Wayne Rooney, for instance, has been known to play FIFA 2010 for up to eight hours at a time.
Away on England duty, he hides away in his room with his console, the only evidence that he is still alive the occasional yelps of celebration that filter through the walls. Fernando Torres too recently revealed that his idea of a great night is to head home, get online and play FIFA against a couple of old mates back in Spain. In fact, if we are to criticise most modern players for their off-field behaviour it is to suggest they are crushingly dull.
This is what King should have aspired to when he became a Premier League footballer: dullness. Or rather, an awareness that the simple act of earning large amounts of money does not make you special nor excuse you from adhering to the same rule of law as the rest of us. Virtually every player accepts that reality when they sign their first contract. If they don't, they are soon made aware of the requirements by their senior colleagues.
From Eurosport, I lol'd HARD.
