what a wanker
it's impressive that he's managed to come across as more of a cunt than he did on these boards.
this was a thread about Lee Elam, former Southport and Weymouth winger.
Apologies.. He was no Tony Lynch though was he?
Tony Lynch's dreadlocks - they were probably the highlight of his spell at Hendon. I know Elam was at Weymouth earlier this season but I think he ended up going back northwards..
"You can think it's taking away the chance for genuine fans to get their tickets, but I've got to make my money and it's better than being like most kids and going out causing trouble on the streets. "
Yup, because that's EXACTLY what most kids do
wanted to speak to me, too.
Thinking about what I would have said, I'm quite worried that it could have been spun the exact same this was.
He touts way more than I do, though.
But we did the + and - of what I do to death in the other thread.
This kid isn't a wanker for touting. He's a wanker for trying to rationalize it and try to justify his actions using anything but greed. If he'd just said "I do it for the money" then that is fine. Money as an acceptable motivation for doing something. But to claim that it's not taking away from real music fans because he "has to make his money somehow" is ludicrous. The two are totally unrelated.
I also fail grasp his point about it being better than being on the streets. What the hell is he on? As he says himself he just takes an hour off school. It's hardly an all encompassing hobby, is it?
