Foul Behaviour

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Regular readers will know of my disregard for millionaire footballers, so I’m always pleased to see them getting their come-uppances.

The behaviour of one Marlon King sums up the attiutude of too many professional footballers these days. The arrogant f***er was jailed for 18 months last week for sexual assault & ABH after he groped a female in a bar because he thought his fame & fortune entitled him to behave however the fuck he wanted regardless of any one else’s rights or opinions.

King, a £35,000-a-week player for Wigan Athletic was out celebrating his wife’s pregnancy & scoring a goal that day when he decided to sexually assault a female unknown to him by grabbing her backside. He had previosuly been seen on CCTV hugging a woman who completely ignored him. After his advances were spurned by the 20-year-old Law Student he used the phrase so typical of people like him “Don’t you know who I am, I’m a millionnaire” as if that gives him any kind of authority whatsoever. The woman said “Take your multi-millions and leave – no one cares. Just get away from the table’… I felt really embarrassed“.  King turned his attention to 2 of her friends. Marlon was said to have gotten annoyed at being rejected & grabbing the woman’s wrist & pulling her down whereupon she pushed him in the chest. He then punched her so hard in the face that she was felled & two other people were sent flying. He has done permanent damage to the woman’s face.

King has previously served five months for driving a stolen BMW & has 13 previous convictions including dishonesty, drink driving & violence. His offences for violence were exclusively against women. In 2003 he assualted two women after chasing them through Soho with a belt warpped round his wrist. In 2006 he was convicted of slapping a woman’s bottom & slapping her face then spitting on her when police arrived.

The one saving grace in the story was that Wigan sacked him within an hour of his conviction.

The victim in the case has called for his permanent exlcusion from professional football.
