Wayne Rooney gets £200,000 from EA Annually, just for Using his Face.

38 second read


According to the financial records of the world’s richest swine Wayne Rooney receives £200K from Electronic Arts every year, just for the use of his likeness. That’s just under 2 and a half million Rand, or 30 803 kilograms of Pick ‘n Pay streaky bacon.

Rooney – undoubtedly of porcine heritage – striker for Manchester Utd and England earns more than £760,000 a month for image rights. This, I feel, is far too much. Wouldn’t it be more cost effective to photoshop a Man Utd uniform on to a porcine farm animal of some sort? At least we know how he affords all those pies he obviously keeps stuffing in his face.

      the writer was not dissing his football talent, but rather focusing on the fact that such an ugly face (no one can dispute that) can garner that sort of payment.

      it is an insane amount of money for doing jack

        Can’t they just put a football on the cover? I don’t mean to be rude or anything, but young Rooney is a rapidly balding twenty-something, who looks like someone who’s approaching their 40s. Sadly, unlike many other 40-somethings, this man has no sex appeal. :getlost:
