Modern Football Is An Industry That Will Close Shop Soon Haha....And May It Happen Sooner Than Later

Modern football is an industry that is heading to its natural doom. With players nowadays costing 200 million pounds and the salaries of some of the players hitting 500,000 pounds or more per week we are talking madness.

In Bolehland terms, 200 million pounds is a cool billion ringgit. With the kind of money you could set up not just a business but a conglomerate.

Why would anyone think that a mortal football player is worth that kind of money? And with each passing year, the costs only skyrocket.

That is the kind of madness that is gripping the so-called beautiful game today. All because of the insatiable ego to stay one step ahead of others.

But big time spending is no absolute guarantee of big time success.

There must come an end to the madness. Because you can't operate a business when the costs of doing business go up and up and up in the twinkling of an eye.

A player has optimistically a 10 year shelf-life if acquired in his early 20s. If acquired in his mid 20s, he has optimistically only half of that shelf-life!

Not to mention that at any moment he may be seriously injured and out of the equation entirely. Insurers may think the premiums justify the risks.

Fools are always blinded by quick money.

And modern football by its big time ego.

May it die a quick death to save everyone the indignity of being part of the folly and having to pay big time for it.

Ha ha....

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
