Holding Football to Higher Standards
For some reason, professional footballers behaving badly continue to be held up as some of moral compass about how there is a general decay in society, lack of decorum, a dumbing down and dwindling standards relating to how human beings treat each other.
In other sports such as cricket and rugby union, where the participants and spectators, generally attract a lesser earthy and more niche middle class crowd, some may say a smattering of snobs, old money and the nouveau riche, drunken antics are viewed as a touch of high jinks.
That quote is from the latest Early Doors post on Eurosport.
The misdemeanour doesn’t have to be so grand either. Don’t blame the sport blame the player. Don’t judge the sport judge the incident.
