1) Lance Armstong
2) Jimmy Savile
newcastle and blackburn hero, one of the best strikers of his era, as well as one of the best england's ever produced (supposedly)
Match of the day `pundit`, getting newcastle relegated as `manager`
Pretty bad fall from grace right there.
Haha, how could I forget. Sorry, I was thinking more about some kinda sexing issue or something.
but appears to be absolutely bulletproof despite the insanities
although i like to think more intelligent people see him as pondscum despite any zealous fans maintaining he's incredible
If Arsenal don't win something this season I think it's in the shit time. The Norwich result isn't exactly helping. LOL
I mean, they've consistently done well in the league. They're hardly a shit team by any means.
No silverwear in what, 7 years or something? That's significantly failing expectations. Bloody funny, but still.
Imagine shagging your brother's wife. Imagine it. So fucking wrong. On top of shagging some other bird who also isn't your wife. What a cunt of the highest order.
or however you fucking spell it
He was my favourite British actor :(
At least people bought Ulrika Jonsson's book though eh?
I totally forgot about him
(that's the twist)
you know many reptiles have the ability to lose their tails or shed their skin in order to escape their predators - just sayin'
Oh, DiS, never change.
I've got to work at it.
that they could become well known and lose their rep within the decade.
well i don't care, IT'S TRUE
at least amongst my family. did quite a bit for cancer charities as he was dying of it himself, but also a massive, massive racist.
FUCK YOU. sorry, but this is an awful thing to say (what you said, obvs)
none of them were racists, though.
a bigot, maybe. even this is questionable.
not just 'go back to where you came from', but a little bit more on top of that. two family members have.
our school football team won a county tournament. he gave us about 10 boxes of soccer shields (like love hearts, but football ones) and 5 flat mitre footballs.
he was wearing a sheepksin jacket and loads of gold rings. he was massive.
a few years ago someone got really drunk down the pub and Gazza was in and they asked him why he can't just move on, and told him that he's better than all of this
to Ron Atkinson dishing out badges to Gazza being praised in a pub with no seemingly obvious connections between he posts to make a proper conversation.
I need literacy people. Literacy.
he calls me carl cort!
Travis Bickle, Vito Corleone, Jake la Motta, Rupert Pupkin, Jimmy Conway>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Little Fockers, Shark Tale
no. they still happened.
the performances he sends in by post these days all the more infuriating
he's only served to maintain his legacy. Does anyone really doubt that he could still pull out big performances?
Doesn't really mean he's a worse actor than he was before though.
He'll probably have a brief resurgence in his 70s when he makes one last film with Scorsese.
I think we've essentially established that
- paedophilia automatically kills you dead
- disgrace in your chosen field automatically kills you dead (Hari, Armstrong), but that's good news for Hollywood because there's no such thing as actual disgrace there.
Beyond that, these should kill you dead but generally don't:
- membership of evil cults
Just a sad commentary on the many names mentioned vs. the actual level of public disgrace they've recieved.
or do you not believe is social rehabilitation?
I meant violence perpetrated by the person without provocation or that isn't proportional to the provocation. I guess there will always be grey areas. Had Chris Brown been incredibly contrite I would probably feel differently about his Teflon situation.
I just worry it is harder to rehabilitate the general population (plebs if you will), if we're not seen to in high profile cases.
I agree with you on Chris Brown, but that guy clearly has some quite serious mental health issues.
The marketing machine obviously believes its better to tough it out rather than for someone to fall on their sword and then request forgiveness.
The 'mob' that all people create is never forgiving, but individuals are.
just wish it wasn;t so
Michael Jackson was massively hit post-scandal but, again, it's not like we're seeing with Jimmy Savile. He wasn't found guilty, it's not as clear cut.
being found guilty?
whatever your thoughts on him.
See also Tom Cruise.
Freddie might as well have been dead for the last decade until I booted up my copy of Mass Effect 3 and there he was, voice-acting Brohawk quite effectively. Apparently, not dead.
I remember that actually.
Total album sales: 20 million +
Last album: 3,200
i think some people went to jail and then there was no one to pay for videos like that Grease one with Ashanti
I think it's fairly widely accepted that the label was funded through organised crime, but his downfall is attributed to the beef with 50, a load of delayed records, and probably just a change in what's hip.
Was popular a decade ago, I believe.
national treasure --> Toilet Dog
he's not a Kiwi. He's Australian.
Nah. He was always a cunt.
I suppose she's kind of making a comeback now but it would be interesting to see what would have happened if she'd continued on the same trajectory that she was on when Mean Girls was released.
