Motorists, Equity & Unity Party | Archive Index | Main Site | No. 21  The Astronomical wages of our footballers If the supporters stayed away there wouldn’t be any money to pay the wages of the office staff, let alone the players demanding such high remuneration for their talents. When the players have the same amount of enthusiasm as the supporters then perhaps they can demand these Astronomical wages.   Until that time, they should be grateful for wages that the average mortal will never achieve in their entire lifetime. Shame on any player that thinks £30,000 per week is not enough. © 2004 - 2017
