The generosity of sports starts
I see Pep has donated 1,000,000 euros to Spain's Covid fight and Federer 1,000,000 Swiss Francs (£860,000) to their own battle.

I'm sure many others help out anonymously but it's good to hear that some of these mega-wealthy people are helping out when needed.

Also, I saw that the Stevenage players (presently bottom of League 2) have been delivering food packages to the vulnerable. I'll be rooting for them to stay up when the season get's going.

Oh, and it's just been announced on the OS that Gold and Sullivan have donated a tin of Heinz beans with sausages and two Arctic Rolls (it was BOGOF) to the local foodbank.

I reckon we should all stand on our doorsteps and cheer for Pep Guardiola at 6am tomorrow morning.

In fact, it could be argued that the tax that they would have paid before this was already going to the NHS, so a bit like Sullivan's big spending, really; no new money.

It is new money. Of £1 million gets tax relief at say 45%. The government would have got £450k, if not donated to charity.

With the donation the charity gets £1 million, the government doesn't get £450k. So £550k of new money.

Several clubs in the Bundesliga have taken wage cuts with Union Berlin foregoing their wages completely.
Still waiting to hear similar from our own over paid players.🙄

Charity donation?

Most or all of it will be tax deductible, so guess who's really giving this money over?

In fact, it could be argued that the tax that they would have paid before this was already going to the NHS, so a bit like Sullivan's big spending, really; no new money.

They would all help the situation greatly by not off-shoring their liabilities...AND if their clubs always paid HMRC on time.

I didn’t see you handing out adult toys and lingerie with the David’s at the stratford foodbank. Don’t criticise those trying to help.

Has Beckham announced a global press conference yet just so he can announce he's giving money to charity?


“Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven".
"So when you give to the needy, don’t announce it with trumpets"

Not a Sports Star but talking of 'Stars' that TOWIE Gemma Collins was in M&S in the week with her mother, 3 trolleys full of food and arse roll for her 'lockdown', had the M&S staff falling over themselves to help and even pushed the trollies around for her and then unload into her massive 4x4.

She then uploaded it onto her Instagram thingy, the video is doing the rounds on WhatsApp

Re: The generosity of sports starts
The NFL players are always very good with helping out their communities when needed and the actual organisation sorts out huge charity donations to things like forces charities.

Not sure if our greedy cunt FA do anything like that.

Re: The generosity of sports starts
I presume some are donating and keeping quiet about it.
I guess the positive of any publicity is that it encourages other stars with a few million quid hanging about to chip in.

Lewandowski donated 1m Euros I think
I saw that Shane Warne has arranged for his gin distillery to switch to production of hand sanitiser which he is giving to hospitals with the help of his business partners who I think are a couple medical professionals.

Fair play for their contribution but I would prefer it if 'sports stars' and the like could dig into their pockets and keep quiet about it. It doesn't impress me one bit that they feel the need to say how much they've donated.
