A club of two halves

The reputation of football's playing fraternity was not enhanced yesterday when it emerged that 85 people had been shown the door by financially stricken Portsmouth while only two players had offered to take pay cuts to save the fate of the less well-off.
This blog does not usually comment on matters concerning Association Football, but this story takes the half-time orange.  Whilst appreciating that professional footballers have significant hairdressing expenses, one cannot help remarking something to the effect of "what a bunch of overpaid mercenary gits."

There is no apparent limit to human greed, or lack of empathy.

Perhaps I am merely tired but I can't help but think we are sooooo screwed.
