I saw this ad earlier. Two weeks ago Eurosport sent me an email with a Beckham’s jersey crossed out. It seems everyone is taking different approaches on marketing Becks lately.

No mention of his tussle with that fan?

He has never been or ever will be the type of player that a pure soccer fan wants to see a lot of. His skill set is one dimensional and really not very exciting unless he hits a free kick in the upper 90 from 40 yards. If his appeal was supposed to win over American football fans, then it shows the disconnect between the soccer minority and the American majority. A non soccer fan is going to be more enthralled with a Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldinho or a Pele’, not an average midfielder with set piece specialties. Not to say he is without talent, but it’s not the kind of flare the average American is going to stop and say, “this is something I want to see more of”.

But still people TALK about it. He is still in the news and on Sports Center. That is why he is here, and he is doing what he was hired to do. Make a buzz.
