David Beckham's new deal to join The LA Galaxy is reputed to be worth around quarter of a billion dollars.
Now I'm all for a chap making a decent living, however that seems to have gone a wee bit over the top.The Galaxy, citing industry experts, said Beckham's deal is worth more than $250 million in salary and commercial endorsements and is "thought to be the biggest in sporting history."
Is it right that someone should be paid that sum of money for playing soccer (or anything for that matter) and for their ability to advertise stuff. It seems obscene to me. You could invade a small country with that kind of cash.
