    Ugh, what is wrong with these guys? I'm sure his son has provided him a nice house and enough cash to do whatever he chooses, but he apparently still needs to feel the "big shot". What a moron.

      :) Totally. Let's just hope that little Kai doesn't get their looks(eventhough he already looks a lot like his daddy) because he is way to adorable now :)

    I'm sure Wayne Rooney takes really good care of his parents!! It's just going to give more negative publicity to his son.

    I don't understand that his son is doing so well in his team and he does this.
    They're very similar phisically :)

      I know. Rooney has so much money he probabbly doesn't even know the exact number. And his dad does this. I would be embarassed too :)
