I’m with those calling for the cameramen to stop getting these snot moments and really chasing after the shirt-lifting and exchanging!
God, that’s disgusting… I hate when they show that on the telly instead of the shirt swapping. Damn camera men! Can we please go back to the thighs, abs and bums?
Yack. I’m not a fan, judging from this picture only.
Why do footballers do this sort of thing (and spit) so much? I know that the exercise gets the “juices flowing” but we don’t see tennis players do that!

They all bloody do it tho, and cause me to puke up in my mouth a little. There are some players I just couldn’t bear to see do it. Micheal Owen, you snot and my love for you will be O.V.E.R!!!
He’s totally blowing a snot rocket. Handy when there’s no tissue but visually disgusting.
I’m not saying that it isn’t gross, but both spitting and “snot rockets,“ as I’ve learned to call them, are actually quite necessary in high cardio/endurance sports. When athletes run for an extended amount of time, they get dehydrated and their saliva thickens, forming mucus in their throats making it harder to breathe, which is why they’re spitting all the time. And the snot rockets need to be done because it’s cold outside and when noses get cold, they run, and it’s not like they can carry around a tissue in their socks. It’s just more convienent and faster this way, no matter how revolting it may be.
itchin for a pickin
At least they don’t have a picture of the mucus coming out.
You see snot blowing in hockey as well. The cold arenas much like a frosty pitch are the cause, I assume.
Gross in any sport.
Here in the US we call that a “farmer blow”. Vile.
I hate snot.
I think I threw up in my mouth a little.
Emma, the spitting is not half as bad as it is in baseball. The snot blowing, on the other hand…I don’t think I’ve seen it anywhere but football. It is slightly gross.
I agree about the Kleenex! Another minging thing they all do is spit openly. It’s like, fellas, you might just trip over into that area you just spat in!
Yup, that’s definitely a blow. Why can’t we seem to get through a match without at least six close-ups of men spraying their snot out of their noses? The ref should carry a travel pak of kleenex in his shorts pocket and dispense them to the needie.
I hate that snot blowing thing ballers do. It ruins my sexy fantasies of them. Oooh thighs, arms, abs…SNOT!!
Quite fit without his fingers up his nose though.
worse – blowing!
Eeeew that is so gross!! I know its an essential part of being a baller but can they not be a bit more subtle about it? and also why do the cameras always pan in on them when they’re doing that but never when they are lifting their shirts up to wipe their face with (and expose those perfect abs!)
I 100% agree with the Kleenex. it’s a must.
it’s such a turn off when they do that. ew.
don’t think he’s good-looking with or without his snot.
at the end of the day he is poss one of the fittest players ever.
so he can be doing anything and i wouldnt care:)
