Welcome to the overpaid world of professional soccer. Here in Britain some of the top players are earning the equivalent of $240,000 per week!

The funny thing is they think David Beckham is all of the sudden going to put soccer on the map in the US.

I know, I find that hilarious too. He's way past his best and only came to America because no European clubs would even consider paying him what he was asking for.

He's nice to look at but he is getting paid WAY too much and his wife is something else too. Ugh.

He is creating allot of attention for MLS which is a good thing, people are taking notice. The bad thing is, well, hes crap He has been overrated since the day he made his debut for Manure.

And I disagree, he moved here so his wife could live the lifestyle, not because no euro clubs would pay him.
