Footballers Are People Too

Postby FCBayernMunchen » Sat Jan 09, 2016 8:35 pm

I came across this video and thought it would be nice to start this kind of thread. The media tends to focus a lot on players' scandals and their negative actions. We do too. We have a thread on diving (though it's inactive now) for example. Just recently we've brought up Hazard's ballboy incident.

It would be good to remember the positive moments too and collect them in this thread.

We will rise again! (when we stop burying our heads in the sand)

These professional athletes are just normal people, they are great at something, but maybe bad at other things. Once they make a whole of money and endorsements, everyone from their neighbourhood, family wants a piece of their fame and glory. When scandals, arrests are exposed by the media, it is exaggerated to extreme lengths. I admire their humanitarian contributions, but there could be a side that we might not see from the footballers (eg: Cristiano Ronaldo being a resident of Trump towers in New York which houses corrupt organisations and wanted people and even Donald Trump himself). We as the international community look at these people as influential, but some can be influencing in the wrong ways through religion, censorship or their personal beliefs and decisions.

Media in general is quite biased. We won't hear much about the humanitarian efforts that footballers take part in most of the time like building a new school in Africa (like Kuffour did), but some stuff like that John Terry/Wayne Bridge extra marital affairs just benefits the media in generating more money. When the media bosses and corporations are exposed, nobody really cares.

Mehmet Scholl once offered a mixtape CD to Oliver Kahn. Kahn replied: Do you want me to shoot myself? Keep your crap to yourself.

Klose is about to retire... I'd love to see him work something for us. He speaks Italian and I think that he mentioned interest in coaching... I'd appreciate his personality around the club.

Me too. One of my favourite players... I was so delighted when we signed him.

Klose is a class act. Love him.
Jesus saves, but Kahn does it better ;)

CHRISTIAN PANUCCI

Image

The hand of fate

It’s Wednesday July 17, 1996 in New York City and AC Milan defender Christian Panucci is pacing the departure lounge at John F. Kennedy airport. He is waiting for the first of two connecting flights that will take him back to his home land. It is late afternoon, he is getting tired and to make matters even worse, he has just been informed that his luggage has mysteriously vanished.

His mind flashes back to a few days earlier: He had been in Atlanta, Georgia, preparing for the 1996 Summer Olympics having been named captain of Italy by Coach Cesare Maldini. Then, during a routine warm-up match, he picked up an injury and was forced to leave the Italian camp. He curses his luck and continues pacing.

With the clock ticking towards the departure time of his TWA flight to Paris, and his suitcases still nowhere to be seen, Panucci approaches a member of Alitalia airways staff and explains his situation. The sympathetic worker checks the schedule and explains that there are seats available on a later flight heading direct to Milan. Unfortunately, it is departing from Newark airport which is an hour’s cab-ride, traffic permitting.

After ordering another strong coffee and weighing up his options, Panucci decides that taking the later Alitalia flight would make more sense. Not only will it increase his chances of being reunited with his luggage, but it also means that he can avoid a stop-off in Paris and a domestic flight from Rome to Milan. He walks back to the Alitalia desk to make the necessary arrangements, unaware that he has just made a decision that will ultimately save his life.

Shortly before 8:00pm, while the two-time Serie A champion is preparing to make the journey west to Newark, the last boarding call is made for the TWA flight 800 from New York to Paris. Several minutes later, with the gate finally closed, the plane taxis towards the runway and is given the all-clear for take-off.

Flight 800 never made it to Paris. Just 46 minutes into its journey, the Boeing 747 crashed into the sea off Long Island, killing all 230 passengers on board.
