Goodbye and Farewell

Is it pure greed that motivates them Or could it be that they're insecure That they are lost without it... Do they really think anyone cares about them 'going back to work' Do they value publicity, fame adulation and little boys' games so highly that they're willing to risk their very lives... All these filthy-rich sports stars can disappear tomorrow and I, a former sports fan fanatic, would cheer that development Let them get real for a change The people in this country are fighting for our lives. We don't give a hoot about professional sports anymore Goodbye, Labron James! Goodbye, James Harden! Goodbye, Tom Brady! Goodbye, Bryce Harper Farewell and good riddance!

I expect some are suicidal by now, due to the lack of applause and glowing words of affection from millions who would not recognize them in street clothes without numbers.

All of a sudden they have lost the spotlight and its eating them, this virus has certainly put things into perspective. Family and friends are all that matters. Too much greed in this world. Tom

True words. The sports star in UK earn about 5 million pounds a week and have taken Government furlough claiming they were out of job! Media rules the world and decides who should rule or be rich or poor! I am with you Gershon!

Can you even imagine earning 5 million pounds a week?! And then claiming unemployment compensation! No wonder we could care less about these spoiled brats! Thanks, Krish
