England Debates Beckham Knighthood

 

Newspapers and sporting legends alike turned up the heat last night in the debate over whether former England captain David Beckham is worthy of a knighthood. The debate follows a report in the Evening Standard that Beckham was being considered.

Jack Charlton, one of England's 1966 World Cup winners, said: "I'd have no objection to him being knighted because it's what he deserves. He's played nearly 100 times for England and has been a good professional."

Critic and former England striker Jimmy Greaves, however, said: "I can't think of a single reason why David Beckham should get a knighthood. It's beyond me. He doesn't even deserve the honour as a football player."

  Since when...  
 
...is being good at your job worthy of a knighthood? It should be even less worthy considering how much they get paid to do their jobs. I say knight the guy who always turns up to work at McDonalds on time and never complains. The whole knighthood thing is just a farce now anyway. It means absolutely nothing any more.

  Well...  
 
if you didn't think knighthood was rubbish before this, now you probably do. How is it possible that this dude is considered for the same honor that Isaac Newton received?

  Knighthood!?  
 
Don't they give those away in boxes of specially marked cereals!?

That reminds me I'm due for knighthood, I found one last month in my box of Cheerios.

  Knighthood!!  
 
For what exactly.......kicking a ball around a piece of grass!

And being paid uber money for the privilege.

They are obviously short of hero's to knight, perhaps they should look at some of our guys in Iraq or perhaps medical pioneers or ordinary people who everyday strive to make our society better for no reward.

Another example of how my country would rather choose banality over true heroism.
