    I just had a mini argument with my friend. He stated that I am not worthy enough to be an Arsenal fan because I don't know this or that player or what's the game schedule. I love watching a good game from time to time, but that's it.

    I don't know how's in the US, but in Europe soccer is blooming, especially after economic crisis, their salaries are higher than ever .. i mean some of them earn like $500,000 on a week, which is ridiculous. Majority of them have enough money to buy a ferrari, lambo or anything they want. I mean, imagine 30 idiots coming to a stadium driving ferraris, while 40,000 idiots standing with chips and cornpops. Yeah i know the market and stuff, but it's interesting how football players are becoming richer, while the rest of the world are getting poorer.

    The same friend is washing cars for like $350 a month and he is mad at me because I don't know the fucking schedule.. Well i don't fucking care, because after the game these players go flow a yacht or something, while my friend is washing other people's cars all day. He can't afford even a fucking car. I'd rather dedicated my time learning a new skill, language or educate myself than waste my time watching several idiots running around a ball and striking the fucking net once in a while.

    On the other side, a lot of my friends are doing sport betting, wasting their time and money, while bet shop owners are raiding new cars around. I mean, people are fucking stupid. I used to bet sometimes, but I realized that these guys are getting richer and richer, while the stupid idiots are betting (aka throwing money away.) I don't understand how people can be "mentally" blind and not start using some fucking common sense.

    You are a customer, not a fan. Your friend might be poor but he has a point.

    The same can be said for video game, movies, television, drugs, and any other productivity wasters. It's finding your happy medium. If your idiot friend is satisfied washing cars for $350 per month, and enjoying sports, then that's his prerogative. If you would rather dream of the Ferrari and yacht and strive for your goals, then good for you.

    Just remember: "Having money isn't everything. Not having it is."

    EDIT: Guy above me got it perfectly. A sports fan is nothing more than a customer.

    Nobody makes 500 000 a week, more like 350-420 000 a week for Messi and Ronaldo who are the highest paid footballers and that's their salary if you count other money it goes above 500 000 a week.

    Lambo's and Ferrari can be bought for around $50,000-$100,000 so it's easy to imagine footballers driving them. They get paid so much given the fact that the club pays the money they gave for the player extremely fast. For example, when Real Madrid bought Cristiano Ronaldo for $100,000,000 the club got that money back in 1 week only by selling his T-shirts.

    If you say that you are an Arsenal fan, then it's good to know their schedule and squad. If not, then state that you watch football every once in a while.

    P.S: If you are born poor, it's not your fault. But if you die poor, then it is!

    I can relate to you Shanna doll and while all my friends found the movie Big Short boring, I was the only one who thought it was interesting.

    I read somewhere that in Ancient Greece sports was a medium to divert the attention of the population from war, poverty etc

    I think when he says 500.000 a week he means everthink like books, signings, cloths, shoe, trainers it about wright.

    dont fotget a player also get huge donations from the very rich, to there
    foveate charity, and yes becouse there the leader of a charity, can earn
    thousands/millions as the director off that charity.

    but the club wages can be anythink from 150.000 to 500.000 inclusive of perks
    free car, free home ect ect.

    it the only job that gives you a free home or car if you score the first goal in a international match, home game first goal are encourage via money bonus.

    your mate stupid really becomes i am a arsenal supporter but i dont no any of the players these days they dont look english to me or from a english background or live in north London i suppose the old days are all over.

    a football team follows you from the day you choose your team from young and stay with you till your dead , the team is usually a local team mine was arsenal

    i dont no there player names i dont no even when there playing
    but i do support my team what's arsanal .

    your mate talk rubish you dont need to no anythink to support somethink
    you just need to be hapoy and no it your team that won or not.

    to meny people take football to far , it like the end of the world if there team lose , they forget there money to earn, for the wife ,or the children ,at home or there rent, all they seem to do is have a excuse to sit in a pub drinking alcohol , then ask there mates for a loan for the miss back home lol

    (( i lived in a pub for years trust me i am telling the truth lol

    some people even go out to pubs for the excuse to just drink don't beleve in football at all.

    lol who cares if someone wants to have a 0 stress job and watch sports? At least he isn't living in his mom's basement making $100 a month telling mom that he's gonna make it in Internet Marketing and just being a huge POS waste of space, which is basically 99% of the people here.

    why do you fucking care, you seem like the guy that think he is smarter than everybody else because you think you cracked the life code? there is no right way to live man, there are just ways to live and he decides what he does, and god you even had to come to bhw to rant about your real life wtf.

    and about your friend he is just a tryhard sports fan, they act like that, its life, there are different people that like X or Y things

    It's no 0 stress job, he works way too hard, he once ended up in a hospital because of stress and hard work. he is my huge friend, but he loves watching foreign football players more than thinking about his future. And there are many people in my country like that. That's what makes me mad. Btw, I make more in 2 hours of work a day, then what he makes working 10 + hours a day of super hard work. But it's not all about the money.. but whatever.. someone got my point, others didn't... anyways.... ;)

    I just had 2 people clean my place today. You could say that they are crazy to want to clean toilets, but maybe they just want to clean houses and not worry about dumb corporate bullshit, go home and smoke a bowl for the night. Ain't nothing wrong with that. I'd much rather these people in society than the useless morons I see day in and day out on here with their stupid Ferrari and Mercedes shoops and their bitching about mom wanting them to get a job because they sit at home all day.

    Yeah, today people are so fuking dumb. They just want to be entertained all the fuking time because they have a shit life.

    They work their dead end ass job and to keep them from going crazy thinking about how they have no future they must watch reality TV or sports.

    I feel the same way sometimes but you have to realize everyone thinks differently and have their own priorities. You should instead focus on keeping a more positive mentality and spread good vibes.

    Your life is not better than their and their is no way better than your either.

    They can't judge you and you can't judge them, they can live the life they want and so can you. If you are no longer comfortable being with them, it is time for you to move on.

    I've learned that to live a happy life without anger towards society you shouldn't care about the ignorant. Let him live his way of live and make the most of what you think that matters for yours.

    In india its Cricket and Bollywood.Millions of kids waste their time to see the players and actors make millions. Atleast watching the game/Movie is excusable but what pisses me is they talk for hours and fight about which star is having a cuter girlfriend and which flim collected how much in box office.
    Having said that all, i agree with some in the above posts that we should worry about our own life and not be judgmental about others.
