the campaign encourages people and organizations to make changes that can help to empower women and girls. Now. You know what agents? I'll tell you the album, I'll tell you album. First Agents, Yeah, liters Mina Raiola Kia Direction. Just the name too of the biggest agents. Yeah. The money that these guys make is uncertain deals is absolutely absurd. Raiola. He made anything from 20 to 60 million off the part of the deal. And depending on what sources you believe. And it's one of them was where for you for reintroducing regulation on agents by summer of 2019. I still don't get why they got rid of the regulations in the first place. I really don't because you've got so many young players involved in football and you got to think if those young players are getting bad advice, then look at look at the spiral of negativity that that can cause. Yeah, well see Jermaine pennant on jeremy Kyle. It's that very recently. So it's like that's how some careers can end up if not, if not managed properly. And if you don't get good advice from your age is now you've got guys like Robbie Fowler who has said in his book that he got very good advice from his agents back in the day to go into property, look how successful he is. Now, if paul, Gascoyne had a better region, maybe he might have had his problems. That's just me prognosticate and I don't know for sure. But the fact of the matter is, agents are literally getting away with Blue Murder. Every one of them was, you could have like a journeyman player, moving, moving from club to club every year. And of course, the agent is earning money off that, so he's going to encourage it and they're not being regulated, means that they're not being scrutinized. And David Gold, co chairman of West Ham, fair play for, for standing up and saying, yeah, they're draining money out of football because they are. And in regards relating it back to the wembley story, in terms, in terms of you could actually levy, like impose some sort of levy or tax on agents so that, that money can be funneled back into grassroots football because that's where it's needed. You don't need all these agents taking money out of the game as a disgrace when grassroots football is struggling. It's it's it's almost dying a slow, painful death. And it's tough to see it, it's tough to see it happen in the grocery.
