John Terry - one thing I don't understand
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:45:23 AM »
Ok I'm not a fan of his. However looking at the facts -

Terry - had relations with an ex girlfriend of his team mate.

Giggs - had affair with his sister in law

Terry - always vilified in the press

Giggs - a media darling

Why is this the case?

A bloke I used to work with went downstairs for breakfast one morning and found Giggs asleep on his settee. Apparently his daughter had brought him back and then decided that she didn't fancy him enough.

I think Terry is tainted by the behaviour of other family members as well as his own.

England international Wayne Bridge is more relevant to the press than Giggs' anonymous brother so Terry's affair was bound to get more coverage. Add to that glassing a bouncer, uriniating in a wine glass in front of some American tourists and calling Ferdinand a "black £&@?" (those are just the things I can recall off the top of my head) and of course playing for Chelsea. In any case I wouldn't say he's "vilified" in the press (have you a recent example?) nor that Giggs is their darling. I've never thought Giggs a nice person.

Having checked, I may have conflated two separate incidents when I said he uriniated in a wine glass in front of tourists (flashing tourists on one occasion and uriniating in a wine glass in a club on another occasion) and I forgot him parking in that disabled space!

We should all be wary about stories reported by the media, even those much closer to the source or even those very close to home. Whilst there is always smoke around a fire, sometimes it doesn't mean what others think it means.  Even 'material witnesses' to events can get it totally wrong.  Ask a hundred people what they saw, heard and thought when at a seriously important historic event and it is still hard to convert the evidence into a completely reliable truth.  I would guess, as a yardstick measure, that the more money a person earns the less 'nice' s/he'll be with exceptions proving the rule, because the trick in life is always to be yourself and that get's harder the moment you move away (or are moved away) from who you truly are. 

My main point is that contemporary footballers are paid too much at the top and too little down the bottom, which, sadly, is repeated in contemporary society in general, and that says all you need to know about those at the top.

If I asked a hundred people what they saw about any incident, I would make sure Arsene Wenger wasn't one of them.

Not so much of “why is this the case”? rather why should we give a monkey’s worrying about this type of garbage that the media spew out.

You had a prime example only last week with bully boy Kelvin MacKenzie likening Everton’s Ross Barkley to a gorilla. That non-story illustrates the contempt shown by the Aussie bully-boy and his media cohorts. 

Don’t buy it, don’t buy any of it. It’s a form of brain washing that diverts us from the real news, whatever the “real news” is.

Who are the people?

We are the people.

Allegedly.. Terry had tried to put a gagging order on newspaper reports that he had an affair with team mates estranged girlfriend, who had got pregnant during that time and had an abortion, but neither Terrys wife or Wayne Bridge had any Idea about the affair until the gagging order was refused by the courts. Bridges had a 3 year old son with his girlfriend and Terrys wife was friends with the girlfriend Ms Perroncel, so it all kicked off as they were all best mates and lived near each other.

Around the time Terry (and Lampard) was reported as having insulted Americans at Heathrow just after 9/11, I met his uncle.  His uncle simply said "John really is not very bright"  Here's a charge sheet https://www.joe.ie/sport/rap-sheet-the-crimes-and-misdemeanours-of-john-terry-28812

Who cares?

Just because it was reported by the Murdoch media misinformation bureau doesn’t make it true.

All I can think is these players get what they deserve from an unethical media.
Surely with their enormous wages and public profile they should behave better and be aware that youngsters in particular look at them as trend setters.

who cares what footballers do outside of a football stadium?
I couldn't care if Scott Parker  ended up shacking up with his mothers cousins dog.

I doubt you can say Giggs is a media darling, not that I read many papers but it's what's on the pitch that matters.

Filham: the crux is they are just not very educated or bright a lot of them.  And of course too much money, too much on a plate, too many distractions.

Terry never needs to work again yet I wonder what his interests are?  Not much outside the Chelsea bubble I suspect.  It will be interesting.  Bet he ends up at Bournemouth or Brighton.

As you say, it's what happens on the pitch that matters, having said that..........
I once saw a film made for TV about a fictional football club, and one scene showed the Stadium Manager turning on the floodlights late at night after a tip off, to find their star striker scoring with the Chairmans wife in the centre circle.
So from his point of view it certainly did matter what happens on the pitch.
But on this occasion he was caught offside, and the Chairmans wife was caught on all fours. That was a definate penalty, and she confirmed he was a good dribbler, and he was sharp in the box.
This made for TV film must have been about ten years ago or more, does anyone remember it.

Yea, I once saw a film made for TV about fictional moon landings.

I really enjoyed the absurdity of the concept and wonder why they stopped making them.

Does anyone remember them?

I’m not sure but I fink the film studios were called NASA or sumfing like that.

I reckon his mothers cousins dog might have something to say about that.
As you say, it's what's on the pitch that matters. It's was only the other day at a Sunday morning match which was delayed for about ten minutes due to all the dog poo that was laying on the pitch, which had to be cleared.
I am not saying it was Scott Parkers mothers cousins dog who was responsible for evacuating its bowels on this particular pitch. But I have been informed that, that particular breed was sighted in the phacinity recently by an independent witness.

What happens on the pitch is absolutely not the most instant thing.

Absolutely not.
