So we have Rooney. Thrust into stupid wages at the age of 17/18 without a decent education but alas now he's worth a stupid amount of money and like most football players does what the fuck he wants. Watching a documentary last night about American Football where quite a large proportion of the professionals were required to reach a certain standard in College/Uni to be allowed to play and earn their stupid wages. Biggest reason behind this was the risk factor of being injured, they needed a respectable qualification(s) to fall back on. Maybe something Premiership Club youth systems should look at?
