Comparison is not justified

AM I the only person who thinks that the photos of Wayne Rooney and David Henry side by side in the GAA Confidential article (Irish Independent, July 2) were highly insulting to the Dublin captain?

To compare an amateur sportsman, dedicated club player and primary school teacher with an overpaid and underperforming English "superstar", who failed miserably to live up to his pre-tournament hype, is a disgrace.

While I have no problem with the tongue-in-cheek article "Adopt a Country for your County", comparing the English soccer team with the Dublin senior football team to target one individual is wrong.
