I'd understood £1m per week, but at the moment whether £ or $, it doesn't make much difference. He and Victoria should be able to afford to offset their CO2 emissions from so many air flights.

Which is outrageous? That he is able to accept the payment, or that someone is willing to pay it? It takes two parties to strike the deal :)

Beckham is being paid that much because of the image he will help create IMO

You'd be cheating if it was filled with hot air... Which you are TGG ;) ;)

Since the Mythbusters tested that filling the ball with helium makes it fly less far, maybe you're off the hook.

What an indictment of society's despicable values.
Equal rights for equal responsibilities.
Equal opportunities for equal abilities.

LOL.

If they want me to play football (I'm trying to use the correct terms here...) then they will be extremely disappointed. There are days when I have trouble walking without tripping over my own feet.

Ugh... bad flashbacks of elementary school gym class....
Kathryn :o)

Now that Beckham is so unfit for anything but fashion adverts, could Tony Blair eventually overtake his earnings?

* Teaching religion and management at Yale

* Special envoy so successfully promoting peace in the Middle East, 10 days per month

* Financial advisor to Zurich Financial Services, £50 000 per month

* Worldwide speaking engagements arranged by Washington Speakers Bureau Inc

* Part-time advisory role to bankers JP Morgan, said to be worth somewhere between £500,000 and £2.5m a year

He very generously advises the Rwandan government free of charge, but how much time he has to help Rwanda in future may depend on whether he also gets the European presidency. He seems to have added Sarkozy to his illustrious coterie of supporters, which may help him to get it.

Does anyone out there want my advice?

It's not quite that much you have to remember that is including endorsements and the whole nine. That means "up to" 250 per year. That would be the maximum limit it could approach. He's looking at making only a small fraction of that right now.
