Re: Let’s Talk
as i said my opinion. U see, you infact left it open for an argument.
also i believe you truly didn’t mean the bit “even gaming. What’s the point of gaming, all you do is move your thumbs around to control pixels for a couple hours.”. its different in many ways, and you know that you know it. i like to watch boxing wen ever its on. i may not be that interested but i like golf. and snooker, pool.
the thing that disgusts me about football and rugby isn’t the game, but the thugish ‘people’ that go to fight the other ’supporters’ and the extremely gross amount of money footballers are on, just for running around for a bit. i mean all the shit thats wrong with this world and their gettin millions for kiking a ball about… sickening.
and i think the whole forum would agree with me on that.
Killer not everything has to be an argument. I'm sorry if you interpreted it as such. I was just saying that “not seeing the point” in something is a statement that can be used for almost anything if you arent involved/interested in it. That includes gaming. I personally don't think that about gaming… obviously, seeing as I game. But another person might. You took my statement too literally when it was only there to pose as an example.
I think it's a bit much to call people thuggish just because they are professional rugby and football players. And putting 'people' in quotes… are they less human than you or me? I hate to break it to you but boxers earn gross amounts of money as well but instead of running after a ball they bash eachothers faces in.
Of course, I do agree that its nonsensical for athletes and entertainers to be making more money than people who save lives for a living. However I don't think it's a reason to bash them. It's how society operates… it's not the athlete/entertainers fault they were lucky enough to get the exposure they needed for a skill they possess. I'm sure if you had the opportunity to make tons of money doing something you love and not being confined to the 9 to 5 shift day in and out, you would go for it. I think it would be hard to find someone who wouldn't. That doesn't make you a bad person. Heck, you could turn around and use your salary to help people in less fortunate living situations. I do recognize that there are multimillionaires out there who don't help though… and that is a problem.
