible for more deaths than any other sport.

Players should never be put forward as role models for young people.

Most of them have far too much money and the morals of an alley cat.

I have never been and never will be a football fan.

I think football fans are selfish, they happily travel abroad to watch their team play giving no thought to families left behind.

TV programmes are moved to make room for football results etc.

Football isn’t a game these days, it is an obsession.
