beckham in oz

mixed feelings about this possibility …

whoever signs him for 10 days is getting a good player, is creating an amazing boost to ground attendances and media for the league while he is here, and might bag some extra points in the league (that could mean a premiership, a top 2 spot or something good like that).

but being here for 10 games, he isn’t gonna be around to help at the business end of the season.  And beckham, the player, is a hard worker with some talent, who made the most of his career and has been a part of teams that have won big.  But the circus that surrounds him – hey, why not sign Usain Bolt for 10 games?  Or Robbie Williams or Justin Bieber?  That’ll get media attention.  I start to picture a desperate sport that will do anything to pay the rent.

i guess i have mixed feelings about fairweather fans as well.
