"Today, many French people will ask why we pay so much out to people who respect the public so little. When the French are suffering from things such as a fall in their purchasing power and yet see players pocketing 100,000 euros at the end of this competition before then showing contempt for their public it is very painful."

-- French Socialist lawmaker Olivier Faure objects to the $125,000 bonuses paid to each player of the French team whose quarterfinal exit was marked by Samir Nasri's foul-mouthed exchange with a journalist. (AFP)

    Well said. He's right. I will probably very rarely in my life go on record agreeing in full with what a socialist politician says, but Monsieur Olivier Faure is on target. His comment is a bullseye. Merci beaucoup.
