Some silly Dutch soccer club

Postby kiwi_in_Oz » Tue Dec 26, 11:50 pm

Rotterdam football club Feyenoord has suspended a player for one match and two training sessions after he was caught on camera eating a white bread roll and croquette during half-time in this week’s cup match against Heracles Almelo. Michiel Kramer is out of the squad for this weekend’s game against Roda JC and will also have to pay a fine, Feyenoord said. ‘Michiel acted unprofessionally and in an unacceptable manner,

Because he was being quite rude, really, quite disgraceful behavior. They should've thrown him out of the match! What if the crowd had wanted some? Was he willing to share? Apparently not and as such shouldn't have been seen stuffing his face during halftime.

That would be a faux pas of epic proportion if it occurred in american sports, taking a knee during the national anthem, not so much tho.

Wasnt that long ago some rugby players would have a cigarette at half time !

Here is a story about an Ozzie legend who died last week , R.I.P. Stan

The big prop was enjoying a sly cigarette on the reserves bench in Mendoza when Wallabies coach Bob Templeton nudged him in the ribs and ordered him on as an injury replacement.

The obedient Pilecki climbed to his feet and took off. Not until he was halfway across the field did he realise he still had the smoke tucked between two fingers. He stopped, calculated how long it would take to get back to the sideline and then decided to take evasive action.

His team-mates, who were waiting for their new prop to join the scrum, observed with open mouths as Pilecki went to work.

"The problem was that it took me a minute to get the bloody thing out and everyone was just standing there watching and waiting for me, " Pilecki recalled this week as he tucked a gasper in the corner of his mouth and eased back on the couch in his Brisbane home.

"That is the problem with having tags on the bottom of your boots, they are no good for putting out your fags."
