    Default Lineker's At It Again

    Gary Lineker tackles homework claiming it's too stressful | Daily Mail Online

    It's alright for his 4 sons - they are living off their father's fame and so don't need a decent education, bit like the Beckhams too.

    Lineker told Sport magazine: 'Homework should be banned. All it does is drive a massive wedge between parents and children because you end up having to do it for them, and it's stressful.
    This comes after the former England striker famously became embroiled in a spat with a top public school after his son George failed to get into university.
    Funny that.

    He should stick to selling crisps.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    More brain cells and less footballing talent and the preachy winker would have been in an office job and nobody would have known him. Never been one for humility though. Then again, if he wasn't a thicky, he wouldn't be worried about helping his kids with their homework.

    He should have paid for private tutoring.

    Then again I know both tutors and public school teachers who say some of their pupils are just thick.

    Oh look, lets all pile in on the successful, good-looking person. Such bitter jealousy.

    Amidst a world of clots and overpaid chavs, Linekar is one of those who is articulate and clearly not stupid.

    Can't we focus on Robbie Savage?

    Not jealous at all and very much appreciative of his efforts for England (I even felt sorry for him being subbed off the way he was). He's certainly no intellectual though; he got four O-levels but he's had media coaching to present himself well. Homework clearly isn't important if you're not academic, but that's a whole different topic.


    Robbie's just bitter about United that he wasn't kept on after being part of the "Class of 92". His opinions aren't worth much because they're generally filled with bitterness. That said, why focus on Robbie Savage? What's he said about homework?

    If it's in Tenerife, it's not that Lineker, it's his brother, trading on the name.
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
