He's very dedicated and hard working, most people just don't about that side of him.

Becks also has a messed up ankle. Played 90+ minutes for England, takes a trans-atlantic flight[which is bad for messed up ankles] and is expected to play tonight.

Yet, idiots like primetime claim he's just a prettyboy and nothing else

If you call that dedication.

I call it selling out on a team that just paid you a quarter of a Billion dollars
to play for them.

But I forgot... Beckham is just a brand now. He just needs to show
up to the game because soccer is doing horrible in the states.

I wish he would of reinjured his ankle in that game... then the Galaxy's
investment wouldn't look so great.

Did anyone watch the England game? You could tell he was in pain and his ankle was pissing him off, but did he stop once? ..... no! He gave it his all and was one of the best players on the field.

So, playing for your national team and showing pride, then coming back home and playing for your club team within 24 hours while having a bad ankle is not dedication? Damn, that's news to me. And yes, he is just a brand, that's why he had two assists in the Galaxians game vs the RedBull:rollingeyes:.

Just stop posting, it's obvious you know nothing about the world of sports.

link?....I played soccer growing up

all I ever said was this:

a jar of Jim Thorpe's piss > Beckham

I never said soccer wasn't athletic...I am just sick of you people acting like Beckham is ****ing MJ...

he is great and all but his fame did not come from his skills...and no one has even attempted to prove me wrong on that.

Yes it has. When he played for Man Utd, they won like 4 titles in a row.
He was one of the best 3 players in the world one year. When Manchester won the Champions league in 1999, Beckham assisted on both goals from a corner kick.
One of the best free kick takers of all time. His crossing is a thing of beauty as well.
Make no mistake, he's a great looking guy married to an ex Spice Girl which gave him a great deal of popularity but he'd be just a pretty face if he wasn't a good football player.
England sucks without him. He's their engine.
He's a great, great player.
Shame most people don't think that way because they don't know what they're talking about.
Beckham is and was a great player. That's a fact.

And soccer is pretty physical, believe it or not. It's probably more physical than basketball, too.
