    Put it this way then, they spend more time with their parents than they do their favourite footballer

    And hopefully educating them into thinking that life is not all about winning.
    There is more to life than just glory winners.
    Some people / many people / most people never achieve their aspirations.
    Trying to do so is the most important thing.
    The Olympic spirit.
    You can obviously disagree but then we become at loggerheads!

    Footballers win trophies. Medals are handed out as a result of winning trophies or getting to a final.

    Its not the same as the Olympics, where individuals represent their countries. They stand for their national anthem as part of a ceremony, a ceremony that doesnt occur in football.

    Think you're being a bit too demanding of footballers to behave as you see fit.
    If they want to take a medal off, give it into the fans or whatever else that is their business as far as I'm concerned.
