• Your headline, "Sad €13m-a-year Ronaldo ups ante in bid for pay rise", makes for very sad reading indeed. The greed here is breathtaking and demonstrates in spades the issue at the core of the problem, money.
If the soccer authorities are minded to do us all a favour, they should implement a pay ceiling for everyone operating with the game forthwith. There is no way that I could watch this grasping egotist in a game without my blood pressure rising dangerously.
I sincerely hope that both the GAA and rugby bodies are watching.
