The Daily Drool – Drool Amnesty: John Terry

24 Apr

31266354I can already hear the blood curdling screams as another controversial figure appears (fair enough, I’m with you) but folks, that’s the whole point of Drool Amnesty! Here’s watishista Laurean’s rationale: “Ugh my guilty pleasure is probably John Terry. I can’t help but find him hot! But I still want to smack him lol. His bromance with Lampsey is my fave in the premier league.”  I gotta admit that particular bromance begat my all time favorite Futbol Text From Last Night.

Watishista Jenny found us something redeemable about John (not that it excuses all the bad behavior, mind): “I would not screw him, but he pays, out of his own salary, for Chelsea’s women’s team because the board was going to disband them as a cost-saving measure. I like that about him. ”  From the looks of this article, he doesn’t foot the entire bill, but he’s a big help and also acts as their president.

    Each to their own. :))

    Yeah, I had read about his support of the Chelsea’s women’s team earlier. That’s at least one redeemable factor about him I suppose.

      In my defence, I always felt the same way as the vast majority of right thinking women, ie that the man was an absolute hound. All of that is indefensible so I’m not even going to try. So anyway I was over my mum’s house and saw a photo in a newspaper (I wasn’t wearing my glasses) and thought: Hmmn, that’s a well dressed man – nice blue roll neck, good shoes, wonder who he is? some actor probably… OH MY FUCKING GOD IT’S JOHN TERRY. I’VE JUST HAD INADVERTANT SEXUAL THOUGHTS ABOUT JOHN TERRY

      So in the interest of integrity I feel the need to share (just here mind, and under conditions of anonymity) that I find him sexually attractive.

        meh trust me he does dress quite well for being a footballer most of who often times have no sense of style

        I mean, if I knew nothing about him and saw that picture, I would think “Hmmm, hot” but, you know… 😉

    This guy does need amnesty.

    learning what he’s done for chelsea’s women’s side definitely made me think differently about him. that’s mighty respectable on his part.

    • Jenny April 25, 2013 at 1:18 am #

      Another thing: he genuinely wants his daughter, Summer, playing football.

      Too many footballers do not focus on their daughters’ playing and only on their sons’ (Xabi Alonso, anyone?).

      As someone else noted – this man NEEDS amnesty desperately – so let’s find reasons to give him parole for a start.

      • Mehreh April 25, 2013 at 11:03 am #

        that is so awesome to hear! i grew up with girl footballers and they are as fierce and talented (more in a lot of cases) as any boy. if i had a daughter, i’d definitely encourage her into sports.

        • Jenny April 25, 2013 at 7:01 pm #

          It’s something that has always made me very cool toward Xabi.

          He’s only interested in his son’s sporting development.

          But if you look at Spain’s WNT it’s a national problem, frankly.

          • headbandsandheartbreak April 25, 2013 at 7:39 pm #

            Or perhaps the question was posed to him in the context of did he want his son to play football, follow in the old man’s footsteps like Xabi did with his dad, etc. Perhaps Ane never came up. Why not give him the benefit of the doubt? Why jump to that conclusion based on one comment? It’s a bit harsh.

    erm, pretty certain it was proved that the cheating with teammates’s ex was unfounded. Think she sued. I totally agree with this drool 🙂

    • Jenny April 25, 2013 at 1:20 am #

      He did not cheat, that’s true. It came out later it was a press fabrication.

    Use of this picture is unfair!! Those are some serious hip dips, and do I see some hair peeking out?!

    Its hard for me to not to find this man attractive, even after all the horrid things he’s done, but he’s so hot to me….i’m glad there’s amnesty for him
    Also whenever I see the coach Caleb Porter he reminds me if Terry

    Ok fine, I give Terry props for what he’s doing with Chelsea Ladies. Honestly, when I see him in interviews and TV specials, he’s not that bad… if you can will yourself to forget what he is for a few minutes. I actually kinda enjoyed the fishing trip thing he did with James Corden.

    Anyhow, since we’re talking a bit about women’s football in England, can I just say it’s sad that the highest-paid women’s players there earn less in a season than what many male players make in a month? I believe they had to put a price cap on salaries to keep the women’s clubs financially viable for their owners. I’m not sure if it’s better or worse in other European countries, but I did read somewhere that the reason Tyreso’s been able to keep Marta is because her wages are paid for separately by a sponsor.

    If the NWSL looks stable after the 2013 season, I expect quite a few players will come back to the US. There’s a salary cap there as well, but I think there will also be more sponsors willing to do deals like Marta’s just to attract the big names. The important thing is that there’s a big market for women’s soccer in the US, and with that comes good TV coverage, more publicity, and endorsement deals.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread! Giving it back now…

    Before I knew jack all about him, I must admit John Terry was my first soccer crush. But one glorious summer day, there he was… Mesut Ozil….FIFA World Cup 2010….my life (and taste) changed forever (and for the better)
    . Of course, then I started reading, too……
