Default Oh Eric WTF are you doing ?


I've been mildly amused by some of your adverts but to see you selling your arse like this saddens me.

I can forgive the cuban heels and the thespian ambitions but this circus monkey act is a step too far for me

Do you really need the money that bad.

Considering he hasn't played football in almost 20 years, yes, probably.

Yeh right his salary from the New York Cosmos (not forgetting his 1million court case) and the adverts and endorsments are more than enough to have kept the wolf at the door surely.

Maybe it's just me but I feel he's cheapened himself here.It feels a bit like Johnny Rotten going utterly butterly.

I'm sure that others will have a different take but for me it's sad to see one my heroes sell their arse so ignominiously to the soccer am demographic

It's hardly that bad in terms of advertising. Telling people they need to wash theit hair a particular way, dress in certain clothes and join the army is much worse

I appreciate what you're saying and understand that he's not selling anything immoral but I just expected more of him that's all.

The problem lies with me most probably and the lofty pedestal that I'd placed him upon.It just saddens me to see him go the way of The Fonz

The 1m court case was because they never paid him his salary.

Fair enough but i'm sure he has more than enough shekels in his bank account to cover the bills and be a bit choosy about the jobs he takes on.

Surely he's no need to take the Robert DeNiro route and take on any old shite for a paycheck

Yeah, you'd hope so. I did read something recently about really famous people who are not actually very wealthy - quite a few of them were footballers from before the salaries exploded. He hasn't had a regular TV gig with a major network or anything, has he? I don't know how much his acting brings in.

Actor in "doing a bit of acting" shocker. Maybe he just enjoys it.

I have no problem with him doing this. I just wish the script were better.
