Australia’s football empire is approaching religious cult like status, where the herd of its worshipers condemn anyone who is not a follower.
This is both done at the lowest common denominator level, from the follower, right up to the highest level of politics and corporate business.
Oppression in the workplace is common, that if you don’t follow the footy, you are un-Australian. You have to follow a football team otherwise you are looked at as if there is something wrong with you. In this politically correct world, one can choose to follow or not follow whatever sport they desire without criticism.
The mass media elevates, the simple sport ball throwers to ‘Gods’, and hero’s. Many of their actions make the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
Judges commonly give footballers lenience or suspended sentences, where if the same crimes were committed by the general populous, the outcome would be harsher. There is a deliberate policy from the top, to leave these people alone.
A common philosophy amongst footballers is that of treating women with not only disrespect, but also as objects for fulfilling a sexual desire, only to be disposed of shortly after.
As a result of this promiscuous behaviour it has been noticed by medical staff at major hospitals that approximately 70% of footballers have STD’s (Sexually Transmitted Diseases).
The football industry is plagued with various legal troubles, that include;
match fixing, corporate fraud, illegal gambling, allegations of rape, drunken disorderly, drug use, confirmed links to underworld crime figures and other illegal activities.
Amongst the tarnished reputation, allegations and court appearances the industry stands not only tall and proud, those who allege any wrong doings, their lives are shattered and are humiliated with the support of the mass media.
Recruitment of footballers starts from an early age, as the selection process begins in the early years of primary school education. Those who are seen by teachers to be lacking in intellect are coerced into forging a career in football. As a result it is widely accepted that footballers are not the brightest individuals.
The AFL alone is now approaching a billion dollar industry, and as a result must continue to flourish and not wane. The amount of monies spent by the masses this year will be close to $2 billion, as reported by the Herald Sun, with approximately $1 billion to be spent for alcohol.
The Australian Football League (AFL), previously known as the Victorian Football league (VFL), was born in the working class suburbs of Melbourne, to keep the blue collar workers amused on the weekends.
