I'm not picking up a fight with you Joe, I've been around here long enough to understand that you have a lot of knowledge, but that you also are sometimes a bit finicky about stuff.All generalisations are dangerous - even this one.
By saying it is a private matter I clearly read this as Wayne have a problem with alcohol.A statement from DC United said: "We are aware of news reports indicating that Wayne Rooney was arrested in December.
"We understand the media's interest in this matter but we believe this is a private matter for Wayne that DC United will handle internally. We have no further comment on this situation."
What they dont understand is that it is not a private matter for Rooney or any other high profile player when they choose to accept over-inflated wages, have played for and captained their country and until recently (in Rooney's case) prominent PL clubs!
Role modelling should be incorporated in their contracts!
Harry presents as a very level headed family guy who is appreciating that you never get anything except by hard work. He will end up as Spurs highest goal scorer surpassing the great Greaves and he is one of the corner stones of the Spurs revival and renewal.You just can't see Harry behaving like that and he got worse press for claiming a goal he had every right to claim.
Rooney is not a very nice individual, too much, too soon IMO.
