He grabbed a phone!!! Oh my god! Call the army right away, this guy is a menace and shouldn't be allowed to live in our society.
What the fuck? This guy has done absolutely nothing.
Maybe that's the standards in your country but in our country he was in a position of influence.
The German national team has set high standards for itself and does function as a role model for millions of people in Germany. Same goes for the big clubs. Football is a really big deal here and we not only have some great athletes but also great personalities to look up to. An athlete needs discipline and if he can't show discipline as a public figure he has no place in a diciplined team. There are plenty of young talents trying to break into the ranks, so there is no need to keep someone who is not able to uphold these standards.
Compare it to politicians or judges "just being humans" and losing their position for it.
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
