As a Chelsea F.C. fan, you’d think I’d give a shit about the fact that John Terry was stripped of his captaincy, but I don’t. Simply because I don’t actually know what he captain does. Possibly apart from the fact that they decide the all-important fatal decision of deciding either Heads or Tails. Anyone can do that can’t they, but everyone would think that it is an absurd idea to make Wayne Rooney captain of our finest XI.

A captain’s roles are basically being a walking manager for their team, and if they win a trophy at the end, they get to touch the cup first; before the rest of the teams’ smelly hands stain it.

Having never actually played a professional game of football, or even a semi-professional game of football I have actually no first hand experience of what the captain actually does. I could assume that it is similar to taking the role of leader in a multiplayer video game, because I have been to a couple of football matches and all I have seen the captain do that makes his/her (I’m not sexist) title worthwhile is they shout at their teammates. It seems a pretty close comparison, to telling some idiot half-way around the world that there are teammates capturing a point and not to throw grenades (which s/he will ignore and eventually do), to telling a teammate to move in a certain position so he can pass the ball. It probably doesn’t seem like a hard thing to do, at least from my point of view. But it seems, as it always is, that he has managed to be influenced by idiotic media.

So why go through all the trouble of writing a so-far pointless article? Simple; the way it was handled. It begs the question: would Terry have been sacked if there was less media coverage? The answer: probably. He should feel terrible after cheating on his own wife and daughter, with someone who has her own daughter with Terry’s co-worker, and should be punished for it. But all I keep hearing about are alleged reports. For all I know, it probably didn’t happen at all and this is just a publicity stunt. A pretty bad publicity stunt though, which included Terry’s loss of his captaincy, reputation, and respect.

If it is true, it just seems to be British tabloid nature of generating as much money, publicity and gossip as possible. As it always is, and once again the News of the World has come to influence the majority of the British public, and indeed the world, that they are the only reliable source of information is that sorry excuse for a newspaper. And of course this feeds controversy and ignorant hate. This fucking newspaper was also responsible of the destruction of both Sven-Göran Eriksson and Angus Deayton careers, (and Max Mosely). And guess how and when the public and their employers responded to this? By sacking them, demonising them, demoralizing them only after this newspaper had pried into their private lives because they needed something else to do! Pathetic British hypocrites. I’m pretty sure about half the people who read this newspaper have done something they’re not proud of, but will always seek out faults in other “role models” instead of their own.

Fabio Cappello decides to take the captaincy away from Terry as a form of punishment. Seriously? That’s supposed to teach him a lesson? To stop him shouting at his teammates. Ok, fine, I don’t know how football works as well as you do. But still, giving the captaincy to someone to Rio Ferdinand. What kind of role modelling is that? Don’t worry kids: having sex with two different women is much worse than being violent in the workplace.

So the moral of the story is, if you want to destroy someone’s career, ask Colin Myler.

  1. Can you believe this story?

    I had to share this with everyone.

    (NewsCore)

    A WOMAN’S breast implants have saved her life after she was caught in the line of fire and shot at point-blank range with a semi-automatic assault rifle.

    The Sun reports Lydia Carranza’s silicone implants took the force of the blow and prevented bullet fragments from reaching her vital organs.

    The dental receptionist was at work in Beverly Hills, Calif., when a gunman burst in and opened fire.

    He first shot dead his wife before turning the gun on Carranza, who was sitting a few feet away.

    Surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami said: “She’s just one lucky woman.

    “The bullet fragments were millimeters from her heart and her vital organs. Had she not had the implant, she might not be alive today.”

    Carranza’s implants took her from a B to a D-cup.

    Alleged gunman Jaime Paredes was charged with murder.

  1. […] Once again it seems another decision has been made based on political correctness and media pressure. Mr. Eric Carlin resigned from the Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs, because the council decided to upgrade the status of mephedrone (sometimes known as miaow) from a legal high to a Class-B drug, thus making it illegal. However Eric Carlin stated that the decision was pased on public and media pressure…like eveything else is Eric. […]
