Just disgusted!

I may not be a huge David Beckham fan but now I really think the guy is a selfish, childish idiot! He was scheduled to host a Charity Gala Dinner in aid of the Cf Trust at the Dorchester and pulled out at the last minute (literally there were only two hours before the dinner started!) with no proper explanation. He was probably in a strop beacuse he was not selected for the England team. According to his agent he was ordered back to LA by his football team for fitness tests- could he not delay for one night? Its not like he can't afford the plane ticket. Also if he knew it was a possibility that he would have fitness tests at this time why did he agree to the event in the first place- its all rather too coincidental. What makes it even sadder is that Theirry Henry who organised this event asked him to be his substitue as he knew he would not be able to host the event, and he was saying how great it was that Beckham had agreed to be his sub and what a fantastic guy he is- all rather hollow now.

Apparently a freind of Beckham is quoted as saying "David is beyond gutted. All he wanted was to play and get a 100th England cap.” Well quite frankly big deal! It is not like he is never going to play football again, or that he might not get reselected and it certainly is not the end of the world as football is just a game (whatever anyone says!). Just because he does not get what he wants at this point in time he goes off in a huff back to LA leaving the CF Trust and Thierry Henry's event in the lurch. Its bad enough that he left a charity it a difficult position but letting down your freinds like that is unnacceptable. He should be ashamed!

Here's the newspapers reactions-

And yes, before anyone points out that the main reason I am annoyed is cos its The CF Trust and that he does loads of charity work, I would like to say that I would be righteously indignant which ever charity it was. When someone as fortunate as Beckham-and lets face it he has pretty much everything anyone could want and a stupid amount of money for just playing a game, lets people down like that it just shows how selfish he is and sets a really bad example to all his fans. He should realise just how lucky he is and be grateful that he is in a position to help charities and not be one of the people who need the help.
