    Should John Terry Step Down from the England Captaincy?

    You can`t compare the behaviour of a teenager - which Rooney was at the time of that scandal - with that of a man in his late 20s who is married and has kids. Immature teenagers make mistakes, men in their late 20s are suppose to have learnt from them. By all accounts Terry has a long history of cheating on his wife and instead of learning from the heartache he must have caused her he goes one step further and cheats on her with the wife of his best mate. No-one is saying that he`s the only footballer to have cheated on his missus but so far he appears to be the only one who has cheated with best mate`s missus. Teammates don`t have to like each other - apparently Cole and Sheringham couldn`t stand each other off the pitch - but it helps if they respect each other. By cheating with the partner of his best mate Terry will have lost a lot of respect within the England squad and that is why he should be replaced as captain.

    • u cant excuse paying for sex with age.
      plenty of teenagers dont pay for sex.

      admit it, u are just being biased.

      at least im objective.

      rooney is no role model-
      paying for sex scandal
      red cards
      violent conduct
      regularly verbally abuses refs which u could say is bullying.

      at least JT didnt pay for it.

        oh whoopie do paying for sex is a big no no ???
        what persentage of women do you think have sex for reward?
        that go with a fella for his flash car and buys you things
        that cut of sex until they get something they want ?
        that make themselves available for the price of a few drinks?
        did Rooney troll the street annoying innocent byestanders for sex, NO he got it elsewhere a damn sight less sordid than some of the examples I have mentioned prior

      • "at least im objective."

        Well no. You're applying a whole lot of subjective value judgements. As are most here. There's no such thing as objective when it comes to judging sex scandals.

        Which isn't to defend JT, or otherwise.


      • He's paying for it now.

      • I think your missing the point

        Players f*ck up, they aren't angels and most of them make mistakes in their private lives. For me unless its a criminal offence it should stay their private lives.
        This however is different, Terry could have had an affair with anyone and it wouldn't have been a football issue. He, however, chose his team mate for club and country. That becomes a football issue. Getting his end away was more important than this team mates, more important then the split it will cause in the england dressing room (and it will cause a split, if someone you worked with had an affair with your friends missus how would you behave towards them). As england captain he has a responsibility to his team, he needs their respect, he needs to be someone they will follow and he's betrayed that.

        You can try and put it back to rooney or any other footballer who has screwed up but if you can't see that this is different then you don't understand the concept of team mate.
