DIARY: One of the more fascinating facts to emerge

One of the more fascinating facts to emerge from last week’s punch-up between the two Blackburn players, Graham Le Saux and David Batty, was that Le Saux is the latest in a long line (well, a short queue) of players to have been marked out as different for having a brain.

One of the more fascinating facts to emerge from last week’s punch-up

between the two Blackburn players, Graham Le Saux and David Batty, was

that Le Saux is the latest in a long line (well, a short queue) of

players to have been marked out as different for having a brain.



According to the Sun, Le Saux was instantly ridiculed in the dressing

room because he read the Guardian. Not yet a punishable offence in Tory

Britain, but extraordinarily perverse behaviour in a world where the

former Chelsea star, Pat Nevin, was deemed odd for reading the Face.



Let this be a warning to all of you with weird media habits: account men

who read the D&AD annual, creatives who read briefs and planners who

read ‘Private View’. The same goes for anyone connected to advertising

who reads the Reader’s Digest or watches ITV.
