Sick of all the crap on here re: 'bloke who wont pay' and 'Expert' business plans.
So I thought it good to discuss something unrelated.
Am I alone in thinking that our GB Athletes should NOT be paid the huge sums of money they currently get?
I researched it and the top ones get between £30 - £60k per annum. PLUS their own sponsorship!
I think, that if they do not finish any race on the podium they should be made to pay EVERY penny back that they have received!
In reality though they should get NOTHING and get a job like the rest of us, and train in their own time after work!
Some lesser sports [motor sport in particular] competitors have to PAY out of their own pocket just to compete! I sponsored my brother who races motorbikes at Aberdare Park last weekend, and apart from the other costs the entry fee alone was over £100 plus £20 for each 6 lap race!
Why do the BBC and government just assume that everyone only likes Darts, snooker, golf and 'cheating' athletics?
