According to the BBC News Mr Rooney needed a Police Escort to the Hospital. There didn't appear to be any crowds. So why?

... that some people are interested in soccer, so Wayne Rooney's injuries, drinking likes, eating habits, wife, his wife's injuries, his wife's drinking likes, his wifes eating habits, his wife's shopping habits, his wife's dress sense....... ad nauseum...... are of interest.

Whether you like or not football is the popular game in the UK and the World.

It is of great importance, whether you like it or not, to many England fans whether our best player is fit for the up coming World Cup, the most watched single sporting event in the world.

That England will not win the World Cup, with or without Rooney is irrelevant.

to some people, and to some people some sport is important, other sport is not.

I like football, but I find F1 racing as boring as watching concrete set. I understand that others are extremely interested in it however, and I respect the fact.

Let's try to avoid these endless 'Who is Wayne Rooney?' type comments every time the subject crops up. Asking 'Who?' in this context gives the game away - you know perfectly well who Wayne Rooney is. if you don't you must have been living in a hole in the ground for the last ten years.

Concrete does not set it cures.

Despite the title, ulrich was not posting about Wayne Rooney or his popularity, but why he merited a police escort to hospital.

I agree with ulrich - why?

Despite the popularity of football I suspect that many soap "stars" are far more well known, or even more popular, than Rooney.

Do they merit a police escort?

Morddwyd. I am glad someone read what I wrote.
I was quoting what the BBC said, I heard it twice I didn't read it. It was probably a wrong report, but wouldn't have surprised me. So FE I find your comments rather rude, if I or someone else said you had been living in a hole in the ground you would not be pleased.
