|Wisdom and Courage|
Wisdom and courage were the favorite virtues the people who founded my favorite football team, Sheffield Wednesday, as they gave the club the motto “Consilio et Animis”, meaning wisdom and courage.
Today this same team avoided relegation from the Championship, but was it because of my team’s wisdom and courage?
Alas no, it was probably more to do with their relative footballing talent, bought in the footballers’ marketplace. Wisdom and courage are attributes that are seldom bought in the marketplace.
It’s a concern that footballing talent is marketable commodity.
Badly behaved footballers can sell their talents for mucho money.
