Title: Would You?
Post by: macabre on May 24, 2011, 02:58:12 PM
Okay guys the big talking point for the media in the UK at the moment is a well known football player getting an injunction out on a lady he was having a sexual relationship with.
This guy has a massive fanbase and also several lucrative money deals.
Now this guy also tried to sue twitter because people had guessed who he was and they wrote his name on twitter,due to all this the guy has been getting ripped apart by media and the public.
Now if you was very rich and in the public eye and you said/did something that would tarnish your reputation would you think nothing of spending thousands of pounds to keep it quiet or due to principle would you just come right out and tell the truth and suffer the consequences? let us just say for arguments sake if you did take out an injunction the public would never know.

Better to come out and tell the truth. People will respect you more for doing so, than spending money trying to hide it. As they say "the truth always comes out in the end". Plus, if you're in the public eye and you live in the lap of luxury, one must expect a mauling from the media now and again as that is society these days...

I'd come out with it balls-first. In fact, I'd exaggerate the situation, make it sound like an even BIGGER deal than it is, that way, you'd have a bunch of people saying you're lying and that it didn't happen. Kinda like what Buddy Hackett said about confession: "If I could confess, I'd make s**t up. 'That's right Father, I scr**ed a giraffe, he came into the bar and said "the high balls are on me!"'"

I'd fess up. What the hell. Did this woman instigate it? If she didn't-I wouldn't say anything. Just because it became a problem for me-I wouldn't want to drag her down with me. BUT-if she did it-I'd describe-in pornographic detail to one and all.
I mean,hell-if she want's the world to know we're f%cking-may as well give them the whole story.

I don't get it. Who CARES what his sex life is like anyway? I mean-even if he bought a hooker-who cares? Does it affect his football playing? Is he transmitting a diasese to others? Do we really need to know?
I'ts like the thing with Ahnohld...he has an illigetimite kid-he's getting a divorce. I don't feel it's my business to pass judgement. Are we all so perfect that we should point fingers and cluck our toungues?
It's kinda like Nixon saying Manson is a murderer. Sure-Manson was an evil SOB who sent kids out to kill for him. So did Nixon.
