I wonder how many of the cynics on here would turn down a salary of £150,000 a week if it was offered? "No boss, thanks very much for the offer but I'll stick with my £500"!
And how many of them would donate it all to a charity, especially when they know there will be people like them ready to jump on a forum and make nasty comments about it?
What nasty comments? have they been removed? I don't see any nasty comments on a few that have been mildly critical or sceptical.
So I shall add to it by saying that the tax situation in France of 75% makes it logical that someone of Beckham's wealth can afford to forego the other 25% and additionally appear altruistic! He benefits and a charity benefits...so it is win, win!
