I like David Beckham. I think he’s the classic effort player. He has one extraordinary skill – free kick taking – and gets by on guts and fitness. He’s loyal to a fault, especially to England, for whom he wants to play one more time in 2010 in South Africa. I’m not justifying his actions toward Los Angeles and I think fans have the right to say things about actions on the field, within reason. I’ve no idea if fans went overboard though I do know that both the fans and Beckham come off looking terrible here.
