David Beckham turned down a £15 million move to Newcastle last week.

Apparently he can't bring himself to join the Magpies after what the Toon Army did to Indonesia and surrounding areas.

    I really shouldn't laugh at that awful joke, but I can't help it.

    Poor me.

    Toon Army = nickname for Newcastle fans.

    bit harsh don't ya think, i'll always see the funny side to a joke, it's only words and jokes are word plays, thats all, there's no harm intended usually.

    It's the fear of offence. Sky overeacted, simple as that. The joke isn't even aimed at the victims but rather a poor pun at Newcastle's expense.

    Hell, it's not like it's a popular programme either, so I doubt many people saw it and even less complained. But the fear of bad publicity is enough.

    Sad example of life in the new millenium.

    Of course, the guy is a total wanker (IMHO) and I'm glad to be shot of the pathetic, self opinionated, egocentric crap pundit.
